We spend a great deal of time and energy thinking about what we want from life and how we don’t have it yet. Being caught up in our desires for the future, we forget to look at today. We have forgotten to cherish the experiences of the moment that always let us know how we are doing and how we are making progress toward a future of our dreams.
Are we striving so hard for a “future” we don’t even pay attention to what we are creating today?
In order to design a life you want to live, you must first see and experience the moments of today. No one has your unique set of experiences, desires, group of people or even outlook on life quite like you. If you are trying to fit yourself into someone else’s formula for the good life you will always feel a bit out of place. Perhaps it is time to come up with your own answers and create your own formula for living your best life.
The answers are only in one place. The answers are inside of you. Deep down you know who you are and who you want to become. Instead of looking to the outside for the answers it’s time to look inside and remember who you are. Looking to the outside only gives you the “shoulds” our society would like to see. To live your dream life, you will need to shake of those “shoulds” to reveal the life you were born to live.
Finding the answers starts with the asking yourself the right questions. Spending time listening to yourself in quiet contemplation is necessary on the road to your best life. If you are not sure what to ask, here are some sample questions from my book, A Year of Questions.
- What is your overall dream for your life?
- How would you describe yourself? What makes you, you?
- What are your values?
- What reoccurring thoughts do you have that keep you stuck?
- What would you like to think about yourself, others and the world you live in?
Take some time to come up with your own personalized answers to those questions. You never know where they may take you.
