The other day, I wanted to get my nails done, but I wasn’t close to my usual place by work (I knooooow. Big life problems I’m reporting here). So, I had a decision to make.
- Option 1: Do I go to the nail place about ten minutes from my house? I’ve been there once and they did an okay job but the nail technician wasn’t very friendly.
- Option 2: Do I try the new place just two minutes down the road?
I wasn’t sure what to do, so I asked my inner-me (i.e., my intuition, my gut, my higher self, whatever you want to call it/they/him/her) what to do and she said, Option 1.
Wait, are you sure? responds my stubborn ego. You weren’t overly happy before and the new place is closer?
I caught myself not honoring my intuition and shut down the doubt. Danielle, go with Option 1.
And so I did.
When I got to the nail salon, they told me it would be a ten-minute wait. Nice work, intuition!
That 10-minute wait turned to 30, then ended up about 50 minutes. While waiting for my mani/pedi, I oscillated between: Danielle enjoy the you time… Everything happens for a reason… and, Maybe you got that voice in your head wrong… I worked hard to keep my vibes high and to trust the process.
Although I wasn’t overly pleased with the wait, my French manicure and white toes came out amazing! The nail technician was sweet, tucking hints of humor into our conversation every now and then. She was meticulous with her work. It was a fantastic overall experience and well worth my time and money.
As I left the nail salon, my intuition rang back in, Go to the clothing boutique next store. They have the summer shirts you’ve been looking for.
My ego jumped to doubt again (Isn’t it funny…or frustrating… how our minds work?), Remember, you don’t like it there. The last time you were there everything was disorganized and expensive.
I again caught myself and shut down the hesitation. Danielle, you’re going in the store.
Within ten minutes I had six items in my hand. Talk about easy! I tried them on and all but two fit perfectly. The best part? Everything I had was on sale and I spent less than $60. A special treat!
The simple takeaway is, trust your intuition and don’t panic if you perceive that something isn’t working out. Our higher self always knows what’s in our best interest even though there may be a few detours along the way (like a long wait at a nail salon).
I’d love to hear from you. Do you have a similar story? One where your intuitive decision surprised you and turned out beneficial, even though you worried it may not? Send me a note.

PS – Here’s an affirmation to use when you’re feeling uneasy about a situation, “What is meant for me will find me. What is not meant for me will not find me.”
PPS – Find a pen and journal. Think about something happening in your life that you perceive as ‘not good’ (ex: your brother is mad at you or you lost your job). Get creative and write a story about all the ways this situation could work in your favor (ex: you and your brother have the best make-up conversation and decide to celebrate the new and improved sibling relationship by going to Hawaii for 3 weeks, or you end up finding a new part-time job doing exactly what you love making 200k a year). Get dreamy and really allow yourself to feel the good vibes. A couple sentences to a full page will do. Then, write on your paper, ‘I’m using these high vibes to give this situation love’ and trust that although you may not see it, things are working in your favor.
