True North: Living It Out
We’ve covered a lot this month when it comes to finding and living in our True North. As we wrap up the series, I wanted to answer a question I get a lot from my clients.
But, Heather, what if it all goes wrong?
Please remember, we have the right and power to change or course correct our True North any time we want. We aren’t “stuck here,” any more than we want to be and allow. We have the right to say no and to put boundaries around our lives to protect ourselves. And we can have the life we want, even if it doesn’t always feel like that.
If you find yourself at a point where you need to make the next decision and you don’t know which way to go, it’s okay to ask for help from those you trust. I usually pull some tarot cards and sit with the possibilities of their wisdom for a while. Just offering myself some time to think things through is all I need to get myself on the right track. Maybe a trusted friend or family member can give you that other set of eyes and ears that you might need and you can just to talk it out.
Another great way to realign yourself is to start with the basics. Take your mission statement and see if it needs tweaking. Did you move out of a situation or away from people who were in your mind when you created it? Is this mission statement still relevant?
Go back and tweak it to make it fit your current path and where you stand right now, in this moment. Like, maybe you knew you were at your best when you were happy, but through the process of walking your path, you moved into a place where true joy is available to you now and “happy” just doesn’t cut it anymore. Hooray! Change that statement to reflect your newfound joy.
Or, are you finding out sooner that circumstances, events, or people aren’t going to align with you and your mission statement? Why are you suffering them in your life, then? As we create, we often get to the point where we can “see ‘em coming.” This is a great place to be.
The problem comes when we can see situations or people coming that don’t align with us anymore, but we don’t do anything to get out of the way of them. You’ve been living in your own power and on your own purposeful path too long for that. Use this new wisdom to say, “No, thank you” to anything or anyone who doesn’t align with you and your path anymore. You have things to do and people to love who are matches for you. Enjoy them!
I’m really proud of the work we’ve done this month. Next month, we’ll be looking at transitions, how they impact our lives, and how, when they come, we can continue to stand in our power.
