Listen to your gut?

Many of us have those hopes, dreams, and goals we dare not utter to another soul for fear of ourntiny flame being ousted. Perhaps your closest family member, spouse, or best friend may hear whispers of your deep desires and hidden wishes. Sometimes there isn’t another person you trust with the tiny dream in its infancy. Sometimes you are the only one that can fan your flame while holding a little umbrella to protect it from the doubtful downpour. 

There are times when it feels as though we are the only ones in our corner with this gut feeling that we must protect and pursue our dream. Your dream may take you off of the well lit path into the dark dim terrsin. You may be unsure of your footing but your dream grows brighter lighting your path. One day when your flame shines bright you may look back and see others making their way down the trail you blazed. 

Refocus

Sometimes it’s good to realign your actions with your values. It can be challenging, in a world seemingly littered with obstacles, fear, destitution, and heartache, to maintain your identity and follow through according to your values. There’s a time to rest and repair yourself and there is also a time to step forward and continue on your path. Well for me, it’s more like simultaneously shifting in and out of self-care, refocusing, and continuing towards my goals while reminding myself to help the people around me as well. Sometimes we get off track. It may a little detour or it may be a bare footed journey across harsh terrains to reach our goals. Our path can always be rerouted. Some ways are longer than others. All that matters is that you arrive eventually. Sometimes the places we think are the destination turn​ out to be pitstops. We simply reset and continue onward.
