Intuition (noun): the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning; a thing that one knows or considers likely from instinctive feeling rather than conscious reasoning.

Follow your intuition.

We tend to make things more difficult than they need to be. We tell ourselves that the simple answer to a hard question isn’t right because a hard question should have a difficult, confusing answer, right? I don’t feel that’s always the case. We’re so conditioned to use logical reasoning to answer all our questions. We think and think and overthink about the “right” answer until we go crazy. But maybe sometimes the answer is undefined. Maybe it can only be explained by looking inward.

I believe that the key is looking into your inner self. Your inner self is where your soul, your energy, your deepest intuitions lie. When you truly feel intuitive about something, I think you should almost always follow that path. Our intuitions may not always lead us where we had intended, but I think intuition is the universe/god/whatever you believe telling us where we need to go. It’s more powerful than you, it’s bigger than logical reasoning. I think we often have difficulty trusting ourselves. We become so dependent on someone else choosing an answer for us, but the only one who has the power to decide which way you will go is you.

Sometimes it can be really scary, but I believe as long as you follow your intuition, you’ll always be exactly where you’re meant to be, even if you don’t know it yet.
