Walking Away.

Many times we are faced with the choice to stay or walk away.

Right now many of us are facing this choice.  Whether it's careers, relationships, homes, communities, etc. we are feeling the need to walk away.  To step forward into their life and have faith that all will be provided for. 

This is scary business, it means we have to step outside of our comfort zone.  Leave behind all that we know in search of a better way of living.

You've heard the familiar saying that people, places and things come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime.  Sometimes the very people whom we thought were to be in our lives for a lifetime are suddenly not there anymore or we are having a strong desire to disconnect from them.  You may find yourself wanting to uproot and live somewhere entirely different or you may feel a deep desire to surround yourself with completely different people.  This is a totally natural part of evolution.  It is also one that needs to be addressed and fulfilled in order that you can stay balanced and in alignment with where you are going in life.

This has happened many times in my life and for various reasons.  Usually people quietly leave and one day you notice you haven't had contact with them in a while.  Other times there is conflict and an end to the relationship is the result.  On many occasions those very people have come back into my life, maybe not in the same capacity but they come back none the less.

Many of us hold on much too long to relationships, jobs, etc.  This can cause a whole host of issues in our lives, it keeps us stuck in a space that is not comfortable and we become resentful of everything.

Every person in our life has a gift to give to us, whether it's a lesson or a trustworthy friend during a difficult time or something else.  Once that gift is given they are to move on to the next phase or experience in their life.  It is selfish of us to hang on too tightly.  If you can look at the situation from a place of pure love you are able to see the truth beneath the physical.  That the entire experience is absolutely perfect.

We need to remember to move with the flow of life, don't get too caught up in the drama.  Don't sweat the small stuff.

Walking away from anything may seem hard at first, but it is when you walk through an experience of great difficulty that you learn and grow the most in life.
