The life you live today reflects the choices you made up to now. What you do today determines how you will live tomorrow.
Your happiness and circumstances are your happiness and circumstances. You can live the life you want despite your current levels of either. But, how can you know your choices if you never stop to think about where you are?
How can you expect to arrive at a destination in life if you do not know your starting point? When you look at a map to plan a trip, you pick a destination AND you create your directions from your starting point.
Well, you have to know your starting point before you take the first step on your journey in life, too. You already know your goal, your destination, right? If not, then I recommend starting there: No use taking a step unless you know which direction to head.
Personally, I love spontaneity. For me, getting in the car with my needs (food, water, clothing and emergency supplies) and just picking a road sounds like a terrific adventure-and I want to live my life as the glorious adventure that it is.
However, when it comes to where I want to wind up in life-where I want to live, how I want to live and with whom-those details make up my dream life. No way do I leave my final destination to chance.
Now I do ask the Universe for what I want and then allow the Universe to bring it to me in the timing that best suits my higher good rather than in my own wishful thinking time. Of course, sometimes the two mesh perfectly.
My question to you is, where are you on your life's journey? How far along the path to your big dream do you think you are now, right this moment? If you do not know the precise answer, then make the time to be with your Self and figure it out. You cannot expect the Universe to lead you when it has no idea where you want to go.
The bottom line is only you can change your life. . . when you are ready to do so. Change comes from within. Knowing the programs running your subconscious mind allows you to override what does not work and replace it with programs that do work.
