The Crossroads

Hey Party People,


Life can be a bit of a gong show sometimes and these past couple of years it just feels like there’s always something. Anyone else or just me and my family? During these times it’s up to us to decide how we address it and if we rise high or dip low.


Every once in a while though we come to a crossroads where it’s not a turbulent up or down but it’s a time where we get to make a choice. This probably happens more often than you think, you just don’t know you’re choosing these different options. Each time you come to a crossroads you have three choices.

  • You can stay the same.

  • You can continue on the path you’ve planned out or,

  • You can choose the unknown.


No choice is better than the other but each will present different challenges. When you choose to stay the same you think you know what to expect and have ways to deal and cope with whatever comes your way. You can continue towards that 5yr or 10yr plan and anticipate what your challenges might be using logic and probability, and expect others to understand and help you along this path. The last choice of choosing the unknown is a different kind of challenge because it’s the path less travelled. It’s up to you to actively seek the answers and uncover the right questions every step of the way. You don’t get to see what’s coming up or anticipate the challenges that arise, instead, you must embrace trust and believe that everything is working out for you.


Picture yourself at this crossroads. Have you been here before? Are you here right now? (*cough* I am...) What choice do you make?


For me, I’ve always had this whisper telling me that I was made for the extraordinary. I didn’t want “normal”. Though if I’m completely honest sometimes I wish I did because I would know what to do, what to expect, and everyone else would get it. Instead, I’m choosing to believe in and strive for the extraordinary which also translates into stepping deeper into the unknown. I rarely feel like I know what I’m doing and I continuously have to turn inward and trust that I am exactly where I am supposed to be. Now that I’ve started on this path of the unknown it feels too late to turn back and I can only hope that pockets of extraordinary pop up along the way.


What is your whisper telling you?


Again, there is no right or wrong choice, but there is a right one for you, and only you know what that is.


Find the Calm. Breathe. Get curious and remember anything is possible…


Here’s your party jam!
