Getting out of our own way~

Sometimes we are our own worst enemy. Actually, many times. Our reliance on the intellect, reasoning, and calculating every option, strategy, and "maybe" before making decisions (big or small) can actually be a hinderance. Decisions are always driven by our emotions; those clearly felt and a tangled web of emotions hidden deep within our consciousness. Often times, we make decisions based on what is logical, practical, and what will likely not be construed as a "mistake". The fear of being wrong drives the decision-making process.

What if we were do to nothing?

What if we were to simply listen to our bodies, our mind-chatter, and then to our heart? And, then be still. In the stillness, a simple solution may arise. Or, a 'knowing' of what to do next. Maybe, nothing is required. In the stillness, the awareness to simply let it be, or let it go, or allow for the next events to take place without intervention is the better way.

There is something to be said about not forcing a situation or making a decision quickly because the perception is that the current situation dictates immediate action. When we force outcomes, we miss the myraid of opportunities and solutions waiting to be born into existence.

Creating space for a fresh insight or perspective gives you the opportunity to 'get out of your own way' and witness the unseen possibilities.
