The crosswalk:

How excited we were when we began the situations we found ourselves stuck in. We are now at the crosswalk. We press the button and wait for the light to change to give us the option to step forward to cross over. As we wait we feel restless. We know that the light says to stay put but there is energy inside us now that wants to plunge forward.

We are standing in place with one foot wanting to go forward and one foot keeping us from stepping into traffic. We know if we stepped now we would be hit by the oncoming vehicles as we have learned that it’s unsafe. With that lesson we know the right time to move forward is when the light changes. The knowledge of this means we now can cross with confidence that we will arrive safely to the other side. To the place we have planned to be.

In life we are given lessons and we can’t move to our destiny when we are stuck to people, places or things that are holding us back from our dreams. We must stop trying to drag those with us. Pulling things along can hold us back or at least steal all of our energy from pushing forward.

Something has to end to have a new beginning. It’s up to us and we can move forward into our dreams. Only we can make that happen. We must do what we need to and allow ourselves to release and open up to receive the gifts that have been waiting for us.  It’s never to late to achieve what we’ve always known we could have. We must strive towards what we deserve and let go of what we didn’t deserve. We need to complete painful chapters in our life and  turn towards our new beginning with faith.

The gift of clarity is within us and it is up to all of us to accept it and reach for whats before us. Taking what we’ve learned from our past and applying that knowledge in our future prepares us to remain grounded in our purpose. This keeps us from turning back as we already know what is there.  Everything happened for a reason.  Fear can hold us back and faith will take us forward.

We have options once we let things go that are no longer serving us.  We can take our benevolence and should leave anything malevolent alone. Wasting all the good inside of us on people and things that don’t deserve us can deplete our energy. Reasoning with the unreasonable is a waste of time.  We can head onward with the faith and hope we have always carried within our soul.

If we are second guessing our past then we are being told to turn and now head towards our future. We can lead ourselves with the light that’s inside us and has been there all along. Our truth has been there and letting that truth out sets us free to move.  We then can push ourselves in the direction the light is shown and away from the darkness that is just FEAR.

No longer sleep-walking we are now awake and able to see our dreams within reach. To go backwards is to repeat the lessons. We can swim towards our new life with ease or may drown with  the what if’s. If people can’t make their mind up about us and have to think about whether we are valued, then we are being shown to move away from them. They don’t deserve us right now as they are having their own lessons to learn.

We must not let our judgment be clouded.  We can move away with grace and allow them to live out their own lessons in life.  We can pray they will eventually see their own light. The lessons from our past have given us the abilities and skills to make a change and hopefully in their own time they will too.

We  can now see through the fog that we were blinded by at that time. We can drop the baggage now or we will sift through it and continue to look for what we desire. We can unpack our bags and refill them with new memories.  We must trust that once we let go of all that held us back.  We will have new possibilities coming towards us as we are now creating space for new experiences.  Moving forward , we will only look back as a reminder of the lessons we needed to get us to where we have always wanted to be.

We shouldn’t base our decisions on feelings we originally had with a person, place or thing.  We were learning lessons through those experiences  and how it made us feel when we were in that place.  We can now plant that foot that’s been hanging over the edge towards our past in front of us.  Let’s step forward as the light is changing.

Our growth was destined as we needed to know and show our self-worth. Leaving behind those or things that aren’t changing is part of this lesson as hard as it may be. Change can’t happen unless someone makes a move. At some point we are forced to move if something is going to change. Doing what is best for yourself and others can sometimes feel painful. Faith will lead everyone to the place they need to be when they are ready and willing.

You can’t wait on others or teach them. You may be to close to the situation and they will need to learn from someone or something else. It’s time to be honest and make the decision you know is the right one. Will you stay and repeat the lessons again or move forward?

We can move into our power and stop giving it away. Deep down we knew what our truth has been and we just allowed confusion to keep us stuck.  It’s time, what will you choose?

Stop, look and listen. The light says walk. Will you cross forward now or stand alone as others go forward or will you turn back and repeat the lessons? Allow yourself to grow and give your past the chance. This isn’t abandoning yourself or the past,  as a mother bird even has to kick her baby out of the nest to fly.

This is my goodbye to this moment in time as I take that step towards Hello.

What will you choose to do?

 

Until next time, this is my truth.

Jennifer
