Learning how to make my own decisions at age 37 - so freeing!

Thursday, June 05, 2014

I worry too much about what others think, and about making the wrong decisions. I don't know how to trust my gut instinct. This is exhausting! I go around asking everyone else their opinion, or trust the opinion of those I rely on more than what I really believe deep down inside. So many times I look back at the end of something and it hasn't turned out the best and I'm able to see in hindsight that if I would have trusted my initial idea, it would have been fine.

What does this have to do with living a healthy life? Well...by learning how to trust myself I will reduce my stress, which helps me be healthier. I also think it will help me be more moderate in many things - eating, drinking, spending money. I'm not going to go around making decisions about what to eat, how to exercise, how/when to drink based on anyone else's opinion. I'm going to do my own research, trust my gut, and carry on. This week I've been doing this and it has been freeing. Guess there's a first time for everything.

    I often have trouble making depictions too. It's good that you're starting to rely on your own instincts.
