Sometimes it’s OK to not know.
Yesterday I was talking about being “specific” about what we want in our lives.
The truth is sometimes we don’t know what we want.
We hear all this stuff about vision and goals and mapping out how we’re going to get to our “dream destination” etc etc- but I realised yesterday that when I started on my journey to doing what I wanted in my life- I had NO idea what it was I wanted to do- I mean zero, none, nada- zilch-
Those of you who’ve been with me on this blog for a while may remember a time I was so depressed that getting through each day was a huge struggle for me…
That was about two years ago…
At that stage I had NO idea what I wanted- The only thing I thought I wanted was to die- and I really mean that.
I’d get anxiety attacks when I woke up in the morning because the idea of a new day terrified me-
I didn’t know how to cope with my life. Having to wake up each day was a burdensome chore that was more painful than I know how to fully express here.
Today, two years later, I love love LOVE my life!
I love mornings- I love afternoons- I love evenings- each day matters to me- I enjoy living.
My life means so much to me because it has meaning now.
My point in all this is to say there was a time when I didn’t know what I wanted.
One of the things I did though was I got rid of things I didn’t want.
Those things (or, unfortunately, people) that are weighing you down are usually obvious and don’t require too much time to identify. They’re easily identifiable because one of their traits is they are ginormous energy suckers! Urgh! I got tired just writing that line!
The most important part about getting to a place where we find joy is to be truthful. And to do things that may not be at all comfortable.
As we realise truth by truth and choose to take action- step by step- one moment at a time- one day at a time- things become clearer… and clearer… and clearer.
Before you know it you’re living a wonderful life you may or may not have even dreamed of- but you will be happy. In the end that’s all that matters.
Do what you can.
Take tiny steps- those tiny steps become strides- and soon you find yourself running- the wind in your hair- the sun beaming in your heart and the wonderful song of meaning beating in every cell in your body.
You don’t have to start out knowing every detail about what you need to do to be happy- just listen to your heart and begin following it.
