I can feel it.
It’s happened a few times in my life. Pivotal moments. Times in my life where I say, “Yes, that’s happening.” It’s often scary and it’s often incredible and it’s often nerve wracking and it’s often awesome and it’s often unexpected, yet totally expected.
I’m on the brink of one of those moments right now. Like, this very second.
It’s usually when you least expect it and it totally takes you by surprise. Yet, when that pivotal moment and that change occurs, you feel like you knew it was going to happen all along.
I realize this is extremely vague and fluffy, but I’m serious.
And I’m most certain that in the days and weeks and months to come, bits and pieces of it will come out. Right now, I’m in that space in my own head where I’m just trying to download it all. I’m trying to make sense of it.
A lot of it, for me right now, is about putting pen to paper. Or, I guess I should say, putting finger to keyboard.
It’s about putting ALL OF THE THOUGHTS down on paper in a place that I can see them, process them, and acknowledge them.
A lot has happened in the past two years. Heck, the past two months. Okay, the past two days. And I am certain, now more than ever, that it’s time that I make positive, realistic changes in my life that are going to make me the best version of myself that I can be.
For me. For my family. For my friends. For my passions. For others. For this blog. For my business. For it all.
I have got to get to the point where I’m confident, capable, and intentional (see, there’s that word of the year again…) with it all.
And what is “it,” exactly?
And so much more.
When I think to other points in my life that I see / felt / saw as pivotal, I think about what I did to embrace those moments and embrace those times and face them head on.
Our culture hates change. We hate facing our own weaknesses. We hate acknowledging our fears. We hate verbalizing our doubts. We despise self-analysis.
Yet, it’s so freeing once it finally happens.
The moment that we take the opportunity to really, brutally, honestly look at ourselves as people… that’s the moment that we can take inventory of WHAT REALLY MATTERS.
And here I am. I’m at that place. I’m taking inventory. I’m searching… DEEP within my soul. I’m searching for that thing that drives me and makes me who I am.
And I think… I think… I’m almost certain I’ve found it.
Now it’s just all about knowing what to do with it.
And that’s the hardest step. But the step I’m most excited about.
