There are moments in life where you'll be scared. Where you won't know which way to go. Which decision to make. What's right or wrong.
And that's okay!
It's okay to be scared. It's okay to not have the answers.
What's not okay is burying your head in the sand and pretending like nothing is wrong. Or hiding away from the world. Or continuing down the same path of destruction.
Be scared, but make forward progress. Put yourself out there. Make mistakes. Learn from them. Grow. Change. Get stronger. Start over again.
Something I had to come to terms with is that you are never too old to start over. To have new dreams. To begin again.
We get into our heads, thinking that we have to be in a certain place by a certain age. And we aren't allowed to deviate from that.
I mean...I didn't get married until my mid-30s. And I never thought I'd end up divorced. Ever. But life has a funny way of shaking things up. Of getting us exactly where we need to be. Even if the journey there isn't the most fun.
Before my life was flipped upside down, I was scared to do a lot of things. I was scared to try new things. I was timid. I played the "what if" game with just about everything. I mean...anything could go wrong! I could fail! *Gasp*
But now? Well...now I know I can survive a whole lot more than I ever imagined. I have been to rock bottom and I survived.
This, my friends, makes it easier for me to try new things. To make changes. And to start all over again.
I've started all over again numerous times now. I've started my own business. I've left a very cushy, secure government job. I got divorced, after telling everyone I was never going to get divorced. I was a one and done type of married woman. I've changed directions in my business. I've added new specialties. I've taken things out of my business. I've gotten married again. And am now working on starting a family.
I love the things that have happened in my life to get me where I am now. In the moments, of course, they weren't fun and I wish I could've changed them. But I wouldn't have learned anything had they hadn't happened. I wouldn't be the woman I am today without those things happening.
Life changes. Circumstances change. We have to be willing to grow and adapt and change with them. Otherwise, we stay stuck in the same place. I don't know about you, but I don't want to stay stuck!
So be willing to grow...even if you're scared. Be willing to make changes...even if you're scared. Get up, get out there, open up to new ideas, learn, evolve, make changes.
I hope you all have a beautiful week. And embrace any new changes happening in your life.
With love and wellness,
