Don’t be reasonable for other people at the expense of yourself.
When we run our lives from the neck up, we’re sorting through the situation with very limited perspective.
The power of AND.
You're stuck. And you don't know it.
Fear is just a feeling, uncomfortable, stressful, but it doesn’t contain the whole picture.
We’re lucky there are no guarantees, that’s part of what makes life fulfilling. It puts a tension between where we are and what’s possible. Drives us to dream, and push against any constraining edges.
Failing is just not that big a deal.
Sometimes, our life must fall apart completely to allow for what’s next.
If you stay only on the ground you know, you’re living only a fraction of your life.
We're going to fight big battles. .....Some will burn away layers we didn't know we had. Underneath is space we never understood we could stand in.
Hard times ask us to grow. To question things we are holding as knowns in our life, for the sake of loosening our grip on our definition of life, and expanding outside our current edges. It’s beautiful out there too.
A blending is happening. It’s important. You are not the “you” you were as you come through your storm, your colors are different.
... for insisting it’s time, and making it’s non-negotiable, that I lose the very thing I think is keeping me safe.
Change happens in every life, FOR every life.
Somewhere you are choosing.
In the “getting there,” you integrate. You can’t walk with the world like you used to, and you’re not quite at ease with your new movement, but you’re starting to get the feel.
Life will never be without challenges. Consider, it’s not supposed to, as they are what help you form.
The world needs the you that was borne because of your whole walk.
What if our random exits off the main roads of our plans are not random at all? What if our “side roads” serve us just as much, if not more?
I published a blog recently for the first time. As soon as I hit publish, I felt nauseous and wanted to re edit the content.
Don’t be so busy being “sure” you know how it’s supposed to go - that you miss the perfection of how it is going.
It is not the end.
Don't assume being in constant movement forward is the way.
Remember, even though it doesn’t feel like it matters at the time, the longer the road the deeper the gifts.
Work through that stuff going with the current, rather than pushing up against it.
You do not have to worry about getting “it” right. You do not have to worry about not living your life. Whatever road you find beneath your feet at any moment, is the right road.
Listen to your life, your way.
You can’t live your truth and be busy thinking you have other peoples.
