There is a saying in Spanish that goes, “One set of arms push me away, another set are waiting to embrace me”, life has a way of changing your path and you will fight it out of confusion – don’t, you are being redirected to the right place. 

Sometimes we fight stubbornly to go in a direction, we stand panting from the struggle that is this path we are on. Sometimes we are so focused that we don’t check in, are you going where you are supposed to be? We continue, sometimes because we are  not aware that we are going the wrong way and sometimes because our pride is telling is that it is to late to turn back now. There is no pride in living in a mistake, just like buying the wrong size shoe – you will find yourself uncomfortable, in pain and tripping all over the place. 

You are being turned around for a reason, usually it is because there is something better for you just around the bend. Let go of your stubbornness to white knuckle hold on to what isn’t for you and allow for something to come into your life that will actually fulfill you. You can fight it all you want, if it is meant for you to be somewhere, it will find a way for you to be there. So just like the illustration, allow yourself the opportunity to discover that you may be diving into something better even when you though what you already had was great. 

It is going to be hard, to change course especially when you had your sails pointed in a different direction.  Whether it be love, career or personal – we have the ability to welcome the chance at true happiness. Most times our pride won’t allow us to admit that there are needs in our lives that aren’t being met. We don’t want to appear to be weak or wrong in front of others. But those that are close to us and know, they are trying to get you to see how splendid your life could be if you allowed the changes to occur, in essence they are rooting for you. They see your pain, they see your frustration and they want to see your soar above it all.

The change in direction should not be halted due to fear, fear is a liar. Don’t allow the alterations tell you that you aren’t prepared, that you can’t deal with it. If you are meant to shift gears please know that life has been preparing you for just that. Love yourself enough to agree to welcome something better in your life because you deserve better – because you are worthy. Critics beat us down enough, be your own encourager! Don’t fear that life has presented you with certain challenges, it is all designed to get you to your destination. If anything, fear a life that has wasted an opportunity at try self-actualization – it is a shame to misuse the bounty that life has prepared for you just because you are afraid.

Slowly let your guard down, test the waters (just a toe at a time) and consent to the redirection that life has for you. You are deserving! Big Hug!

  1. Great, great post. Learning to accept what life has in store for you, and to not let fear or rigidity dictate your life is an extremely important lesson to be learned……and that lesson, ironically, is one that can be easily brushed aside as a result of the aforementioned stubbornness.
