How do we separate ourselves from what we feel, or think is expected of us, to discover that for which our heart truly yearns?
So many of us are burned out and bewildered just trying to keep up - but being the naturally innovative, creative and resourceful adults that we are, how do we separate ourselves from what we feel, or think is expected of us, to discover that for which our heart truly yearns?
Isn’t life about finding the courage to live life on your terms, ‘your life, your way’ with kindness to yourself?
It’s not about inane positive thinking, it’s about finding creative ways to thrive by grappling with your inner demons and finding a way to let go of past conditioning so we can ponder some big questions – like who we are and what we want?
I understand more than most that life has a habit of veering off-piste. And I know – my life will continue to have its ups and downs (like a grown up version of snakes and ladders), each passing year appears harder and more challenging than the one that came before.
Whether you are experiencing a general malaise with the way your circumstances look right now, or life has thrown you a major curveball in the form of illness or loss, anyone can choose to refuel and rebuild a sense of optimism and hopefulness.
I think as humans we are defined by our belief of what is possible. The moment we change our mindset, we change everything!
What blocks our sense of possibility is being locked into a faulty belief system.
Can you challenge the stories that you are telling yourself?
If you’re focusing on the negative, ask yourself “How realistic are these stories really?”.
Pay close attention to all the excuses and justifications that you tell yourself. Follow those who are doing what you want to do, always look for the evidence to reinforce your feeling of possibility.
