I saw this quote online recently and instantly knew I had to share it with all of you.
If you’ve been following my adventures over the past 6-months or so you’ll know that back in February I took a leap of faith and walked away from the life I was living, embarking on a new life that was as yet unmoulded.
I found myself faced with a completely blank canvas, a position from which I could restart and repaint my life. Suddenly, my future was stretched out in front of me like a wide and open road disappearing over the horizon and it seemed full of possibility.
It was simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying.
But life has a funny way of guiding us in the right direction and here I am, nearly 5 months down the line and I can honestly say I have never been happier. I’m content. I feel grounded. I feel like I am right where I’m supposed to be.
My life now is full of happiness, opportunity and amazing experiences and the future that lies ahead now takes on a different shape, but, as I edge towards my 30th birthday next month, I feel like I’m walking along a path paved with gold.
I said at the very beginning of this year that I could feel magic in the air and I was right; I still can.
I guess this post serves no other purpose than just to say to anybody out there who finds themselves stuck where they don’t want to be; turning your back on the familiar can be utterly terrifying, but we should never, ever ‘settle’ just for the sake of routine and a fear of change. Take a leap, follow your heart, trust your instincts and be brave – you could find it’s the best decision you’ve ever made and you’re happier than you ever knew you could be.
