I spent most of yesterday in a training about divergent thinking. Listening to the facilitator, I started to think about what time or space I need to flow through my creative process. Not much of an aha moment but, mornings seem to do it for me. I’m usually in whatever thought fresh off of waking up, that I may need to jot down. I’d been rummaging through my thoughts & memories to realized that I am not as present as I should be. Still dealing with the what ifs at the start of this year to the what will happen next in the future, I’m in limbo. I felt like I was failing at life sometimes, but the good ol’ Instagram algorithm will always align with my universe.

I came across this post and immediately it made sense. My timing isn’t your timing and my life will never be your life. What I do with my life is, learn from others and hope they can learn from me. I placed a great amount of expectation on myself to prove that I am worthy to others while ignoring my list of WINS. Hence explains why I’m eager to seek new beginnings all the time. Moving, a new job, a new partner, a new car, another trip across the world, won’t change the journey, it only changes the path.
See you in July, I’m using June to be present.
