Life and the Universe have a funny way of getting your attention and getting you back on track.
Sometimes you just need a kick in the rear to get moving. Sometimes that kick is “slightly” more than you expected. Well, that has been my life lately. I feel like I am on a roller coaster that I have no control over. So I look inwards and control what I can.
I turn back to daily mediation, creative visualization and yoga. What this has made me realize is that there are a great many things I need to change in my life. I love getting ready for my yoga practice and having my son copy my movements. What a blessing it is to be able to share these quiet moments with him, in the midst of all the turmoil.
But these moments have also made me realize how much I am missing by working. I guess you can say it was very humbling and centering to realize that I need to move forward with a one forgotten dream. Sometimes I feel like becoming a “mom” made me think I had to give up on my dreams. What I have realized is that I never needed to give up on them, maybe they just needed a little revamping.
All of this reminds of something a yoga instructor, I recently had described. She said dharma is to live with purpose and meaning. Essentially, I think it means that you should do what you were meant to do. Everyone has a purpose in life. The hardest part is finding it. This really got me thinking about what I was meant to do in this life versus what I have been doing. I mean, I do the job thing, making me a productive member of society, but is that really all I want my life to be? Is that how I want to be remembered?
So I have decided to make this year MY year. I spend time every morning visualizing where I will be in three years and knowing that I have an amazing future in store.
But what I have to ask you is, what is holding you back? What do you need to take that leap from ordinary to amazing?
