Making Big Decisions Intuitively

I was recently asked how I make big decisions. How do I know what to do when I'm faced with a choice that is terrifying and huge and potentially life changing?

What do you do when you're so confused you can barely think? When the pros and cons lists become meaningless?

How do you make the decision when it feels so massive you're absolutely paralyzed?

When this decision paralysis becomes apparent, at that point it's time to turn inward.

I have a process I use when making big decisions. I break the whole situation down and get in touch with my feelings. The whole process may take several days or weeks, or sometimes i can have things figured out in just a few hours.

There are a lot of variables, every situation and every decision is different, but the process ultimately comes down to this:

Trust your intuition. Follow your heart.

When to Let Go of Your Intentions

When I started finding ways to further simplify my life, I began paying attention to the moon phases.

Not for any religious or spiritual reasons, but simply because the idea of living according to monthly cycles makes sense to me. 

Sure, I could just set monthly goals.

But how awesome is it to have a constant, nightly reminder of where I'm supposed to be and what I'm supposed to be focusing on.

Seriously, I don't have to set reminders or alarms or calendar events or anything. 

There is literally a giant ball of light in the night sky that reminds me where I am in my monthly goals and life cycles.

Why I Let Go of Minimalism

I've been pursuing minimalism for quite some time now. Just about three years! 

That is probably the longest I've stuck with anything!

And it has been a wild ride! 

My journey started by getting rid of almost 75% of my possessions in what I fondly refer to as the "Great Purge of 2015. I over-hauled my wardrobe and home, and found a clear path to who I am underneath all the stuff.

Minimalism Gave Me the Life of My Dreams

When I started pursing minimalism almost three years ago, I thought I was just cleaning up my house a bit. Minimalism was just going to be a way to keep myself organized and less stressed.

But that's all that was going to change, right?

I couldn't see then what it really meant to create space in your life. And I didn't understand the beautiful possibilities that open up when you create that space.

I didn't realize minimalism was going to completely change the direction of my life.

Minimalism gave me the life of my dreams.

You Can Shift Your Story to Change Your Life

My life has changed dramatically over the past year.

And I don't just mean that I've grown as a person or anything like that. 

I mean, I have grown as a person. I am not at all the same person I was a year ago. Or even six months ago.

But when I say that my life has changed in the past year, I mean almost everything about my life is different. From my job to where I live to what kind of "luck" I have. Everything is different.

A Resolution for A Year of More

New Years is almost here!

I am so stinking excited. New Years is my favorite time of the year.

I love the possibilities that come with a fresh year. Getting to start over and have a new chance to create a life I'm in love with. There's just something so exciting and magical about getting a new start.

And then there's the resolutions!

I love making New Years resolutions.

Signs Your 9-5 Is Soul Crushing

Today, I want to talk to you about something that I think is really important. In fact, it's a huge part of why this blog even exists. I want to talk to you about your work situation.

A sad fact: we've all had jobs we don't like.

(If, by some chance, you haven't had a job you didn't like, please tell me your secrets!)

Now, don't get me wrong, it's natural to have a period of time where you work for a job you don't particularly love. Sometimes you just need the work and you gotta do what you gotta do.

Work is stressful, that's the very nature of it. But when does it cross the line from being just a job you dislike to being something that is considered "soul crushing?"
