Be Careful What You Wish For

May 26, 2015

Be Careful What You Wish For… you just might get it.

And do you really want it is the question?

It’s easy to “glamorize” the past and miss what you no longer have, but in reality, if you no longer have it, it is because you are done with it.

When you are in a healthy place in your life and you keep walking forward, you find that what the future brings you is MUCH better than what you left behind. But sometimes we are too focused on looking behind us and getting stuck in the negative energy of the past, so we inadvertently prevent the future from every reaching us. By doing this, we create a painful lull for ourselves which only intensifies our “glamorization of the past.” When the future does not come quick enough, we tend to look back over our shoulder and question the past.

But here’s the deal. If it is in your past, it is there for a reason. If it was meant to be in your present, it would be standing right in front of you and if it is meant to be part of your future, it will find you when it is time.

Be careful what you wish for, it is easy to go back to dysfunctional places for fear that nothing better may come. But that does not help you evolve. If you are conscious, your life is meant to improve as you walk your path forward. Just because you know and recognize what is behind you doesn’t make it right for you. And just because you cannot yet see the future doesn’t mean its NOT there for you. Always look forward, looking behind you will just run you into a tree. Be careful what you wish for… you might just get it and chances are, you really don’t want it anymore.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
