How many turns have you had in life? Maybe you’re in a turning phase right now. Hold on, you’re in for a ride that will have something for you no matter where you wind up. And through every bump, I want you to know that nothing is wasted.
There was a time when I thought my life was linear. I followed a series of steps to get where I wanted to go and I got there – until the curves hit. Then for a number of years it felt like life stuttered or stalled with every step.
I look back at the choices I made to arrive where I am today, and while there’s no doubt I could have made decisions that would have been FAR easier, here I am. Every move created the next shift.
The idea that nothing is wasted gives you that confidence to approach everything with curiosity.
You walk out to get the mail and wind up in a longer than expected conversation with a neighbor. Nothing is wasted.
The demo you worked so hard to put together has required much more research and time than anticipated. Nothing is wasted.
You have to change your schedule when the school calls to inform you your child is sick. Nothing is wasted.
The next time you encounter a circumstance that takes you off course, may these three small words emerge in your vision: nothing is wasted.
And continue on with your next move.
You’ve got this.
