Waking up this morning, twenty - four hours are before me. Twenty four hours, to do all the things that inspire me, to play music, to write, to work, to eat, to sleep - the list is endless. Each day we face a new challenge. We find ourselves running after something - but what would happen if we stopped, took a breath and realized that everything we've been running after is already here, within?
All we need is the intention to slow down, give ourselves a break, a moment of stillness, to listen to what our body and soul needs. Change grows from dim to bright and if you have the courage to change then you have the courage to succeed. Like everything, it takes time - so be patient and thankful for each small step you make.
As we grow up the time that lies ahead is full of expectations, it's only as time progresses that we must learn to navigate a road that is full of obstacles, bumps and detours. This road is far more interesting, but it's also scarier and unpredictable. Sometimes it just takes a giant leap of faith and leaving the comfort zone to succeed. Once again, being brave is the key. We can be comfortable and cozy in our present situation but is that enough? Is that what truly makes us happy? If the answer is no, then we need to take the leap and change.
It is hard to move on from certain things, to get rid of a burden. I personally find myself dwelling on things that have happened in the past, to look for a different ending or answer, the never ending 'what if...', but what is the point of that?
Take the risk and remove yourself from these thoughts, leave the past to the past and only take with you what it has taught you. Follow a new path and if you get lost, you can always find your way back. You are free to run, to breathe, to dance, to sing, to dream and to love.
