As humans we like to feel safe, we like to feel that we are in control of the situation, and more often than not we will choose a familiar path as opposed to something where we don’t know the outcome. For the majority of my life this was how I made my choices, and time and time again it brought me nothing but discontent. Through this experience, I learned that the voice of fear is not always to be trusted. I learned that these choices we make out of fear of the unknown more often than not makes us more confused and that in the end it’s these safe choices that will make us question if there shouldn’t be more to life. I’ve learned that the answer was ‘yes!’ – there most definitely should. I’ve learned to heed the call of my heart, to be more daring and spontaneous and just go for it without doubting and second guessing. I’ve learned that the safest path is not always the best path and that following your heart brings more peace and contentment than your imagined safe choices ever could. So stop rationalizing every little decision. Stop thinking about all the reasons it wouldn’t work, and start to go for that one reason why it will.
