It was like I had directions right in front of me, and there was a bright, blinking arrow pointing one direction. How do you not trust that big, bold sign? You trust it, because it's so obvious, and it's being very adement with every flash for attention. So, I made a decision, travelled down the direction of the arrow. I continued for a kilometer or two, only to notice that things just didn't seem right. Nothing looked familiar, nothing felt right, I got really scared, anxious and knew I had made a huge mistake. I had to go back and go down the other way, but the only thing is that my map is gone now.
How do I get back and will I even be able to?
The normal me would go into fits of panic and worry herself sick until she was beside herself. And yes, I will admit I gave myself a taste of that. But, in the end, you have to trust that your intuition will keep you exactly where you should be. That everything is how it's supposed to be and that life always has a funny way of working things out.
There has never been a time in my life that after all the worry and the regret that I thought this isn't right. It always works out. Sometimes, just not in the "oh-so-perfect" way you have planned. That's why it is so important to live in the now and not worry about the future or past.. that's another post topic I will wait to ramble on about haha.
To this date, I do not regret a single thing in my life. There are definitely some painful memories that stand out, but do I regret their occurrence? Never. It brought me to where I am today, and shaped who I am. Everything was meant to be.
You can apply the previous "directions story" to any situation in your life where you feel that your intuition has steered you in the wrong direction. Here's the question you have to ask yourself: would you have done anything differently? When you were standing there deciding left or right, how would you have chosen differently? You wouldn't have, and that's where I feel that the phrase "everything happens for a reason" comes in.
Sure, you can feel so strongly that you made the wrong decision, and maybe you did, but, you made it for a reason. Not because you should have continued down the wrong road, but because you needed to realize that the wrong road isn't pretty and isn't what you want. Intuition is always right, and being able to listen to it will make your life a whole lot happier in the end. When we don't listen to our intuition and take the easier road because we are afraid of the unknown, short term pain or being uncomfortable we end up being unhappy long term.
What is life without happiness?
What is life without love?
In my opinion, nothing. The point to life is love and happiness :)
