It’s shocking and possibly—probably—a little bit painful when you realize that you already know what you’re supposed to be doing.
Oh, you’ve been telling yourself that you don’t.
You’ve gotten so gosh darn good at pretending you don’t know what you’re meant to be doing that you’ve bought into your own story.
You say you’ve been committed to what you want…but are you?
Your goals. Your vision. Your dreams.
All of the things you say that you want. All the things you say you’re trying to achieve, to manifest.
You want them; you can have them, but have you fully committed to them?
It’s easier to do the damn thing than it is to continually think about doing it.
Have you ever noticed that?
So many times you think, and think, and think some more about getting the damn thing done. You think so much that the very idea of actually doing it makes you want to curl up and hide.

It’s not someplace that you’re one day going to magically arrive at and be done. Oh no, it’s not.
It’s a journey.
If you’re happy because something outside of you exists then what are you going to do if it ceases to exist?
Everything is temporary.
When you choose to be happy because you got the promotion, signed the deal, bought the house, got the ring then are you really fully happy?
Your worthiness was never in question. Stop looking for the answers outside of yourself. It’s crazy-making trying to live your dreams that way. No one knows better than you what you want. No one knows how you want to feel and what you want to do in this beautiful, messy thing called life better than you do.
What if every decision you’ve made has been the right one? What if making the “wrong” decision was impossible? How would that change the way you show up? How would your attitude about yourself and your life change if you believed that every decision you’ve made was the right one? Because here’s the thing…
