There are 7 days in a week. “Someday” is not one of them.
This is YOUR YEAR! The year you finally make it happen! Land that perfect job… reach your target weight…take that trip of a lifetime. Whatever it is that you feel will add to your happiness, the time to ask for it is now. Not next year, not five years from now, but now. We have all heard people say, “Time is precious, Life waits for no-one, No time like the present” and they’re right! We all have the opportunity to change anything we are not 100% happy with in our lives. It is up to us, not some outside source, to bring us happiness. If you are unhappy at work, start looking for another job. If you have always wanted to travel the world, put it out there. Even if it seems impossible right now, make it your goal to change whatever it is in your life that you want to change.
The “how” is not so important; for now, just focus on the “what”. Most say to be specific in your goals. True, we should know exactly what it is we are asking for in our lives. But, how it will come to be is something that is still an unknown. We can find a million reasons why this will never happen or that can’t be. The possibilities are limitless and opportunities have not yet been revealed. It makes sense that we should remain open to all of them, even if we cannot even begin to imagine what they may be at this point in time. Just believe that somehow, someway, it WILL happen!
Get yourself a nice journal, put it near your bed and write in it every night before you go to sleep. Make sure to include the things already in your life that make you happy, and add what it is that you would like to change to make it even better!
It is truly amazing to witness the power of intention at work in our lives. Nonsense you say? Try it! It really does work. I have found journals from many many years ago and like a checklist, one by one, all those “someday dreams” I had jotted down are now realities today. If you want it bad enough, and it will serve you, it will come to fruition. And while we can’t always control the timing, when we ask for it, it will come our way.
Think of all the things you have achieved in your life up to this point. At one time, all these things in your life today were just ideas, goals, desires. Things you wanted someday. And you made every one of them real. Draw on those successes. Remind yourself of how they came to be; some you probably worked very hard for; you wanted it so bad and nothing could stand in your way. Then there are those that just seemed to come easy…those you can look back at in wonder and awe at how they just seemed to appear like magic! You never in your wildest of imaginations could have conjured up the series of events that took place to get you there. But you got there just the same. Draw on those experiences if you need a reminder. And never forget to be grateful for what you already have.
