“It's worth making time to find the things that really stir your soul. That’s what makes you really feel alive. You have to say ‘no’ to other things you’re used to, and do it with all your heart.”
Paving new paths.
Like taking the road less traveled, it's hard to try new things. Our comfort zone is our easy zone - it's easy to get into a routine and convince yourself it's best to stay in that routine. Things are comfortable, they're reliable, and they're expected. There are few things left unforeseen and sometimes that seems better than the struggles we know we may face if we turn towards a new path: one that hasn't been paved, one that will requires hours of work. If the routine you've set for yourself is full of tasks that do not stir your soul, that don't make you feel that combination of being alive while also giving you a sense of being at home in your skin, then maybe it's time to start paving new paths and saying no to the easy and yes to the unknown.
