Fearless Files: Be You...Live in The Moment

Monday, February 17, 2014

It has been said that in order for good things to come into your life, you should focus on being the best person you can be. What you put out into the universe will come back to you. It's that law of attraction theory. I do believe in that but I also believe that in order for you to work on being the best person you can be, you have to do it for YOU first and not for the things you want to come into your life. They will come anyway but it really hinges on how you receive those things. If you're not ready, you won't receive them at all and miss what could be a great opportunity.

It is assumed that by the time you hit your 40's, you're supposed to have your life together. And to live by that assumption puts a lot of pressure on those of us who have entered our 40's and whose lives have not turned out the way we planned. ::raises hand::

I believe my destiny is pre-determined and I am here in this world for a reason. BUT...because of free will and the high probability that any of us can make a poor choice (hey, it happens), our journey changes and doesn't always go the way we thought it would.

What counts is having fun while on that journey. Life is a bunch of moments. We don't know how many moments we have so we have to enjoy the ones that come along as they come. Age doesn't determine where you are in your life. Your choices do. How you choose to live your life is the foundation of all choices you will make in your life. If you choose to live your life striving for happy moments and being at peace with things beyond your control, you will make choices in your life that will benefit that life, including who you allow in your life, how you feel about things and how you look at the world.

We constantly evolve and what I have learned is that sometimes, we have to get know ourselves again. Evolution is all about change and with change, you have to embrace the person you are today. Not the person you were before or the person you think you should be. The future is unknown. All we have is this present moment. So, all you need to be concerned about is right now. In this present moment, what do you want to do?

My dad's sudden death redefined my
life for me because it forced me to see that life is not as guaranteed as I thought it was. It reminded me that I should not be taking life for granted.

Time is valuable, life is short. Use it wisely. Those are my dad's words and I feel like lately, I can hear him whispering those words in my ear more frequently.

My life is not perfect but I am happy. I'm happy because I'm enlightened. And my journey has changed as a result of that enlightenment. There's nothing wrong with focusing on yourself. Because that will make you a better person, friend, daughter/son, child, partner, significant other, everything. Be kind to yourself and you will be kind to others.

Never forget to always put YOU first. Your life will thank you for it and it will be the best life you could have ever lived because you truly lived and enjoyed every moment.
