We are ever expanding beings. We change, we grow, we transform and things that used to work for us, don’t work anymore. Plans we made a year ago may not make sense for us anymore and its okay! We are here on this earth, in these bodies, to discover the unlimited amazing cosmic extent of who we are. We change all the time, every hour, every day. Of course there is one part of us that is always true, always the same, ever present, everlasting; but as we connect more deeply with that distinct inner part of ourselves our outward person will change! Our choices will change, our desires and needs will change. It’s okay!
Don’t fight it; don’t hide it, just revel in your desire for excitement and transformation. It is beautiful! Trust yourself, your core; you know what you need to do! You already know! Trust your instincts, trust yourself! If you are bored or miserable in a situation it is most likely because that situation does not agree with your spirit anymore. Maybe at some point it did. Maybe there was something to learn from the experience, relationship, job or living situation. If you are restless and unhappy day after day and pretending to be okay because you feel like you must stick with the choices you made previously… most likely you have already learned what your spirit needs from that circumstance. You have already expanded beyond it. Accept the fact that your expansion is beautiful and move forward!
Allow yourself to move on, to do what excites you! If you feel stuck someplace - you are not. You are never stuck.
You are always exactly where you put yourself - every day, every minute of your life is a manifestation of the choices you have made. Change your choices and you shift the course of your life. Choose what makes you happy now, right this minute and you create a happier future! Allow yourself to expand. Sometimes outgrowing something that once worked so well for you hurts like hell, but if it cannot grow with you, it is no longer meant for you!
Part of pursuing your art and your passion is taking on new challenges, new adventures and new projects. Very often to have room for new experiences that you love in your life, you have to let go of old situations that no longer work for you. It is part of the process. As you pursue the kind of life you want and begin to see positive changes; you will know that what you left behind in the process cannot compare to the joy of having the kind of life that is meant for you!

Following my restless traveling spirit wherever it may lead; making art, taking pictures and writing notes along the way.
