Life is a Work in Progress

October 10, 2016

… because it EVOLVES each and every day.

And that’s a good thing.

Because you’re NEVER DONE and you can NEVER GET IT WRONG. 

There is nowhere you have to be in life but RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE. Every day is a step FORWARD along your path. Every day is another opportunity to recreate yourself anew. You are always a work in progress, NEVER the finished product.

And you wouldn’t want to be a finished product, because if you stop growing, evolving and changing, you become stuck, stagnant and irrelevant to yourself and others. Being a work in progress keeps you fresh, excited, stimulated and dynamic. Sure it might be scary, but it will deepen your experience of life. It keeps you on your toes, exploring yourself and growing/expanding in new ways every day.

Be a work in progress because uncertainty breeds creativity and expansion whereas certainty will stifle curiousity and KILL creativity and expansion. After all, if you think you have all the answers, you naturally stop seeking. And when you stop seeking, you stop living.

Don’t accept the status quo.

Don’t accept habit.

Don’t accept routine.

Be extraordinary. Be content with not having all the answers, BE A WORK IN PROGRESS, it’s the only place where real expansion and real happiness lie.

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 […]
