There Is No "Right Path"

THINGS DO NOT HAVE TO CHANGE IN ORDER FOR YOU TO BE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE.  ABRAHAM HICKS

I heard a woman on a local radio station share something that I’ve heard before:

“I am going through a divorce.The only reason I am sharing this publicly is because if I can help just one person, that’s worth it. My advice to you is that if you have doubts that you can feel in your toes – listen to them. I knew before I got married that it wasn’t the right decision. I let the whirlwind of the whole idea and my mental justifications lead me to do something I knew deep down I shouldn’t have done.”

Almost immediately, listeners phoned in and sent Facebook messages to this radio broadcaster saying how they had done the same thing – that they knew and they did it anyway and they only stayed out of fear of what would happen otherwise.

It got me thinking: why do so many of us not listen to ourselves? And because my mind is dangerously fixed on self-improvement sometimes, I also thought: “Am I doing this now in my own relationship?”

But here’s what I realized – there is no such thing as bad timing, bad decisions, right path vs. wrong path.

Every decision is our decision and every choice we make is the one that will take us where we are supposed to go.

So I stayed in a relationship longer than I knew deep down I should have, but had it ended sooner I wouldn’t be with who I am now. So I stayed in a job that made me miserable, but it paid the bills and for that I am thankful.

It is time to stop beating ourselves up. Everything right now is EXACTLY perfect. Even if you are angry, sad, unable to stop crying, that is exactly perfect. Feel it, all of it.

And then, if and when it feels right – give it up.

You will know.
