Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on ignore.
I am not one to ignore my feelings.
I'm not one that can easily forget, or forgive, to be honest.
I don't normally try to ignore my instincts. I know that I can feel the temperature in a room before people even talk...I typically lean into that.
But lately, I've been trying to ignore what is in front of me.
I keep hearing you coach, telling me that I have to be more positive.
Telling me that I have to give everyone the benefit of the doubt.
And although I adore your joy, I adore your insight and look on the world, I think it's time I get back to my instincts.
I think I need to find my way back to trusting me again and not ignoring who I am.
I promise that does not mean I will be the hard shell I was before we met.
I promise I will still find my joy in life and the world.
But I do need to remember that my instincts are rarely off and I need to listen to me again.
After a long stretch of ignoring myself, I am climbing my way back.
