The art of wanting

How do we know what we want? How many ‘mistakes’ are acceptable? And do we even ask ourselves the right questions, or are we afraid of the answers we find in ourselves?

I’ve found the answer is only complicated once we start seeing our wishes through the eyes of others. Would our parents approve? My best friend lives in a solid relationship, what would she think of my affair? Many of my female friends ache for kids and being a mother, I don’t and am not sure there is room for kids in my plan. Not that I have one, to others’ dismay.

Why should it matter? The ones in our life that love us, love us, basta đŸ˜‰ I’m sure I’ve made lots of choices others have never understood, yet for me, they were right. The ones I was most scared of felt most right to me, and I’ve always wondered why.

Since broadening my mind and trying out new activities is on my current agenda, on Monday I did yoga exercises suggested in a lifestyle magazine. Believe me, the sight was not pretty! The exercises are supposed to help you connect to your gut feeling. The article going with it stated that listening to our gut is difficult because our intuition as well as our fear are located in our stomach area. So maybe we feel afraid, or our intuition tells us we are right.

This helped me a lot to decide what I want, apparently all I need is to open my mind to the fact that it was the decisions my gut told me to make that were the right ones all along!?

No plan. No fear. Just doing what I want. Can it be that simple?
