Be Brave: Start Paving Another Road


"If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one." 
~Dolly Parton


Sometimes you find yourself making goals and organizing your life and you suddenly realize that the more successful you are at achieving those goals, the less your life looks like you

And all the work and planning is moving you faster and faster down the wrong path and further away from the one your heart yearns for.

It’s never too late to stop.  You can always turn around.  And if you find yourself realizing your life doesn’t fit your heart’s journey anymore, it’s time to pave a new road, building on what you’ve learned.  Each mile of hard-won knowledge is another step into wisdom.  Every stone you’ve stumbled on is a gem of insight into how you can build your dreams.

Life is sometimes a straight path.  Sometimes it’s a winding road.  At big moments, we come to crossroads with clear choices.  And sometimes?  Sometimes, we come to a dirt road leading off the highway we’re barreling down.  If we’re moving too fast, we’ll miss it.  If our lives are too loud, we won’t hear the call to go off-roading; to follow what seems like a whim but is actually our heart calling to us, wanting to find something new and wild and just a little bit scary.  

Take time to slow down.  To listen to your heart and what it’s telling you.  And then take those dreams and wishes and pave another road—the one that takes you there.


What brave thing will you do TODAY to make your dreams come true?
