I know what it's like to have so many different paths that you could choose to go down.
So many interests. So many different ways you could contribute.
The truth is: there is only one of you, only so many hours in the day, and only so much you really can achieve with your time, money, energy, and resources.
When there are so many things calling to your heart, it's achingly painful to make the choice.
When so many things seem to carry so much meaning for you - it can be excruciating to know which ones you have to let go.
I've been there. I'm currently there now.
So many ideas. So much frustration in deciding which ones to pursue, and which ones to lay aside.
But - I've learned something over the years that eases the growing pains.
There are ideas I wrote down in notebooks over five years ago, that are still just as relevant (and ripe with potential) today.
The best ideas I've ever had have never taken it upon themselves to disappear, never to show up in my heart again.
It's like they know. They know that the timing has to be right - the kind of timing that only the Universe can line up.
If it's meaningful, it will come back to you.
If you don't let it go, how will you know that it means something to you?
If it doesn't mean what you thought it did, then its purpose was to stay with you for a season - to offer you an experience, a new perspective, a step-up in another direction.
If it turns out that it is, actually, incredibly meaningful - you can rest assured that those are the ones that never get away.
Concepts. Layouts. Thoughts. Offerings. Taglines. Business names. URLs. Blog post ideas. Tweets. Instas.
They all count.
The reality may be that there is only so much you can accomplish - but that doesn't mean that you have to sacrifice it all to get there.
Relax, and let it go.
Give it the space it needs to breathe.
If it means something, you'll know.
Maybe not now, not tomorrow, not in the next year.
But you'll know.
Ps. The best ones are worth waiting for.
