I’ve touched on this subject before about how important (especially for women) it is to listen to your inner voice, your intuition, your gut feeling. You know that still, small voice inside that exists to help guide and direct your life. This voice is wiser, kinder, and more intelligent than the whiny, negative voice that blabs in your head. These days, my inner voice seems a bit absent when it comes to being positive, and the negative chatter is, at times, overwhelming.
Instead, my head is filled with constant thoughts of the pandemic, black lives matter, and the upcoming election. It’s like this constant umbrella that stays overhead and never leaves. Why are we, as a nation and as a world, going through all this? Why can’t we all just come together and take care of each other? Will there ever be a vaccine to end this craziness? Is the world economy going to totally tank? There are lessons to be learned…will we figure it out? I know there are still lessons I need to learn about myself, things I can do to have more positivity in my life, and ways I can bring myself back to having that wiser, kinder, and more intelligent voice.
I need to focus even more on all the things that I’m grateful for. I need to stop that critical voice in my head. I need to accept what I can’t control. I definitely need to cut back on the news and social media. (Although, this is kind of hard to do when you run a blog site and post daily.) And, I need to get back to exercising. All these things (and more) will help me a great deal, but it’s getting myself to do it, and do it consistently. And, I will. I’m realizing again that I’m still that strong person and I can accomplish what I put my mind to. I’m sorry if it seems like I’m just doing the verbal vomit, but I guess I just needed to vent a bit. I’ve been having these thoughts and feelings, and I just needed to express a few things.
Some of you may have noticed that I like to end some of my posts with a quote that has touched me and relates to the subject matter. I hope this one means something to you.
“Listen to your own voice, your own soul. Too many people listen to the noise of the world, instead of themselves.” — unknown
