Have you ever thought about whether you are the “expert” of your own life? It’s not something people usually ask each other, is it?
Let me remind you: You ARE the expert of our own life! How could it be any other way? You have experiences, thoughts, and feelings that are unique to you. Nobody else could ever know exactly what life is like for you.
Years ago, I made a major life decision after months of soul-searching, tears and reflection. It was definitely one of the most difficult decisions I had ever made. Some of the most important people in my life did not agree and highly discouraged me from that choice. I did it anyway, because I knew it was the correct decision for me.
What that experience taught me was this: I am the only one that knows what is best for me. Even if I stand alone, I need to be true to myself. Because right or wrong, I am responsible for the decisions in my life. I won’t be able to point at anyone else and say, “they told me to do it.”
Deep down inside, WE know what is best for us. Sometimes it isn’t easy, or what “everyone else” is doing.
But in the end if you can have the courage and be brave enough to make the best decision for you, you will have a happier life.
Here’s my challenge to you: go ahead and decide on something you have been avoiding. You know which one it is; the one that’s a little scary AND it’s the right choice for you.
Then, let me know! Share it in the comments or email me directly. I’ll be here to celebrate with you.
YOU really are the expert of your own life!
