Mid-day Monday Musings
Living your life day to day, it’s easy to become complacent, accept the hand you’ve been dealt and continue on with a monotonous routine that will bring you no closer to reaching any of your goals. Or perhaps your routine will bring you closer to a goal, but that goal no longer holds the value it once did and needs to be reevaluated. Have you lost sight of what is truly important to you? Have you even taken the time to figure out what that is? If you’ve determined that change is necessary, what is holding you back?
Should you find yourself in a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is likely to be more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.
To go against the dominant thinking of your friends, of most of the people you see every day, is perhaps the most difficult act of heroism you can perform.
Theodore H. White
Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.
I find it fascinating that most people plan their vacation with better care than they do their lives. Perhaps that is because escape is easier than change.
Sometimes just realizing that you need a change is harder than actually implementing it. Surround yourself with people who love and support you, regardless of your decisions. Get rid of the toxicity in your life. Immerse yourself in your passions. Discover what makes you tick, and actively seek it out. Try not to let your overarching goals get lost in the shuffle of the everyday. If your day-to-day actions don’t support your vision for the future…CHANGE!
