18. Fall into Place

Vincent-van-Gogh-The-Starry-Night-631“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” – Vincent Van Gogh

Four years ago I really started worrying about what I was going to do with the rest of my life. That feeling stayed with me on and off for about three years. One day it dawned on me that all I really needed to do was do the next thing I felt the universe calling me to do. If I stay in that moment, the anxiety of the future disappears. It has taken some time to allow that fear to greatly dissipate, and I am not sure if it will fully disappear, but it is much better now.

This might seem very cliché, and what you hear from a lot of self-help sort of books, or motivational videos. The way I truly know that it is working in my life is because I keep a log of my life. For over two years, I have consistently written about my day. This takes about 15 minutes out of my day. The reward is I can see how little actions I took two years ago, or even just last year, have set me up for the exciting adventures that I am on today.

I continue to do the next right action in my life today. When I am able to do this with a heart full of love, and enthusiasm that is contagious only amazing things happen in my life. These things do not all happen at once, much like what was discussed last week, but amazing things do come.

Affirmation: This amazing life I have today is from the actions of yesterday, and the amazing life that is waiting for me tomorrow can only be set up by what I do today. Thank you life for the guidance to allow life to fall into place.

Call to Action: Please share with the CYLFriday community how small things in your past have added up to big things today. If that is not obvious to you, share what little thing you will do today to make a change in your future.

  1. Thanks for this post. It’s amazing how worry can be minimized when we just focus on the next guide post.

    I too look back at my journaling in disbelief. 5 years ago, a friend got me a job as an enrollment advisor. The whole time I worked there, I questioned (complained) that the job was feeding my soul. It wasn’t “me”. That January, I journaled my desire to find a career that moved me — something I truly believed in & where I could make a difference. A week later, I enrolled in my dream school where I met a guy who got me an interview there — only because I had that enrollment experience. That job & school propelled me into a life changing flow of events leaving me to do what I love everyday. No seed or circumstance is too small.
