Why can't we all be Olivia Pope? Why can't we all be strong, unshakeable women who know what they want and how to get it done? Why can't we all look that good in a head to toe white pant suits!? Why can't we all go a million miles a minute and never look run down (face it, that woman is flawless). I could keep going... I mean...I want to be a gladiator in a suit (don't deny it you do too)... but I will refrain.
You get it, Olivia is the TBT but that's not my point. My point is that she knows how/when to follow her gut because her gut is 'never wrong'. SWEET LORD! I wish my gut would quiet down long enough for me to know 100% what it is feeling... I am not referring to the cacophony of dietary related gut feelings, but rather the instinctual, life path feelings which spring up inside. Should I be doing this? Should I take that job? Am I just saying yes/no out of fear? Or am I saying no because I know how poorly this could all go? What do I want? Where do I want to go? Where is my career headed? What do I need out of life? How do I get it?
My 'gut instincts' have a bad habit of bursting into a symphony of sound, playing over itself trying to find the right harmony. I second guess everything; what to wear, where to go, what to do... it is terrible and no way to live, so I am bound and determined to get my 'gut' in shape (my actual gut is in great shape thanks to Yoga with Adrienne).
The fact is, at the end of the day we need to choose, we MUST choose. We choose how we respond to things, we choose how to act, we choose to follow or not follow our gut...we choose the life we are going to lead. I am learning to stick to my convictions, accept my choices, follow my instincts, because I have to believe that if I do I will finally find my harmony.
What is your gut telling you? Other than the fact that you should probably go eat a cookie...
