When It Comes to Following Your Heart
I have had my fair share of life changes and some have been breakdowns and some have been breakthroughs! I usually have a breakdown when I listen to my crazy mind. However, I usually have a breakthrough and a life changing one at that when I follow my heart! It gives me clarity, confidence and courage to do what I need to do for me.
I know sometimes I have to ask myself for directions when it comes to following my heart! Do I continue on, change direction, recalculate, or make a u-turn? It is very much a journey of self and the destination is not always known! I am learning to enjoy the journey. I am learning to let go of the expectations and perceptions that I set and just go for it!
Growing . . .
I strongly believe life changes are life lessons in learning more about myself and growing into a better version of myself! I am becoming a believer of what will happen will happen when it is meant to happen. I am learning that life is about a process and not about doing everything right and perfect. Bear with me, but I want to be and do things in my life that make me feel energetic and make me want to get out there to experience it!
The 2 biggest life lessons I have learned recently are . . .
- I have a voice and need to believe in myself more.
- I have a choice and need to trust in myself more.
I have a voice and a story to share! I have to believe in myself more by trusting my instincts as well as forgiving myself way more. I have to be more open to the possibilities and opportunities. I need to be more accepting of change in my life and not always fight and resist it. Who knows it could be for the better and be the best thing for me in my life too!
I always have a choice! I need to trust in myself more by listening to my inner voice and by following my heart. I have to let go of what I have no control over and it is easier said than done at times. I really have to let go of what is not working and no longer serving me too. I will never give up, but have to work smarter at it not harder!
I just want to be me and the best me! I want to love myself as well as other people for who they truly are and let them be who they are too. I do not want to compare and compete with other people, but compliment each other and add to each other’s lives. I need to let what is inside myself out and to share it!
