To travel is to take a journey into yourself…Choices, Chances, Changes

The 3 C’s of Life – Choices, Chances, Changes
You must make a Choice to take a Chance or your life will never Change. Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the
play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.

So it’s 3 a.m. and I’m awake…again! I’ve been tossing and turning for several weeks now…or months, stop marking the days on the calendar a while back. Normally when I have trouble dozing off it’s because I have a lot on my heart and mind…. In attempting to slow down my thoughts I always stop to listen to the beat of my heart…

So what’s on my mind at this hour you ask?  Family, Life, relationships/friendships (some that have been lost, some that are stagnant, some that are absolutely AMAZING!) Basically my heart is in overdrive tonight and I just wanted to send a thank you and a little love to all of you that are with me along this journey that I am on.

I have WAY too much time to think and analyze as I travel along and see all of the different  ways of life and I realize what is most important to me. I also realize that our souls always know when it’s time to move on. We fight those feelings, we resist them…we try to stuff them down or shoo them away….but our souls are persistent and keep sending messages….in fact, messages usually start coming from every direction when it is time.

It is hard to move on. It is hard to embrace the changes that moving on brings. It is hard to navigate away from what is comfortable and what we know….even when we know we’ve outgrown it or that it is destructive to us in many ways. Many times, we stay in places where we know we don’t belong simply because it is what we know…and we are too afraid of moving on and into  the unknown.

Listen to those gentle and not-so-gentle pushes that your soul is trying to communicate. Moving on is important….if we don’t move forward, we stay stuck. It’s like a stream…or a river…when it stands still, it gets mucky and contaminated….it is good to constantly be finding your flow to be growing and learning and moving.

I’m thinking it is time for me to move on in some areas of my life in order to keep moving forward. For the people that I hold in my heart, but haven’t really been by my side…My wish for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to, your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small, you never need to carry more than you can hold, and while you’re out there getting where you’re getting to, I hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too…this is my wish ♥

    Great post! And couldn’t agree more with that image quote. When I got divorced, I saw a lot of friends leave me. They didn’t make an effort to make sure I was okay and now they aren’t in my life. I have close friends in that experience now and I would do anything for them.
