Decisions get made based on what heads and hearts tell us. How much we choose to listen to either tends to vary but any decision we make is always based on logic and instinct. Recently, you made a decision based on your perception of what seemed practical and sensible. That was your head's influence. Now, it seems, your heart has something to say about the decision you made. It's not too late to give it a fair hearing and make a necessary adjustment.
Doing nothing in some way is not an option. You know that, though. That's why you're willing to embark upon some sort of previously untried plan. Whilst it's true that doing nothing will bring about a result, that result is one you don't want to see happen, especially in light of what you know you can do to change – or save – a certain situation. There is a valuable contribution you can make to a venture or arrangement now. That's why it's important you be allowed to do it.
'I can't be bothered'. We all say such words from time to time and usually when we sense exasperation is likely from doing a certain uninspiring task. Sometimes though, such apathy can work in our favor. Think, for example, how we escape certain tense situations through being unwilling to enter into them. It is your unwillingness to play a part in escalating a certain tense situation that will play the biggest part in reducing or eliminating it. Relax and be flexible.
The greatest pressure we experience is often what we put upon ourselves. We perceive tension where none really exists. We sense a need to defend ourselves where simple, pleasant conversations will suffice. All too often, we get the end of the proverbial stick. It's important to bear this in mind where you sense urgency or a need to react in some way now. Consider the fact that you might be overreacting to a situation that doesn't warrant such attention give to it.
One successful person would say that success is measured by sums of money in bank accounts. Another would say it is measured by how much we love what we do on a daily basis. Others would say there is balance to be met between the two. Where your material security is concerned, take a moment to look at what has changed and is still very new. Give a very positive and rewarding process more time. Reassurance that you made a right choice is imminent.
We know we rarely get second chances to make first impressions. People are quick to draw conclusions based on those made instantly and often unconsciously. With that in mind, give thought to certain conclusions you're drawing now. Do they feel right? Do you feel there is no need to question them? Chances are, your intuition is not letting you down now, so trust it to help you to see and feel something that goes beyond the obvious.
Sometimes, we fail to understand others' motivations. We see what they're doing but are unable to connect with why they're doing it. They clearly know something we don't and we recognize limits that exist in terms of how much we can involve ourselves, comment or be critical. If we truly believe we're helping someone to see the error of their ways, then all we can do is make the point in the hope it is well received. Be careful how strong you convey such a point to someone now.
People who deliberately drive slower than speed limits encourage those behind them to overtake and increase numbers of traffic accidents. Such drivers respond defensively, saying although a speed limit is X miles per hour, it doesn't mean they have to drive that speed. They're missing a point about how important they are in terms of ensuring safe and consistent flow. Avoid the tendency to deliberately disrupt or obstruct a process that wants only to run smoothly now.
All too often, we delay making decisions or taking action because we believe we don't have 'something' available to us. We believe that, to make something wonderful happen, we need every 'i' to be dotted and every 't' to be crossed. We believe everything must be in place in a particular way before we can do what we must do. There's something you need to do now but you're likely to believe yourself to be unprepared. All you need is a bit of courage, nothing else.
We don't want to be reminded of all that's seemingly wrong in our world or with a particular plan or arrangement. We can, without too much difficulty, see for ourselves how slow processes are or little cooperation we seem to be receiving from those we hoped would be more supportive. Before you allow negativity to creep into your world, look a bit more closely at how far down the road with a plan you actually are. Then, look for the foolproof qualities within it because they exist.
Sometimes, when we push against something that appears heavy and unmovable, we discover it is more movable than we thought it was. Either its weighty appearance was deceiving or we discover momentum works in our favor in ways we didn't expect or anticipate. Bear this in mind with something you perceive to be a difficult task. If you're willing to give effort, you're likely to discover a process commences that makes the task much easier than you believed it would be.
The eye of the storm, we are told, is a calm place. It's interesting that safety can be found in amongst all that appears hostile and dangerous. To look around all that has been happening in your world of late, you have probably been grateful for refuge that could be taken in the eye of a proverbial storm. This has, at least, allowed you to see clearly all that has demanded your time and patience. The storm is now subsiding. Make an effort to lose defenses you've grown used to.
