The hardest part of a new beginning is that a chapter in life closes. The uncertainty that follows this transition can be accompanied by an overwhelming sense of fear or it can become a beautiful blessing after a long struggle. The sacrifices it will take to make necessary changes in your life may not be welcomed with the open arms of encouragement that you would like to feel from others. The journey you undertake is an individual one although you can have similar aspirations as someone else you may arrive to your particular destiny at a different point in your life. Discovering the greatness within requires that you relinquish your old sense of self to embrace the unpolished form of who you are to create a masterpiece that has yet to be unveiled. Overall, moving forward always involves leaving something behind but most importantly there is always an interesting lesson in resilience on the road to personal happiness.
Unhappiness is a catalyst that forces you to evaluate the source of the discomfort. As you grow older you lose the innocence of your childhood becoming consciously aware of how your decisions and actions shape your life. The American Dream of wealth, education and success can be achieved but in the back of many our minds is the lingering question, “What’s next and why with so much in abundance in your life do you still feel so incomplete?”. This question is the conscious letting you know that you have either made a detour on the pathway to your true passion or that complacency just isn’t going to lead you to the promise land of self assurance. Life provides many opportunities for growth but many times there is a battle between conforming to the norm and choosing to illuminate in your individuality. Conforming to the norm is usually the easier choice to follow because it allows you to blend in the crowd with little or no objection from others. Illuminating in your individuality however can mean rocking the boat and losing some friends or associates that are uncomfortable in who you are and the better person you are trying to become. No matter which way you choose to go it is impossible to satisfy everyone. It’s okay to step outside your comfort zone if it brings you closer to your dreams or a vision inside of you that is waiting to manifest.
Dreams are desires of the heart that can be made possible through talents, gifts and divine inspiration but are often blocked by mundane activities and the worst obstacles of all which are fear and self doubt. These insecurities can hinder your future development and the possibility of choosing a promising career verses simply a job. The process it takes to figure out just what it is you enjoy and love to do is like a whirlwind trip at first until you settle your need to understand everything immediately. The biggest challenge is letting go of what you think will always work in addition to identifying your individual weaknesses that you have previously let work against you. Nothing is more powerful then living within the possibility that in whatever tomorrow will bring you can be victorious. Let the outcome of your circumstances teach you a valuable lesson instead of dreading or regretting the situation.
The discovery of what it is you love to do is a beautiful epiphany, but fostering it into a reality may involve a lifestyle change bigger then you could have ever imagined. Life seldom creates the perfect ideal or the best timing to do anything. This is why you may choose to walk into the unknown taking a leap of faith to find the pathway to your destiny. The unknown is not a familiar place and on this journey you’ll find strangers who provide guidance through wisdom and sometimes friends who will meet you with the eyes of skepticism. You may also find personal grievances that overwhelm you at times but in order to move on you must respect it as the process it takes to be the best you can be. It is important that you realize that success is not the result of perfection but the outcome of hard work, determination and the continuous will to achieve against all odds.
The point at which you start living within your greatness is a wonderful experience. The new beginning also means that you have left behind a person, place, attitude or way of life. This can be refreshing and also a bit difficult when you are accustomed to certain habits it is a challenge to take on the unfamiliar. The change can be pleasurable if you welcome it with open arms and remember that you must constantly grow to abandon complacency. Your patience and willingness to persevere is what will take you to the next level on this journey to your blessings. You will never completely disarm fear but if you embrace and look beyond its confinement it cannot block your vision. Today you are what the past didn’t expect and tomorrow you will be what you presently desire so aim for the very best. Overall, it’s a beautiful struggle once you realize that it is absolutely necessary in order for you to become the extraordinary person you are destined to be.
