What are you doing with your life?
Stop and ask yourself that question.
Are you playing small? Are you shrinking back into the woodwork so nobody notices you? Are you just barely making it through each day?
Or are you living with intention? With huge goals and dreams that you are fervently chasing after? Are you living boldly?
Sometimes these are hard questions for us to ask ourselves. It’s easy to see it in everyone else. It’s easy to give that advice and tell people to take risks and make changes. But to do it ourselves is a whole other ball game!
I’ve touched on it before but it’s so vitally important to keep talking about it. We have ingrained in us these beliefs of how things should work.
Graduate high school. Go to college. Graduate college. Get a job with your degree. Find a suitable partner and get married. Then start having babies. All while living in a little house with a white picket fence.
Now. I don’t know about you, but my life certainly didn’t go as scripted. I did the first four of the above but that’s about it. And I don’t even have a job with my degree anymore. So there’s that.
But that’s neither here nor there. The point is...that is NOT the only way to do things.
You don’t have to do things in any certain order to be successful. Or to be happy. You don’t have to go to college to be successful. You don’t have to get married and have kids to be happy. And you certainly don’t have to live in a house with a white picket fence.
We live in a world where we can now choose to make our own paths. We don’t have to follow a set script. We don’t have to do things the “normal” way. We get to choose!!
And how amazing is that?!
But...back to the first question. What are you doing with your life?
You get to choose what to do...how to be successful...what to do to make you happy.
So... Are you?
What choices are you making? Are you getting up and going to that ho hum 9-5 job you hate, just because that’s what you’re supposed to do? Are you watching other people’s lives in envy because you wish you could change yours?
Guess what?! You CAN! You have that power and that control.
Let me back up...now I’m not telling you to quit your job just because you hate it or you only go because it’s what you’re supposed to do. What I am telling you is that there are so many other options out there. Find one that drives you...that motivates you to get up and go to work happy every day.
Do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.
Make the choices. Make some changes if you need to. But live boldly. Live with purpose and intention.
Don’t let life pass you by, hoping and wishing for something different. Go out and make it happen now, before it’s too late.
I hope you all have an awesome week. And live boldly, starting today!
With love and wellness,
