Letting go of "how"

Everyone's on a journey. Sometimes we know the destination and sometimes we're just wandering aimlessly, trying to figure out our way. Neither is right or wrong. If there's one thing that I finally wrapped my head around this year, is that it NEVER happens the way you expect.

Now that I'm writing full-time, I'm constantly plagued with fear and doubt. And 9 times out of 10, the fear is related to the how. How will my dream career support me? How should this scene end? How will I get published? How will I find my audience?

How? How? How?

It's time to let go of the how. And embrace the now.

Focus on what you want to create. Then do it. Push past the fear and take whatever form of action in the moment feels right. Tip toe, shimmy or leap towards your destination.

Once you truly align yourself with your joy and express it in your own way, then the Universe will meet you half way. I've seen it happen to my friends (3 of them have signed book deals this year) and have experienced it many times over myself (like finishing a clean draft of my YA and getting feedback from beta readers).

We can never control how our life will unfold. But we can follow our passions, one step at a time.

let go and flow,
