Life is full of question marks isn't it?
I often encourage people with the phrase, "Whatever you are looking for, you are looking with!" This means that deep down we all have our own answers. We intuitively and instinctively know what to do. Often fear, self-doubt, anxiety and the opinions of others can block out our own voice. There are times when trauma and crisis can emotionally and mentally paralyze us. We do need to consult with trusted people to talk things through and gain clarity. Then, there are times when you need an expert in a field you are unfamiliar with. You don't know what you don't know. Once you are equipped with information, the answer becomes obvious. Yet sometimes that nagging inner voice guiding us to take a specific action...is scary! A therapist, coach, mentor or spiritual advisor can help. Having a safe space to speak those truths you are afraid to say out loud can help you take the next steps. It is important to have people on your team that have your best interests at heart. Even then, you must take whatever advice or guidance given and run it through your own filter of truth... your faith...that still small voice of God. I encourage you to explore and grow in your faith. Get quiet with yourself. As you develop your intuition and learn how to hear, you will know when you know. In my journey in the last 5 years of being a widow/single mom/sole provider there has been many times when I was gripped with fear and said, "I don't know what to do!" and my dear friend would say, "then wait until you do." Sometimes doing nothing rather than making an abrupt and irrational move is best. If you learn to sit with it, feel the feelings and trust.... you will know when you know!
