As I walked this morning I was reminded that it’s OK to change direction. I was headed over to check out a new neighborhood market and as I crossed the street in that direction, I heard a voice saying “That’s not where my energy is today.” So I gave myself permission to change direction. Instead of heading to the market I chose a nature path and was rewarded with numerous wildflower sightings, a chorus of birds singing and a glimpses of the nearby river. It was a very tangible reminder that it’s OK to change direction. Sometimes, it’s imperative that we change direction. If you are working 80 hours a week instead of the 60 hours you committed to, change direction. If you are in a relationship that is stalled out, change direction. If you are in a job that is energy draining rather than energy giving, change direction. If you are not on your right path, change direction. If you are bored with your exercise program, change direction. If you are wondering “is this all there is?” change direction. If your life is not bringing you joy, change direction. If you are no longer feeling challenged in your job, change direction. Sometimes all we need to do is look at things from a different perspective or through a new set of glasses and then we can give ourselves permission to change direction.
What about you? What are you tolerating in your life? In what area of your life do you need to change direction? What is the decision you have been avoiding? What are you settling for? How can you be more flexible and less rigid? How can you give yourself permission to change direction today?
