Recently I've been feeling incredibly uncertain about the direction I want my life to take. I have so many options open to me & although I know that I'm incredibly lucky to be in this position, the decisions are hard. The deciding is hard. I'm a planner by nature, I like to know where I'm headed and what I need to do to get there. I like to check the steps off one at a time until I've achieved what I needed to, got to where I wanted to go. There are lists I could write for each option. Steps to take, actions to complete. But first I feel like I need to decide. To commit to a path and start walking it. Head or heart. Soul or sense. Passion or profit.
I found this image browsing flickr this week and it resonated with me, as quotes often do. Nothing can stop time from carrying me forward & past experience has taught me that I'm usually pretty good at making the right call when it comes down to it. I don't have to make sense of absolutely everything that's going on around me as it happens - and its probably best not to try.
So this week I'm not going to stress about the future, I'm not going to lie awake at night weighing up pro's and con's and trying to reason everything out. I'm going to take a deep breath, hold in all that confusion for a second or two, and then just let it go. Find some peace and just be for a little while. Things will work out. They always do.
How do you cope when you have difficult life decisions to make? Are you an obsessive over-thinker or are you able to just go with the flow and see what life brings?
Motivation Mondays is a series where I share images, quotes, videos or whatever else I find that really gets my brain going and/or my creative juices flowing. Being on a motivation/inspiration high is such a beautiful feeling and I want to really push myself to discover it every. single. week. Ideally every day, but no-one's that positive, right?!
