I got out of the box.
It wasn’t easy, but I did it. I found my escape…my “out” - and I took it, like you wouldn’t believe.
I had come to the realization of how unhappy and disconnected I was. I recognized how tired I was of living up to everyone else’s standards. I was mad that I let myself do it and for so long. I was frustrated because I couldn’t see or figure my way out and then I was frustrated because I stopped trying. I had lost sight of my passion and “heart”, yet I had HUGE dreams, vivid visions and ambitious goals, unattainable in my own ability – but I let the opinions and beliefs of others determine how far I would reach and what for. It was time for ME to live - so I made a decision, and then I made the change.
Here’s how I did it (I’ll go into more detail about this in upcoming entries):
1. I changed my mind
2. I changed my environment
3. I changed my circle
These major changes, alone, proved to be the success formula for me.
In a recent conversation I had with myself, “we” discovered this eye-opening revelation. Though I have yet to reach my goal and place of destiny, I’m well on my way. Each day I’m progressing and each day I can see and track my progress and movement. And it’s because of the huge and freeing impact of just 3 small, intentional changes.
No longer is my smile a disguising mechanism engaged to mask my heart’s sting. It's genuinely and authentically my heart’s theme and song it sings.
THIS, my friend, is living!
