A week to stand in your own power, truth and integrity.
Sometimes it is easier to rely on everyone else's opinions, thoughts and suggestions. They are priceless they truly are but the reality is what you do, how you choose to live your life that has to be decided by your own choice. If it isn't you will never be able to feel true happiness.
A part of that choice is also the choice to allow things to take time, to have patience. To not throw your hands in the air and give up because you didn't have the instant success you were expecting.
Rome was not built in a day and your dreams and goals will not be accomplished over night.
This morning I was reminded by reading one of my favourite quotes "Somehow I can't believe there are many heights that can't be scaled by a man who knows the secret of making dreams come true. This special secret can be summarized in four C's. They are: curiosity, confidence, courage and constancy, and the greatest of these is confidence." --Walt Disney.
I was later reminded by an oracle card my daughter pulled and left on the table "Every living thing takes time to grow. Be patient and enjoy the time while you blossom.
Growth takes time, transformation requires a lot of energy, inner shifts and movement. Just because to the outside eye you do not see it immediately happening does not mean nothing is happening.
Trusting in the process can be one of the most challenging tasks in life.
This modern world has made us accustom to instant replies via email or text, google gives us access to endless knowledge and everything we need can be ordered in just a couple of clicks.
But some things still take time. Success is certainly one of them. Belief in yourself is another. Don't let the time, the waiting to allow you to question your confidence and instead plunge forward being the confident individual you are meant to be. Trust in the process and that if that item was not meant for you I do not believe you would desire it.
I may have not ended up living in the beach front property in Costa Rica as my husband and I had planned a few short years ago but I trust that ocean front home will still make it's way into our lives eventually, I believe it and I trust it is coming.
Let me clarify that does not mean I will sit back and never take action, no when I know the time has come and we are ready for our beach house you can bet your boots I will be in there searching, looking, making offers but until that thought is at the front of my mind again I will focus on growing the things I want to make happen NOW. The beach house can wait, my purpose and dharma this life... that can not!
It is up to you to decide on your journey, on how long you will stay at the job your dislike, in the relationship that is draining you, in the debt that barricades you. But I forewarn you if you are ready for change be prepared for the opinions of others.
They share their judgement mostly with intentions of love but forget that their words of doubt can plant deep seeds. But your decisiveness will be the rototiller to stir up the weed and get rid of it for good!
So when you decide on your path, decide whole heartedly, move forward and do not lose patience with the process, trust in the momentum and believe in the journey; just do not be afraid to step on the stones-- of discomfort either because the path is not all sand, however your soles are tough so stand tall and move forward...
