Looking back on my life it is amazing to see how far I have come and how much I've grown. When I was younger I was so stubborn and willful that it took some pretty difficult lessons before I started to listen to what the universe was trying to tell me.
You know how that works - at first it's that quiet little voice inside that tells you what feels right and what doesn't. When you don't pay attention, it gets louder and louder until it presents itself as a big issue in your life and you can no longer ignore it. I really didn't know there was any other way to live. Perhaps I have finally matured to a point that now I know there is a better way for me to experience changes in my life without all of the pain and disappointment.
Now when I get that gentle nudge from the universe, I sit up and pay attention. If I listen closely, it comes softly as a question to be answered not a problem to be solved.
