Is your life waiting for you?
I first heard those words yesterday and I had to close my eyes and ‘sit’ with those words as I felt them ripple through my body. A clear indication for me that they resonated deeply within. They describe so accurately and beautifully exactly what I felt when I began to purposefully release what I thought my life should look like for the life that was waiting for me. After Connor’s diagnosis with autism, I tried so hard to hold onto what I had dreamed for my life, what my darling husband and I had dreamed of for our life together and for our family. Autism did not have a place in our dreams….. or so I thought. Today, I cannot imagine being the woman, wife and mother I am today if it hadn’t been for autism and all three of our children.
Sometimes we hold onto a dream for our life even when it becomes increasingly difficult for us to live life. We hold on so tightly we cannot lift our heads long enough to see what is waiting for us if we would simply loosen our grip on our dream that has not come to fruition. When you begin to struggle to hold together what you believe should be happening, find any way to lift your head to see if there is something else calling to you. Life should not be about struggle and the magnificent life we are wanting is simply waiting for us, the last holdouts, to show up for the party.
