Comes the high of completion.
The joy of celebration.
And the space that opens up when you ask, "What happens next?"
That space is gorgeous & also a little bit unnerving. Especially after you've been working towards that goal for sooooo long.
Sometimes the next steps are already clearly laid out for you. But when they're not? That question of "What next?" Can feel so big & full of possibility it's almost overwhelming.
Dreaming has always been my favourite stage of planning though. Here's what I do when I'm faced with the wide open space left after achieving a big goal. I close my eyes & take a deep breath. Feel the vastness of where I could go next...and wait.
It can take weeks, months even to find the next dream. And I'm SO not the most patient person...waiting for that big vision can feel like AGONY. But I've learned these in-between times are there to strengthen our trust. Trust that the Universe has my back. Trust that everything will work out (usually better than I intended). Trust in myself & my ability to really listen.
When you get quiet & willing to follow your intuition anywhere it leads - inspiration steps in & hands you the thread of curiosity to follow. And suddenly you're off on the next adventure with a big vision & a big dream to fuel the next goal.
