All of your struggles are simply growing pains, shaping you and making you stronger and better equipped for what lies ahead.
There is a saying that “Rome was not built in a day” which is absolutely true! It took over a millennia from Rome to expand from a city on the Tiber to an empire reaching from the farthest corners of Europe across the Fertile Crescent and Northern Africa. Most likely, your goal is probably not inter-continental domination, so luckily whatever it is you are trying to accomplish won’t take that long, so keep at it. If it is important to you, then it is absolutely worth the wait.
In addition, today’s goat is a friend of a friend of mine. Her name is Cindy and judging from her easy grin, she quite likes October so far.
Autumn is such a hopeful time. Keep your chin up and your shoulders back – you’ve made it this far, and that’s amazing!
I hope that whenever you are you get to enjoy some amazing sunny autumn afternoons.
When it feels like a door to one possibility is shut, don’t despair. Other, potentially even more amazing possibilities are all around, you just have to look.
Perhaps consider this weekend assuming that everything is going to go right. Assume the best of yourself, of those around you, of strangers, and the universe at large.
Go forth and make the most of the last weeks of summer – before you know it the days will be shorter and colder. Enjoy some sunshine this weekend.
Find a partner who nourishes your soul and you will never go wrong.
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.
