Midlife Transition: Getting clear with the smile test

So once you figure out how to let Divine Intelligence guide you and stop saying I don’t know – or letting other’s ideas drive what you want –

What are some ways you can figure out what it is that you really want?

Smile test – get a counselor, a practitioner, Minister or friend to listen and ask good questions.
Every time you have an experience that brings you pleasure, big or small, take note of it.  You are probably far more proficient at those that you enjoy.  How can you STOP doing the things you don’t like – It’s a sign of maturity when you can stop trying to get better at your weaknesses and HIRE THEM.
WHAT DOES YOUR HEART WANT?  Can you pass the smile test.

What do you guts say when you think about it?  When you feel like you want to do something, don’t let your logical mind set in and take over. Just do it. This may be the direction you should follow. You’ve heard people say, “Follow your heart.” And even more importantly, “Follow what feels right.”  The still small voice that we read about in Scripture can be heard by listening to what feels good.
Relax and listen. Let go on a regular basis, so you can listen to your inner being. It doesn’t have to be a long amount of time, but do something that makes you feel good whether it is meditating, cleaning, gardening, walking. You will know what is right for you.

Get good at asking questions about, and understanding, what makes people feel good. The quality of our lives is based on the quality of our questions.   Keep asking How does doing this make me feel?
Keep asking the question –  What do you really want? What do you really want? What do you really want?

If you still feel stuck – ask yourself – If you did Know – always gets an answer
Sometimes it helps to ask – What Don’t you want

Stanislaw Leszczynski (1677-1766)  To believe with certainty we must begin with doubting

–    What don’t you want?
The opposite is what you do want? I love the quote from Wayne Dyer – don’t die with your music still in you.
Too many lives are being lived in quiet desperation waiting until – until they had saved a nest egg, until the children are out of school, until I retire, but “until” ever arrives.

Don’t go to sleep tonight without making a decision on WHAT YOU REALLY WANT IN LIFE MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE.
