Allow yourself a pause, and let yourself really feel if the road ahead is the one for you. Sometimes, that’s what we need. A pause. When it’s not time to make a decision, either way. When it’s a time for pausing, and catching up with yourself. I have had times when I’ve been swaying back and fro between This or That. Never really been able to put my finger on which one it should be…. Thinking I made up my mind, only to regret it, and stay in indecisiveness for days, perhaps weeks on end. Until the time is suddenly there. When the decision is made, and you just know, that you’ve made the right decision. Or possibly, that the decision made you.
I think, we forget to grant us this pause sometimes. We push and push and have loads of intellectual arguments about why we need to make the decision, and preferably yesterday. But it won’t be the right one, the one best serving you, if you push it into existence. Let it come. Because it will. When it’s time. And in order to let it come, you just might have to let go of something else. You just might have to let go of the logical reasons why you should make the decision, perhaps let go of the opportunity in front of you, because it’s not time. If the decision doesn’t sit in you, all of you, your true Self, it won’t be right. It’s not time.
So let yourself pause, when pause is what comes up for you. When the times comes to make a move, you’ll know. That inner, very quiet and gentle voice, guiding you, with a soft yet very firm hand, in the direction your life is supposed to take.
Allow yourself the pause!
