How profanity helps me make decisions
We make hundreds or thousands of decisions every day. How can you make sure you’re making the right choice? There’s a rule I’ve been trying to live by, and maybe you’d like to try it on for size…
Years ago, I was clothing shopping with my best friend (and if you know me, you know this was a huge chore! I find shopping exhausting and overwhelming most of the time). But she taught me something that has stuck with me not only for fashion decisions, but for all decisions in general.
She said, "when you wear an outfit, you either think HELL YES or the answer is 'no'."
HELL YES or nope.
And she was totally right! To this day, I'll only purchase an item if I really think ABSOF**INGLUTELY YES....otherwise, the answer is no.
And it's spilled over into the rest of my life, from what to eat for dinner to whether to stay in a relationship to deciding where to live. Because I want more of that expansive, amazing, THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER feeling in my life!
Because we can be in either protective + defense mode or growth + healing mode...and I want to do everything I can to spend more time in growth + healing mode, so surrounding myself with clothing and food and people and environments that help move the needle in that direction helps to cultivate resilience and an overall positive experience for my life.
So if that's what you're looking for too, maybe give this a try! Next time you're fussing over a decision (big or small), take a moment to notice:
Does it make you feel AMAZING or meh?
Do you feel EXPANSIVE or contracted when you think about each choice?
Do you think HELL YES!!! or ....well, anything else?
Are you feeling called to take better care of yourself? Wondering if now is the right time to commit to your health + happiness?
