If your path or journey through life is smooth and linear, are you life-ing right?
A path without peaks, valleys, winding roads or without starts and stops that require you to pivot isn’t a life worth living.
Without the highs and lows, the lessons we learn about ourselves and others would not exist.
Linear paths speak of complacency, fear of the unknown and a lack of confidence in one’s self.
Indirect and crooked paths that require us to deviate from our projected paths solidify our mental fortitude and increase our stamina, self-confidence, and self-love.
So, don’t be ashamed that your journey took 6 years instead of 2.
Don’t be ashamed that your journey turned out to have a different destination than the destination you had in mind.
Don’t be ashamed about any of it.
Trust in the steps you’ve taken and the steps you are taking.
Trust that the end result is one filled with authenticity and that every turn, every pivot was made with care.
Trust in yourself. Trust in the YOU you are becoming and enjoy the path before you!
