One Little Ducky Is Enough (The Guidance I Keep On Giving)

one little ducky tara bliss

Making big decisions doesn’t come easily.

And I suppose it’s supposed to be that way. If it weren’t, we’d never experience the visceral gift of what it feels like – cellularly, psychologically – to move through and conquer our own limitations. And I guess they call that: courage.

Being stuck… Well, it sucks.

Blocked. Stagnant. Unsure. Confused. Clarity – seriously scarce. Lost. No.Bloody.Idea.

But I think we do a mighty fine job of throwing an odd spanner or two into that amalgamation of non-movement.

We insert expectation.

We expect that guidance should come to us at a time that suits us. At the right place. In the right way. And certainly, at the right time.

We expect our Soul Purpose to reveal itself to us magnificently and in a glaringly obvious fashion.

And we lace divinely timed opportunities with such words as: I’ll take action / I’ll follow my dreams / Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it’s important… but I want to wait until [insert major resistance/ distraction/ excuse here].

This is causing more than the odd ‘Ouch’ amongst the circles I travel in, so let’s explore this a little deeper in this week’s short video.

If you’ve ever wanted to wait until ‘all your ducks are in a row,’ this is for you.

 Spill the beans on your one little ducky, in the comments.

And please, if you’ve got some sisters out there who are pressing pause on their Soul’s desires, I encourage you to share this post with them.

PS: Let Us Feed You Organics – that little (big!) business venture I mentioned? It’s right here.

    The urge to get on a plane and spend some time in LA. Like, ASAP. That’s my ducky. Mediated on it. Reflected on it. Tried to talk myself out of it. That worked for like a month. Finally, took a risk in the form of a small loan and making 2 trips this year. Gotta travel the path, that ducky just keeps talking louder!! Working on letting go of expectation, the need to know ‘why’ or see ten steps down the road. As usual, a timely video. Love xx

    My one little ducky….I have been married for 8 months. I have known him for 20 years and dated for 10 years. Three weeks after our wedding, he told me he wanted a divorce. He is always saying I don’t want to be with you, you annoy me, I want a divorce. He has no interest in my life or passions. We still live like a married couple but I can’t take the negative and hurt anymore. One Ducky = all the things he says everyday. I want to leave but have been looking for signs of where to move to, fear of walking out with nothing (where I live if you haven’t been married for two years or more, I get nothing because his name is on it all). I pray it will get better but it never does and he has made it clear what he wants, not to be married. Of course there are still good time, few of them but enough for me to wonder if it will get better.
    The other situation in my life is I have been waiting for green lights to open my organic raw vegan food truck. I have a passion for healing your body through food and juicing. I healed myself from cancer with juicing and vegan life, instead of chemo. I love sharing the delicious pure love of a plant based lifestyle with the world. I went ahead and had a food truck built, it just sits in my driveway. I am now scared because I don’t know what I’m doing in my life, where I’m going and don’t have the confidence like I did. One Ducky = my passion, love, excitement for sharing this with everyone!!! Thank you so much for this beautiful video. I really do need to figure things out and stop waiting or I’m going to wait my life away. I have been saying for months now I am living in limbo and feel like my life is at a stand still. I want to live, I want to move forward. I am stuck because of my fear and confusion. I am not really scared just confused and well maybe scared of leaving. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me. I hope I listen and go with one Ducky and stop waiting for the sign that is already in front of me. I do always tell people, I’m waiting to get my ducks in a row lol. Have a beautiful day!!!

      Marcy, It sounds like your husband has something wrong with him. Have you considered that he could have online porn addiction it is an epidemic worldwide right now? If you are interested in learning more about it, you could read an exceptional book my friend wrote about it called Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow by Marnia Robinson. Hope this might help.

    • Kate June 8, 2015 at 4:55 pm #

      Hi Macy, you deserve SO much better than someone telling you ‘you annoy me’ ‘ i don’t want to be with you’…, please don’t ever forget that. Best of luck with your little ducky! A raw vegan food truck sounds amazing! xoxo

    My one little ducky – the thing that’s moving me forward in a time when I’m feeling a little confused – is my ability to make people feel good.

    And that one little ducky is so very, very powerful when I choose to remember him.

    Thanks for the beautiful guidance amazing lady. xx

    Hi Marcy, I feel for you and what you are going through you are stronger than you think. In fact you are amazing, so follow those dreams and take care of your happiness. Get yourself some smokey quartz and citrine. Shine brightly xxx

      Hi Sharon, Thank you so much for you kind, beautiful words. I truly appreciate it. ️Hugs & love!!!

