I believe that our intuition/gut feelings should control our decision making process.
Have you ever ran into a problem and then said to yourself,
"I had a feeling that this was a bad idea"?
Why do we go against our intuition? How do we help ourselves to listen to our gut feelings about situations? How do we know when wishful thinking is masking our intuition?
I think we let things like fear and guilt get in the way. We make decisions based on what others will think, or what we think someone else needs and not what we need.
Sometimes I would make a decision based on intuition and it would work out for me and anger others. Many times, I would not listen to my intuition and give in to the desires of someone else.
I need to be true to myself without worrying about others.
My husband would often talk about "being selfish", he felt we needed to learn to say "NO" to others and "YES" to us.
It is time to say "YES" to "ME".
I've talked with my daughter about my plans and she is very supportive. I have talked to a few of my friends, but most people think that I am just leaving to go to my daughters house in Colorado and maybe do a little sightseeing.
Except for my blogging buddies, I feel that I am all alone in my excitement for the future, I wish I had someone close by to share in the planning.
I am ready and deep down I know this is the right thing for me to do. I have such an overwhelming desire to get moving, but I am also being practical and making sure I take care of paperwork and finances before I leave.
So, I should be ready to hit the road by June.
