Old Hindu saying
We can either stress about everything we might miss by following our instincts, or trust that we are making the right decisions based on our wants, values, and priorities.
Of course, this assumes we are able to hear and trust our instincts. It presupposes we’re willing to look within and then honor what we find.
Today if you find yourself worrying about the path you’re taking, remember: You made this choice for a reason. You can only enjoy it if you choose not to stress about it.
