What gets you up in the morning? What makes you feel so excited? What is your fire?
We all have a fire inside of us that is trapped somewhere beneath our comfort zone and fears. A thing that pushes us to wake up early in the morning and keep us awake at night despite being sleepy and stressed. It is our will that makes us think we can survive another day of living and surpass all of the hardships. What if all of a sudden our will or fire doesn't have a meaning anymore?
We wake up everyday just to get by. We wake up the next day and the next day and the next. Suddenly, one morning we feel so exhausted, stuck in life, and it feels as if everything we worked so hard for are all for nothing. We lose our sense of self, feel depressed, and seem lost. Sometimes we think that we keep going in circles and no matter how hard we try, we always fail. We feel like giving up but deep down inside of our heart we know we are meant to experience a lot of amazing adventures, pursue our dreams and create our own personal legend.
The question is why can't we?
They say that life is short and to just do your own thing. They say to just go for it, but we continue to live in fear and allow our own shadows to hinder us from breaking free and becoming who we want to be.
Believe it or not there is always something good or bad in every situation, but it is up to us to focus on the good and the positive things. If we think and believe positive things will happen to us then, we'll attract positive energy. If we give good energy to the universe then it will give it back . The universe is always conspiring for us to push ourselves and to chase our dreams despite the hardships and the feeling that we’re stuck in life.
IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
Now is the time to start something new. Now is the moment to live passionately and forget about our fears and what others might think of us. This moment is about choosing how to live based on what we want and who we want to be. It is about making a choice to move forward and pursue the fire within us.
So, how do we get back our will to live?
Listen to your heart
Meditate and Focus
Create a vision board
Go out of your comfort zone
Get inspiration (read books and blogs)
Exercise and do some Yoga
Journal your thoughts
No matter how difficult life gets, trust your instincts and go back to your vision board. Chasing your dream is a brave act. Be proud of yourself because you chose to become happier and not settle with the way things are now. It won't always be sunshine and butterflies, but I promise you that if you get through it, you'll become stronger and wiser.
“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. ”― Oprah Winfrey
Oprah is best known for hosting her own talk show which made a huge hit airing for 25 seasons. We all know this amazing woman; she inspired billions of girls to make a positive impact and pursue who they want to be. She started as a news anchor, but she didn't feel like it was a job meant for her. When she was still working as a reporter, her boss would reprimand her for being compassionate towards the people she interviews. She was fired because of that and when she saw an opportunity to be in a talk show she seized this and finally she found home. She used television as a platform to uplift, inspire, encourage and entertain billions of people which she have always dreamed of.
Oprah always believe in her instincts and decisions which led her to a successful and fulfilling life. It wasn't an easy journey for Oprah, but she knew her purpose and passion. She is a good role model to everyone who has a big dream of their own. When things get tough, we need to look up to inspirational people who surpassed difficult times like Oprah Winfrey. It is a reminder to us that if we worked hard on our dreams we can achieve it. If she can do it, we can do it too.
Now you are ready to show the whole world who you are and what your personal legend is. You are ready to embark on a new adventure and create your own dream life. Go and move forward to show them what you can do! Pursue your dreams. It is never too late.
