7/21/2016: Searching

A reminder that that you get in life what you're willing to settle for and you are the designer of your own life. $25 giclee print available at the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

I’ve been working almost daily on wrapping up the new branding for Made Vibrant, but for the past few days I just couldn’t shake this nagging feeling that something was missing, that it wasn’t quite complete yet. So I kept searching, kept pushing, kept exploring, not quite certain of what I was looking for, but knowing for sure that it just wasn’t there yet.

Then today, the final piece came to me, the missing part of the puzzle that suddenly made everything else make sense. I was so grateful to myself that I listened to my gut and kept searching until I found what I was looking for.

Over the past few years, I’ve learned that life is a delicate, constant balance between striving forward and appreciating what’s right in front of you. There are moments when we need to press on, and moments when we need to say “that’s enough.” I know this.

BUT, I also know that we get in life what we’re willing to settle for. We receive what we’re willing to go out and get. So if there’s one area of you’re life that is calling to you, one thing that feels out of place, not just right quite yet (that job, that house, that relationship), well then keep on keepin’ on, my dear friend. Keep searching, keep striving, and don’t stop until you arrive at what you’re looking for. It’s not about perfection — we all know there is no such thing as a perfect ANYTHING — but it IS about claiming ownership of the reality you want to create.

You are the designer of your own life and you get to say when it’s time to stop and when it’s time to keep going.
