Gratitude 7 – Time Out

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you’ve imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

-Henry David Thoreau

Sometimes, without even knowing it, we tend to overload our lives with so much to do, that we get lost on our way to where we are going. If we dont realise this we get so far off track that we dont remember where it was we were actually heading. By the time we realise, we have no idea where we are, or how long we have been off track for.

Sometimes the course of our journey is changed by forces out of our control. Regardless of how we got there, sometimes we need to take some time out to get back on track.

I have found that time out is one of the most powerful tools to help us reset our journey. By stepping away we get to remind ourselves of what is important. Once we know whats important we can reset our priorities. Once we have our priorities we can remap our journey.

Lately i have been through a HUGE amount of change, and the next 6 months will be no different. Although i am still focused and know exactly where i am going, the path has become muddled and full of hurdles and unecceassary clutter.

Referring to these situations and different focuses as clutter does not detract from the importance that they have had, or do have, in my life. It is just a situtation that takes away from my long term focus, which in turn, doesnt allow me to be completely focused on the journey or the destination.

Currently i am in mental time out from the situations and am making some of the hardest choices i have had to make. In the process i will be leaving behind things that have been a big part of my life for a long time. By no means does this mean that these things are no longer important to me, it just means that they need to be left behind to give me the room to focus on getting to where i need to be.

So the next 6 months will bring HUGE amounts of change, but as i have mentioned in my last few days of gratitude, i have some amazing tools and even more amazing people in my life to help me stay on track. ALOT is gonna change and alot will be left behind but what will eventuate is going to be amazing.

Of THAT, i am sure.

The journey and the destination
