Living Life Interrupted





It happens when you are least expecting.
It happens in fleeting moments of pure joy.
It's completely out of your control.
It's freeing.
It’s beautiful.
It's saying yes to new adventures.

You look back on those moments; those short glimpses of heaven where you sat watching the rain fall soft on the warm pavement, when you knew exactly how you wanted your future to look. It’s those moments that shatter everything and bring about the most radically beautiful adventure.

When life is truly interrupted, big decisions are made for you. It is no longer a series of challenging “to do’s” or terrifying tasks but rather a simple and peaceful “yes” to opportunities that feel second nature, to opportunities that feel like home.

I truly believe that when you set your mind to something, absolutely nothing can stand in your way. Often times, the only thing keeping us from getting exactly what we want is our own attitudes and self-doubt. I’ve come to find that throwing negative self talk and personal disbelief out the window in attempt to uncover the greatest adventure that I can possibly find is the most eye opening of joys I’ve ever come to know.

Times of transition don’t have to be difficult. They don’t have to be overwhelming. If you set out to achieve a series of goals and spend time re-evaluating what you want, I promise you will find exactly what you are looking for. Refuse to take no for an answer. When you are open to new, challenging adventures, opportunities to meet your goals will present themselves and you will be ready to say yes with full confidence.

It is in times of transition that I have come to know indescribable peace. Saying yes to the unknown no longer evokes crippling fear, but brings comfort. I believe, with every ounce of my being, that when an opportunity is right for you, nothing in your power can keep you from being exactly where you are meant to be. Regardless of how often you deny it, list excuses or doubt that you are deserving of the opportunity at hand, that simple “yes” will be the easiest word you’ve ever uttered when the timing is right. That’s true peace. It’s that almost sedative-like state where everything simply makes sense and you truly come to understand clarity.

Living life interrupted is a funny thing. Even when you go looking, you won’t know when it’s happening. It will completely blindside you.  It will fall into your lap and you’ll sit in absolute awe that it was so seamlessly orchestrated, seemingly out of your control. Refuse to stop looking for life interrupted. It’s a beautiful way to live. It’s a mentality that motivates and brings about growth, room for beautiful relationships and indescribable adventure.

Embrace moments that scare you. In time, they won’t seem quite so debilitating and before you know it, you’ll be living the life you’ve only dreamed.

Stop dreaming. You really can have it all. With a creative heart, an open mind and a positive attitude, your dreams can become your reality and your reality will continue to bring about the most overwhelming sense of joy and peace that you’ve ever experienced.

I tell myself once again:

Lean into ambiguity.
Be open to possibility.
The sky is the limit.
Take risks.
Pursue your wildest dreams.

This time, I mean it.
