Now which one do you think I should listen to?
Opinions. Everyone has got ‘em. I got them coming at me in spades.
Except here is something I have learned. For every single person in my life there are that many opinions…and usually more.
Opinions are just what someone believes. What we believe is what comes to pass (consciously and subconsciously). And so here and now I have made the conscious decision to not listen to anybody (unless I want to) and just follow my intuition.
It has never failed me in the past. It sure as hell not gonna fail me now.
What are some things people have told all of you that make you get all mind chattery? Does anyone else have this happen to him or her?
When did it not become ok to trust our gut?
Joseph Campbell (amazing author) said, what I consider to be, three of the most powerful words ever spoken (EVER!!!)….”Follow your bliss.”
“Follow your bliss, and doors will open where there were none before…”
Now that is some advice I think I will take.
