It turns out that the key to happiness is very simple.
But it’s not easy.
I’m going through a period of huge transformation, and it’s really tough. I have been stumbling along the way, but with the best support team in place, I have felt encouraged.
I saw this quote somewhere and resonated deeply with it.
Letting go is a huge challenge for most of us. Letting go of toxic people, limiting beliefs, and situations that no longer serve you, all have the great potential to make room for what you desire most in your life.
I had to let go of my job in non-profit so I could:
- Empower people to love their bodies and find deep self-love;
- Teach kids about civic and social responsibility through art;
- Use improv to help children become better citizens;
- Partner with people to help them achieve transformation through an exploration of their values and deepest desires;
- Encourage people to become more self-confident through facilitated improvisation games; and
- Be a mother.
As far as I know, this is what I am meant to do in the world. I know that when I finally made the decision to leave, opportunities began coming my way out of seemingly nowhere.
What I know to be true is that it took me letting go of what was gone, to be ready for what was to come next. And I was grateful for what remained when I left my job: great memories, new tools and skills, and amazing friendships!
There’s no big secret here–I simply made space for all the things I longed for.
And now I look forward to what else is coming next. Whether it’s a lesson I need to learn, meeting a big goal, or stopping to celebrate my successes, it’s all possible because I let go.
Please don’t get me wrong. I am working hard for this. To whom much is given, much is required. But my Black ass is in alignment with Universe!
No time for dress rehearsals, folks. This is it. And remember, tomorrow is not promised to any of us.
This journey requires a bit of courage, a lot of commitment, and the right support.
Never give up!
