Are you living the life you were born to live?
Some of us have never stopped long enough to contemplate this question. In fact, we sometimes do everything we can to avoid considering it…
- Running on the treadmill day after day
- Taking care of everyone else instead of prioritizing ourselves
- Collapsing into bed at night exhausted from another day of multi-tasking
And before we know it, we are in the “autumn” of our lives. The years have flown by. We feel the years in our body. But still…
Something else or someone else still comes first.
Your body is resilient and fragile at the same time. Years of neglect come with a price tag. That price tag is oftentimes your good health.
What you tend to discover the hard way is that running to the doctor or popping a pill doesn’t resolve your health problems. The aches and pains and complaints are trying to tell you something.
When you don’t “listen” the message gets louder. That little voice deep inside has a message for you to hear.
Are you too busy to hear what your body is trying to tell you?
If you are, don’t worry, the message will get louder until you do listen. Sometimes that wakeup call comes in the form of receiving a serious or life-threatening diagnosis. Or experiencing a ground-shaking life event that is completely blindsiding. You just didn’t see it coming.
Dr. Wayne Dyer called this a quantum moment. This is the moment in your life when you shift out of the lie you have been living. Your denial shatters. In the blink of an eye, life looks different.
Dr. Dyer was one of my great life mentors. He was an amazing author and spiritual teacher. He taught me to go inside and reflect upon my own life and purpose for being here.
“Don’t die with your music still in you,” was one of his common quotes. It always made me stop and think…
Living a life of purpose takes on a whole new meaning. What previously meant ambition and drive and focusing on others, now shifts into living in alignment with your purpose and your own happiness.
When you wake up to living a life of purpose, it takes work on your part to get into action and move toward self-awareness, emotional connectedness and spiritual growth.
It means prioritizing YOU.
When you prioritize your own needs and align with your purpose in life, this is when you can truly be of service to others. Often, this is just the opposite of how you have been living your life before your quantum moment…
You thought taking care of everyone else first was the right thing to do.
You thought accumulating “stuff” would make you happy.
You thought something outside yourself held the answers to your joy in life.
You thought wrong… Until you have your wake up call.
Life is your learning playground. Sometimes your lessons smack you right between the eyes to get your attention.
Seeking validation outside yourself compromises your dignity, your morals and your values. Everything you need to be happy has been inside you all along.
Let life take you where you are destined to go. Get out of your own way.
You may find that you have already moved into this phase of your life. Or, you may sense it is coming…
If you want true wellness in your life, it is a body/mind/soul experience. Living your life on purpose will nourish every level and move you toward the joy and vibrancy that is your birthright.
Unfortunately, most people need some kind of quantum moment to propel them into making a shift. Ironically, what seems like a moment of desperation can turn out to be one of life’s gifts and a true blessing in disguise.
If you have been prioritizing everyone else, you may realize that NOW is the time to focus on your own wellness.
