I have always loved this quote and am a big believer of it. We all have the capability of imagining and using our amazing brain to bring the most beautiful joy into our worlds. So why do we waste precious moments, hours, sometimes years and decades going over the same old thoughts which do not serve us any longer and end up keeping us stuck in a point in time with no hope of moving forward?
It was not until I have got to this stage of my life to realise that our ‘thoughts really do become things’ Meaning that what we think about on a daily basis becomes our reality. This may seem quite ‘wild‘ and ‘out there‘ for some people, however after 50 years on this earth I know this to be true.
Have I mastered it yet? Hell no!
But I am determined to spend the rest of my life trying …
I sit here tonight knowing that its the hardest thing in the world to do and it should be so damn easy if we did not have an ego getting in our way. This ego we all have helps to create doubt which creeps into your mind, that perhaps we are not good enough or to reach for something too high is silly or that just couldn’t happen to me. These thoughts are harmful, that little voice telling you it cant be done stops so many of us from moving forward and reaching for our dreams.
Imagine your life the way you would love to live it,
This is how I intend to spend the rest of my life. Now that we have closed the door on our Melbourne life, I am heading into the unknown. I dont know where my next (day) job will be but I do know what I want to do for the rest of my life. Lately I have begun to listen to the soft whispers of what it is I think I should be doing which is help people live their best life. I love talking about it, I love learning about it and I love writing about it. I want to be able to help others who also want to live their best lives but just need to learn the tools of where to begin, this is what life coaching is all about, learning how to hone in on the passion in our lives and then creating what we deem to be our best lives.
Many years ago, I would have been about 38, working at La Trobe University in another admin position, I said to a colleague that once I turned 50 I was going to follow my true path. Its funny that it sometimes takes this long to really work out what it is you are meant to be doing. Well, that time is here and its time to see where this dream may take me…
I have seen and experienced first hand so many of us on this treadmill of life, going back and forth each day to jobs which suck the life out of us, hurting our souls and all for what, at the end of it all are we truly happy? I know I am not. I can say without a doubt that my current work, although I am terribly grateful to have is the least pleasurable thing I do with my life and ironically its where I spend most of my time – I’d call that crazy if I was speaking to someone else!
I now have a chance to fix
what is wrong in my world…
and to finally claim
what it is
that I believe I am meant to do…
Today, I placed a deposit on a course I have wanted to do ever since I worked out what it was all those years ago. It is one step closer to the authentic me and what I believe my true path is for this life, it brings everything I love to do together in such a neat concept, its about encouraging, inspiring, helping others create a life they only imagine,
I often imagine in my mind what this new path can bring into my life and what I can help others do, its scary and exciting at the same time and I have been hesitant in putting myself out there, but know I need to just surrender and let the universe carry me to where I am meant to be going…
its in the surrendering that life shows us its magic…
Over the next 10 months I will be busily studying my new course and learning my way to a new world which I hope will open up for me and help pave my future as well as the future of those who have ever wondered,
Is this as good as it gets?
So… in the words of the great novelist &poet C.S.Lewis,
I just wanted to remind anyone reading this as we are nearing
the end of one year and heading into the next…
Wish me luck xx
