Do you hear the music?

Think of your favorite song, a song that ignites something in you every time you hear it. 

Whether it be joy, a happy memory, or a deep feeling of inner peace, when this song is played you forget about everything else going on in your life. As if it takes you to a completely different life.

Now what if you could hear that song all the time? You’re probably thinking “Well I’d probably get sick of hearing the same thing over and over again”. But what if this music you were hearing wasn’t so much a song but something that changed the way you live your life?

When you hear this music it makes you want to get out of bed, dance around, do morning yoga, quit your draining job, and create the life you’ve always wanted. It makes you want to become your future self. Even if the music changes, it’s slow some days, it’s upbeat and fast some others, that music brings you back to your core.

We often learn the dance steps to life, religion, relationships, work, etc, but have you ever danced without music? Yeah, it’s fun for like two seconds and then it gets a little weird. Maybe you’re into that, but after a while you’ll feel drained, confused why you were even dancing. Wondering why you do what you do every day. It becomes a blind routine that often leads to burnout, frustration, depression, constant confusion, and having no idea who you truly are or what you believe. Uh hello?! Notice how none of those things are positive things.

When I decided to put everything I had into this dream business of mine I did not slow down one bit. I got all my licensing done, hired a web developer, started business coaching, and designed and created products. I was amazed at how much I was capable of doing. 

But things started to slow down. I got discouraged by the lack of orders I was expecting. I was living in the past, questioning myself, if I made a mistake. So I took a step back. I stopped trying to force myself to work on my business. I stopped forcing myself to be social, to work out, to do all the things I “should” be doing. I was doing the dance steps but had completely lost sight of why I was doing it.

I told myself I would focus on connecting with myself and God. Reconnect with my purpose. I spent an amazing week in Banff, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. I journaled, read books, explored incredible places, shopped a little too much, and made some awesome friends. I was living a dream I put on my vision board 6 months ago with no idea how I’d get there.

But I made it.

Like most vacations, it was over before I knew it. Sitting in the hot Utah sun waiting to be picked up and taken back to real life (ugh), I received a text from the Banff group chat;

“Love this entire incredible group. Thank you for these core memories that will last a lifetime ❤️”

My heart just burst reading that. Teary-eyed (even if it was because I had to wake up at 4:45) I heard that music. You know, the music that makes you want to get up and dance?
