It Must be a Duck!

You know the saying, “if it walks like a duck, and sounds like a duck, then it must BE a duck”?

Many times, we just don’t want to admit it – that it IS a duck.
“I’m sure she didn’t mean it that way.”
“He’s just having a bad day.”
“Probably something I ate – I’m sure it’s nothing.”

Well, perhaps they DID mean it that way, a bad day had nothing to do with it, and your body is trying to tell you something important.

It all comes down to trusting ourselves, our intuition, our bodies’ signals. At some level, we all know what’s right for own selves. That little voice that normally keeps us on track gets buried under shoulds and others’ needs. Keep that up and we can’t hear it anymore and forget what its little voice sounds like.

Listen up! Listen to YOU and YOUR thoughts and YOUR body. Get still and quiet… and honest with yourself. What’s working? What’s not? What needs to change? Trust that little voice.

On the outside, change may seem ridiculous – that job is so prestigious (yet the hours and the boss are crazy), the house is so great (yet the mortgage is out of control and creates a lot of stress), the car screams success (yet its visits to the shop are way too frequent), and surely the kids will call and visit every weekend (yet they ARE starting their own lives).
(There’s that duck, quacking its way into our awareness.)

So, what now? What’s next for you?
First step: Admit change is in order. Something’s up and not working. Get clear on what it is and commit to making things better. You may have to let something go.
Next step: Be open to more authentic, fitting opportunities. New doors open, brilliant ideas come to mind, and the right people and resources show up.

Who knows YOU better than YOU? Trust yourself. Pay attention. Get real. YOU know the best path. Do what it takes to get on it, and then stay on it. Keep moving along that amazing lifelong journey you deserve. And do notice the ducks!If it walks like a duck...

Choose to have a great week!
