“There are some moments in life that are like pivots around which your existence turns—small intuitive flashes, when you know you have done something correct for a change…” ~ Robyn Davidson

You know the feeling; it’s stark like lightning, when you make a choice of your own free will that goes against the plan. So often it seems there is a linear path laid down on the day we are born that dictates where we go, what to do and what to value. To stray means uncertainty and potential failure, but it also means opportunity and the glorious chance to discover a new and better way.

What we do now is a personal endeavor to change the trajectory of our lives. The path we were on was defined and unquestioned. So we removed the constraints and subjected our lives to the ultimate Q&A. Not only did we discover gobs of bleak and empty spaces but also unchecked stress and expectations which were no longer serving us.

The very bright side to this finding, is that with a quick downsizing (figurative and literal), we were left with a glorious amount of room for growth and experiences. We have chosen to fill our lives brimful with adventure and light and to fervently pursue the things we love. The end result resides lofty in the clouds at the edge of the horizon and we are in no rush for conclusions.
