Traveling is good for the soul – whether it is across the planet, your home country, your town or across the street.
Comfort zones are good places to recharge and rest, but eventually it is good to break through. Although it is tempting to stay, we grow and experience more when we allow ourselves to be uncomfortable and challenged.
Whew, sometimes the weeks feel like they go by so fast! Take some time this weekend to pause and take an inventory of all the amazing things in your life. It is hard but sometimes remembering a special detail here and there can highlight the best bits of life that can easily slip under the radar and be taken for granted.
Keep reaching – you’re closer than you think!
I have said it before when I am running late, and I will likely say it again in the future. Sometimes, if you save something until the very last minute, it only takes a minute to do.
You make the best plans and set forth, only to find after many of life’s diversions and detours that you feel lost and off course. It happens to everyone, even with the most carefully laid out plans and the hardest work. Consider that maybe you aren’t actually lost, and heading somewhere else, somewhere even better, somewhere you were truly meant to be. Thank you to my friend Chloe Ashley for spotting this lovely goat near Cromer, UK.
When things don’t quite seem to be working out the way you planned, just focus on the present moment. There is nothing you can do to change the past, and the future has yet to be written, so just allow yourself to enjoy all the beautiful things of the now.
Sometimes you just have to find your opening and sometimes you have to nudge it open yourself. There is always a way forward, even if sometimes it feels like it’s going to be a tight squeeze.
It is never too late to start something new or make a big change. Rest today and prepare for new opportunities and developments for the week ahead.
When you start out and offer yourself to the universe, keep your mind open to all feedback, and try (although it’s hard) to receive all feedback with gratitude. Even the negative feedback, even the critical feedback. Sometimes we hold onto what we want so much and it’s hard to let go, but once you let go you can make space for newer and better possibilities.
