It’s easy to resist. It’s easy to get distracted. Why is it difficult to simply let go and allow ourselves the peace and happiness that we deserve? A lot of it is all in our head. Our mind has something like 60,000 thoughts a day, and 99% are the same ones we had the day before. When I first heard that, I was amazed. That means that unless we make new choices, we will continue to live our lives on autopilot. Unless we think new thoughts aligned with our best versions, we will continue on the same track of our current reality. And for some, their current reality is exactly where they want to be. But, for many, we see a vision filled with more love, abundance, and purpose. I have found that the change must come from within before we can see it in our outer world.
Scheduling your time can also help to stop resisting your calling. I don’t know about you, but I dislike schedules, yet I know that they are helpful to me. They help me to feel more organized and more on-point. Once you have your priorities down, then you can see when you have “free” time. Why not prioritize yourself? Why not make room for the experiences and relationships that bring you joy? I am committing to purposefully scheduling time for the things that I love to do, such as exercising and journaling. What’s something, big or small, that you could commit to doing that your future self will thank you for?
Beginning is another way to stop resisting. They say that getting started is the hardest step, and they are so right. But take the small step anyway. Even if you don’t know where it will lead, trust your intuition, and keep going. The right people and events will show up for you in perfect timing. You will feel in flow. What’s the first step that you can take?
I think the easiest and hardest way to stop resisting your calling, your truth, is to just let go. Let go of the distractions. Let go of the negative self talk. Let go of all that no longer serves you and fits into your dream life. Letting go can feel so difficult as most of us don’t want to give up the control, but it can also be so rewarding. Tonight, I allowed myself to be distracted, and then I finally told myself to commit to writing tonight. And as I write, I feel focused and in sync. What do you need to let go of to align to your calling? Do you trust that letting go can make space for greater experiences?
And if you are reading this and wondering how to find your calling, it will find you. That will be another conversation. I look forward to hearing your experiences. What tips can you offer?
