Once you know it’s time to shift into the solution, just be open to taking small steps toward moving the needle forward around what it is you don’t want anymore. Guess what? You don’t always have to know what goes in its place. Being open to stepping into an empty space where that undesirable thing once was, and not feeling the urge to immediately fill it with something else before you take the leap, is powerful. We can get so scared to sit in that void that we keep things as they are, however stagnant, for fear of making the wrong choice or because we feel the need to have it all mapped out beforehand. So just begin with making the decision, take those small actions to stand in the unknown, and then give permission for time itself to help you figure out what’s next. It’s OK to not know, and it’s normal to be in the hallway waiting for the next door to reveal itself before you walk through it.My fellow fearless travelers: it’s an exercise in futility to try to keep the status quo when the time has come for movement. So take stock, be bold, and trust in all the good on its way to you as a result of your courage. There’s a time to coast enjoying the view and a time to envision something new, even if it’s not fully in focus. Knowing the difference and tuning into that space between those two states is what creates a seamless adventure in fully living life “to the max.” (Yes, I just dusted off that 80s expression—bringing it back!).
