Too many times we muddy the waters of our own intuition by soliciting the opinions of others (and sometimes many others) before we make a choice. But asking yourself by yourself forces you to feel the weight of the decision and how your heart receives each option.
My sister gives me similar advice - to "try on" a decision as if it were a done deal and see how it feels. Sometimes the mere fact of doing that will give me a sense of relief, or alternately a sense of dread. Those feelings are exquisite little guideposts for which way to go (or not to go).
Nepo encourages us to uncover the language of our hearts in addition to our common language with others. Not to help others understand us, but to help us be ourselves - "to help you be you, to be the small sun you are." The heart will then communicate with our gifts, conducting them as they were an orchestra, and guide us on our way. I like the thought of that.
Wherever you path takes you today, be the small sun you are. Shine on, little sun, shine on.
