Live Your Life March 15, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

Live . . . your . . . life.  Simple enough, right?

After all, you’ve already got the live part chugging right along.  You’re eating, breathing, talking, thinking, and reading insightful blogs.

But it is your life?  The life you were “meant” to live?

Clues that the life you are living is your own:

* You wake up filled with enthusiasm ~ anxious to dive into the new day

* You move through most days with at least the hint of a smile on your face

* Your life feels complete ~ filled to the brim with activities you enjoy

Clues that you are living somebody else’s life:

* You feel like you’re wearing someone else’s badly tailored, ill-fitting suit

* Your energy levels are low and enthusiasm is a distant memory

* You dread waking up in the morning and having to do it all again

You’re the expert.

If your life feels like a “custom fit” to you . . . you can safely assume it’s your life you’re living.

On the other hand, if the life you’re living is too tight in some places, too loose in others, and filled with rips, shreds and tears at the seams, you’ve got some mending to do.

No rules.  Just write!

Good one, Nancy. Liked the quote, too!

I hope you don’t mind me and my quoats, but here goes;

“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. To be your own man is a hard business. If you try it, you’ll be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”

Arthur Gordon

I thought this stated it fairly well. :):):):):):):)
