What do to when your heart says one thing and our mind says another? We may be tied to a particular place where we feel at home, connected, safe. But then we are offered an opportunity to move elsewhere (literally or figuratively) that will be better for us at this time in our life.
We can either follow our heart or listen to our head…or perhaps appreciate that they are CONNECTED and figure out how to blend the emotional and the cerebral. How can we best position ourselves for moving ahead and being open to healthy changes in our lives?
Make the Decision: Consider others as well as ourselves. It can be helpful to talk to people we trust as long as we remember not to lose ourselves in the process. Nobody knows what our heart feels or what our head is thinking as well as we do. The best decisions are made when we can find ways to put both parts at ease. Research, consult, consider, breathe, welcome the fear and the excitement and take time.
