What is it about being human that makes us love ballet, or sports, or concerts? We love watching people live their life in their highest form, as their true selves. If you had no obligations to anyone, what would you be doing with your life?
Are you happy? If not, now is your chance to pivot. Now is the time to make a change.
I spent most of my 20's upset that I was unable to live up to my full potential. I knew that I was creative and I had something to offer the world. After high school, I made a decision to be a mother. I was 19 and had no idea how it would impact my life. I had a hard time. A really hard time, but I learned that you can't give up on the things that bring you joy. You must always return to them to lead a happy and fulfilled life. It feels like I lived a lifetime in my 20's. I was tested constantly, and life wore me down. With these lessons, I learned resilience. At least when you hit rock bottom, you know there is only one way out, which is up.
I am returning to my patterns after 7 years. For me, it felt like forever. I felt like I was never going to get here and that I was destined to have office work and be tied to a schedule. With the excitement comes fears of inadequacy, fears of failure, fears of success, and fears of ideas theft. Today, I am affirming that those all can co-exist, but I will still move forward and release my patterns and share them with the world, as it is what I want to do with my life right now.
This week is for reflection. As this year has made us all need to adjust, what is it that you can spend more time doing? What is it that you miss?
