It’s easy to look at your life and feel that things aren’t going to plan. It’s easier still to find all the things to blame for this detour on your journey. I hate to be the one to say it, but it may be time to take a stand and get back into the driver’s seat.
If we wait for things to get better on their own, we could be waiting a while…and as we all know, time might not be something we have too much of if all the doomsayers are correct. Wouldn’t you rather know that you did all you could to create the life of your dreams? Wouldn’t you sleep better with the knowledge that you have taken the day into your hands and steered it (all you could) in the direction of your visions?
The time is now.
Now, if you’ve managed as a passenger most of your life, this shift into becoming the driver is not going to be the easiest one, but once you’re there and the proverbial open road lays ahead of you, there should be nothing stopping you from reaching your destination.
The first step is to decide what it is you actually want, or where it is you want to go. And you are the only one who knows it, even if you don’t think you do. ‘If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favourable’, so map out your journey and have faith that you will get there.
Meeting people and having rewarding relationships is an important and unavoidable part of life and makes this journey all the more worthwhile. So ask yourself if the people in your life are the right ones and if not, get out there and find them. Having a loving and compatible partner is not the only thing there is to make a person happy, but it sure helps. Just like having money doesn’t bring joy, but it makes it a lot easier to live a life without pressure.
Be in charge this year of finding all the pieces you need in your life to make things easier, better, more exciting, more satisfying and most of all more enjoyable because if you don’t, who will?
