Trust like… Amanda Palmer

It has come to my attention over the last twelve months that what I have been doing is exactly what I needed to do. I have learned, perhaps again, how to let go and trust that I will fall lightly into the right place.

What if everything going wrong sets you free to do what is wonderfully right?

My focus has previously been on achieving, to the exclusion of living. But I never seemed to achieve enough. I constantly, judgementally discredited all of my talents always waiting to “Get a real job” as Amanda Palmer put it so beautifully. My goals over the past few years have been to change this outlook. While breaking the habit I have repeatedly found that much of my self worth has been closely entwined with whatever job I have been doing. Earlier in the year, quite a few unexpected surprises (or blessings) forced me to re-evaluate where I was headed and what  I should do next. As usual, I had a grand plan so this was not an ideal scenario for me. Through everything unraveling, I realised how far off track I really was and how much of a beautiful gem of an opportunity lay before me. An opportunity to really make my “Real Job” happen! I don’t know where it will take me but I am pretty excited about it! I’m not saying it has been easy, but working forward I have been able to complete my certificate in massage, create a long term goal for how I want to live and create some wonderful friendships. And hello, I am blogging again. That’s just the start!

My real job is using all of my talents, whether paid or unpaid. My job is to be creative, challenge myself, live life as one big picture, not divided into work, home, social time.  What I have learned is…

Trust in yourself, believe in your people! Trust them to see you and catch you when you leap!

Oh and listen to Amanda Palmer…
