Are you still waiting for your life to show up? For the moment when everything will suddenly make sense? Waiting for things in your life to excite you? The morning that you will wake up feeling revived, self-expressed and motivated?
If this sounds like you and your life story, I have some news for you. This life that you have right now, right this very moment, is the prime example of your life showing up. Everything that you see around you is yours. All the little pieces that surround you are exactly where they are supposed to be. And fortunately, or unfortunately, there is nothing to make sense of, because it is just what it seems. So if you have been looking for some deep meaning as to why all of this has been happening in your life or why nothing has been happening in your life, you can stop your search now. There is no deep meaning. Your life, just how it is in this moment, is just how it is supposed to be.
If you don't find relief in that statement, but even less in control, then perhaps you simply need a new perspective. That statement alone should make you feel completely empowered, because your life has not just occurred that way it has by happenstance. Someone didn't just throw a life into the air and you happened to catch it. No, this life is the one you created. The problem is not with your life. The problem lies within your constant state of waiting, instead of realizing that your life is all here now. And if you could simply declare that you created your world the way it is now, you could also declare that you have the ability to recreate it as well.
Take a careful assessment of the things in your life:
1 - Look at the people in your life and the ones you have chosen not to include.
2 - Look at the material things you've acquired over the years and the things you've thrown aside.
3 - What do you avoid in your life?
4 - What do you tolerate, because you think it will never change?
5 - What have you been waiting for?
6 - How often do you say, is this it?
7 - Why do you fear change?
Once you have answered these questions, you will have a better understanding of the “stuff" in your life, yet with a new perspective, you will see that it is just “stuff". The things that you have listed above are things that can be altered at any time, if you choose to alter them. It is not your “life". Your life is what is occurring right now. It is what you create and recreate each time a new day starts. So if you really want to have a life that excites you, start creating it in a way that does just that. Face the things you are avoiding, or rid of them completely. Don't tolerate anything. Keep the relationships in your life that allow you to be the best you can be, and put the others aside. Embrace change as a positive current in your life. And most importantly, stop waiting and start creating your life now.
