I think we have been led to believe that in life we have to follow one trajectory, one path and if that person we try to be doesn’t work out then we have failed; but in truth life has so many diverging paths. It is when we are able to embrace the fact that we will change, that we will evolve and with each evolution we will draw closer to our true selves.
Each new day we a get a chance to do something different, a fresh start. We get to try out something new. Why not then, look at life as a series of beginnings, instead of one road with only one possible destination?
It’s in the times that I’ve fallen down that I have found the need to assess and re-adjust, and it’s in those moments that I see that there is so much out there for me to explore. A metamorphosis of sorts. In those moments I’m also reminded that I can begin… again… as many times as I need to.
It’s funny how it takes something bad to happen for us to take the time to stop, reflect and reset. Seriously, try it – Reinvent yourself as many times as you need to. It doesn’t matter what people say, (they’ll always have something to say).
The world tries to box, tries to put us into categories with labels that make sense to them and it’s not for me or you to necessarily try and convince the world otherwise, it’s only for us to silence the noise, to silence that which doesn’t align with who we are. It reminds us to BE! before we do.
I’ve learnt that the more times you look into yourself and stop, look, correct and readjust; the more times you will find that you are closer to your true passions and in closer alignment with your true self.
So I challenge you why not today look at one thing that you’d like to change and take a small step, a smidge in the direction of that change.
