LET BEAUTY BE YOUR GUIDE
How much more enjoyable is life when you lift the pressure of having a specific destination in mind and just follow the most beautiful path? So much more. But that’s not the easiest thing to do (at least for me, it’s not).
As someone with an achieving mindset and lofty goals it can be so hard to let go of expectations and follow your heart. It’s scary, what if the most beautiful path doesn’t lead to the destination you want? But I can honestly say that the best things in my life have come from turning off my brain, listening my intuition and following something that felt beautiful in the moment.
A CHALLENGE FOR YOU (AND ME)
For the rest of the summer, let’s vow to stop overthinking and trust in taking the most beautiful path.
For me that means soaking up every bit of warm weather that I can, choosing activities that make Will (my 2-yr-old) sing and dance, and choosing to have faith that life will only get better once baby no. 2 comes in less than two months.
What does taking the most beautiful path mean to you this summer?
NEED A DAILY REMINDER?
Is focusing on the destination your default?
There are many things you can experiment with to break the habit. Meditation, journaling, daily gratitude, etc. I can’t say what’s right for you, but I can help you with a daily visual reminder.
I’ve set this flower wallpaper on my desktop to serve as a visual cue and keep my mindset in check.
