If you’re ready for something new, I have a few words of encouragement to fuel your shift in direction. We’re not meant to stay stuck in one season forever, after all.
Waiting for the destination? It’s in each step. Waiting for the next new thing? But then there will be a next new thing after that one. Waiting for the right time to start? It’s probably right now.
If you’re tired of waiting for something or someone else, and you’re ready to start something new, right now is your time. How you live your life from this moment forward is up to you.
Here are some handwritten notes from my heart to yours, just to remind you how powerful you are.
6 Encouraging Reminders When You’re Ready for Something New
1. Wonder what could grow from here.
Something to ponder every time you’re standing in a dark place and can’t see the light yet. For every time you’re unsure of the outcome. Every single time you’re faced with an unpleasant situation. Wonder what could grow, from this place.
It’s springtime here, and this season always reminds me how beautiful growth can be.Your sense of curiosity moves you forward, it makes the process a lot more enjoyable, and it keeps the heart youthful. tell a friend
2. Let hope be your choice.
I’m not saying it’s easy every second of every day. I’m just saying: Hope is my choice. Consider making it yours. It will give you the power to make another decision, to start something new, to live into the life you envision for yourself.
Trust opens the door.“No” might just mean “not yet.” tell a friend
3. Chaos is part of creation.
A quilt looks like a jumbled mess of colors, prints, and memories mid-creation. Progress can be a lot like that too. It’s hard to see past the immediate chaos, but keep this truth alive in you: there’s a larger masterpiece in the works.
One stitch at a time…
4. An open heart will take you far.
With an open heart, you’ll be more open to exploring what a closed heart fears.
5. Allow room for wonder.
Stay with the mystery. Leave room for wonder. Space for curiosity. Surrender for repair. Air for nourishment. Time for play. Silence for awe… These are necessities for serendipity.

6. What’s the best that could happen?
I love asking myself this question because I actually have to stop and really think about all the possibilities—and not just the terrible ones that anxiety would have me believe in.
