When we are young, we are taught to “color neatly and stay inside the lines.” Unfortunately that mentality stays with us and can wreak havoc on our social psyches. It encourages conformist behavior. Even though we may want to push the envelopes in our careers and in our lifestyles, there may be this nagging reminder that maybe we shouldn’t go there – it’s too risky, too left of center and not everyone will think highly of it. In essence, sometimes we sell out. And why? Because we have been taught that the “right” path (or socially accepted one) should be one of comfort and stability and not fraught with risk and uncertainty.
But who is to say what is right on one person’s path versus another? In life, there are no right or wrongs – there are just different experiences. It helps to know that you can NEVER make a wrong turn, you can just choose a different path. When we push ourselves to be who we are and not live our lives for others, we connect to the universal flow of life. This keeps us young and vital and of course, very happy. It is only when we turn our back on our passions and dreams, that we will fall off our paths. Live your life on your terms. If you push yourself to be the best YOU you can be, then life rewards you richly. It is in sitting back and letting life pass you by that you lose the meaning and purpose of your life. Reclaim your power. Set your intentions for your life and live it on your terms.
