Do you feel like you have a significant decision to make?
One that seems so big, that it is terrifying, perhaps paralysing?
How do you know if you are making the best choice for you?
How do you know if you should act on an idea?
Before making the decision, decide whether saying yes to a decision will make you;
a) the best version of you...?
b) a smaller, suppressed version of you...?
Will it make you heart
a) more open and loving of others and yourself...?
b) more closed and negative...?
Life and business guru Marie Forleo talks about feeling expansive versus feeling contracted. When you want to do something scary, but know it will make you a bigger and better version of you, then you have to do it. When you feel constricted, contracted or like retreating into your self or as though you will be smaller if you go ahead with this action, then it is normally not right for you.
Consider where you are in your life right now.
Are you able to be your true self in this position?
Do you feel small, unworthy or like your gifts are not able to shine?
Sometimes our fear of what we are leaving behind stops us from moving forward. We are willing to put up with pain, loneliness and a lack of fulfilment just to hold onto memories and experiences that can be replicated or cherished as moments of the past that will never be forgotten.
If you decide to go ahead with an decision that you know is right for you (despite the fact you may be terrified), it is through actions, little and big that you will be empowered to move beyond feelings of fear.
When I first got engaged, I felt fear immediately. I temporarily felt a sense of 'single life' (one I had not experienced for 7 years!) slip away and I forgot the overwhelming feeling of love and gratitude that was just beneath the surface. It was through taking little steps towards the wedding that the fear began to slip away and that I became more centred remembering how wonderful it would be to spend my life (or as long as I desire) with my amazing man.
I wrote this song about those actions that move us forward, however the title represents the little fear and nostalgia of the past that we can acknowledge and then move beyond- 'Something Blue'.

So tell me now, where are you suffering for fear of letting go of the past?
What big decision are you faced with at the moment?
When you think about going ahead with a decision, do you feel like it will lead you to be the best version of you?
And, the big question.
What is stopping you from taking action, right now?!
