As I quite the chatter in my mind, I open myself up to the possibilities life has been waiting to offer me. A force that always seems to know what I need before I do. A voice that I seem to have always ignored. As my surroundings have become more difficult that voice has become louder and louder, to the point that it can no longer be ignored. I can feel it nudging me in the right direction, even if I don’t agree with it, I allow it to move me.

I find myself acting on feelings, not on thoughts or Ego. There is a little man I side me, he pushes me through the painful and humbling situations that I have forever avoided. As a reward for my efforts, a happiness has been put into my life. A happiness like I have never felt before.

I finally understand that life is not a riddle to be figured out, but a mystery to be lived. That is what I’m choosing to do today, living a mystery filled with endless possibilities. All I had to do was to listen to the little man inside. What is your little man/woman telling you?
