Living each day much muchier
Trust your own instinct. Your mistakes might as well be your own, instead of someone else’s.
Intuition is a spiritual faculty and does not explain, but simply points the way.
Florence Scovel Shinn
There’s an expression that starts ‘deep down, I always knew …’ It finishes in a myriad of ways. Deep down I always knew (s)he didn’t love me the same way. Deep down I always knew I’d leave this city. Deep down I always knew it would hurt, but I wanted to believe differently.
We know these things with surprising certainty but don’t want to acknowledge them until they’re real. Before then, it can’t be true. It’s just a feeling. There’s nothing tangible we can point to, no way to explain it to someone else. So, we choose not to act or to pretend things are as they appear on the surface. We can claim innocence at the end then and nobody is ever the wiser. Except, deep down, we always knew…
Your instinct is what you know before your doubts, self preservation and habits crowd in over the top. It’s what you know before everyone else tells you otherwise. Trust what you know. Trust your instinct.
What is it telling you?
