Sometimes this is a good thing. We as humans have been taught to ignore our instincts, to devalue them, to look down our noses at people who do follow their instincts. And I honestly don`t know what force is at work. But I do know that I now stop and listen when the universe yells. Because it has not steered me wrong yet. Whereas my overdeveloped primate brain has steered me wrong. PLENTY.
Married two lawyers. That was not instinct, I can tell you that. Stupid brain.
Stayed in a career I hated for almost twenty years. That was definitely not instinct. All other animals know to run and not look back when their instincts tell them to flee.
And you know what? I`m pretty sure the universe has never yelled at anyone:
HEY! HEYYYY!!!! You are enjoying your life TOOOO much. Go get a job that takes over your life, makes you feel important, stresses you out, and makes you stay in it because you are afraid to go back to not being important. YOU NEED TO BE IMPORTANT!
No. The universe is not interested in any of that. What it does seem to be interested in, is:
4. meeting and learning from new people
5. pushing past your comfort zone.
6. doing the things you dreamed of as a child.
Problem with that is, I always wanted to be a cowgirl. Who knows, maybe it will be fun.
