Mindful Monday #38 – Above the Waves
My goals for the year (to Face Fears, Be Vulnerable Always and Let Go) have been the most effective and challenging goals I have ever set, in all my years of goal setting.
Life became more challenging when I decided to take “the leap of faith” and I have not been able to catch my breath since. August was the first time, this year, that I questioned my decision to take the leap toward re-directing my life to a new vision.
I felt like I was in the ocean with no land in sight.
I didn’t tell anyone that I felt like I was treading water and I could drown if I didn’t watch it. That feeling of doubt has come up again. Rather than turn that doubt around with a positive quote or view, it weighed heavily on me, from September up to this past Monday. I felt like I was drowning, and despite all the beauty that I have found with this new vision, I started to really regret all of it.
I am in the thick of change, a change I have never experienced before.
It’s not just one thing in my life that is changing, but everything. It has been very hard to stay grounded and present. Most importantly I started to lose hope.
I’ve asked the universe a series of questions this whole time and the only message I got was be patient. Be Patient. Be Patient. As I started to turn my back on my new vision, this week, out of nowhere, a flood of answers came.
- You are on the right path.
- You are supported and love surrounds you.
- Doors are opening for you. While those doors, don’t make sense now, they will make sense in time.
- Your vision is getting stronger and clearer.
- And as I wrote this post I remembered a lesson from my month of writing, “This is happening for you.”
My Mindful Monday quote this week is a mantra from the song “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)” by Hillsong United.
