On which path to take…

I used to hate “forks in the road.” Those moments in my life when I have to choose which path to take.

When I was growing up, I just say say yes to whatever was presented to me, or whatever was advised the best road to take.

I didn’t really have anything planned out for myself. Heck, I didn’t even have the will to face another day. So I just go wherever, without much thought on how this will affect my future. 

That’s why it’s so liberating (and so scary) when I finally made a decision for myself. 

When I finally chose to drop out from one of the most prestigious universities in the country, I was met with lots of questions. Well-meaning loved ones expressed their concerns and advise, telling me that it’s such a waste to let go of an opportunity that most people have been wanting to have.

What they didn’t know is that when I decided to drop out, I also decided to give myself a true chance to finally live my life. Not just to exist in this world and go through the motions, but to fully, completely, intentionally live my life.

I’d love to say that it has been an easy and smooth journey ever since that day. But the ugly truth is that, it never got easy. 

At first, it has been a real struggle having to fight my old self that is wanting to keep me safe in my pessimistic, hopeless void of despair.

Every single day is a “fork in the road” moment when I have to choose life over death. Get up vs stay down. Today vs no more. 

Every time I choose to walk the path of living, my resolve to live strengthened. Until the day came that I didn’t have to make a choice anymore because there is no other choice but to live and press on towards whatever tomorrow might bring. 

When that’s done, the stakes of which path to take got bigger and scarier.

Should I get a part-time job and work while studying?
Should I join this out-of-town trip?
Should I stay another semester at school to re-do my thesis?
Should I take a job at a hotel or restaurant?
Should I quit my work-from-home job?
Should I stay in the US and see what will happen?
Should I try this opportunity?
Should I invest in myself and join this coaching program?
Should I…should I…Should I…

I have now learned to fall in love with the process of choosing which path to take.

Whenever I am at a crossroads, I know that I am being pruned, polished, and primed.

It may not get easier, but it gets simpler.

For every time I have to make a decision, I am getting more clarity, confidence and courage on whatever path I’ve chosen for myself. 

I know when to say no. I know when to say yes.

I am getting more attuned to what will bring me more energy and what will drain me of it.

And at the end of the day, I know that no matter what, all is well.

My God has been so faithful. Just as He has led me in the past, I know that He is leading and guiding me every step of the way.

As long as I stay centered, grounded, and aligned with my Highest Source and choose to live in integrity — I will walk the path that best resonates with me.

Choices can be scary. 

It can paralyze you into indecision, which is much scarier. Being stuck in a life that keeps you from living the highest expression of yourself — it’s no way to live.

Are you now at your own “fork in the road” moment but you don’t know which path to take? 

Let’s talk! I’d love to help you explore what’s possible for you.
