Those dreams, aspirations and goals – they aren’t someday kinds of things.
We have all said, “someday I will…”
- write a book
- create a library
- learn to dive
- have time for me
- eat better
- work out
- have less stress
- open my business
Things like these are our dreams. They are the things our soul is asking us to do to raise our vibration, fill our destiny, feel complete. These are things you deserve to do.
When you place things on a someday list, kiss them good bye. Someday has such vague energy it is impossible to pin down and it won’t get fed. It won’t get fed by you and it won’t get fed by anyone you might receive from. You didn’t invest in it. And when you don’t invest, the universe won’t either.
Ever have moments of throwing caution to the wind? The “Oh screw it, let’s do it!” kind of moments when you power through your fear like a boss and capture the energy of the moment and do something that excites you.
I am a big fan of those moments, those moments of adrenaline and joy and excitement and a little thrill of “yes please!”. I have embraced someday as today on the regular for a while now:
- Left my job in 2012 to pursue my dreams of business ownership
- Left a marriage that wasn’t the best for either of us to find a partnership that works
- Am transforming my business from a just me to a team model
- Became an artist
- Fell in love
- Embraced being a soccer mom on my terms
- Traveled and keep traveling
Most of these were seize the moment, seize the idea, say yes please kinds of moments in time that took me leaping into what felt like an abyss to be caught by purpose and direction and clarity on the way down. The unknown become the known rather quickly once I said, “yes, today” instead of, “someday after I figure out…”
Watch for these yes please moments. Create them.
Life is not a someday kind of thing.
It is a live it now while you have this moment kind of thing.
This video recently published by The Minimalists sums up this idea quite wonderfully.
