How do you know you’re on the right path to fulfilling your destiny? This is a question I have often wondered myself, and I’m sure you have too. We all want confirmation and the comfort of knowing that we are in alignment with our higher-selves and God, so how do we go about finding it? By asking yourself how you presently feel about the circumstances of your life, and allowing yourself to honestly answer.
We often avoid being fully honest with ourselves when some area of our life is less than satisfactory. We fear fully acknowledging this void because in doing so we become responsible for changing it, and changing it often times takes us out of our comfort zone. We would rather leave circumstances as is than be responsible for changing them. But the truth is, only you are responsible for the circumstances of your life and only you have the power to change them. If you don’t step forward, you will always be in the same place.
So then what does it feel like when you are on the right path? Well, first of all every path is the right path. There is no wrong path necessarily. There is simply just easier and harder. The “right” path is the one that is easy and feels effortless. It is when you enjoy your job, look forward to starting each day, have fulfilling relationships with others and generally feel in good health.
In contrast, you’ve taken a “wrong” detour when the roads become bumpy and your life is filled with resistance. You know you’re off track when you feel drained physically, emotionally and mentally. When everything feels like such a struggle, that’s your cue you’re off course. If you feel as if you’re losing or betraying yourself in any way, that’s the wrong way. Negative feelings are our navigation guide attempting to redirect us in the right direction.
The truth is, you should never stay in a job that isn’t recognizing and appreciating your talents, or in a relationship that is anything less than loving. Only you can determine your worth and the world will respond to how high you set yourself, so I suggest you aim high. Life is meant to be lived, and a part of being alive is feeling alive. If you don’t feel alive figure out what it is that’s cutting off your circulation and then CUT IT OUT. Love yourself enough to ensure your own happiness, because you are worth it!
