Is it just me?
Over the years on my quest to ‘ find the real me’, many wonderful people have advised me to follow my souls’ yearnings, to put myself first in achieving my dreams.
And yet, I know from the trial and error of living, putting myself first can mean stopping, dropping or eliminating parts of my life that I don’t want to. I just don’t OK.
So I wonder is my soul is calling me, or not? Surely soul following requires some sacrifice on my part.
Maybe, my soul yearnings are just sweet nothings whispering to my heart.
Sweet nothings that tease but don’t tug. Sweet nothings that require no actions to be taken.
Some will say that it’s not my heart, or soul, calling me. That when it happens for real I will know. I’ll just know and everything will fall into place.
I’m not holding my breath until that happens. Life is too sweet, too good to wait for a calling.
Instead, I’m choosing to live my life with a fullness, a richness, that resonates with my inner well-being.
I don’t have the time to wish, or wash, away what I already love about my life.
More to the point, I don’t have the inclination.
So where does that leave me?
Joyfully following my heart. Trusting my inner wisdom will guide me. If it feels right then it’s time to choose whether, or not, I go with it. If it doesn’t sit comfortably then it’s a no. Simple as.
