Choose love

Choose love

You can’t describe the feeling.

But it’s always there.

It’s real.

And it makes you feel empty.

We take that feeling to work with us.

And bring it back home again.

Sometimes it even comes on holiday with us.

If failure can trap us, success can do the exact same thing.

Maybe you climbed the corporate ladder and then realised the view from the top left you feeling like you climbed the wrong mountain.

Sometimes, we live ‘divided’ lives.

The inner you doesn’t match the outer you.

That conversation can take years to resolve.

Sometimes, it goes unanswered.

Because we find ways to numb the pain.

A pay rise here. A nice car there.

But that feeling just taps away.

That feeling has our back.

Because it is our soul telling us:

‘Hey, wake up. You got other stuff to do.’

Go start the thing you keep thinking about.

Answer the calling.
