Waiting for the destination? It’s in each step. Waiting for the next new thing? But then there will be a next new thing after that one. Waiting for the right time to start? It’s probably right now.
If you’re tired of waiting for something or someone else, and you’re ready for something new, right now is your time. How you live your life from this moment forward is up to you.
I have a few words of encouragement to keep you moving.
You’re not meant to stay stuck in one season forever, after all.
When You’re Ready for Something New, Remember This...
1. Wonder what could grow from here.
Something to ponder every time you’re standing in a dark place and can’t see the light yet. For every time you’re unsure of the outcome. Every single time you’re faced with an unpleasant situation. Wonder what could grow, from this place.
2. Let hope be your choice.
Hope will give you the power to make another decision, to start something new, to live into the life you envision for yourself.
Trust opens the door.
3. Chaos is part of creation.
A quilt looks like a jumbled mess of colors, prints, and memories mid-creation. Progress can be a lot like that too. It’s hard to see past the immediate chaos, but keep this truth alive in you: there’s a larger masterpiece in the works.
One stitch at a time…
4. An open heart will take you far.
With an open heart, you’ll be more open to exploring what a closed heart fears. You'll see what other people miss. You'll see flowers pushing through the sidewalk. Inspiration will find you, solutions will come out of hiding. The energy that pours through you so easily makes you fluid and frees even the people around you.
5. Allow room for wonder.
Stay with the mystery. Leave room for wonder. Space for curiosity. Surrender for repair. Air for nourishment. Time for play. Silence for awe… These are necessities for serendipity.
There’s a lot to be found in the moments where life is a question mark—those moments make up most of life.
6. What’s the best that could happen?
I love asking myself this question because I actually have to stop and really think about all the possibilities—and not just the terrible ones that anxiety would have me believe in.
. . .
