Within the last few months, I have been through more changes than I had ever anticipated. I don’t do well with the unexpected, but I’ve made it through and I’m trying to make sure that I firmly plant my feet on the ground as I move through this new year.
I’ve faced certain fears head on… and what life repeatedly keeps telling me is that things are never as daunting as we initially make them out to be in our minds. We constantly fear this great “unknown” when it comes to love, our ambitions, work, progressing with our dreams… Basically, every aspect of life that you can think of, we can figure out a way to convince ourselves that we don’t deserve what we actually want and dream of… I’ve grown tired of that type of mentality though. It doesn’t get us anywhere.
I know what I want.
I’ve got such a detailed picture of what I want to accomplish at this point in my life and just within the last few months, I have been able to obtain the things that I have set my mind to work toward. Some things take longer than others and will require more patience, but when you feel something is worth the wait… you just do it. The pay off will be much greater and sweeter in the end because the things that take some time, you will cherish more so as well.
As long as I know that I am working toward something, I can continue pressing forward. I just refuse to be stagnant. I refuse to feel stuck. I refuse to settle for less.
January – I moved to a new apartment that actually feels more like a home than any other place I have lived in.
February – I interviewed for a new job, I was offered the position, and I passed all clearances for my new role to start in March.
I will be doing my best to make sure the rest of my year is a fruitful as the beginning and I will be sending out all the positive energy I can back out so that those I encounter in any arena also find themselves motivated to shoot for the stars…
Because even if we fall the first few times we try, we can continue to use everything we experience to get back up and try another way. There will always be another way as long as we are willing to keep trying.
Join me on this journey,
