I am a classic over-thinker. I analyze, dissect, and run though every possible outcome before making a decision. My husband, who knows this about me, will always remind me of this faithful phrase, "Everything will work out in the end". While I typically respond with my usual doubt, I know what he says is true. Things always have a way of working themselves out in the end.
The thing is, in my heart and my soul, I always know what I should do, what I want to do. But my mind rattles off everything from other options to worst case scenario. As a result, I end up scared, paranoid, and mentally exhausted. To combat this, I am doing my best to follow my instincts when it comes to my decisions. My heart and my soul know what is best for me, I just need to start listening.