  6. Katie April 19, 2015 at 12:42 pm #

    Perfect Tara. I have to share, thank you so much. “Ask yourself to be content”…I think so many of us wait for so many signs – you’re so right! xx. ps. hoping to come to your writing workshop!

  7. Michaela April 20, 2015 at 12:28 pm #

    So much YEAH!!! I love this, Tara. I definitely have been a ‘waiter’ in the past, thinking that I needed to wait for everything to be right in order to finally take the plunge and change my career/whole life. Then finally this year, I realised that it’s never all going to be right, and that part of my challenge here is to jump anyway; take the leap and have faith that it will all work out. Or even better, have faith that I will make it work. If it was all perfectly aligned, it wouldn’t be such a challenge and I don’t think it would be quite as meaningful to me. There’s some serious soul work going on here! But this post was such a good reminder, too. Thanks!

    My little ducky – that my gorgeous sister asked herself “what would tara do” when faced with a tricky decision. That and my ability to make women feel heard; That right there is what drives me. Beautiful video hun x

    Amazing. This must be the third or fourth blog post I’ve read in the past week with the same message… Something that has also been on my mind for a few weeks. I love this, and your beautiful way of capturing the feeling in words.
    My ducky is simply my desire for a happier future. To no longer wait for one thing to line up before I do what I want. To just say yes. Nothing’s going to change until I do. Thank you! xx

    My one little ducky came to me in meditation and has influenced every decision and choice I’ve made since. It’s the pure knowing that my soul purpose is being fulfilled and will come to complete fruition and beyond, every single time, piece by piece, as I trust and commit to myself fully. Faith is my ducky.

    I love the title and message of this post Tara.

    My little ducky…is that I want to host an intimate, soulful workshop for a group of women to come together to celebrate their uniqueness and spirit. I keep waiting for the ‘right time’ and for ‘other ducks to line up in a row’ when I already know I have all the tools I need to host an amazing workshop.

    Thank you for the divine guidance.

    P.S. It is so beautiful how much your face lit up and how much your smile widened when you were talking about Glen and his passion for cooking organic food. Good luck with Glenn’s and your venture with this – I know it’s going to be a success.

    Firstly you are a goddess! Every time I watch a video, it seems to relate to me with what I am passing through at that certain time of my life, you really put things into perspective for me.

    My little Ducky is defiantly nutrition, all things good for the body. This year I took a huge jump, I quit my second job and enrolled myself in a bachelor of Science. It has been hard, scary, stressful and full on, but I have never been prouder of myself, or loved what I was doing more.

    Thank you for being so inspiring! I look for you when things don’t seem to make sense and some how your videos always give me a sign!

    Shout Out to Marcy!
    Don’t stay in a bad relationship for the money! I work in finance, and it appears that if you have been in a domestic relationship (living together for a while) you would have more rights than you think.
    Talk about your options with a solicitor, definitely worth it 🙂

  16. Georgia April 23, 2015 at 5:30 pm #

    Beautiful + powerful message Tara! Love this.

    My take home message from this is, STOP looking for the ducks. They are already there.
    and keep it simple. Why am I making it all so difficult? And how do I want to look back on my life – fondly with all the things I tried or wondering what would’ve/ could’ve/ been??

    No more waiting or feeling stuck or looking for all the signs (ducks) to line up!

    Time to just go do it.

    Thanks for the inspiration gorgeous xx

    Thank you for this video. I felt resistance to watching it until now, after a meditation, and now I know why. It was literally exactly what I needed to hear at this moment right now! Seriously amazing 🙂
    Keep shining Tara xx

    So, I made some notes in my B-School notebook (yourself and Rach are very tied to my B-School learnings this year). I could have used this ‘talk’ every day since the age of about seven, I think.

    I’m a “let’s get my 10 duckies in a row, and then wait for a couple more, just for good measure”, sort of girl. I can think and think on something almost forever. Just waiting for it to reveal itself to me in absolute, in all of its mysteries. I find it so hard to step forward, with just one stone clear, instead of the whole path. However, the times in my life where I have done, I have always been rewarded. A reminder, now, to step. To start my blog, and through it, the steps towards a business I’m passionate about. Thanks, Tara. Sending grace xx P

    Amazing post Tara as always. my one little ducky for me at the moment is meditation, it’s really helping me to , as you said, learning to be content with where I am at now. Thank-you. Much love. xo
