I’m constantly amazed at what a difference a day, a week, a month makes. In my last blog, I mentioned that we were looking for a new place to rent.
At the same time, I’ve been trying to trust the universe to provide what I need, at exactly the right time. Not a moment too soon or too late.
And it didn’t disappoint.
In two weeks, Sophie and I found our dream space. I meditated on it, journalled about it, and went to look at it about 50 times before I decided to take the plunge and put in my application.
It was accepted and I can’t believe that, in under a month, my perfect studio that I’ve been visualising for years, will become a reality.
But then reality hit. I have 26 days to pack up an entire house while teaching full-time, playing taxi to a very busy teenager, and not lose my focus on my other goals.
Talk about a mood killer.
I felt the excitement in every cell in my body, yet I was too anxious to really feel it. How was I going to make this all happen?
My so-called problem was ironically also the answer. I realised that if I embraced and leveraged my excitement, this would be a piece of cake. And so, I decided to let my excitement drive me, to keep me motivated with every box I seal, and to push me to pack just another. And another. I’m letting it drive me forward, closer and closer to my dream.
I don’t want my fear and anxiety to suppress this feeling of achievement and self fulfilment. I want to bask in the fact that it’s taken me four years to get to this point. Four hard years, with tough lessons and countless moments of wanting to give up.
I want it to serve as a reminder of where I was then and where I’m headed now. A reminder that I can do anything I put my mind to. A reminder that I wouldn’t have gotten here without my support system, and for that I am eternally grateful. A reminder that it’s ok to rely on others for help. A reminder that it’s ok to stand on the shoulders of others who want to help you to reach the top. A reminder that I’m finally starting to grow into my potential. And you can, too.
I read something that resonated with me recently: If you get tired, learn to rest, not to quit.
Quitting is never an option when the reason why you want something is bigger than what you want. There are plenty of options. Ask for help when you need it. Take the day off when you’re not feeling motivated. But don’t give up.
Believe that you can achieve your most burning desires and trust in the process. It will happen for you, I promise. Remember, baby steps still move you forward.
My Transformational Body & Mind Life Coaching clients are working through some pretty deep stuff to uncover their desires and to identify the blocks that are preventing them from achieving their goals in health, fitness, money, and relationships.
Nobody has life figured out. We figure it out as we go along and encounter new challenges and opportunities. But if we remember that we’re not alone on this journey, together, we’re unstoppable.
Never stop believing in yourself. Because I do.
