Trusting the process when life feels confusing...

Life can often feel confusing...

As though we are lacking direction, things aren’t quite ‘right’ or we aren’t ‘enough’.

Sitting here and reflecting under this tree today, I’m reminded how easy it is to forget the small (and large) milestones that have taken place to lead us where we are today.

For example, I remember going to the library when I lived in a small coastal town called Torquay 3 years ago.

I had decided that it was time to embrace and nurture my own personal growth...

I was searching for all the books I could find that would help me step forward to embrace the best version of myself.

I was particularly sick of feeling anxious around social situations and I wanted to figure out why this kept coming up for me.

As I worked doing graphic design, I would also listen non-stop during the day to youtube videos (Tony Robbins especially)…

I think this was well before podcasts were popular, or maybe I was just behind the times.

All the stories and lessons I was reading and hearing made so much sense!

I put it all in to practice.

I called up for free coaching, I went to a phsychiatrist, I used hypnosis apps… I was thirsty!

Before long I started to become very passionate about the changes I was seeing and feeling in my life.

Yes I still had confusion,

yes I still felt anxious in social situations and had all the feelings that life involves...

but I was becoming more empowered and others were noticing a difference in me too.

To my surprise, I felt a desire within to share this with others…

Without questioning it I reached out to my housemate and my sister, together we started a little group at home.

It was called ‘Soul Sisters’

I typed up a booklet with questions, prompted by the things I was learning from these youtube videos.

We would sit on the lounge room floor and have tea and biscuits, fill out our booklets and chat about the things in our life we were struggling with, how we could empower ourselves and how we’d support each other in the process.

It’s funny to look back and realize this was WELL before I had an inkling that I’d like to do this as a career.

In fact I think it was around the same time as I started an Instagram account called ‘Create Live Grow’.

Which over the next three years became a blog and a business – who knew that would happen!

I still had PLENTY more confusion over the next three years..

PLENTY more questioning, plenty more learning, growing and plenty more doubting myself –

I still do!

However, as I share my online program today ’30 Days of Soul’ which has now touched thousands of ladies and I embark on the process of creating a book to share with others…

This memory has been a beautiful reminder that we don’t need to know ‘why’ we are doing something, or what the exact outcome will be.

By following the calling inside, taking one step at a time and trusting that the path is unfolding exactly as it is meant to…

We follow the calling of our soul and heart…

Which knows much better than our mind does.

It’s OK to wobble...

It's OK to try things and realise they weren’t quite right...

It's OK to experience pain and make mistakes…

in fact it’s vital…

I’ve done a lot of that.

We become who we are because of the tiny steps we take along the way.

Sometimes simply the joy of doing and experiencing is enough
