Living NOW, the life you want.

     I see lots of people doing things they don't enjoy or settling for a situation that is not making them happy. Whether it is your job, your living space, your friends, your boyfriend, or your self-care routine, it is vital that the choices you make contribute to your happiness. There was a time in my life when literally everything I was doing was not matching with the life I actually wanted. My mind, spirit and body were giving me signs for a long time that I was not happy, but it took a breakdown to make me realize that the life I was living was not working. For many years, I felt like I was living in a dream where I was completing daily actions of what I thought I "should" do or what other people expected of me instead of doing what I "felt" like doing. It makes sense that at that time, I felt utterly unreal, limited, weak and hopeless. I was afraid to venture into a life worth living and so I "postponed" my happiness. "If everyone around me is living this life that they seem to be enjoying it, why shouldn't I enjoy it too?", I told myself. I was afraid to leave this seemingly "perfect" life where everything "looked" great on the outside, but I felt disconnected on the inside. I was afraid that if I left everything that I had, there would be nothing else to discover. But I was wrong. The life I now lead is far more abundant and filled with opportunity, connectedness, happiness and freedom than it has ever been and I look forward to the abundance that the universe will continue to give me. Two years ago, when I thought my life to be over, it was actually only the beginning.
     One by one, I stopped doing each thing that made me feel miserable. I changed schools. I changed the people who surrounded me. I searched for the support system that would most benefit me. I fully ventured into a spiritual journey that would provide me with the tools that I needed to create the life of my dreams.  I addressed the reality of my unhappiness in order to realize that the life I was living was not "perfect" and was not benefiting me. I started looking for resources- books, blogs, people, websites, places, environments- that would help me to achieve the life that would feel real and fulfilling. I then saw how many people share the vision of life that I have nurtured in the past two years. For a while there was confusion and chaos, as I persevered to push the boundaries that I was living in for so long. But with support and an internal guidance system, I started believing that I would live an extraordinary life. I shifted my perspective and followed my instincts and heart to the life that I now live- a life that provides me with limitless opportunity to experience adventure, happiness, freedom, ecstasy, connection, spirituality, togetherness, peace and success.
     So my message to you is this: Pursue the life that brings you happiness and freedom. If something is not working or making you unhappy, change it. Change it NOW. Life is too short to spend time "trying" to make something work that isn't. Connect with the people, environments, work and resources that align with your true desires. Aim to take consistent action to achieve the things you truly want. Aim to bring as much happiness into each moment that you breathe and live as you possibly can. Take the risk because it is worth it. The time is NOW to live the life you want.
