HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING WHEN IT FEELS LIKE THE UNIVERSE HAS PULLED THE RUG OUT FROM UNDERNEATH YOUR FEET
"You believe that creating your best possible life is a matter of deciding what you want and then going after it, but in reality, you are psychologically incapable of being able to predict what will make you happy.
Your brain can only perceive what it’s known, so when you choose what you want for the future, you’re actually just re-creating a solution or an ideal of the past. Ironically, when said ideas don’t come to fruition (things never look the way we think they will) you suffer, because you think you’ve failed, when really, you’re most likely experiencing something better than you could have chosen for yourself at the time. (Moral of the story: Living in the moment isn’t a lofty ideal reserved for the zen and enlightened, it’s the only way to live a life that isn’t infiltrated with illusions... it’s the only thing your brain can actually comprehend.)"
---Brianna Wiest, 8 Subconscious Behaviors That Are Keeping You From the Life You Want
Just fucking do it
that is living...
that is life...
that is success
If it feels right, easy, like sunlight,
move towards it as fast as possible...
Take the path of least resistance and allow life to unfold as you remain present moment to moment cherishing the magic that's happening in real time around you.
So, when I went to Morocco on a spontaneous trip instead of sitting around doing gratitude challenges and complaining about getting paid $50K instead of $100K, I realized that self-esteem is an action, not a conversation.
It's a step you take to own the present moment by doing something completely scary that is completely for you.
Something that has been your heart's desire that you've been avoiding because it's not rational, planned out and logical.
But here's the thing, the rational, logical shit is making you miserable because it
s not your reason for being here, nor is is the sunshine you would put here to live out.
What you're longing for, missing, stuck in is the key to unlocking your purpose and until you get present enuf in your life to run towards sunlight and see what lessons live there, nothing good or meaninful or abundant happens.
Because you're not presen tin your purpose because you're too busy trying to live up to a set of expectations that have nothing to do with your SoulSong.
And that is the source of the exhaustion, the stuckness.
That exhaustion and ennui and failure tomake the ends meet, and live life in the now without struggle are messages that you're ignoring.
They are messages sent to alert you to the fact that you're not in sync with your core values, the life lessons you were put here to get right this time and your purpose.
And until you start listening to those messages and release the struggle, the universe will continue to manifest a shitload of obstacles until the rug is finally pulled out from under you so you have no choice but to become present to your purpose.
Yeah...get present with what you love, why you're here, what you're proud of, what makes your heart sing because in the midst of all that lives your purpose and the set of lessons you were put here to learn so that you can sing your Soul's unique Song.
That song is what the world is waitng for...that song is what you were put here to do...that song is you legacy.
Are you listening for it?
