We all stumble or fall from time to time, but what if falling or failing wasn’t a signal to stop? What if stumbling on our journey was actually an invitation to pause, reflect and begin again?
For months, I had been going strong. I was acting on my ideas and bringing my vision to life. I took on more and more, I was going to do it all and do it all well. Then suddenly, in the midst of a project I had been planning for months, I didn’t want to do any of it anymore.
I found myself worn out and exhausted. I needed a break and yet I didn’t see how I could take one. I was busy beyond belief, there was always something to be done, but what was it all for?
Somewhere along the way, I lost sight of my vision.
Somewhere along the way, I lost my sense of direction, of what mattered most (to me).
Somewhere along the way, my dream and sense of purpose were lost in all of the “shoulds” and “supposed tos.”
Somewhere along the way, I lost my sense of hope.
I was no longer living with a sense of purpose and love, I was living out of a sense of obligation and fear.
I needed to stop doing. I needed to give myself space to slow down and be. I needed to dream again. I needed to let go of what anyone else might think and reconnect with what I truly wanted and what matter most (to me).
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing a series of posts all about my journey back to living heart-fully. For today, I invite you to return to hope. I invite you to take a bit of time today to connect with your heart’s desire. I invite you to explore the following questions through writing, meditation, art or any method that best works for you.
What matters most (to you)?
What do you long to create or experience?
Who do you want to be?
How do you want to live??
What are you moving towards?
What are you ready to invite into your life?
What is your grandest vision for your life?
Please allow yourself to play with possibilities. You are not committing to anything here, you’re exploring. No one else needs to know your responses, this is just for you. Allow yourself to connect with what you truly want.
The first step to living heart-fully, is returning to hope. We return to hope when we take a step back from the busyness of daily life and allow ourselves to dream again.
Here’s to opening our hearts and daring to play with possibility!
With love and gratitude for you,
