It seems that I have a solid handful of friends that are "in transition" at the moment. Most of us are chalking it up to "saturn returns", and can't seem to figure out what the fuck we're doing. Saturn returns just somehow makes us feel better that we're not the only ones to go through it. Right? We aren't... right guys? Anyone else feeling like their late 20s is turning everything they thought they knew upside down (in the best, most awe-inspiring and terrifying way possible)?
We all seem to be hitting a point where climbing the corporate ladder simply isn't enough. While the money is great, the life is mundane. We don't want to be our bosses. THAT'S HUGE. (Although, gah I really love my bosses). Take a peak up that ladder you're on. Is that where you want to be? If the answer is no, change it. You're in control.
And while it's fine and dandy to strive for work work-life balance, I challenge you to dig a little deeper into what that means. I tend to think it's bullshit. What we should really be reaching towards is work-life integration. We should be moving, living, breathing, and creating from a place of inspiration. We are here to exist in a constant state of unlimited potential. Because that's really what we have... unlimited potential. All you have to do is believe it.
I'm writing this as a plea not only to you, but mostly to me. You know this whole throwing-my-heart-to-the-internet-for-the-world-to-see thing is therapeutic in a strange way. It's like I'm daring myself to say YES, and in the process opening space for you to do the same. Because when I do, you do and that one little ripple in this big ass pond will not only change our lives but the lives of those around us. Let's make waves my friends. The world needs waves of people who are fully living, engaged, and alive.
The truth is you can literally do anything you want with your life. This is your time, your body, your reality. Be intentional about how you use it. Find what lights you up. GET MORE OF THAT. Be in and around it as much as you possibly can. Allow yourself to drop into the flow, and believe that the universe will open up in your favor. Because the truth is, when you are fully aligned in your life the opportunities come your way, the road blocks fall off the path, and your wildest dreams start to appear in your reality.
Say YES and align. At that point, it's just a hustle and flow my friends.
... a hustle and mother f***ing flow.
