Make a Life, Not Just a Living

April 24, 2012

Life is too short to NOT love what you do. Period.

But we do it anyway. We plug away unhappily doing things day-in and day-out. We sit at our desks idly pushing paper and responding to emails. We work hard to clear off our desk but not as hard at asking ourselves if we actually enjoy the life we have created for ourselves. We keep plugging away at our unhappiness and telling ourselves that “one day it will be better.” Newsflash… it never gets better until you do something about it. If you stay contented in the position you have put yourself in, then that is what you continue to receive. In essence, you are telling the universe, “oh, don’t worry about me, I do not need change. I am content here. All is good.”

Life is meant to be LIVED. Truly lived and experienced and ENJOYED. There is no waiting for one day to magically appear. There is no waiting to live. The living is now. Why waste precious moments doing anything that you do not love? Why not find what you love and focus on that? Why tell yourself that you can’t do that and make up a whole host of reasons why you are not qualified?

Life is in the living. It happens every day in every moment. While you are sitting back waiting to be happy, remember right now IS your life. If you are not happy in the now, CHANGE THINGS. Don’t wait for a magic miracle in the future. The miracle is happening now.

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 […]
