Do I dare to begin moving forward on a new journey? At this age? Right now? Here?
As the old year winds down, I take time to ponder how I want to move forward into the new one. It’s hard sometimes to see just how far I’ve come in the past year when it seems I still have so-o-o-o far to go. And I know I’m not the only one guilty of feeling like I haven’t accomplished as much as I wanted to during the last 12 months.
There’s a really good reason that the rear view mirror is much smaller than the windshield. Look back just long enough to give yourself credit for what you’ve accomplished. But use the windshield to move forward on the next part of your journey. And if you’re hesitant or nervous about the next part of your journey, take comfort in this quote:
Whatever you do, make sure it makes you happy. Paulo Coelho
I absolutely love the power of this quote – it sure does say a lot, now doesn’t it?
Today, instead of talking about what essential oils can do for you, I’d like to be a bigolhonkin’ ray of sunshine in your life. I’d like to be the one who helps you begin moving forward if you’re feeling stuck. Let me give you a boost of confidence especially if you are considering a new path forward or making lifestyle changes in the coming year.
So often, we allow fear to hold us back from what we really want – what our soul really wants. What is on the other side of your fear? Is it looking for a new job? Is it leaving the relationship that you’ve outgrown (or that’s painful)? Is it moving to a new city to stretch your comfort zone? Is it taking up a new hobby or pastime? Is it speaking your truth or shining your light on a situation that no longer works for you?
What’s on the other side of your fear?
Want to know a secret? I was scared to death of aromatherapy. Seriously. What if I’m not good enough? What if I don’t understand chemistry? What if no one wants what I’m offering? What if everyone thinks I’m woo woo and “out there”? What if people get mad because I’m changing my business?
I’ve spoken my truth before and stepped outside of the box that people put me in with consequences I didn’t appreciate or fully understand. I got tired of saying “what if”. Meaning what if someone doesn’t like me anymore because of my choices? What if someone gets their feelings hurt because I’m making changes to my life?
I’ve spent a lot of years trying to please everyone so that nobody gets mad. People tend to paint themselves and others into a box because it’s comfortable. And comfortable isn’t always good for us as human beings.
Y’all, we can sit in the box that other people have painted us into or we can stand up, speak our truth and say that this situation isn’t working anymore — it’s time for old endings and new beginnings.
I love Pixie Garden and Gifts and I absolutely love being the Chief Pixie – I’ve had so much fun and enjoyed your giggles when you read my title on my business card! But I had to let go of my charming boutique by the sea in order to make room for Scented Balance – a place where I really have gifts to offer to you.
Yes, I promise you that Scented Balance has its’ share of charm and whimsy but I can do so much more to help you take charge of your health instead of simply offering gifts you might need to dust. My mission has become to educate people on how to take control of their health through aromatherapy and plant-based products. #wannalookgoodnaked
But it’s time to move forward. Dare to Begin. Why not begin along with me? What do you need to let go of in the coming year?
