You’re Doing It Right.

In case you were wondering, you’re doing it right.

You’re in the perfect place at the perfect time doing the perfect thing.

You’re exactly where you should be, even if it doesn’t look the way you thought it would. {Tweet It}

Your timing is perfect and elegant and everything is unfolding as it should, even if it didn’t turn out the way you thought it would.

There is no grand master plan for your life that you can screw up by making the wrong decision or missing an opportunity.

What is for you cannot pass by you. May that be salve to your ever anxious soul.

You may feel invisible right now. Trust that your invisibility is exactly the incubation you need to burst forth in a flurry of light when the time is right.

You may feel like you missed the boat. Take heart. If you missed it, it wasn’t your boat.

You may feel like you’re too late or too early. Not possible. You’re only ever on time as far as your destiny goes.

Yeah, there are a few things you wished you’d done differently. But if you had, you wouldn’t have right now, your current reality. And even if right now isn’t what you wanted, it’s leading you somewhere that you do want. You can trust that.

There isn’t a wrong choice. There’s just the choice you make.

There are an infinite number of ways your life could go. The one you choose is the right one. {Tweet It}

You can’t screw it up. You can’t ruin your life. You can only live it.

So, rest easy and know: you’re doing it right.

 

OVER TO YOU:

Do you ever feel you aren’t on the right path? Do you lose sleep over getting it “right”? Whether you’ve experienced a shift in this thinking or not, I’d love to hear from you in the comments!

Who do you want to be?

WHO DO YOU WANT TO BE_Email

“I’m just surprised by the kind of mother I am,” I said. My sweet therapist nodded as she listened with compassion. I went on to tell her how I had assumed I would be the kind of mother my mother was. She was my primary role model for mothering, after all. I thought I wouldn’t…

It’s not luck. It’s choice.

MARCH 2_NEWSLETTER

When we exclaim how lucky someone is, there’s a lot of backstory we’re ignoring. We all know people who have all the privilege and blessings in the world who haven’t made much of them. We all know people whose backgrounds make our stomach turn but who have managed to create beautiful, meaningful, wholehearted lives. Call…

The Infinite Possibilities in Saying “I Do”

I used to think that freedom meant boundlessness. I used to think it was like looking at a vast horizon with every possibility in the world. I used to think freedom meant the ability to choose literally anything at anytime… and to change my mind at the float of a feather. I’m about to make…

Somebody wants what you have.

Right now, someone in the world envies you. They admire your business. They covet your wardrobe. They lust after your husband. To someone somewhere you look like you have it all. Your website makes their mouth water. Your pictures on Facebook make them yearn for adventure in their life. Seeing you makes them crave more….

The six letter word to banish from your vocabulary.

I don’t believe in regret. Yes, we have infinite choices and infinite possibilities in life. Yes the world is our oyster. Yes, in this exact moment there are myriad versions of how my life could turn out based on what I decide to do in the next 30 seconds. And yet, there is no such…

Just get on the train (or the freedom of commitment.)

“The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating – in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life.”…
