I felt guilty. There was unrest in my heart and I felt conflicted about so many things…
My life was in transition mode, but I didn’t know it. I was experiencing restlessness and angst about where I was in my life and it made me uncomfortable. I felt guilty. I should be content with my life.
I didn’t understand that those feelings were “normal” when you are at a place in your life where a change is approaching. And so, I did what I knew. I prayed and asked God for direction and clarity. The process of understanding those nudges and feelings of discomfort takes time. If we don’t process them with an open heart, we can be misdirected.
Misdirection can appear in many ways. We chase after the wrong things and we end up in a stagnant place of frustration.
In 2010, my journey to become “un-stuck” began. This is when I simply surrendered where I was in my life and pursued what was in my heart. My calling to create art and to teach others how to pursue their dreams began to take shape. As I began to surrender, opportunities appeared for me to grow in my gifts. There’s no secret formula for this to happen. It simply requires an honest look at who you are.
I believe there is a way to reach those dreams that are inside of us. It takes some self-reflection, faith, trust, and courage. It also takes healthy relationships. People who know you and are for you. When we do some honest soul searching, clarity becomes evident. An important ingredient in this journey is the gift of time. It’s a journey that doesn’t happen overnight and we make progress as we continually embrace the gift of grace.
