Who oversees the direction your life is going?
I recently flew to San Diego to participate in a retreat with an amazing group of mompreneurs. The turbulence on the flight for the first 30 minutes had me digging deep into the seat back for the little white bag! My head was screaming because my blood pressure stayed up too long, and it took quite awhile for my stomach to roll back to normal.
When we finally hit smooth sailing, it occurred to me that my life during the flight was in the hands of the pilots. I had no control over the situation. I had walked easily through security at the airport, and had lined up to board the plane without a thought to the process of how I was getting to San Diego. Now, I am obviously not referring to the technicalities of flying, but the concept of truly being present in the physical direction I was going.
This led me to wonder who is in charge of the direction our lives are going? For some, it’s a simple answer of a higher being or the universe. While I personally have a deep faith, I believe I still have a personal affect on where my life is going. I believe that I have a choice to fall far into a hole and stay there (I have been there), OR to acknowledge that my current situation is sucking royally, but I have a choice in my reaction or perception. Let me be clear, life will throw us some huge curve balls! In those moments, our only control may be some deep breathing, or choosing to find joy.
We all have the option in life to follow the status quo or do what “they” say we should do. Does it make you happy? Do you feel fulfilled and have passion to approach challenges that may fall in front of you?
I encourage everyone to dream big. Without dreams and goals, we become complacent and stuck. What are you passionate about? What have you always wanted to do, but were afraid to try? Not sure? Try something new! Start to explore these things and see where they can fit into your life. Most of us do not have the luxury of quitting our jobs and changing the course of our lives. So, take it one very small step at first, and see where your passions fit in.
We only get one go around in life, and we don't know how long we will live it. Go be great, and make a change in someone’s life…starting with you!
