Who are you in three words: 1. 2. 3. Now does this coincide with how you believe other people reference you? If not why so?
When do we start to want what others want? As a baby and toddler we are so strong in what we need and we never bat an eye to other people’s ideas and ways or values. But then somewhere along the way we begin to accept others values as our own. As a mom, this is one of the most important things to me for my kids, and what I have discovered it’s a 24/7 awareness I must bring to the table. Constantly to be aware of what I say to them, what I want them to do and also just to really listen to what they are saying; I’ve worked with kids for over 15 years and what I have found is that kids know what they want and who they are better than any adult, we can learn a lot from them if we just listen and follow in their footsteps.
So can you get excited about your life rather than trying to live like someone else lives or live like you believe someone else wants you to live? When we do this we steal from the other person and most important we steal our time, our experiences and our journey.
So are you available for your own life or too busy trying to live someone else’s?
In this very moment what do you want to share with the world? Why aren’t you sharing these gifts right now? By not sharing these gifts you are stealing joy from your own life and potential joys and experiences from those around you.
Know that life is not punishing you but rather teaching you, offering you a great opportunity to grow and expand, so don’t steal this wonderful opportunity from yourself and then steal the hopes and dreams from someone else merely because you didn’t get what you wanted. You are in the driver’s seat, so start to enjoy the view.
