You have the right to change your mind; to change course half way through; to choose something different whenever what you are experiencing right now does not serve you anymore.
Here’s the thing: if you are not happy with your current situation you have the right and you have the responsibility to find what would bring you to a happier place. Once you know what it is, start moving in that direction.
I changed directions many times in my life and every single change allowed me to grow, to expand and to make even better choices for myself. It wasn’t always easy to decide to head into a new direction because I was taught to finish what I had started. So I struggled with the finishing part, until I realized that I do not have to finish anything that does not feel right anymore.
Why spend another month or another year in order to achieve the completion of something that my heart is not into anymore? Wouldn’t that be lost time? I would not be able to get that precious time back, so I give myself permission to stop mid-way, reconsider my options, discover what it is that I really want and make new choices. I set new goals all the time.
It is true that sometimes you might feel like giving up because you are scared, and if that is the case, then I say: keep going. Don’t let fear stop you. Go after what you desire.
But if the reason you want to stop is because it does not feel right anymore to keep going in the current direction, then stop.
Give yourself permission to choose something different.
Don’t look back.
Follow your new dream.
And do not let anyone tell you what you should be doing.
Choose what is right for you.
In every single moment.
And if it does not feel quite right, choose again. And again. And again.
