One thing becomes more and more obvious to me as I get older, women need to re-evaluate their priorities. We get stuck. On the surface we seem okay, but there’s a lot of hurt and disillusionment churning on the inside. You can see it the eyes and you can feel it in the energy. The way we really feel is hard to hide.
We women need to have ongoing heart-to-heart discussion with ourselves – pinpointing what’s working and what not working in our lives. We don’t have to be resigned to just okay because just okay turns to unhappiness and resentment much quicker than you think. Vital, intelligent women start to feel powerless and that’s such a waste of creative energy.
Life has its own special way of beating us down if we let it. The way to combat that is to live in the moment – making sure feeling good is a #1 priority. Really work at noticing the negatives we focus on. Thinking too much is a dangerous thing. Isn’t it crazy that no matter how many good things there are to be thankful for, they get kicked to the curb for something that upsets us?
We are always going to have challenges and we are constantly being tested. What we have to do is accept that, learn from it and move on to create the next feel good thing.
If you can finally accept that the only person we are capable of changing is ourselves, and that our happiness is our responsibility, we will put ourselves in the driver’s seat. Life would be a much more enjoyable that way.
