“The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it but that out aim is too low and we reach it”
June is often the time of graduation, whether it is high school, college or beyond for family and friends. Maybe this is a pivotal point in your life/career. A number of times throughout our lives, we evaluate where we are, if and where we want to go and set our goals and ambitions. We also jump to society-based conclusions about how we FEEL we are doing and compare ourselves to others. Does that sound familiar?
The most insightful and beautiful piece here that we often miss completely, is checking in with “who” we really are at the core. Isn’t that all that really matters when making big decisions? Did you hear that? Stop comparing yourself and do a gut-check. This is the time to check-in with our divine guides, angels, the universe, etc. When you talk to God, Buddha, your guardian angel or whoever you turn to… are you really listening to their response? Or are you too focused on your situation to even pause and reflect? Your answers can come in a variety of ways: repetitive messages from people/places (from people you know or strangers), lyrics in a song, words in a book/movie, repeating angel numbers… or just a grounded knowing.
You do not need to wait for someone to give you permission to follow your dreams. You will be waiting a long time. Just decide what you really want, and go for it with gusto. Trust your feelings of confidence and passion. Drop your fears and take action. You will never regret it.
