Relax. Trust the process. Surrender. Good things come to those who wait.
The world, and social media sites are awash with pithy statements. Stop. Go. Om.
Along with our waning attention spans ( over half of you have stopped reading this already), our ability to trust our instincts has been lost as well.
Whether you’re stuck in a bad job or a bad relationship chances are you’ve sought out advice about what you should do. Stick it out or make a run for it?
In the past, I’ve had relationships that I’ve known are no good from the start. Hindsight is 20/20 of course, and I can see now that those relationships lasted as long as they did because I wanted a relationship, but the one I was in was not the one.
There have been other relationships that were interfered with by a third-party, and I took that as a sign it wasn’t meant to be. Hindsight reveals that it was a good relationship and the interfering party was wrong. Not just wrong, but wretched.
Whether it’s a lopsided friendship, job, questionable lover, relationship with a faith group or business partner, experience has taught me two things. First, engage your trusted friends and colleagues in a conversation to fully explore what may or may not be happening. Second, and most importantly, come to a conclusion and develop a course of action based on your own intellect and intuition.
Sounds simple doesn’t it?
Are the things that are meant to be, supposed to be a struggle, or feel effortless?
Now it’s time that I must seek some solitude and listen very closely to what my intuition is whispering….perhaps two fingers of bourbon will help….bottoms up darlings.
