I have a really strong sense of intuition. Not in a way that I should have my own Charmed tv show or grown up as Matilda or anything, but I get really strong gut instincts. I’m pretty sure I get it from my mom. I actually base a lot of my life and business decisions off intuition… even sometimes down to where I submit weddings for features. And I don’t think very hard about business decisions… which actually made me laugh out loud as I typed this. I’m not telling you not to think, but perhaps stop thinking so much and start doing more. When you feel that gut instinct that you want more in your business or more in your life just do it. What bigger of a nudge are you looking for? It’s the gut instincts that tell you not to do something that you need to really listen to.
Some call it intuition, some call it fate, some call it coincidence, and others call it God. I believe God knows our life path long before we ever do and that he pulls on our heart strings when we need it most. But! To each their own of what they want to call it.
Yesterday, I was in yoga and could not focus for the life of me. I swear I must have been a second behind everyone else because I just wasn’t processing what I was supposed to be doing. I looked over at Royce so annoyingly content in his practice and didn’t understand why this class was challenging me so hard. All I could think about was business. Was I doing everything I needed to be doing? Was I pushing hard enough? What should I be doing differently? Am I going in the right direction? I laid down at the end of practice in savasana and felt defeated and angry for not clearing my head during the 1 hour I had dedicated to me. I always pray in the last 5 minutes of class, usually thanking God for many aspects of my life then praying for guidance in the areas I feel I really need it. So I began to pray and then the instructor said, “The best is yet to come.” I literally almost cried. Out of all the classes I’ve been to I’ve never heard an instructor say that. It was the very line from my new Created Lovely Bride website that I’ve been stressing about for the last month. The line I’m using for all of my new bride branding. Call it whatever you want, but it was everything I needed to hear in that moment. The little nudge I needed to keep doing what I’m doing.
