A reminder to tap into those feelings of hesitation to uncover what feels right. $25 giclee print available at the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

Was hanging out with a friend today who needed some advice on where to take things next with his work. Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads with no idea which direction you want to go? Each path seems viable and enticing, each one has an upside and a drawback… and so the result is you just sit STILL. This particular friend is staring at wide open opportunity, with a number of different options that seem possible.

It’s in those moments when I try to do whatever I can to identify what I know I most certainly DON’T want to do. What kind of clients I DON’T want to take on, what work DOESN’T make me feel good, when I DON’T feel my best, etc.

Sometimes those feelings of hesitation and refusal can be easier to detect than what feels right, and by tapping into that, it’s often the first step to deciphering those softer, more nuanced voices of intuition telling you what you truly do want to do.
