The idea of doing anything impulsively has so many negative connotations, but the truth is that there are quite a few benefits associated with being an impulsive woman. Sometimes you have to take a risk to reap the rewards you really want. You can't act like a shrinking violet, scared of making waves or stepping outside of the box. Speaking as someone who's only just learning how not to be risk averse, I hope you'll trust me when I tell you that acting more impulsively can make your life pretty damn incredible.
1. It Means You Trust Your Instincts
Being impulsive often involves taking some kind of risk, even if it's relatively small. Still, to take risks you generally have to trust your instincts, which hopefully means they're razor sharp. They might not be, of course – just because you follow your instincts doesn't mean they're automatically, or always, right – but still. You can hone them, and besides that, sometimes you just have to do what feels right and take a plunge.
