Recently, I drove to town to take a yoga class (yoga teachers need yoga classes too!). While I was in town I received some news that changed the course of my life, my path. Or at least what I thought was my path.
I had planned on purchasing a yoga studio that was already a thriving business. And I was actually going in to town to take a class at said studio. The owner met me before class and told me she had received a deposit from someone else for the purchase of the studio that morning.
I tried not to let the complete disappointment show. I was kind, calm, and friendly. But inside I was a little angry and very disappointed. This could’ve been a break for me! This could’ve been exactly what would help my health coaching business get off the ground. This could’ve been an opportunity for some cash that I desperately needed.
But it wasn’t.
And sometimes life is like that. Sometimes, we get started down one path and quickly (or sometimes slowly) realize that wasn’t THE path.
But I was excited!
Yes, and perhaps something wasn’t quite right for me. Something that I didn’t, and still don’t, understand. Yet, I trust.
I trust in the path God has laid out for me. I trust that God will lead me to the right thing. And maybe that thing is right where I am. Maybe I just need to be still for one moment. Stillness is very hard for me (That’s a whole other blog post! HA!).
So, when life takes a 180, or a 360, or just spinning in circles, perhaps it’s time for rest, stillness, and listening. I’m giving it a try. Want to join me?
