Do you trust yourself to decide?

Sunday 17th August, 2014

If you’re struggling to make a decision right now and can’t pick from the options that are in front of you, then don’t force yourself to choose.

Whether it is personal or professional, take some time out to stop and breathe and ‘come back to yourself.’

It may be that you keep walking to the tipping point and then away from it, wanting to be sure of ‘something’ that you can’t quite put your finger on. more »
