About a year ago I sensed a big shift within myself. I was faced with a lot of decisions that I had to make in various areas of my life. The difference was when I went to my normal go-to answers concerning these things it just didn’t feel right. For a full month I was in complete limbo and noticed that I was trying to hang on to the direction I had been heading in for so long. It felt like I was trying to fit a circle into a square, it just wouldn’t work. After many (okay, it was almost a months worth) of nights alone in my apartment, I accepted it.
Around that time I had dinner with a couple of longtime friends. We had started talking about where I was and I looked at them and said, “I think I need to go somewhere out of my comfort zone to grow”, and it was true. The me then craved something different and if I wanted to live more authentically then I had to honor that even if it was uncomfortable.
This past year has proven to be one long ride of letting go of the old to make room for the new, all the while discovering more of myself in the process. I’ve ended up swinging the door wide open for new experiences, new people and amazing possibilities.
When life presents us with new direction sometimes we’ll act like we don’t see it. Not because it’s not there, but because it not familiar. I’ve come to realize life has a funny way of nudging us along anyway even when we’re not sure of it.
