One of my biggest struggles in life is being present. The other struggle I face? Knowing what to do next with full certainty and confidence.
Yes, I struggle with anxiety and I've shared about that before. But what I've learned is my anxiety often stems from the unknown. From the things I cannot control. From life pulling me forward while also trying to be present. From the comparison trap of seeing what everyone else is doing and questioning, "should I be doing that too?"
Odds are, you struggle to be present or you struggle to take your next steps. Maybe it's a bit of both (join the club with me if that's you!).
Whatever changes life is bringing, whatever situation is causing you to feel stuck, unprepared or unsure, or whatever decision you are facing: you aren't walking along.
And that's why I started this journey of creating The Way Forward podcast.
When I write, blog or speak, I do so from the heart, from the things I've experienced. And what I've realized is that so many other people struggle with the same things I do. We dream big and don't know how to get there. We're in a new season but can't firmly grasp what's in front of us. We're about to transition from high school to college or college to adulthood and are terrified of what's ahead. We want to feel seen. We want to feel heard. We want to feel known.
Every Monday, I'll be dropping a new episode discussing topics that honestly we all struggle with. And everything discussed will be something either I, or our guests, have faced. The hope and prayer behind this is that you will be able to rest in the present while being equipped for the way forward: finding your support group, clarity and confidence in the process.
The trailer dropped today - October 18th - and episodes will begin Monday, October 25th. You can check out the trailer now and be sure to subscribe to stay up to date with episodes! Want to submit a topic suggestion or question? Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
