Over the years, I’ve found myself walking the road less travelled.
Some people thought it was because I was headstrong. Others thought I was being ridiculous. Many judged me. A few watched cautiously.
The truth is, I never set out to do things differently and it’s not an easy path for anyone, especially a people pleaser like me.
These choices were all intuitively based. I had a deep, all-encompassing knowing that I couldn’t ignore. This was not something I was taught to do and I wasn’t keen to listen – but my intuition insisted I follow.
Some of these choices scared the heck out of me. My head was screaming, “What are you thinking?” And I didn’t know. It wasn’t always logical, but intuition isn’t about logic. Some things cannot be explained, they need to be felt. So I kept trusting my intuitive self as she guided me; “This is the way.”
It’s not easy to follow a different path. It can take real courage to listen to our inner voice, especially when it goes against cultural norms.
For whatever reason, I took a leap of faith. And, every time I would see how my decision placed me exactly where I needed to be.
I’m grateful my intuition has been strong. I find it easier to follow and know, even if I am scared, there is something great down the path.
