Sometimes the doubt and fear of moving forward is so big it seems impossible to take a step. What step comes first?
In which direction should I move? Should I take a step now or wait?
How am I ever going to get to where I want to be?
What does your picture of “where you want to be” look like?
My picture has me showing up in a BIG way!
In my big picture I am a capable, organized, contributing, loved, respected member of the Fine Arts Jewelry and Healing communities.
In my picture I am balancing this with family time, friends and time to take care of me. Of course I am also rewarded for my contributions with financial health.
I don’t see the road ahead, I just see where I want to eventually end up.
I am troubled and confused when I look at how to get there, I question my abilities, I question my genius.
Yet when I let go of judgement, my heart knows it is right.
So I am struggling, doubting, fearful but also trusting the plan Tonya with Artful success has laid out for me. When I do my work in the artful success program, I catch glimpses and the doubt and fear fall away for a moment, just long enough for me to look up and see a path to travel. a path to help me get to where I want to go.
They are glimpses, they don’t seem to last long, but I am noticing they are happening more frequently.
Now when I am stuck not knowing how to take the next step, I remind myself of the glimpses I saw and one wobbling step at a time I am moving forward.
It might take me a while, growth takes time, but I am celebrating all my little steps along the way.
I am hoping some of you will choose to wobble alongside me, moving forward towards your own big picture.
