You know when you’re trying to finish a project or creation and it just doesn’t seem to be happening? Maybe life’s too busy or you’re too tired- you just never seem to have the energy or inspiration to follow through on it?
This week I had a major epiphany regarding a creation I’ve been working on for years that has still never come to fruition.
What happened was that I connected with my deepest desires and purpose and I got a lightning bolt flash of clarity and insight.
That project was not coming to life because it was not an authentic expression of my true purpose and desire. After years of working on it, I realized I had felt it was something I was supposed to be creating, not something that I truly desired to create.
As soon as I realized this, I saw that this project was never going to come to life and I was completely relieved to be able to let go of it.
This is the second time this has happened to me recently and the truth I’ve discovered is this:
The things you are not meant to be giving your energy to are the things that are draining the most energy from you without giving any back.
There’s a caveat here that’s important to note: Having one of these draining projects could be keeping your energy too low to work on your true passion projects as well.
You’ll have to look closely and be honest with yourself about which projects are which. In the case of the creation I had been working on for years, I had convinced myself that it was a passion project. The truth is, it no longer was- and maybe it never really had been. Either way, it was time to let it go and move on.
