What the universe is trying to tell me right now.

Do you pay attention to your life?

I used to miss the whispers until they became shouts, pushing me into precarious situations that probably could have been avoided had I been paying more attention to my heart.

Nevertheless, I’m grateful for that learning. All those stumbles and falls and heartbreak.

They brought me to a place of learning, understanding and listening to my heart, above all else. Despite all else.

So, what is it telling me now?

Pull people closer.

The signs have been both subtle and loud. I’ve found myself the leader of an amazing team of individuals. I find myself in contact with people and experiences that remind me of these people. That remind me how lucky I am, and how long I’ve gone without closeness like this. It’s time. In all places of my life. Including here.

Love yourself. Others will follow suit.

I was sort of waiting for everyone to love me first. But it doesn’t work like that. Because if you don’t love yourself, you’ll reject love as though someone is making a mistake. I’ve been given so many opportunities this year to see myself in a beautiful light, to accept compliments and see myself in a position of importance. All signs pointing to the fact that YES, it is true. I am lovable and I should just go ahead and begin to love myself, too.

Adventure.

I love to see the world. It’s become a non-negotiable for me. Circumstances are presenting themselves to me in ways that don’t make exploring easier (still a ton of logistics and money to figure out) but that makes it all possible. I’ll be thinking of a place and then at the grocery store I’ll see a magazine featuring the places that I’ve been dreaming of. It’s time to see more of the world.

Plant roots. Here.

Relationships with property owners, offers from friend who have space for us, potential properties becoming available that would honestly be a dream. Pop Ups + articles about real estate acquisition and random conversations about business owners. All preparing me to have the knowledge that I need to take this leap, to make this commitment.

What signs are you missing that could help you move your life forward?

Start looking. Start seeing what’s right in front of you. It’s there. I promise.
