A gentle bend in my road beckons ✨
Time to veer away for a bit and go check it out!
-Sometimes, it’s just time to head somewhere else-
When your heart lets you know, you’ll know. And mine has been tugging at my sleeve lately for my full attention.
Heart: “Pssst, hey you!”
Me: “Yes, in a minute—I’m driving!”
Heart: “I know, but it’s time to slow down.”
Me: “I don’t have time for that!”
Heart: “Ummm, you don’t have time not to!”
Me: “I have to keep going or I won’t get There!”
Heart+Soul: “Are you sure you know where There is? We don’t think so … stop!”
Me: “Fine, fine!” (braking) Y’all happy now?” (secretly relieved and in agreement)
Where I Want To Be is currently being examined.
The start of a new year is a good time to reflect and reassess. Maybe my direction will change. Maybe not.
But now that Introspection accepted my invitation recently, I’m already sensing that my route will be slightly recalculating.
And stepping back from here is also part of the deal.
The way I’m wired, I have to dial down both other voices and my own so I can hear myself think. Otherwise, it’s an overwhelming and distracting cacophony.
Each one of us has an individual journey to complete.
Only we should set the course, or else we give away our power. It may seem logical to do what everyone else is doing or go where everyone else is going. To keep doing what we’ve been doing for a while.
But does your heart agree? Is it expanding your soul? Did you ask?
Pause and pivot as needed, on your way to being your best self!💫
It’s been a month since I last posted.
It was not a planned outage. Yet in retrospect, I don’t believe it randomly happened.
It started with a pause on social media. IG has been thwarting me (and everyone else!) with hiding friend posts, suggesting other posts, and urging me to reel for money!
Ironically, I last wrote here about my friend, Jo, who took an indefinite SM break because she didn’t care for how it monopolized her life. And how it created stress to show up even more entertaining and clever than the last time. Which got me thinking how much I vibed with this…
Yet I’m also realizing that I’m ready to write a new chapter. While I have a very lovely life, I’m yearning to shake things up a bit with something new. Which means doing the same stuff isn’t bringing me as much joy any more.
I’m in a rut so I’m due for something different. I don’t exactly know what but I’m taking time to figure that out.
I’ll be circling back now and then. But for now, you know as much as I do about where I’m headed.
Are you also yearning for a new chapter?
Allow yourself to let go in order to discover a new adventure. Live a life you love!
Until we meet again— thanks for stopping by!
