Life On My Terms Challenge
I believe life is meant to be lived.
So many people just exist. We go through the motions. We do things that don’t really light us up. We stay in careers that suck the life out of us. We stay in relationships well past their use by date. We get into habits that don’t support us. And then we wonder why we aren’t truly fulfilled or loving life.
I noticed that I was getting into a rut. Somewhere along the line I got caught up in the humdrum nature of the day to day. Each day would blur into the other.
I was just existing.
I had dreams. But somewhere what I wanted got lost and disappeared.
It was time to create a life worth loving. I did not feel content just sitting on the sidelines. While from the outside looking in it may have looked like I was happy and getting amongst things on the inside I feel like I am capable of more. Tired of playing it small, safe and in essence play by the rules.
It was time to really say yes to life. Grab it with both hands and shake things up and really make what I want to happen a reality.
Because you know what? The magic really occurs when you push yourself. When you stretch yourself- beyond your comfort zone.
So here I go.
The following is a commitment. A pledge to live life on my terms.
The following is an evolving list of things that might seem impossible to some. They are guide posts of what living life on my terms looks like to me. Not just a check list. But a blueprint for a life well lived. They embody the essence of who I am and what I truly desire out of life.
It may change and grow from time to time. Put it this way, I will definitely add to it as time goes by.
The list that follows will guide my adventures. The journey that unfolds I will blog about and keep you up to date on my progress.
Life is too short to be living anyone else’s life but your own. We deserve to have the happiness we are seeking. And to live a life we love.
Will you grab this life with both hands or just let it pass you by?
