My life has changed immensely in a short period of time. What’s more wild is that I don’t even notice it 99% of the time. Two years ago I was headed in a completely different direction from the place I sit now. It really is unbelievable how each decision truly shapes your life. You may not even know it when it is happening or realize until years later but every single decision you make impacts you eventually.
It’s simple, really. It’s what you are told from childhood and throughout adulthood, but the ramifications are never apparent until you pause.
Take a pause.
When I reflect I recall hearts I broke, people who broke mine, days I thought would surely kill me, and a multitude of great memories.
As I sit here now I am so grateful.
I am grateful for my courage to listen to my intuitions no matter how long it took my heart and mind to agree. I am grateful for every soul that has touched mine, negatively or positively. I am grateful for change, for growth, for pain, and for happiness. I am grateful to love and to be loved.
I am grateful to be alive.
I’ve said it many times and I will say it again,
cheers to change,
cheers to growth,
and cheers to being afraid.
Because at the end of the day it will all be worth it.
