Is there something you really want to do in your life? A goal that you want to reach? That book you want to read, write, complete? The trip to a far off land. The dream to work in a new way so you can have more time for the things you and your family love? Do what you have in your mind to do. Follow your purpose.
“The things that excite you are not random. They are connected to your purpose. Follow them.”― Terrie Davoll Hudson
You have stressed over it. Planned over the plan and you keep on planning the plan. Some days you wake up and you are certain it is the direction you wish to take. But, in the next moment doubt crawls in.
You want to make the “right” decision to go in this new direction. Somewhere there is a passion in you to do this thing, but your concern for stability in some form may be holding you back.
Perhaps the goal is so huge that it seems daunting. Take small steps, wade in the shallow end of the pool, take a small step in the direction of your purpose. The movement does not have to be a grand gesture. Slow does not mean failure.
Slow is okay when changing the course of a cruise ship – life changes are no different.
Whatever it is: write that next chapter, finish the book, self-publish, buy that house, move to a new neighborhood, go after that new job, work from home, switch from full time to part-time work so can you do more of what you love or be with those that matter most. Whatever it may be– give it a go. Start small and build.
Perhaps you have been waiting for or praying for “signs.” Who knows, the signs may have come but you may not have noticed or heard them. Think about events, this week or last week. What have you heard? What have you seen? What are the signs that are already in your path, directing you on which way to go?
For “whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
