The Life that is Waiting for You
We must be willing to let go of the life we've planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us ~ Joseph Campbell
Happy New Year, once again! I hope your year is starting off the way you want! Mine sure is...
This is a great time of year to examine your life and determine whether you're missing out on anything. Traditionally it's the time of year most individuals and organizations review their goals for the upcoming year and start working towards them. And that's why today's quote seems so appropriate.
I let go of the life I had planned five years ago when my partner and I moved from Denver, Colorado to Bella Vista, Arkansas. I knew that I wouldn't live in Colorado for my entire life, I just didn't realize it would be so soon before I left. It was during the employment transition that I started writing my first novel. Five years later, I've written two novels and have started a third. I'll be looking to publish the first two this year.
So if you're struggling in your dream journey, see if you can determine if there's anything you haven't let go to make it happen. Maybe there's something you're holding onto that is preventing you from having the life that is waiting for you?
What are your New Year's Resolutions/Goals? I'd love to hear!
