This week I wanted to share with you some thoughts I’ve had about life, and what it really means to trust the timing of it. Over time, I’ve allowed myself to hold the vision of what I desire, but lose patience and belief that things could actually work out for me. I used to think that life really wouldn’t ever provide for me what I really wanted for myself. I was so untrusting of myself and my path, that I felt like I always had to intervene to try and force my desires to come to life.
With this underlying belief, I would settle for things that were just “close enough” to what I wanted, which subsequently led me to feeling deeply unfulfilled and unhappy in my life and my choices.
Picking people, places, and things that were “almost” good enough built up a deep belief that I wasn’t worthy of the best. Settling for what was less than I desired, signaled to the world that I didn’t care enough to keep seeking for what was true and real. Despite my frustration and sadness for how things in my life were unfolding, I didn’t truly realize that so much of my pain and sadness was self-inflicted because of my choices and not allowing myself to wait for my life’s real blessings.
When I shifted my mindset to not settling, I started editing my choices, and honoring what I truly wanted. I may not have all the things that I want in life just yet, but I feel satisfied and happy along the way, and that has made all the difference.
What I wish to share with you today is a gentle reminder that your dreams and desires are worthy of you waiting for your blessings. You don’t have to settle for the things that are close enough. You deserve the prize.
Here’s to no longer settling and sticking to your standards. Remember, it’s better to wait for high quality people and experiences then to settle for what isn’t meant for you.
