"I am me with my story, my body, my talents, and my limitations. I want to do what I'm good at and what makes me happy. It'll take a while before I know what 'my thing' is, but I know I'm on the right track."
Ok, I confess. Packing boxes took a little longer last week because sometimes I sat down and went through old notebooks. When I read this in an old diary from 2004, I smiled.
Sixteen years later, and here I am, pretty much on track with what is 'my thing' ;-), and I love that I have been able to focus more and more on what I am good at, and most importantly, what makes me happy.
I found other notebooks, written in my little apt in Amsterdam, or my tropical garden in Bali, or a hotel room in Malaysia. I read about my breakups and broken hearts, about craving to feel more on purpose, about having tried really hard and feeling like a failure.
Do you know that feeling that you would like to have been there for your past self? Saying YES, keep going; you indeed are on the right track!???
"You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future."
I heard that one again last weekend, and it hit home.
It's true. You are on the right track.
No matter if you are in an upward flow, or you're going through stuff that feels impossible to overcome...
You're on the right track. You can only connect the dots backward. Trust that they will.
