Decisions are simply a part of life. There are small daily ones with small consequences. And, there are the life-altering, enormous kind that can cause us a great amount of stress, anxiety and indecision. Since making decisions is inevitable, we need to know how to approach this process—especially if we find ourselves becoming STUCK in our own indecision. In this episode, Giovanna walks us through the process of decision-making. She discusses how we can make a decision from a place of clarity and peace instead of one that is influenced by our own ego and rational thinking. She discusses the NEED to tap into our Source, Guide, or Higher Self to seek true direction and encourages listeners in how they can make time in their busy lives to do so.
