Life is challenging. At times it seems like a test - or perhaps a final exam.
It can feel like a culmination of your previous lessons where everything is on the line and every move you make is extremely important.
At these pivotal points - and sometimes in our regular daily active life - it can seem impossible to make it. Or perhaps not worth the trouble.
But these challenges are the exact things that we need to grow. As we master our smaller lessons, they get bigger and may seem impossible at times.
It's important to trust, especially when everything is on the line. Notice it always works out somehow. Check your faith and your "talk" or ideals. While you're at it, step more fully into it.
"Faith is being sure of what we hope for
and certain of what we do not see". ~ Hebrews 11:1
Although you can't always see how everything can work out, you often can see the next step to take.
There may be several options and it may be hard to choose, but with some due diligence, you can figure out which is best for you. Follow your heart and you'll know what's right for you. Make the space to get there (tune in) and find out. Don't be too busy minded and only consider what everyone else requests.
Many times you can't see beyond to the second step, you must just be fully present with what is up first. Be open to what is right for you, make your decisions, and go for it. Let go of the fear give it all you got.
As you step forward, the next step reveals itself. Sometimes you can more easily see how this is going to work itself out. As it always does...
And you can enjoy your growth *beyond the challenge*.
Just one step at a time... See how many you can have fun with while you're at it.
Keep on walking. Soon you'll look back and realize just how far you've traveled. :)
