You have a decision to make,

an opportunity to consider.

Research gathered,

references checked,

courses of action assessed,

advice heard,

SWOT completed,

call to the universe made.

Check, check, check.

Check, check, check.

The answer is still unknown.

Time’s passing and you start to feel it.

Something shifts and all the things you checked fall away.

Suddenly you know, from somewhere inside.

That space between your heart and your gut.

In an instant, it’s clear.

An instant.

Through a check of the heart, you know.

Nothing done, barely any time passed.

And check. There it is.

Ah, that was simple.

What if next time you started there?

The heart check.
