You feel unfulfilled not because of what you are doing but because of what you aren’t doing. You aren’t pursuing that dream. You aren’t quitting that job you hate. You aren’t going after that thing that keeps you up at night.
We tell ourselves that at the end of our journey, everything will make sense, except in reality you get there and wonder what the hell you’re supposed to do next, because there’s not an instruction manual for what comes after “The End.” Sometimes you just get lost all over again.
Maybe we all need to feel lost at times in order to face the fear head on, so that we can come out at the other end with a growing confidence and a little more resilience.
You are allowed to sleep with the wrong person. You are allowed to date someone for years and break up. You are allowed to get stuck in bad relationships for a few months before coming to your senses and leaving.
Forgive yourself – You are only human after all.
My hands are scarred from holding thorns of my past close to my chest.
Constantly having a heightened awareness can be uncomfortable, and a lot of times it’s exhausting, but it opens up a new path of perception.
Sometimes it’s easier to pretend not to care or put up a wall to block everything out. But deep down, you care too much and feel too deeply.
You’re not sure what the bigger picture is.
Contained within each uncertainty lies the opportunity to step into your own power and know your true worth.
