Often, and especially in times of personal struggle, we can't definitively know what is the right thing to do next, or even what's working. But we can identify what is wrong. We can point to what isn't working for us, what is leaving us feeling unsatisfied and apathetic, and we can start there.

Kate Horodyski | Posted 06.14.2016 | GPS for the Soul
Kate Horodyski

I began to realize that this wasn't spirituality. Spirituality isn't obligation and empty actions; it's being fully alive, doing things that light you up, enjoying and loving life. Trying to force myself to sit through another New Moon manifestation ceremony while I really just wanted to be out having fun wasn't all that helpful.

I know as grown-ups we have weary miles on us, many responsibilities too. But maybe like fog, these things aren't the composite of us. But simply covering what has undeniably been there all along.

When you decide NOT to go after your dreams outside of motherhood, it absolutely comes at a cost to you. You'll miss out on the opportunity to do something just for you.
