We’ve all been told lately in the media that we should follow our passions and follow our dreams and go after whatever it is that we want.
But some of us are really just living. We’re going through the motions; we’re going day in and day out doing the tasks that we have to do: get the kids up, get the kids ready, get ourselves dressed, laundry, dishes, dinner, career, meetings blah, blah, blah.
If you continue this path where you’re no longer choosing yourself first, you will wake up one day with any or all of these situations:
a.) your children going off to college
b.) your children have gone off and gotten married
c.) or maybe you find yourself completely alone and you wonder…
“Oh my God, is this it?”
One hand up, two hands up if this is you.
Your entire life, you’re pushing and going and driving and forcing everything to happen over and over and over and over again and then, nothing. One day you will wake up and you have reality slap you in the face and say, “HEY, this is what you’ve created and this is all you’ve got.”
But it doesn’t have to be this bad. You don’t have to go through life just feeling that you must do all these things and never take care of yourself. You can choose to move everything around. Remember you’re the one who created it and you can create something different if you want.
The funny thing is, it’s very simple to transform your life.
Step One: Decide.
When you decide that you’re going to change your life (if you have an open mind and understand that things will just start coming to you because you made the decision), that’s when the world becomes an unbelievable place.
Once you have made the decision, you can now walk forward to a place that you will love to be in.
What is it that makes your heart sing?
What have you loved to do in the past that you haven’t done in years? Hell, maybe even a decade?
Let’s imagine again and break free from this place of unhappiness.
Step Two: Do It.
Take 5 minutes each morning and dream, imagine what you loved to do when the world was only about you. Do you remember what it was like to have you?
Start this journey and sit there for a while. Note how amazing things will just start happening for you.
