Last night after I got in bed, my mind began thinking of all the words that seemed elusive hours before when I was sitting in front of my computer. They suddenly came rushing through, sorta like an avalanche. And I couldn’t keep up with them. So I said, “fuck it” and went to sleep.
Now this morning, instead of writing about what came through, I’m writing about avalanches and fuck it. . . because I’ve been hearing – A LOT – lately that people are feeling like chucking it all in. Just quitting this “entrepreneur thing” or their business or whatever it is they’re doing.
Truth be told – I’ve been feeling that way (more so than usual) lately too. Life is shifting for many of us. Relationships are shifting. Work is shifting.
And what’s happening is that we’re either questioning where it’s all going or we’re questioning WHY we’re going there. And not only that – we’re questioning the WHAT and probably many other things – too.
I’ve known since the beginning of the year that this would be a year of simplicity. For me, that means asking what’s really working and what isn’t. It means being willing to let go of what isn’t working. It means taking a look at all of the pieces that are left after that and fine-tuning each of them into the magical beings I’m called to create.
So as I’ve been thinking about simplicity over the past few weeks and asking myself what each of these things really ARE – from coaching to design work to One Generation Peace Project to my other projects, I realized that each of them IS simple. It’s ME that makes them complicated. It’s ME who has expectations about what they are. It’s ME who holds on to the parts that are no longer serving or helpful or needed or even wanted, in some cases.
And I realized that they all are of the same essence – just like us.
I realized that each of my projects all boil down to ONE thing, that no matter WHAT I’m doing, the bottom line is the same thing. The bottom line is MY reason for being here in this lifetime right now.
Here’s what I know:
Regardless of what’s going on, regardless of the where or the why or the what or the how, regardless of what I think or what others think, regardless of anything – YOU are here to do YOU – whatever that looks like.
So as you’re questioning, as you’re seeking, as you’re defining and creating and tuning into your heart and soul, let it be simple. Strip away all the would’s and could’s and should’s and any other thing that gets in the way of the TRUE ESSENCE. Strip away anything that gets in the way of that ONE thing you’re here on this planet to BE.
And if that means you have to completely let go of everything and change course, then do it. Because what the world needs – what YOU need – is for you to be lit up like a million rays of sun.
This gig – life/biz/all of it – was meant to do YOUR WAY.
