A little Wednesday wake up call I wrote for myself. Take it as your own if it feels right ❤
Hey you. It’s okay to sit still for awhile. It’s okay to stay where there is comfort and with what seems stable and secure. It’s okay to rest and recoup. To recharge and regain some energy and strength. It’s okay to wait and ponder. To not know and not move until things become more clear. It’s okay to do nothing if nothing seems to be working.
There will come a time though, that in order to grow, to expand, to create, to learn, to love yourself and others better, to listen to your wise and beautiful heart, that you will need to risk. And risk BIGTIME. You will need to jump off that cliff, arms and legs flailing, not knowing when you will reach the ground. You will need to step on that new path, in total darkness, and it may be rockier than you expect and may have tons of twists and turns. You will need to break down the walls of that nice comfy space you have built around your heart and your life, that feel like your safety and your protection, and venture into unfamiliar openness and the most vulnerable depths of yourself.
Risking will probably at the least feel uncomfortable. It may freak you out and push you up against every limit you think you have. It may scare you so shitless that you want to curl up and close your eyes and pretend that the call to move isn’t happening. But if you can accept all that fear, set it aside for a moment or two, take a deep breath and ground yourself in stillness and quiet, when you think about that next step, that leap, that movement into the new, it will also feel like freedom and peace and truth, and have a warmth to it, like you are coming HOME.
You can do it. Every ounce of courage needed is already within you. You were built for leaps of brave boldness. You were meant to have a life that is full of rich, beautiful, moving, jump up and down with joy experiences. You were meant for wide open, fall back and be caught love, and big, big dreams come true.
