‘You were never meant to predict the ebbs and flows.’
As you navigate the open waters of your life, there’s no telling where the sails of your boat may direct you; what’s far more important than knowing how you’ll get somewhere in the end is having faith that you’ll get there without knowing how. That in and of itself is perhaps the hardest part of the journey—believing in yourself when the path is unclear, and perhaps when no one else currently does.
As I navigate my own scary waters, I’ve questioned, doubted, and wondered whether I was making the right decisions in my life. It’s so difficult to trust your gut while believing in the uncertainty that lies ahead. But what I can tell you from personal experience is that trusting your gut and allowing yourself to drift with the current is perhaps the best decision I’ve ever made.
As long as you know where you want to go, there is nothing more liberating than realizing that anything is possible if you’re willing to stay committed to your journey, believe that you are receiving the growth that you need in this moment now, and persevere through the seemingly rough times in your life that lie ahead for you. Those difficult times will help you become the person you’ve always wanted to be.
So give yourself permission to grow into the person you’ve always aspired to be.
Give yourself permission to take a risk in your life on something that you truly believe in because you see what your life could be if you’re willing to just go out there and try.
The only way we fail in life is if we give up entirely. Be brave enough to bet on yourself when time gets hard, knowing that in the end, you will be okay no matter what. You will always be okay. There are no wrong turns in life.
Every moment has led you into the person you are today.
You are exactly where you are meant to be.
