'There are two great days in a person's life: The day we are born and the day we discover why' - William Barclay
It was my birthday yesterday and honestly, the last years I always become somewhat become fearful on this day- realizing that time is passing but I still didn't feel like I am in the right place or on the right path, thinking I would need to thrive higher, be greater, wiser, more compassionate, more creative, more serious, more engaged, more active - you get the point. I did not have enough love for myself and rather listened to my self-doubts instead of making space for the truth to unfold.
This year, however, there was none of these thoughts. Even though I probably did one of the scariest things in my life -letting go of my job without having a proper Plan B in mind- I do not sense fear. I feel that I am exactly where I need to be and am ready to give way to unleash my full potential. My life is unfolding in the most beautiful, curious and exciting way - and I have never been so in love with life as I am right now.
I guess I have found my own key to happiness. My mission now is to find a way to pass this on and share the gifts that I have received to contribute to this world in a meaningful and sustainable way.
