Sometimes the things in life we think we're meant to do are simply not what we're meant for. And that's okay. That doesn't mean it won't be difficult. That doesn't mean you won't mourn the loss of moving through to a new path. However, it IS all part of the beautiful process that is creating yourself and becoming the truest YOU.
I've experience this now twice in my life. The second being most recent as in within the last two months with what's written below happening yesterday.
I felt it was important to share this here so that any who may have gone through something similar in the past (or currently) can consider these times not failure, but growth. While still painful, full of purpose.
Below is the letter I wrote to my community after realizing that my life's long dream of opening a dance studio for adults was not the path to my highest self. The owning/running of the business itself, that is. Because SOUL KNOWS my heart exploded in love every time I moved and created with the beautiful people I connected with in that space. It was the lifestyle that running this particular type of business created for me that was not in alignment with the self I was growing into.
I do not regret for a single moment taking the opportunity to realize this dream, no matter the outcome, as it's been one of the largest contributions to my personal evolution so far. I am grateful.
To my community, with love:
