We are right on the cusp of Thanksgiving, which means that the Holidays are definitely upon us. We are all scrambling to make everything perfect and end the year better than we did last year. We start to think about what we did not accomplish and how we never get what we want. We start to beat ourselves up for all the missed opportunities and adventures we did not say yes too.
Why is it that we are so hard on ourselves every day of every year? Why can’t we just one time realize how far we have come and how much we have actually accomplished? Why do we measure ourselves up to all the perceived failures we have had?
Think about these questions for a minute…Why do we? Who taught us how to loath so much about ourselves? Who put the bar so high that it is difficult to achieve the standards in our life?
All the answers reside in our own self; we have taught our own self we are not good enough to do something on our own, we must follow others. We have our own special gifts and talents; even though someone else has done something it does not mean we can only follow others. We have the ability to pave our own way. There is more than one way to do any given thing; we just have to have the courage to do it our way.
Once we start to live on our own terms and not everyone else’s terms, we will be truly living our own lives. We don’t have to wait, we can start living right now; calling our own shots and making our own choices and sticking to what we want.
It’s time for us to start looking at what it is that we want in our lives and what we want to create. We need to quit listening to everything that does not fall into our plan. We all have our own ways of living…let’s quit judging and start doing what is for our own highest good.
Don’t wait til tomorrow, START RIGHT NOW!!!
Have an amazing day my friends.
