I’ve been thinking a lot about how to move forward after getting unstuck. I was feeling stuck in a lot of areas of my life and last year really helped me to get clear on what was important to me, what my values were, and what I wanted out of life right now. I didn’t want to fit myself into a box of what people expected of me. I’ve spent what feels like my whole life in that box and guys, I’m not staying inside of the box anymore. There are pieces of me that don’t fit into that box. That box can be a dark place to be when I’m crouched inside of it. I’m letting the light start to stream in and warm my face.
Now that I’ve calmed my ego down a bit and told it to just be quiet (ok, most of the time!), I’m ready to move towards the things I want. I want quiet, unrushed time to myself. I want to cultivate close relationships with my husband and my girls and my other family members. I want to make time for friends. I want to work on things that I’m passionate about. I don’t want to waste this life with Facebook and material things and the general sense of busyness that Becca talked about a couple of weeks ago.
That means making space for this new life as I work towards it. I can see it, guys. I know what it will feel like. And little by little, I’m working towards it. It means sticking my neck out when it doesn’t always feel good. Sometimes, it is more comfortable to just let things stay the same. But I don’t want that. I want something more which means that I need to keep making space for this life. Keep imagining it and keep making those little steps towards it. I’ve come so far compared to my incredibly confused self last year. I’m not going back.
If you are working towards something, keep making the space for it. It will come.
