Saw this is my feed yesterday – it resonates so much with me, especially right now! I’m getting there, I’m not settling and if someone had told me 10 years ago, this would be my life, I would have laughed in their face and said to them -‘no way’.
There’s been a few obstacles in my path of course but I kept my passions and dreams alive and still do. People often say to me, ‘you’re so lucky’, or ‘it’s alright for some’ or ‘you have a great life’ or ‘I wish I had your life’ etc.
However, I created this life, it didn’t just happen over night, it wasn’t luck! – I decided not to settle!
Whether you are young or old, you don’t have to settle! Of course there are times in our lives when settling is necessary, like when I was bringing up my children for instance, but its also so easy to fall into that trap…same old, same old etc.
Then there never seems to be a right time to do the things that you’ve always wanted to, your passions, your dreams, adventure, travel and the things that make you happy etc etc.
For me, I took a bit fat chance, I literally left all that I knew and changed the direction of my life in a big way. It was terrifying at the time and boy, it wasn’t easy. I left my marriage, I lost friends, had no money and had to start again in a different place,a different home and as a single parent. I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am today but I can honestly say I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I love my life again, Im in a happy relationship, I have wonderful friends and I do what I love, that also involves travelling to exotic locations around the globe and sharing what I love most in the world – yoga – and I get paid for it! WTF – But, this didn’t just happen, I made this happen. My passion and my dream is now my reality and even though I’m now in my 50’s, I still have more aspirations to work towards, I’m keeping them alive every day.
So don’t ever give up people – keep that dream alive, manifest it daily, that means think it, say it out loud and most of all believe it and you’ll get there. Don’t settle if you’re not feeling happy or fulfilled, make a plan, hold out for what you deserve, you are worth it.
I am living proof – sometimes I have to pinch myself 😉
