I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how something inside me has completely changed. I used to be entirely pessimistic—I never had dreams, and if you would have said to me, “Just believe, and it will come true,” I’d have told you you’re crazy.
But now, I’m different—I actually believe that whatever I want for myself will come true, just like The Big Leap says it will.
There is also wisdom out in the world that says that you can’t dream of things that aren’t possible for you, and I’m totally buying into it.
I believe this because I’ve finally learned to see that what actually feels like my zone of genius is what others really struggle with, and contrary to what I used to believe, I see that work doesn’t have to feel hard, and actually, if you’re doing it right, it shouldn’t.
All day long, I see people performing work that, to me, feels like my Everest. My dad did manual labor for a living, and he never seemed to be bothered by it, but I can’t dig a hole to save my life. Every time I go to the dentist, I profusely thank him and say, “No matter how much this job pays, there is no way I could do what you’re doing.” All day long, the people who work with me do things that, to me, feel impossible, but they hum along unscathed. And they look at me and say that what I do feels impossible to them.
So, yes, I am finding myself believing in miracles. I’m finding myself with newfound bravery and am putting it out there that one day, hopefully not too long from now, I want to wake up on Monday and create.
I want to wake up to writing deadlines. I want to be a strategic marketer and grow my brand while helping others on their healing journeys. I hope to one day soon have a podcast and be on a book tour. I do want to continue to help businesses grow and do good in the world, but in doing so, I don’t want to do Mondays anymore.
One trait of mine that I’m most proud of is that I don’t have aspirations to be rich. I want to continue to build my life of abundance, where I have more than I need to survive, but I value peace and happiness far more than I value money. To me, money is only a tool for safety and comfort, and yes, I do enjoy a comfortable life, but my ideal life is to say goodbye to that Monday stress.
