I’ve been given the opportunities to work with some really awesome spiritual warriors, my most favorable being my Grammy. I’m 22 years old and I know I’m on a journey. I feel a pull and tug between conforming and branching free. I often times wonder what I should be doing next to jump start me on a lifetime of learning and spreading spiritual joy and healing. There are two problems I have. One is that I want all of the answers now. Two is that I struggle with my ability to actually make a career out of my passion. If anyone was telling me this I would automatically think two thoughts; you don’t need all of the answers now, just your willingness to have them shows your passion towards your dream, and secondly, dream BIG because you can do it and you’re worth doing what you love.
Why can I clearly understand these perspectives if it’s coming from others, but when it’s coming from myself I get fears of failure and the inability to wholeheartedly commit? I have a theory that seemed to help me get where this stuff is coming from. I’m 22 and in graduate school, I’m being pulled into societal norms of success defined by net worth and employment status.
In my heart, I’m 22 and realizing that there is far, far more to life than what we’ve been told. I’m excited and I want to explore it. I LOVE learning from people, hearing their stories, and feeling connected. It is so obvious to me that my passion derives from my complete love of spiritual connection and growth. My point is that maybe someone else out there is in the same position, of feeling bogged down by what you’ve always been told to be normal and confused by how to apply your intuition to your daily life. I don’t have an answer yet of why or how to push through these feelings that is uniquely successful to me. I’m working on it, every day. I just wanted to write this to say to anyone out there that we’re in this together.
