All that said. I have people in my life who are now moving forward. I am so excited and happy for them. But I'm not gonna lie, it's hard. The shoe is on the other foot. Yes I am being supportive, yes I am being encouraging, but then I think inside..."What about me?" I'm realizing the level of faith and believing I called upon to make it through my own move, is what i am calling on to make it through their move(s). I have to believe not only that this is good for them, but that I will be okay and that it is somehow good for me too. In writing it, it seems self centered... whaaaa what about me. But in all honesty when things are good I like them to stay that way. So now I choose the same faith and belief. And voila, that gets the focus off of me, (worry) and back on them (adventure) and I find myself letting go and trusting that this change is good all the way around and it is. I see now why people have a hard time encouraging others to move forward when the "moving forward" affects them in a hard way. Encouraging and blessing others isn't always that easy. Sometimes it takes good self talk and putting aside my own fear. Ouch.. I said it... now I can continue to move forward and bless others... very aware of the vicious cycle of fear and adventure and the self talk that goes with it.
Make it a great day!!
