#WeVerb12: Respond

Do you actively listen to your inner voice/conscience? Describe a time this year you heard and responded to it.

This is going to sound kind of nerdy, but I always have some sort of inner dialogue going with myself. I’m always asking myself questions and reasoning answers and solutions out myself. Now, to be honest, most of the time, it’s really just me figuring out if I’m actually going to wear those really cute shoes and if they’re worth buying. But one time that my inner voice really mattered was when I applied for an open position in my office.

There were a few good reasons why I was a good fit, and one big, glaring reason that it wouldn’t work. But, after waffling back and forth and agonizing about it, I told myself, “There is nothing to lose from trying. And I will forever regret this if I don’t give myself the chance.” Once I told myself that, I applied for it. And I did get it, but I think the point really was that I tried.
