We fear that we’ll make a decision that we’ll be stuck with forever, but nothing is permanent. Everything can be changed. If you decide you hate your website design, you can change it. If you decide your initial business idea isn’t for you anymore, you can change it. And guess what? It won’t kill you, your life won’t come crumbling down, and your tribe won’t all of a sudden hate your guts.
I was reluctant to change my blog name in fear that I’d end up disliking the new one and that it would somehow confuse everyone and no one would visit anymore. I feel so much better now that I've changed it! It feels like a better fit, and if in the future I need to change it again, I will know it’s perfectly okay to do so.
Same goes with starting a business. We all have so many passions and ideas and we’re running in circles trying to figure out the “perfect” one. It won’t ever be perfect and the one you start off with might not be the one that lights up your soul later on. I started Gypsy Love Warrior with the intent of focusing on self-love, but it’s grown into something more and the focus is getting clearer. The lesson is, movement creates clarity.
Don’t get stuck in the fear.
Move towards what feels right in this moment. Most likely, it will evolve into something else, and that’s okay.
The more you move into your ideas, the clearer the picture becomes.
It really is the best advice I’ve ever been given (thank you, Great Spirit!). As soon as you stop in the quicksand of fear and doubt, you’re sure to sink. Keep walking, keep changing. It will be okay.
