Being Thankful: My Inner Voice

Today I am #beingthankful for my inner voice.

Rumi said: There is a voice that doesn't use words. Listen.

I do listen. Always did and even more so this last year. In the past, I have taken decisions based on what my inner voice said and I can say that some of those decisions were the best ones I have ever taken. Not all of them, eh, but most of them. And those who didn't make any sense were the funny ones (!!) and that was usually when I needed to learn a lesson...
 
Don't mistake my inner voice with my ideas. Ideas are fashioned by my brain and it's usually something I know "but didn't think of". My inner voice on the other hand doesn't live in my brain but in my heart (hence the thing about not always making sense!).
It happens though that I let other voices prevail. Voices from the outside (friends, family, etc.) that become so loud that I am not able to hear my inner voice any longer.

Steve Job said: Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice.

One of my wishes for 2018 is to allow my inner voice to become clearer and louder!
