In the midst of an internal crisis, I came across a quote that I took as a sign from the Universe:
“Optimist: Someone who figures that taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it’s a cha-cha.”
It is okay to take a step back and slow down when you don’t know where you are going. It is okay to pause, catch your breath and take your god damn time. It isn’t stupidity, but wisdom.
Our culture demands we keep running. From the moment we wake up to our coffees and our jobs and our gyms and yoga classes, there is no time to catch our breath, to just be. Its like we are hard-pressed to know all the answers, to have everything figured out to be happy and successful.
Fuck this culture and let me tell you this: It’s your life. It’s your time. Savor every minute of it. If you are struggling with your path, don’t force the knowing. It will come. You will make it happen. Just trust yourself.
And do the cha-cha. ❤
