We must let go of the life that we have planned… to accept the one that is waiting for us.
How many times do we try to force an outcome in our life because we were taught this is how life should look? We should go to college and get a degree, get the killer job, get married by a certain age and then follow that up with kids and a house. We should be working more hours than we sleep or have time to be with those who we truly love. By the time we realize this isn’t truly what we desire in life it’s almost too late… we’ve created the job or career, the marriage, the children but yet it doesn’t look or feel the way we thought it would. We now come to terms that this may not have been our dream yet we made it ours. Why?
At what point in life can we be honest with ourselves and say this isn’t my dream, my heart and soul desires this…..(fill in the blank).
I have been coming to terms with many beliefs that are not mine, they are from my parents, my family, society, and so on. I have been breaking many of the beliefs people thought I should have. I am not married, no children, I am an entrepreneur and travel the world as much as I can yet to some people think my life is “lacking” because there is no marriage with children.
It has been in my forties that I honestly do not care anymore about what others feel or think about how I should live my life, I’m free of the judgement that should have never been there in the first place. I am letting go of and surrendering the life that my family and/or society had planned for me and I’m accepting with open arms the life that is waiting for me! The life that I create without limiting beliefs, without judgement and without guilt or shame.
We all have our own journey and once we’re awakened on the inside there is no more resisting what your heart and soul truly desire. Follow your path, lead with your heart and soul and don’t allow the distractions to pull you off track. There are always lessons to be learned and growth to be had, and I am grateful for all of them but never allow someone’s opinion to out-rank your true belief of who you are and where you’re going. Sometimes the people around you won’t understand your journey. They don’t need to. It’s not for them.
Allow the beauty of your own life to unfold.. reveal the greatest version of you in your time.
