Deciding to change your life is no small feat. It’s hard, complicated, messy, and rarely involves your voice alone.. And yet, you feel it- something tugging at you. You catch yourself wondering what things would be like if you did this or that- if you would have made this decision over that decision.. You catch yourself wondering if there’s more out there and if it’s accessible to you with everything you have going on in your life.

You’ve been “out of flow” and have felt dissonant for a while, but you’ve kept pushing because ish still needs to get handled. You stopped “dreaming” and started living in a smaller sense of ‘realism’ for your current circumstances. And yet, you know that something is gnawing at you. You know that you could be more, do more, and have more if this-this-and-this would just happen for you. You don’t necessarily despise your life, but given the opportunity to be or have more, you’re definitely hopping on that opportunity.

How would your life look if a genie guaranteed you success on whatever you wished you could do if given the opportunity? What would be the benefits of being able to fulfill that dream? What about the consequences of not fulfilling that dream?

I want you to try something. Think about you for a moment without thinking of how it will affect someone else. What do you want? What are your needs? What thoughts are yours and what thoughts are someone else’s? Which voice is yours and which is someone else’s? What things in your life need to change?

Do you have answers but are still wondering how to finally fly out of the cage that was never there to begin with? My short answer to you: baby steps, by making more and more choices that are in alignment with the vision that you have for your life, and by learning what’s your voice vs someone else’s.
