Stop. Note to Self.


Yes, just stop.

Sit down for a moment, instead of rushing through life as if it is a race.

It isn't.

Sit down and feel your body. Is it telling you a change is needed?

You're not going to live forever, you know. Life can be very short.

What is it that you truly want? Deep in your soul.

Listen to that voice. Go deeper. Don't stop.

Peel back the layers on your deepest self until your soul's voice is clear and loud.

Where do you want to be?
How do you want to live?
What do you want to be remembered for..?

Dig dip. Don't run away from the fact that you may need to change every aspect of your life.

Just for a moment, don't run or numb yourself with your self-soothing instrument of choice.

Your life is now, and only now.

Stop running... Stop and feel.

Feel the doubt, the uncertainty, the fear.. Open and allow yourself to be changed.

Are you afraid of losing - relationships, money, control, job, identity..?

Feel it through. Then let go. It's only when we let go that we are truly free to embrace our calling.

Embrace your calling and pursue it with every ounce of your being.

Because you can never fail when you're pursuing a calling.

The pursuit is the reward. Not the outcome.

Let go and enjoy the ride.
