I love this ad! Three little words that say it all. I am inspired today by another post from Jess over at Makeunder My Life. She suggests that we stop asking for advice and start listening to our spirit. She always seems to come up with exactly the right post I need, at exactly the right time.
I am struggling to find my next adventure. I am ready to take the next step but I am unsure about where to put my foot. I have read all the self-help books and blogs I can stand! I have thought hard, meditated and tried unsuccessfully to hear what my heart is longing for. I don't have a goal-other than finding my goal, so I can't make lists and create tasks to get there. If I can't think of anything I want, does that mean I already have everything I need? Hmmm?! I am looking for meaningful work. As I've said before, my full-time job as a mom is coming to an end. I don't know what to do with myself. I have entirely too much free time! My marriage is good, I have good relationships with my family and friends, I am in good health, I volunteer, but I am bored. I never finished college because I was supporting my family and having children. So I can't even fall back on my early training. What am I supposed to be doing with myself?
I DON'T KNOW!
I do know that I am not getting anywhere sitting still, searching for answers in what has worked for other people. So I am going to stop thinking about everyone else's journey and concentrate on my own. I am going to start this process with very literally putting one foot in front of the other. I am going to start walking. Maybe the movement of my body will trigger the movement I need between my heart and my head. I need to experience forward movement and this is the simplest most concrete way of doing that. We shall see what happens.
