Do You Trust Yourself?
Happy Monday, lovelies! I’m at the beach and not supposed to be working (did anyone else feel the new moon this weekend that said SLOW DOWN?!), but you can read my musings at Clementine Daily where I’m honored to be serving as guest editor all month. My first post is actually an interview that led me down the rabbit hole of a topic I wrestle with daily: trusting myself and my intuition. It’s a practice that I’ve learned takes practice, but essential to discovering our higher selves and living our truth. My biggest challenge isn’t tuning in to my intuition (it’s pretty loud + clear); it’s not letting fear or societal pressures or the voice in my head drown out what my heart and gut are trying so desperately to say. When I don’t trust myself, life might be more comfortable in the short term but eventually who I am and what I really want returns, louder and often bearing consequences if I don’t pay attention. They can be as small as buying a blouse that doesn’t do me any favors (but everyone else it doing it), to spending time with people whom I’ve outgrown when I really just want to read a book in bed, to life-altering decisions like taking a job that doesn’t feel quite right. I almost ALWAYS know the answer. And so do you. So why do we ignore our intuition? And what experiences have taught you how to trust it? Discuss below, or head over to Clementine Daily! XOXO
