“Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear the most” – FYoder Dostoyevski
Seven years ago today, I took a leap of faith. How bizarre to think back on it.
In a way it feels like a lifetime ago, but in another way it feels like yesterday. I can’t even begin to remember what it felt like at that time!! What my moods, exhaustion, personality was? I reflect on it like an outsider, looking in. Wow, what a personal journey it has been! I couldn’t even begin to have imagined what would’ve come from the new experiences, resulting in an intense deep richness within my relationships.
Sure there have been moments of doubt, disappointment, sadness. But the flip side has held adventure, laughter connection, inspiration, creativity, mind expansion. No amount of status or money experienced in isolation, can give this. I like myself so much more today than whom I was 7 years ago.
This is the path, the right road and it feels good. Whilst I’m still not 100% clear on what the next steps are, being in creation has definitely rekindled my power and love for life. What I am clear on, is that the only move that matters is the next one and that I am moving and making progress ;). I heard something once which really hit a chord. “Do not confuse movement with progress. You can run on the spot all day, and not get anywhere.”
I am so grateful to the universe for this space. For holding this space to allow me the freedom to live into something. What I knew then and even now, is that tough times shall pass and the sun will always come out from behind the clouds.
Are you ready to step forward?
What would it take to live into the future of your choosing?
What is getting in your way?
If you ask people, 90% would say survival, putting food on the table. However how much of that is them standing in their own way?
The psychology of that is the challenge… Worth some thought, don’t you think?
