Many things we want in life have a $ figure attached to them and either we take the plunge spend the money and maybe end up in debt. Or we hold back and then maybe feel resentful, jealous or denied.
Well what if you could change all that? What if you take a step back, look at the big picture and see life for what it really is? Life is a gift, it is something that needs to be lived and it needs to be lived today. I have not been living this way at all. I was putting off living until after the kids grew up, and then it was after the house was paid off, and then it was after I get the gorgeous truck I wanted, after I got the new couch, the new rug, the new rings. But then something happened. It was like a lightning bolt came down and flashed my life forward, “What did I need all of this STUFF for”? I woke up one day and looked around and you know how I felt? Empty!
If I happened to die that day I would have left a bunch of stuff, and some life insurance, but had I made the impact I wanted? Had I made the memories with the ones I love? Had I really lived?
Life is about living and when I travel around and visit my clients it really helps me to be clear on the ones that are truly living their lives and I can say without a word of doubt that the ones truly living are not the ones that appear to “HAVE IT ALL”.
Today I ask you to sit back and dream a little. What if you take away the dream of accumulation and having more and I offer you to look at having less, working less but living more. Take away the rat race of working harder in order to have more and pay more bills, and sit back and see how you can have less and live more.
There is no better time then today, tomorrow is not guaranteed and so would you not rather leave this earth making an impact, loving more, relaxing more and making beautiful memories instead of leaving a pile of stuff?
Something to ponder.
