As we listen more to our intuition, we come into conflict with the status quo and others’ expectations of who we are and what we should be doing. A natural consequence of aligning our own values and integrity is that we will inconvenience someone, including ourselves.
Creating a life of your own design, based on your known passion and sense of purpose, takes boldness, but the rewards of greater self-pride and just plain delight are worth it! Many of us have lost sight of our dreams, ideals, talents and passions in order to stay in survival mode, to support a family, or to live up to others’ expectations. This path has led us to feel restless and unsatisfied, even though perhaps all our material needs are taken care of.
You can expect life to get a little bit crazy as you explore and play with new beliefs, concepts and connections to form your new life based on your own values, passions and personal definition of your life’s purpose.
