So I haven’t written in a while because I had to work through a few things recently. Seasons of change in your life is always a little bit daunting, but exciting at the same time.
As of recently I am no longer studying to become a Dietitian. I had to make a choice that is altering everything I do. Like you, I had a dream, but not one that involved being a Dietitian. It wasn’t an easy decision, because I had to decide to give up what I thought was the dream for my life.
I was forced into a season of rest and trust me it was and is still no walk in the park. Throughout my years of studies and working hard I didn’t give myself space for growth and I forgot what it felt like to have a life. One that is filled with things that I actually really love and want to do. I realized that the rest was a way for me to identify what was missing in my life. I had lost my true happiness along the way.
I talk about self-worth a lot but it’s because it’s so important to know who you are and what you are able to give to others. How do you expect people to see who you are if you don’t know who you are yourself.
Believe in yourself, you will probably make mistakes, you’ll get hurt, and you’ll get up again. That’s life… If we keep on doing things that keep us in our comfort zones, where are we expecting to grow?
You need to step outside your safe box. Set goals to do things you’ve always wanted to, but were too afraid to do. Then do them, worst case scenario you won’t like it and that’s it. I’m using this as motivation for myself too. I have found myself in a situation that I have to put aside my fears and failures of the past and look into the future expecting the best and not the worst.
Why is it that we build up these walls? By doing this we completely stop ourselves from growing, experiencing and learning. Take that chance, and make a choice on something that scares you, you never know what you’ll get on the other side of your decision. It may just be extraordinary💙💙
