in a minute
My biggest lessons lately have been trust and letting go.
three months ago my life drastically changed. i decided to leave my job which i was so grateful for and proud of myself for achieving as an environmental engineer to move back home for awhile to have time close to my family, traveling, and pursuing things that i love doing. i didn’t know how exactly it would all pan out, i didn’t even completely understand why i wanted this, but something deep inside of my told me i needed to let go of the life i had created and jump into the unknown. i didn’t do this all at once. in fact, i knew i would be making this transition for a few months prior, so i took small steps every day to prepare myself. even though i often faced feelings of doubt and fear, i trusted my intuition and kept going.
three months in, and i’m so thankful that i went for it. sure, there have been times when i have questioned myself, my decisions, my worthiness, and my capabilities to live a life with more freedom, connection, and love. however, when these feeling have come up, i do not act on them. i sit with them. i question them. i sift and sort until i understand where they are coming from. and then i let them go because i know that they are just fears, not reality, not an indication of what will come.
i choose only to act on love. i act when i feel excitement or eagerness for an idea. i act when i feel drawn in and compelled by a force that feels good. maybe it’s god, maybe it’s the universe, maybe it’s my intuition, maybe it’s all of all three. it’s that force that speaks with kindness and leads with patience and love that i choose to listen to.
and when i follow that flow, everything keeps working out.
and i trust it always will.
and i am ever so grateful.
💛 i love you so so so much renee!
