But that’s another area where this phrase can just really refocus us: two things can be true at the same time. You can have awesome goals and dreams that you’re striving toward, and be navigating through the bumps along the way. You can have a lot of things going right, and have a pile of things that are a mess. You can be feeling super creative, and be feeling tired/low energy.
What we have to do with our two truth is OWN them both, and find a way to live with each reality.
I can only speak to this from my own experience, so I’ll share what I’ve been dealing with recently. Over the last 8 years I’ve run a wedding photography business, and this business was truly the only path I saw for myself as I pictured the future. Then I was reminded that I am allowed to change my mind about what I do in my life- and I started to picture a different future. Now I’m between both worlds- a world where I love wedding photography, my clients, my team and what I do, and one where I am preparing to say goodbye to the way I’ve known that path, and get onto a new one.
The best way I’ve been able to manage this very unfamiliar and somewhat uncomfortable place is to remember I’m allowed to feel both. They’re both important to my process!
