Hello everyone! I hope all is well with you. I’m back today after a busy week at work. I have a big exam coming up next week so I’m going to spend the weekend studying for it and hopefully I’ll be ready to go when the time comes. Cross your fingers for me!
But enough about that. Today I’d like to talk about being true to ourselves and walking our path even when we’re going against the crowd. You see, we grow and change on our journey. We become strong. People in our lives see these changes and sometimes they don’t embrace them, they liked the old you.
However, you like the new you. There’s nothing more self-confirming than realizing you’re moving in the right direction. When you’re on the right path, it will resonate with you and you’ll feel like everything is possible.
So, don’t be afraid to change, the people in your life will adjust and hopefully they will grow along with you. You see we’re all connected and what one of us does affects all of us.
Continue striving on your path. It’s sending positive energy out to the rest of us, and just maybe you’ll be a role model for someone who’s struggling along their path. Maybe they’ll see you moving forward and it’ll give them the courage to step forward as well.

I’ve found that I am the happiest when I’m working toward my own goals. Striving toward your own dreams stops you from comparing yourself to others. You’re so busy moving forward that you don’t have time to check out what your neighbors and friends are doing. You’re happier.
Are you moving in the right direction? How did you find something that resonated with you? Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you!
**Sorry for the short post. I’ve got to get back to studying. I hope all of you have a great weekend and I’ll be back next week! 😊

Great post, Lisa! I’m definitely moving in the right direction, though I hit speed bumps and take detours now and then. LOL! Best wishes on your exams too. What are you taking? Anything writing related? Cheers!
Thanks for stopping by, Sharon. I appreciate your wishing me luck on my exam. No nothing writing related. It’s related to my new job. 🙂
Inspiring post, Lisa! 🙂
Thanks, Arv! I appreciate your kind words. Thanks for stopping by! ❤
Solid message of positivity Lisa. My apologies too. I’ve been missing recently so haven’t caught up with you in ages. Good look with that exam too. I’m sure you’ll do really well.
Thanks, Gary! No worries about not catching up. Life sure does get busy, that’s for sure. We’re all glad you’re back. 🙂 ❤
Thanks Lisa, the blogging community has been excellent with support too. Now if folk that don’t Blog were half as good at that then the world might be less negative and more mindful of others around them. Ooh, #SoapBoxSunday 😂
You are so right!!
It resonated for me when you wrote working towards your goals and dreams. I agree it does make you an example to other people. A friend told me recently she admired me because I had was always active and making things happen. That lead to a discussion about what she wanted and her possibilities. Always a good read. Good luck on exam.
Trying to move in that direction! Good luck with studying x
Thank you! I appreciate it!
Thank you! 🙂
Nice post Lisa…..yes, going in the right direction is one thing which everyone aspires for and prepares for…and it feels good if you are being able to do that constantly..:)
You are so right! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Lovely, thought provoking post Lisa – I’m sharing it tomorrow on my Monday blog share feature xxx
Awww….thanks, Claire! You’re so sweet! 🙂
You are so welcome x
Lisa, I always enjoy your words of wisdom, and they all seem to resonate with me in one way or another. Now that I’m in the late 30’s, my kids are more independent, and I have a little bit more time to myself, I find myself changing little-by-little. I’m finding things that I love to do, I’m setting goals, and I find myself dreaming a little more. I’m taking time to write, paint, and finish projects around the house, and I’m happy! I look forward to what the future brings. Great post, Lisa!
I’m so happy for you! Thanks for stopping by. I love your art work so I’m sure I’d love your writing. Looking forward to reading some of it some day. 🙂
Lovely positive post Lisa. 🙂
Thanks, Marje! I appreciate you stopping by!
Hope you can drop by and leave this wonderful post at my blog party, Lisa (you can also leave links to social media, books, etc. or others’ posts – none need to be Halloweenla). https://yadadarcyyada.com/2018/10/26/the-more-the-scarier/
Hope this week treats you kindly. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by! I’ll stop by and drop my post for your party! 🙂
Thanks for sharing my post, Claire! You’re awesome!
Such a relevant post, Lisa! Wishing you the best with the exam 🙂
Thank you! ❤
The moment I started writing was when I began to fly! I’ve never looked back and still find it strange that there was a time in my life (the vast majority of my life!) that writing wasn’t part of.
I’m so glad you’re enjoying your writing! I didn’t start writing until later in life either and my theory is that I had to experience life so I could write about it. Maybe that’s why you didn’t start writing until later, too. 🙂
You could be onto something there!
