If I’ve learned anything over the past few months it’s that you don’t always need a plan. Plans and life can go awry for reasons out of your control.
My life was completely different a year ago. I was on a path to marry someone, I had what I thought was a close circle of friends and I had a terrific in-house position. I never imagined I would be where I am today or that any of the changes that happened would have occurred. But things happen, people change, business needs change – nothing is certain. Just look at the world in which we live right now. I had to go with the flow. I had to stop knocking on doors that weren’t meant for me. I had to grow. I had to be able to be myself.
Most of all I had to harness the power of my intuition and hit the reset button on my life. I had to suddenly give up the future I thought I wanted for the unknown.
In reality I had outgrown that job and my relationship, but I didn’t want to admit it.
Instead of taking action and control, I let things happen to me. I was afraid of change, and I could have avoided much of my stress and pain if I had just listened to my inner voice.
I stayed at that job too long and in that relationship too long. I wanted a new professional challenge, and I wanted things out of my relationship that my partner couldn’t give me. I sadly had to say goodbye to friends who didn’t have my back as well. When you go through a rough time you quickly find out who is there for you and who is not.
Sometimes we get so set on a life we created in our heads instead of realizing the reality isn’t what we want or need.
Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go and see what happens, especially now when so much is uncertain. Trust the process. Do your best every day. Don’t overthink. Enjoy the present. Reach out for help when you need it. Control what you can control. Assume good intent. Be kind. Know that what’s meant for you will find you. Believe in yourself and know you will be okay no matter what 🙌🏻
