Step away from the package

I feel like I’m at a family wedding, that until the alcohol flows, everyone sits on either side of the dancefloor looking at each other and only kids, who have no fear of ridicule, take to the dancefloor.

I can sense the sabotage of my mind playing with me, finding excuses as to why today isn’t the day to change things up with my blog.

So I am still lost in thought, and that never ends up with anything productive, on where to go, preferring to go back to the same style and content rather than take the plunge.

It’s funny in many things in life now I have learnt to take the plunge and just start without thought, knowing that a small step is all that is needed to move forward. No surprise my life is moving where I want it to go. However, as the blog is going out into the public domain, the fear is greater.

Just stop the thinking and just do it. It is the only answer, but strangely knowing it does not make it any easier to do. I think that when I surrender and stop the resistance to changing and let go, then the natural flow of creativity will come to me, the universe always brings the answer.

I need to write from the soul and step away from the package.

Journeys and destinations

Following on from yesterday, yet more thinking out loud…what is the next step?

Do I share stories? Do I blog weekly? Do I start mapping out processes?

Do I stop thinking about it and allow the creativity to flow from the soul?

The thing is we all fear changing something, we fear taking away the armour and becoming vulnerable. We fear stepping out of the shadows. We are the director, producer and owner of our own movie, yet instead of being the lead role we end up sitting in the background being an extra. We are extras in our own film!!!

The best stuff always comes when we let go, when stop listening to the voices inside and outside our head. When we truly show up as ourselves and just be.

Take the plunge and follow the ripples and the current. See where it takes you. After all, it doesn’t actually matter.

I’m still on the fence…I need to jump off and pick a path, one step at a time the journey will unfold. I can change the path at any point but better to choose a path and take a step than to never walk the paths of life.

If I focus on the doing and not the destination then the joy of writing will return.

Journeys and not destinations is what life is.
