its-about-choosing-the-life-that-is-yours (1)

it’s tempting i admit (mostly to myself) to choose the lesser life. i notice myself telling stories about how i am satisfied (or okay) when the truth is i am terrified that what i want will not be possible (for me). some days i wake with life surging through every last ounce of me. but it’s not uncommon to find myself dragging (a little) as i own that this, this is no longer what i want, not for me, not with any kind of regularity. transition is confronting (for me), a girl who loves familiarity, a woman who has had the same morning ritual for years, eats the same lunch daily and has used the same products since she was 15. i find great comfort in things staying the same. i almost never crave variety (just for the sake of it, different tends to equal anxiety for people like me). but as it becomes clear that a shift is near, i am reminded (again) to choose the life that has me lit from the inside, that has me breathing fire effortlessly, that has me salivating (almost embarrassingly). this is how i know i chose well, this is how i know i chose well for me. it isn’t about getting more energy from chemical aids or setting goals so we know where we’re going always. it’s about choosing the life that has us energized and inspired (sincerely). it’s about choosing the life that is yours (yes yours). i hope you hear me (i hope i hear me). may you choose you. and may you live the life that is yours too…
