Funny things are friends; they can inspire you at the most random moments. I randomly called a friend of mine as she was rushing home from work. She asks if I would hold for a couple of minutes. I could hear the anticipation in her voice of needing to get off the phone. She returns my call 5 minutes later and the first thing she says is “…amazing, I can take on the world after taking a piss!” after laughing hilariously at what she’d said, I was compelled by her statement. The point she was making was that she cannot start a conversation with me until she could really sit down and pay attention. If I asked for advice she wouldn’t want to steer me wrong as her mind was completely off focus.
I could be wrong, but I see relevance to the following; have you ever been so inspired that you’re bursting with so much excitement that you feel the need to begin embarking on a challenge without weighing any outcome? Your emotions are running high all you want to do is just get involved and before you’ve realized, something’s taken a wrong turn because you made a haste decision? Sometimes we forget the importance of grounding ourselves and taking the time to really think. We sometimes silence our instinct as we get overrun by ambition. It’s a thin line but it’s always good to be aware of it.
I know when I feel the spark, I let the ideas ignite and then expect fireworks without giving it a second thought. Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to just take a breather, get comfortable and think a little clearer…it can have invaluable impact and can save you a lot of headache in the long run. Happy New Year!

One thought on “How to Avoid Silencing Your Instinct”
You also talk a lot of shit when you are fired up. I came to the conclusion that being fired up or depressed are no good states to make any decisions.
