Are you concerned that your best days are behind you; that the rest is going to be downhill from here? If you don’t make any changes to take your life back, that absolutely may be the case!
As we age, it is true that our lives, health and outlook changes, but our spirit and life do not need to grow old and weary. You can keep that same wonder and amazement for the world that you felt as a child if you choose to keep it. The world is filled with undiscovered things and experiences that are waiting for you to see, feel and hear them!
There was a time in my life where I had no plan or goals. I was floating along waiting for life to happen to me. Each day went by without purpose and although I may have had fun, I found that I was living my life based on what everyone else thought I should do or thought should be important to me. This left me feeling empty, unsatisfied with life and completely lost.
So I vowed to take my life back and made it my own. The universe had given me a blank canvas and I was going to make it the beautiful life that I felt it could be. For all of the things that I wanted to try, but told myself things like “I can’t” or “I’d like to try that, but”, I started to seriously ask myself “Why Not”?
If my answer was that I just didn’t have the skills or knowledge to do these things yet, then I went out and got myself the skills and knowledge.
If my answer was because I had held myself back from doing them based on something that someone had said or because of fear of looking silly, it wasn’t even an option – I was doing them! To prove to myself that I could.
For instance, I was TERRIFIED of singing…seriously terrified. I had someone close to me once tell me how bad my singing voice was and this moment scarred me. I didn’t allow myself to sing, ever from that point forward. I told myself that I couldn’t do it. Then one day, I decided that was enough of that. I found a voice instructor who helped me to find my voice and find that it could actually sound pretty good. I will never perform in front of millions (and I don’t have a desire to), but I can now go to Karaoke and enjoy myself with the rest of them!
What did I find when I started doing more and more of these things that were important to me?
More importantly…could you feel these same results? Absolutely! Here are 5 easy steps to starting to creating a plan for your life:
Important: For every action item for a goal or entire goal that you achieve, stop for a moment to breathe in and celebrate your achievement and hard work! Then prepare yourself to move on to your next action item until you have achieved that goal!
Keep your bucket list handy and once you have completed one goal, select the next most important goal and repeat the process.
What to do when your fear and self-doubt starts chattering to your head?
Remember: You can do this.
You are just as worthy of happiness as anyone else.
You have a unique combination of skills, strengths and potential and the universe needs you to share those beautiful, special gifts that you have to offer.
We may stumble from time to time as we work towards our goals and that is ok; please continue to take tiny steps forward.
I believe that everyone in this world deserves the opportunity to be happy – so please make the space for yourself to do that. The truth is that the only person who can truly make you happy is you…no one else is going to do that for you.
