Have you ever asked yourself this question :

” What will I be doing in one year?  five years? ” 

My answer?

Question mark

I have NO idea.  I don’t want to know.

If you are like me you are constantly thinking about what will come next, what the plan for the future is, and what you are working towards achieving.

It gets exhausting, doesn’t it? 

It almost takes a conscious effort to NOT think about that stuff all the time.

Don’t get me wrong, having a vision for your life that guides you is a wonderful thing, but when you are too busy thinking about what comes next to enjoy what is happening now, it can bog you down.

I found myself in that place.  So caught up in what I was working towards and where I was going, that I couldn’t enjoy where I actually was.

How did I know I was in the place?

Apathy.  Complete and total apathy.

I have always been someone who didn’t shy away from hard work.  That has never scared me.   Yet, I would decide on something I really wanted to do (a business idea, applying for a job) and then when I would think about it, it just sounded like too much effort, too much time, too much work.

That just isn’t me.

It caused me to really sit and listen to what my intuition (or “inner pilot light” as Lissa Rankin M.D. would call it) was telling me, or screaming at me rather.

I need to just be quiet, my mind at least.  Getting quiet in this house with my two boys is virtually impossible, but a theoretical type of quiet…

Time for some space, white noise, silence, quiet.

Then, the rest will unfold.

If we allow ourselves some inner quiet, wont that allow our true path to reveal itself?
