Just over a year ago I had an abundance of changes and challenges happen. Consisting of both large and small hurdles and new beginnings, they all have placed me on a completely different path in life. To be brief, I got divorced, changed my name, moved, started a new relationship (my soulmate), had a baby, lost and made some friends along the way, but on top of all that, I have a whole new perspective on life and recalibrated focus to what matters, who matters, and where I want to go with it. It is short, and while many people disagree will disagree with choices I’ve made, I chose to take a new path; not because the grass looked greener, but rather I felt this absolute magnetism pulling me in a new direction. Instead of fighting it, and staying unhappy and indifferent, I chose to embrace this “pull” and tackle the challenges that came with it and not fight the inevitable, this strong, and ever present pull that was happening in to my soul and overwhelming voice echoing in my head telling me “everything happens for a reason”. I trusted myself and made some hard choices. May sound easy or rather cliche written in words, but it is true. Put in the face of judgment and criticism, those fears and factors were pushed aside and a new path blazed ahead. And on this new, beautiful and epic journey began. While some of us are apprehensive to change, do not let it get in the way of life. Life will always lead you where you are supposed to be if you let it. That’s the trick, to let it you have to change and make some hard, or easy, decisions depending on how you look at them; sometimes many things within the course of a year. If we never take a step, how do we learn to walk, and then how will we ever learn to run? I can say from my own perspective that I have never been more jubilant and at peace and embracing of my life and where the universe may take me. And it all started with one step. Those nagging fears of judgment, criticism, negativity, losing possessions/relationships, money, etc can be wiped away with one easy decision too; pay that bullshit no mind. To this day those things don’t impact me the same way, they no longer penetrate my thoughts, opinions or feelings. I have grown stronger in my own identity. To wrap this, hopefully not redundant post, up for now, embrace your challenges, don’t fight the inevitable. And by inevitable, I mean life, when it tells you it’s time to make a change, don’t fear the difficulties, changes or anything, move forward and learn about yourself. I often think of our individual journies like a maze, the start would be birth, finish line would be death. Sometimes we make one choice and it leads us astray, but when we go back and begin again on a new way, it leads to a new fork in the road. Eventually coming to and end; but the point is: did we actually LIVE along the way? I’m living, not just existing, and again, it all starts with a step.
