Follow Your Gut

Apparently, every time I watch a movie, I have inspiration to write. My last post was in reference to Runaway Bride– Ask Yourself ‘Why?’

Ironically, this one is also a Julia Roberts movie– Eat. Pray. Love.

I’ve seen it before, but I don’t remember being this moved by it. Maybe it’s the wine. (Likely, the wine).

There are so many quotes in this movie that are worth sharing, but they all deserve their own post to be honest.

If you haven’t seen the movie, this is by no means a spoiler. But know that the quote you’re about to read is literally the last couple lines of the entire movie. So stop now or forever hold your peace.

“If you’re willing to give up everything you know and go on an adventure… And then treat every person you meet as a clue to your future… Then the truth will be yours.”

How inspiring is that?!

Ask any of my friends (the whole two of them), and they’ll tell you I’m the one they call when they have a crazy idea.

I’m big on following your gut no matter how crazy it is.

Always follow your gut.

And with this quote from Eat. Pray. Love., it’s just that much more apparent to me that we have to follow our guts and take a leap of faith when it comes to jobs, relationships, commitments, moving, you name it. Everything we do is a leap of faith. So why try and stay in our comfort zone? We never grow or change in our comfort zones.

If we’re willing to take that leap and accept that we’re constantly on this road to where we’re going, no matter where it is, we’ll always get there. It’s going to be bumpy sometimes. It’s going to be sad and disappointing.

But sometimes, it’s going to be so fulfilling and moving, that you’ll cry once you realize you’ve arrived.

It’ll be so profound– something you’ve been searching your whole life for. And you’ll know the exact moment you get there.

And you’ll be changed forever.

We may experience this more than once in our lives. And some may only experience it that one time. But you’ll remember it forever.

We’ll remember the people we met along the way. And everything we went through to get there.

And nothing else will matter, because for a moment we are exactly where we’re supposed to be.

So always follow your gut no matter how crazy it seems.

 

Cheers,
