If you’re anything like me, you’ve made a tonne of silly decisions and mistakes.
Most of mine were fun at the time — at least to start.
Many went on a little too long and stopped being fun at all.
A few left a hook in me that I couldn’t get free: several bad habits; harmful ways of thinking about the world; a mountain of debt; a damaged body.
At one point, it didn’t seem like there was any hope of making up for all the bad humours I had acquired over the years. After all, why stop if it’s already too late?
May as well enjoy it while it lasts, however short that turned out to be.
But as the fanfare of youth dribbled into the humdrum of middle age, I began to hear something else: myself—my body, asking me to stop.
And every day, it got harder to ignore. Eventually, I had to listen.
One of the greatest powers we have is the intuition that comes from listening to our bodies; our hearts, heads, and knees (they can predict the weather).
What is yours nagging you about?
And are you listening?
