We've all asked ourselves, how do I know if I'm on the right path?
Well, I'm here to tell you we're always on the right path, even when it feels wrong.
We are always going in the direction of where we need to be and every experience we encounter, the good and the bad, are necessary experiences for our learning and our growth. They provide us the tools and knowledge we require moving forward along our journey.
There are many times in my life where I would have thought I was on the wrong path but eventually, all those perceived 'bad' experiences actually brought me to where I am today.
Whenever we feel like we are on the wrong path, we are actually receiving little messages and insights from our unconscious self, our higher self, giving us nudges and suggestions that perhaps it's time to change something. There is something that isn't working anymore. And when you feel those nudges, use them as a time to go within for self reflection and to see where maybe you need to do something differently or try something new.
Our higher self is the self that is always looking out for our best interests. It's the little voice in the back of our mind that tries to steer us in the right direction when we are making choices that perhaps won't be benefit us spiritually, mentally, emotionally or physically. It's our inner guidance system and intuitive wisdom looking out for us. If only we listened more.
We're always doing the best with what we know, and when it's time to do something differently, we will. Sometimes we just need a little more time and lot more knowledge to know where we need to go, what our next step will be.
So never worry, the path you're on is the right path, and along the path you will acquire everything you need to know to get you to where you want to be. Follow your path with trust and belief that every step is a step toward your truth.
"Life is not about gutting out every situation. It's about identifying opportunity or the lack thereof. If your pride is all that is standing in the way of quitting, quit. The right people won't care and the wrong people don't matter. If you know you're on the right path, persevere though the pain. It will be worth it."
