"There is no greater gift, you can give or receive
than to honor your calling." Oprah
What are you putting off that your soul, your spirit, your very essence wants you to do? This week, I came across a question that stopped me in my tracks!
Whatever you are doing...or plan on doing, or are putting off doing...in 5 years if you do more of this thing....where will you be? Will you be happier, healthier, kinder, prouder, freer, more loving, richer....?
It makes you ponder doesn't it? No matter what anyone else thinks of our actions, we all have an internal North Star that tells us if we are on the right path. By asking this question...am I enhancing or diminishing my future by this action. You will know. We will know the answer.
Going shopping, hitting the Amazon button, ordering a double cheese pizza, putting off calling a friend, staying up past or bedtime, heading out for a walk first thing in the dawn, writing on your porch on a Sunday afternoon after mowing the lawn. Whatever you are doing or plan on doing...pause and ask this question. In 5 years, if I continue doing _________ where will I be? Will my internal essence, heart, my soul be cheering me on or sobbing?
This question doesn't care how old we are, or what we did yesterday or 15 years ago. It cares what we are doing right now and how we want to live in our own future. Our current actions pave forward our future.
Ask more questions! Flush judgment down the drain!! Judgement is wasted energy. It does you no good. How do you want your future to be? A year from now, tomorrow morning?
What do you truly love, what do you want to do with your beautiful life? Our future is created day by day, moment by moment. Feeling stuck, of course, we all get stuck. Just start with one little shift in a positive direction. It can be microscopic...but headed towards a beautiful tomorrow.
It doesn't matter if your ______ is monumentally big or tiny....by taking a step in the right direction we begin.
Happy travels and questions, Denise
