“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea.

We sometimes go off track to follow the pack in pursuit of what we recognize as happiness on the outside. That’s when we feel off and conflicted on the inside. There is something else calling us into the unknown.
I have had points in my life when I realized that I had gone so far down the wrong path that I felt confused, lost, and stuck. The tendency during these times is to hold tighter – we need to make this work because it is working for everyone else. This resistance to what wants to be birthed within us causes deep suffering.
Instead, what if we let go? Yes, that exposes us to uncertainty, which we know is scary, but it also creates space to try something different – listening to our heart and trusting our gut. What is possible then?
