"We must be willing to get rid of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us."
~ Joseph Campbell
So often we allow ourselves to be "stuck" because we are waiting for or struggling to have the life we had planned to have. While there's nothing wrong with setting goals for your life or planning the sort of life you would like to have, sometimes you have to be willing to let go of those plans. You have to be willing to embrace the life that is presenting itself. Unless you are willing to explore the opportunities that are presenting themselves for a different life--one you had not planned for--you may miss out on great joy and a chance to make a difference.
This week: Allow yourself to notice the direction your life seems to be going. Are there opportunities there you had not allowed yourself acknowledge? Ask yourself: "What would happen if I let go of the life I had planned to have? Are there new opportunities out there for me?" Explore possibilities, if only in your imagination.
