It has been almost a year since I left Australia to come to Mexico.
Last night I was reading through my old journal entries from the time that I was about to leave, and I remembered how I was feeling.
I was very scared! I was stepping into the unknown.
I had all the fears about it not “working out”, things going wrong.
But I was also excited because I had made a commitment to live a life that is true to myself.
Life responded to that commitment by delivering some of the most incredible experiences.
There’s still a lot of uncertainty in my life. But if you want your life to change and make your dreams a reality, you have to take a leap of faith.
It’s the only way.
The number one human need is the need for certainty. But we can’t always know how things are going to turn out.Anything can happen regardless of whether you go after your dreams or live a safe life.
If there is too much certainty we can miss out on all of the beautiful surprises that we get from taking a risk, going out of our comfort zone and pushing our limits.
We just don’t get all that stuff when we play it safe.
We need to trust in our intuition.
Sometimes your intuition will point to the most logical decision.
Other times it will be anything but logical.
And maybe what seems like the logical decision might just be your mind trying to keep you safe.
Because it does take courage to step out of your comfort zone in a big way.
But when you can say with your hand on your heart that you are honestly living a life that is true to yourself, it’s the BEST feeling!
Most people don’t give their dreams a chance, and they can only wonder what could have been.
Don’t let that be you.
If you’ve been thinking about making a change in your life, and it’s your dream, and it’s what your heart truly wants, then take a leap of faith and just give it a try.
