I knew 2015 would change my life.
I knew it would because I decided that this year would be my year of clarity and change. When you set an intention out to the world, and decide I will rather than “I’ll try,” you set things in motion.
“I’ll try” is done from a seated position, whereas “I will” is the getting up.
This is one major aspect that not everyone really thinks about. We plan, we research, we change our minds, we wait for the “right time,” and we end up doing all of that from the seated position when what we really need to do is get up. Start following whatever is in front of us on our right path. Make decisions along the way. Follow the bread crumb trail and make the pit stops when you hit those important landmarks.
Sometimes the path can mean veering from the one you’ve been on for a while, and taking a risk because your gut tells you 1) The path you’re on is leading nowhere, 2) The uncertain path WILL lead you to better things, or 3) Both…
It’s usually the last one.
Now I believe in simply moving forward in any capacity. Take one small trip to a new event. Have a medium-sized conversation with someone you normally don’t engage with on Facebook. Skip the chocolate tonight. Take the stairs. Apply for some dream jobs whilst working at your current one.
Do a small “let’s just check and see what the rent costs are” in the area you’ve thought about moving to…
Or a huge one-way ticket to a new home.
I’m just following the bread crumb trail because I know in the end no matter where I end up I will stay consistently satiated.
Because I keep picking things up along the way that feed me, and letting go of the things that do not.
