Don’t like where your life is going?
I have had that feeling so many times throughout my life. I don’t like where I am at in my life. Where it is going? I want to change it, but… I wish I could do things differently, but…
Many of those times I went with the flow and continued guiding my life, as if it belonged to someone else; as if other people’s choices were my only choice in life.
I do not believe I understood, really, from the inside out, that my life belonged to me, that whether someone made a choice for me or I made it myself, I would be the one living through [the] consequence of that choice.
How about you? Have you been there? Are you there right now?
Let me tell you that this is a very important point to ponder about. We tend to complain when we suffer the consequences of our own actions. Many times we just do what others do, or simply react rather than act. We are the ones that stay in an unhealthy relationship, or in a job with no future.
We are the ones compromising without really putting our personal value as a person or general values in a proper place. We are the ones that do not set boundaries. Therefore, I want to invite you to take some time to think about where you are in life. Relationships, job, dreams, goals, etc. I would suggest that you write it all down and read and re-read your list. You will notice that tomorrow, you will find something new within the context of what you have written.
Act rather than react through life.
You can become aware of your actions and make a conscious decision the next time you are faced with choices. When you take time to think or meditate on your values and your human value; as well as what boundaries are healthy and or acceptable for you, it will be so much easy to tap into that information in your brain.
The next time you are faced with a broken boundary or an unhealthy behavior, you will be able to have this new information right fresh from a new folder in your brain and it will be much easier for you to choose consciously (act), rather than following a thoughtless behavior or acting instinctively (react).
Therefore, know that there is always a choice and that you have the right and the responsibility to take charge and give direction to your precious live. “You Matter”
With much love,
