When I saw this blouse at the consignment store, I snagged it right away. It had so much character; I wear it all the time. Dressed up and dressed down. It is one of my spring favorites!
This week I wanted to share a thought that's stuck with me for a little while now. I heard an acquaintance say that it is her firm belief that everyone has their own answers to their own dilemmas. Often, they don't need opinions, they just need help finding their gut solutions (and a good listening ear). Ultimately, I think we all know deep down what's best for us and our situations.
I tend to be a chronic advice-seeker. I ask my husband, my girlfriends, my sister, my sister-in-laws, my mom, my mother-in-law, and google what they would do. I have this bad late-night google habit, typing in the most ridiculously personal things (like when to stop having children... Google doesn't know, BTW). After becoming a mom, I realized, "Wait-I spent all that time seeking advice, and here I am back at my original answer anyway." It was a common pattern. I kind of had a breakthrough about trusting my own instincts.
I am still honing that skill. I do value other's opinions, but I am always trying to be a faster decision-maker, and not waste time searching for an answer I already have.
How about you? Are you confident in your instincts, or do you seek lots of advice?
Have a great week!
