Do You Hear The Voice?

Aren’t these lovely horses? Such majestic creatures. Except that last night, I was swearing at them!
It was late at night, I was tired, it was dark, it was raining and five of them got out and I could not get them back in the paddock!!

Truth be told, it was all my fault.

We had a colossal weekend splitting 25 cubic metres of wood (about 15 tonnes) and I was delivering some to the farm. The horse’s owner always leaves the gate open, visits them and then leaves closing the gate behind her.
I thought I’d do the same. I will never do that again!

This voice said, “Shut the gate. It will be better. You don’t know where the horses are and you would hate to have to chase them.”

Did I listen? Nooooooo. I overruled my common sense, sub conscious, gut reaction, guiding thoughts (what ever you may call it) with my wilful self. I was so tired and I knew I couldn’t be trusted but I did it anyway.

(The story has a happy ending. The owner finally checked her phone that was on silent, and after me trying for 90 minutes, within 5 minutes she had the horses all back in the paddock!)

Do you ever ignore that voice? Maybe it’s an email you want to send, a comment you think about saying, a phone call you could have made or some kind of action that the voice is telling you to do or not do and you over rode the voice to your detriment.

The secret is, trust yourself. You really do know what you are doing it’s just that sometimes you have to get out of your own way. Listen to the voice or you may be wasting a lot of time fixing a situation you have caused.
