I had to face this question for myself this week. I mean, as much as I have brought forth from inside of me into the world, there’s more dream to be birthed, and the time is now.

Have you done that at some time in your life? You start gaining momentum, you decide to give it a go, and you step out a little and then a little more, and then you start playing it safe, and you settle in, until you bump up against your dissatisfaction again and realize you are falling back in to living by default.

headincloudsI promised myself several years ago after some big 2×4 upside the head ahas that I would never live by default again. For those of you who don’t know my story, I had a spiritual and personal growth awakening very early in life, in my 20s, and I left bad jobs and a toxic marriage and all kinds of things that were not good for me and not serving me at all, and I created my life anew. And then I started to play it safe and settle in, and before I knew it, I was sick with an undiagnosed illness that lasted for 7 years, struggling in my marriage and with my children and my family, not loving what I had to go out into the world and do every day, and neck deep in a life that I didn’t love.

And so I stepped out again and vowed never to take myself back into that place.

This week, I’ve been in Atlanta attending an event for my personal growth and the growth of my business, and I bumped up against all the places I have been playing it safe, settling in, and my dissatisfaction and pain rose up to meet me in the mirror, every morning.

What I love about this is that throughout each day I have been here, I have been gifted with what I call Divine Appointments, those moments when you meet someone you are meant to meet purely by “accident,” you sit next to them during the event or decide to have lunch with them, or strike up a conversation waiting for the elevator. I have had more of those Divine Appointments this week than I normally have attending an event like this. And that is validation from the Universe telling me, you want to be this, do this and have this, just ask and it is given, and here’s the thing, you have to make the first move. Everything that has been on my list holding me back showed up as opportunity in my world this week not just for my one best next step but for a handful of steps I need to take to get to where I have been telling the Universe I want to go. Now, I just have to take them.

This is how it works, right?

I have the pieces, the breadcrumbs have been spread out before me, and now it’s up to me to take the first step, and then the next one and the next one as far as I am willing to go.

That’s another thing that I talk about with my clients and students that got hammered home this week, and it’s an important thing for you to take some time to reflect on if you don’t have everything you want in this moment.

What are you willing to do to have what you want? What are you willing to do right now?

I’ve got the entire Thanksgiving break we’re about to be on here in the United States that I am going to have a lot of time spent in the car and at my parents’ house to reflect on just this, and it’s going to require getting real with myself.

What are you dreaming about and desiring that you are ready to bring out of your head and into the world? And not just ready. What are you dreaming about and desiring that you are willing to bring out of your head and into the world? That’s what it all comes down to.

I have had the immense pleasure over the past few months of watching some of my clients and students really doing this, and it’s amazing. It’s inspires me to be more, do more and have more. And, in turn, I am called to call you and inspire you.

Could reading this be a Divine Appointment set up for you today? Is this showing you an opportunity you have been asking for? Maybe this is the exact breadcrumb showing up for you to follow.

You get to choose, and you get to decide. That’s how it works.

While I was here, I made this video, and I want to share it with you. What Is Stopping You From Getting Your Dream Out of Your Head and Into the World?
