New beginnings come with change and change can be difficult. Sometimes the hardest thing we can ever do is to walk away from something we want, but that we know deep down is not meant for us. I've never been good with change, change can be scary and sometimes staying in something that is not good for us seems more comfortable and less scary than change.
Change and letting go is a part of life, each of us has had to let go of something we wanted or loved very much, but I'm sure that when we reflect back on those decisions to change or let go, we see how it took us down the path we were meant to travel and opened up opportunities that we would not have had.
The last year has been full of change for me...a spinal injury, losing my job, but most of all, for the first time in my life, I was forced to be still and be one with my thoughts. This is something I've never done before, I was living life at warp speed and never took time to just think, to be one with my thoughts and ponder what it is that I really wanted...seems like such a simple thing, but truly it is a gift that we rarely give ourselves.
I had time to ponder what my true passions are and what I wanted out of life...it sounds cliche, but what would I do with my life if I knew I couldn't fail? Just think about that for a moment...the skies the limit, right? What if you just did it anyway, knowing that you might fail? The true reward comes from following your dreams and doing something, even when you know you might fail.
Begin to imagine how perfect your dream is going to be by just stepping out of the scary, the doubt and taking a true leap of faith. Having the courage to let go of the ordinary so that you can have the extraordinary. Faith in knowing that everything always works out beautifully when you make courageous choices that are right for you. What if we broke the ties that bind us?...What if we took a true leap of faith?...What if our dreams really did come true? Our heart knows what it is...we just have to do it!
