What are you afraid of, I mean really afraid of? What holds you prisoner? What would you do if money, time constraints, and the expectations of others were not issues? (And why the heck are they issues anyway)?! Are you living your life in a way that you are proud to model for your children? Would your wishes for them be fulfilled if they adopted your patterns? Have you created a well lived life that would leave you with no regrets if you found yourself on your deathbed tomorrow? What are your priorities? Do your words, thoughts, and actions line up with them? If not, why?
Take a moment and really play out the scenario. Are you living your best life possible? Do you feel joyful and alive? If not, what do you want to change?
What would it look like if you stopped giving your time and energy to people and systems that teach you how not to think, speak, or behave? What if you decided to stop jumping through hoops, to stop trying to live up to others' expectations, to stop doing things that you don’t care about, and to stop justifying things that waste your precious life energy? What if you decided to weigh your options a little differently from here on out before making decisions, to stop functioning on autopilot, and to start making choices that move you closer to your goals? What do you need to walk away from? What do you need to seek out and embrace?
