Recently I was coaching someone through making decisions on what their next step is in their business. For years, she was known for one talent, yet she was ready to follow a new path and discover new opportunities in her heart. There were many apprehensions as she wanted to know how and when it would unfold. She knew her old way of living and wanted to know her new way too. We discussed how comfortable we could get in our current roles and allow fear to hold us back from growing. Often, even if we are in an uncomfortable relationship, job, or home, we know what is expected and tend to stay there rather than follow our hearts.
We discussed that the Universe always has our backs, yet we WANT to know the HOW and WHEN something will come to fruition. I realize in times of stress; I want to LEAD the way. I want to know the how’s and when’s of the job, the relationship, whatever I desire and forget to lean in on the Universe and follow its lead rather than be the lead. Now I am a doer, and I LOVE doing. Yet I can do and still allow. I’m not asking you to stop doing, yet instead, I am asking you to dance with life rather than resist it. Life is like a dance, and the more I flow into the rhythm of it and go with the twists, turns, dips, and lifts, the more enjoyable it is. The more I trust the lead dancer (the Universe, or the Big U, as I call it), the more graceful my dance is. When I can close my eyes and TRUST, all will be well is when I can relax into the Universe’s arms and glide through life as if I were floating. Care to dance with me?
Moving forward, I invite you to dance through this next week by:
Starting your day by doing a happy dance first thing in the morning. Smile and think of what you love about yourself, those close to you, and the world in general, and move your body with gratitude for life.
Remembering to lean into life. When you are afraid of something, and often our fears show up biggest as we are close to actualizing our desires, lean into knowing there is something bigger at work for you and knows your dreams and desires and wants you to live your life fully.
My wish for you is to trust in yourself. When you trust yourself, decisions are easier to make as you know that life is a journey of unforgettable experiences that you get to choose if you want to shift them or nurture them. Through trust, you get to select the critical relationships in your life and encourage them. Through trust, you get to DANCE!
Until next time, save a dance for me.
I glide through my day led by LOVE.
