Survival Mode is Not an Option

06 August

Do you sit and daydream about how your life should be?

Are you wondering how you got to this point? You are sitting where I sat exactly 4 years ago, although if you are calmly asking yourself these questions you are in a much better place than I was.

I was on a downward spiral and was lucky enough to take a leap of faith and jump off! Since finding my way back to my childhood dreams, I’ve made it my purpose to ensure that you too stop just surviving your life and begin thriving.

This wonderful life is too short to be bitching about your boss or bemoaning the life you have chosen.

It’s not too late

The only thing that is stopping you is you! You may have noticed I said it was the life you have chosen and before you start a tirade in the comments of it not being a choice, I respectfully inform you that you are wrong and no correspondence will be entered into!!

This thought was extremely confrontational to me at first too, until I saw the absolute liberation it gave me. If I chose this crappy life, then I can choose the coolest most exciting life I can imagine!

Running my own business from anywhere in the world sounded like a fantastical plan, but I’m doing it.

Authentic Life

Not my wildest dreams, this is my life!

Barriers are generally self-imposed

Most of the reasons we give ourselves for why we can’t choose to live our purpose are self-imposed. You’re not being a better person by sacrificing yourself. It’s just not possible, it’s not selfish to put yourself first it’s plain common sense. If you are happy and fulfilled you can only be a better person to be around.

You don’t have to make the drastic changes I made, they were right for me. You just have to find out what you enjoy doing, what gives you energy rather than takes it and do more of it.

You can keep lamenting or you can do something right now! I dare you.
