"As you start out on the way, the way appears" Rumi

Updated: Jan 8, 2019

Sometimes, I feel like my (and all of my girlfriend's haha) entire life is made up of times of transition and crossroads. This is probably becuase it is *lol*. Our mind makes us believe that we want to reach the destination. But let us be honest: once we do, this will most probably be the end of our journey. So let us try to enjoy the in-between, the ride, the trip.


But how? These times of uncertainty, self doubt, and fogginess tend to make us feel bad about ourselves, our lives, and decisions. When you do not know where you are going or what you really want, it just does not feel good.


The good news is though that you do not have to have it all figured out before you start.

We want to control every step of the way. If we cannot, we do not start walking. But this is not how the universe works. It needs you to commit and put in a decent amount of faith before it is going to start showing you that you are on the right path.


And faith would not be faith if it was not going to be tested, right? So just committ to a decision and stick to it for a while. See how the ups and downs (stick through a few downs before you let go of the idea, the relationship or whatever if may be ;)) that follow it make you feel – overall. Do things start to get into a flow? Do you feel more at peace; even in the middle of chaos? Despite financial struggles? These may be signs to keep on doing what you are doing and letting the journey unfold itself as you venture out on it. I think it was in the BIG MAGIC by Elizabeth Gilbert – a must read for anyone wanting to live a creative life and be inspired and same person who wrote Eat, Pray, Love ;)) – that she quotes a blogger saying: "The all-important question is: what flavor of shit sandwich would you like to eat? Because here’s the sticky little truth about life that they don’t tell you at high school pep rallies:


"Everything sucks, some of the time."

Give it some thought ;) Much love,
