My Mother always told me that there are different paths that you can take to get to the same destination, your purpose in life. One path is going to be difficult, you'll hit a lot more bumps along the way. The other path will flow more gently.
This lesson has proven itself to me in many ways over the course of my life thus far.
It feels as though when you change your thoughts, switch gears, follow your passion, point yourself in the direction that feels right in your heart, not necessarily what makes sense in your mind, the Universe/Spirit/God will respond. It can be subtle or in your face, but it will respond. Inspired thoughts, meeting new people that bring your journey to new places, a feeling of genuine exitement, like a child on Christmas Eve. The destination may not be what you intended for at the begining, but rest assured, it will be exactly where you need to be.
Do what you Love and Love what you do.
