You probably have heard of the saying to live each day of your life as if it is your last, but how many of us actually do it. Many of us procrastinate in doing the things we really want to do or live the life we really want to live. We say things like I will do it when I have more time, more money etc. however often times we never get around to it.
I have been becoming aware in my own life of how I am engaging in this pattern of behaviour and thought. I can see that I am making excuses of why not to do this and not to do that. At the moment I am in a job which my heart really isn’t in it. The truth is I am not finding any meaning and purpose in this job. I am currently in Australia on a 4 week holiday and I really don’t want to go back to this job. I have this dream of going to India and learn to become a yoga teacher in my life and also explore the many wonders in India.
I can see my approval seeking thoughts and limiting beliefs holding me back. I have been asking myself the question of what do I want? The answer which is coming up for me is to be true to myself! At times this easier said than done in the world that we live in.
Most of us are living in a way that we have all the time in the world. We can wish our days away by wishing we had more time, more money etc. By living this way we can have the tendency to put off really living until something happens such as getting that job or when we have the money or the time….Time waits for no man/woman!! Time really is our greatest commodity….it is up to each of us how we choose to spend it.
How would you choose to live if you knew you had a limited amount of time on this earth?…….Would you choose to continue to live the life you are currently living?
The truth is that none of us know when out time is up. You or I could die today, tomorrow, next week or next year. We need to consciously choose to live our lives as if everyday is our last day on this earth.
Here are a few questions to get you thinking…
* Are you living to die or dying to live?
* What things are you putting off that you could do today that would
make you a more happier, peaceful and loving person?
* What would you dream to do if you had more time or money?
* If you knew you had only 6 months to live, what would you be, do or
* What would you like people to say about you if you died in regards to
the person you were or how you lived?
* What would you like to say to yourself when you are on your death
As always I would love to hear any feedback, comments or words of wisdom or inspiration.
