There have been numerous times in my life when I was offered an opportunity to make a change but chose to stay put, not move, keep doing what I was doing. I knew that my comfort zone kept me from exploring new horizons. I also felt that I had been called to do some really tough work with kids who had been abandoned, abused and neglected and I felt I couldn’t leave them. Over time though, my heart was no longer in my work. Not because of the kids but because of the negative energy that began to surround me from a variety of folks. I would arrive home after being in a fight or flight stance exhausted, drained and sad. It became a struggle to get up and return to an environment that I had loved but no longer served my higher purpose. It is true that when one door closes another door opens. Once I made the decision to leave, several opportunities presented themselves to aid in my own transformation. People showed up in my life that were compatible with my vision and helped me to strategize the next steps in my life. Here’s what I would like you to do. I want you to start looking for opportunities. Ask yourself, “What is possible in my life?” “What are the nudges I have been ignoring?” “What are the messages that I have been getting that I have been pushing away?” My guess is you already know what the next step is. What are you waiting for? Let’s take that step and begin a journey to your best self.
