Taking a step back.
Sometimes, in life, it is good to just take a step back. Take, for instance, the baggage claim area at any given airport. As soon as that belt starts rolling, people frantically squeeze in towards the belt as close as possible…making it impossible for themselves to accurately detect their own luggage and simultaneously blocking the way for all others who spotted their luggage from the back. If everyone just took a nice step back, the baggage claim would be less of a zoo providing everyone with accurate vision and enough room to take further steps into action.
The same principle applies for life, I have found. At times we all get wrapped up in a million different things at once. There’s work, there are hobbies, there are social obligations and finally somewhere buried underneath all of these things there are our dreams, our goals, our aspirations. Everyone has something they have always wanted to do, something they have always wanted to try, but as society proves us on a daily basis, there seems to never be enough time for any of that. So we just pretend to forget about it. But the thing with “dreams” and callings is that they never really go away. FORTUNATELY, they don’t! You will always hear that little voice inside of you reminding you that there is something more out there for you. However, humanity comes with free will so as far as the universe is concerned, you can choose to ignore your hopes and dreams for the entirety of your life and nothing will happen- except you will never feel completely happy and satisfied. You could blame everything on society and work and hence lack of time, but the bottom line is, you have to take a step back, re-evaluate everything you’re currently doing and simply MAKE the time. Whatever you need to drop from your regular “to-do” list in order to make room for your new adventure, DO IT!
It will be so worth it!
