“This might sound crazy, but…”
I hear this phrase quite often when I have clients ask themselves this question:
“What do I want/need right now?”
Whether its about comforting themselves through their grief or a dream they have for their future or an act of self-nurturance, the answer is often deemed something “unusual” or “not done” in our current society’s eyes.
I tell them to do it anyway. Whatever it is.
I believe, when we set aside out shoulds and shouldnts and listen to what comes, our future self – the self that is already through whatever our current circumstances are – gifts us with our answer. Our future self has already been there, done that.
Trust yourself. You already know.
(Sometimes, I need to good reminder of this myself!)
