Did you ever a picture a life that you knew you were supposed to have?
Oddly enough, life has an interesting way of throwing you curve balls. Sometimes the paths you thought and hoped you would take don't always go in that direction.
Naturally at the time it seems frustrating and you wonder what you could've done to get it down the path you had hoped would happen.
But as you continue to watch, your journey most of the time ends up better than you had anticipated.
When I was really young, I thought I had my whole life mapped out.
I thought I found the marriage I wanted, the dreams I wanted were moving in the right direction and in my mind, all was right in the world.
The only problem was me. I wasn't right.
Because the more I learned about myself the more I realized the life I was creating was not the life I really wanted.
It was a combination of my upbringing, the expectations of what people expected out of me and the pressure I put on myself to do what a woman in my situation was to do.
I was wrong. Dead wrong.
Fortunately for me, I was exposed to good books, people with larger minds than mine and a heart that had the tenacity to go out and re-create a new life for me.
Was it scary? Absolutely. But once my eyes were opened and I could feel the beat of my heart beating loudly, I had to do it. I had to move forward. Thankfully my feet lead me one step at a time.
Maybe that's you. Perhaps your life hasn't gone as planned and your wondering what your next move is.
Surely by now you were supposed to have met the partner that would champion you on your journey. But for whatever reason that person isn't there.
Let me encourage you. Take one step forward, keep your eyes opened and ask your heart to be courageous enough to lead the way.
You can do this.
