“Stepping onto a brand new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation which is not nurturing.”—Maya Angelou
How many of us stay in a situation that makes us unhappy only because we are afraid to do anything to change it? Whether it’s a relationship, a career, or any part of our life that is no longer feeding our soul. We are more powerful and stronger than we really think we are. Time and time again, we are tested with life’s challenges and we come out of it all right. Perhaps better than all right-stronger, renewed, maybe even better and shinier than before! You know what I’m talking about. You’ve been there.
Is it time again? Only you know when it is time to take action. Only you know when it is time to take the reigns and get (back) on the path that nourishes your spirit. Listen and trust that voice inside and trust the feelings you’re having in any moment. Those feelings are coming to you because they speak the Truth. It is a wisdom you have and that you must use. Stop ignoring them. They’re not there to nag. They’re there to direct you. If what we’re truly feeling doesn’t match what we’re saying, there’s a discord…a misalignment with our Truth. And this causes us to stray off from the path that nurtures our spirit.
Face it, you cannot run away from your truth. Stuffing it down or ignoring it won’t make it go away. Doing so will make it scream even louder because it wants to be heard and needs to be acknowledged. What we resist persists. Accept it, nurture it, and be gentle with yourself. It takes courage to face the truth. The truth isn’t always pleasant and it can be damn right scary…but totally worth it.
