Do you ever beat yourself up for what you haven’t done, yet? Do you ever feel bad for the gifts, callings, visions, and ideas that are in you nagging to be birthed?
Today, I needed a reset. I stepped away from my computer with my journal and new gel pens and after a few brief words I found myself waking up. I’ve learned and experienced enough to know now that sometimes that is a way for us to clear energy and reset, and I love a good restorative nap. (It was less than 15 minutes.)
When I woke up, I felt new but not quite clear on my next steps for the day, so I decided to follow an urge to sit at my computer and just write freely, whatever came to mind. The following is what came to me. Not something I typically share, but I felt that it may resonate with a few and help you to let go of some things so you can move on with your life.

These words came to me intuitively….
“Time to FORGIVE YOURSELF. You did nothing wrong. You are on track. It’s ALL okay.
You’re under the false impression that you are pivoting because you were going the wrong way. No. You are pivoting because it is now time to change course.
It has nothing to do with you being wrong, doing it wrong, being in the wrong. You did what you were supposed to do THEN with the knowledge, focus, goals, priorities, etc. you had THEN. And NOW you have different knowledge, a different focus, different goals, and different priorities.
Stop making yourself wrong for choosing a new path. Stop making yourself wrong for revisiting and old path when you now have what it takes to walk it. Maybe you weren’t ready.. prepared to handle it then.
Maybe it’s time to look at yourself differently. Maybe it’s time to accept that you’re allowed to ebb and flow like everything else in this universe. That you’re not wrong for breaks and pauses or even perceived regressions.
Maybe YOU get to be human, too. Maybe you get to allow yourself the grace you offer to others. Maybe it’s time you forgive yourself for doing nothing wrong and allow yourself to see YOU as one who gets to change paths, too.
No one looks at a butterfly and says, “Stupid. Why were you a caterpillar all that time when you had the potential to be a butterfly? Duh. What a waste of time.”
The length of time that you are as you are is irrelevant. It’s time to embrace this present moment and say, “Okay so what do I want to do, now.”
