Mood: a little gross.
Thoughts: Actually, jk, I had a thought just now.
I looked into my north node sign (in astrology), and realized that it was in Scorpio. I’m not entirely sure how much I believe in Astrology, but the north node in Scorpio’s biggest hangup aligned with what I do actually have trouble with: letting go.
So, some of the biggest pieces of advice that were given was to learn to let go, and stop waiting for everything to perfectly fall into place in order to make changes in life. Which, I mean, yeah. That’s pretty spot on for me, and very valuable info to remember. However, I had to remind myself of another thing: simply knowing this is NOT what will cause change. I have to.
I think, tbh, I’ll probably only learn through experience and becoming sick and tired of being sick and tired again. I get way too comfortable in doing things the same old way, and even people telling me I should change simply isn’t always enough to cause me to change. I have to do it in my own time, even if it’s slower than others, and that’s okay.
So, there are two things that I’m hoping you’ll take away from this post. The first is that you’re on your own path, you won’t progress as fast as others at certain things, and that is totally fine. Your path isn’t supposed to be like everyone else’s.
The second thing is that simply knowing that you must change your ways isn’t the sole thing that causes change. We could sit around, reading motivational quotes all day long, and our lives would stay exactly the same until WE change them. You won’t always want to change until experience shows you that you have to sometimes. It’ll get super rough when that happens, I’ll admit. But, it’ll be well worth it, and you’ll grow from it.
