When you suddenly have an idea that you are excited about, that is Divine guidance.

You have desires for a reason, they are there to Divinely guide you if you are up for the challenge.

You can also let that desire dwindle into nothing, that’s totally up to you.

When you make a choice to commit to fulfilling a desire in your life the growth that happens along the way is phenomenal.

In fact, your desires are the catalyst for you to learn your lessons. They provide an opportunity to tap into your wisdom.

The next time you’re in a situation where you are tempted to make the safe predictable choice, ask yourself:

Keep in mind where you are in your life is the result of all the decisions you have made in the past.

Choose wisely.
