Sometimes you begin new things when you decide you are ready. Other times new things come into your life when they are ready for you. You don't always need to try hard to make things happen. things will get easier when you wake up and realize that you are the one who is making your life hard by not listening to your inner guidance. You can remove resistance, and flow through life freely by deciding to be yourself and live from your value center. Life doesn't need to be hard, we make it hard, if you are good at something. Do that. Focus on all the good things and the rest will follow.
Align your ego with the truth of who you are.
Life isn't supposed to be hard, challenging yes. When you meet someone and everything seems easy, that's when it's real.
