You still have something important to do
By Sue Frederick
You still have something important to do—even if you can’t see it right now. Even when you feel lost and pointless, without direction, floating in grief, that great thing still lives inside of you. Deep down.
When You’re Ready
When the time is right and the world is ready and you’ve learned what you needed to learn, your great gift will come pouring out of you like an Arkansas Spring flood, like a hurricane downpour, unstoppable and urgent.
It will save every heart, crack the world wide apart, pour light into darkness, open minds, heal souls and change lives—especially yours.
It’s the gift you agreed to bring into this lifetime. Nobody else brought it. Only you. You signed up for this one—orchestrated the precise childhood to bring this gift to birth inside of you, designed the perfect pain to wake you up and break your heart wide open and turn everything you’ve learned into wisdom that sings in just this key, this chord, that nobody else can strike, that nobody else could possibly deliver, that nobody else is capable of sharing in your exact way.
When everyone brings their unique piece to the table, we all win. And right now everyone is wondering exactly where your piece is and when you’ll bring it to the puzzle, because your gift is the tipping point, the one we’ve all been waiting for, and it changes everything.
You Choose Your Final Story
What will your story be at the end? Will it be a tale of meaningless work and choices made from fear? Or will it be a grand and bold tale of courage, wisdom and laughter on the path less traveled? You get to choose.
Remember, it takes baby steps to climb any mountain. You may see what you came here to do, and the greatness of it may overwhelm you. You need to focus on what’s right in front of you today and ask, “What is one small step I can take today that will begin to turn my life in this new direction?”
If you ask that question every day and keep moving forward with little steps, you will always arrive where you’re meant to be—doing your great work.
If today you feel joyful about your career and are creating abundance—you’re on path. However, in a few years, change may be required. We all have many reinvention points in our lives that are designed to nudge us forward and help us kick it up to the next level.
Growth and change ARE required here. They’re part of our shared human experience. If you embrace these changes, trust your intuition rather than your monkey mind, and gracefully step up to the next level, your life just gets better and better.
Our broken hearts and disappointments are meant to wake us up to our great potential and help us reinvent and go in a new direction— the right direction. The more off-path we are, the greater the nudges will be.
If you’re a very old soul who came in to do great work and help raise consciousness (and you ARE), you’ll get big wake-up calls (job loss, divorce, bankruptcy, illness) until you stop hiding and start living true to your highest self. When you’re ready to listen, your intuition will guide you flawlessly in the right direction.
