Minister’s Musings – Saying Yes to Yourself

Saying Yes to Yourself

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re on your own. And you know what to do. And you know what you know. And you are the one who’ll decide where to go.”                                                                                                                              – Dr. Seuss, ‘Oh, the Places You’ll Go’

We doubt ourselves all the time. I know there are times when I turn to colleagues and friends to check my reality, only to be affirmed in what I have observed or already know. It is difficult to trust the voice of reason in our heads or the gut feeling we have. However, those are created by the vast knowledge we have built in our life. Not to mention, all the experiences and relationships we have been a part. 

It is a spiritual practice or intentional practice to trust in ourselves to know what we know. It is also deeply empowering to say ‘Yes, I know what I want to do!’ In fact, you are the only one with your unique experiences, relationships, and knowledge, which makes you the only one qualified to make decisions on your behalf. 

Some traditions would say by trusting in yourself you are honoring your own divine wisdom and also honoring the divine wisdom found in all of us and in all things.  

Peace & Grace,
Rev. Laura
