What if our life is not at all about getting from point A to point B, but instead, about flowing ever so gently through all that is in between?
When trying to figure out our life, we make plans. We set up lists, create goals for ourselves and assert that we know for sure where we want to be as we define vague pictures in our mind about someday. Then we declare our purpose and live a life that is filled with getting to that someday.
Unfortunately, someday doesn’t get closer. Not only that, but while we wait we are left feeling unsettled, discontent and fidgety as it begins to feel like we are on a road to nowhere.
Truth: Someday is not coming. Ever. Someday…simply turns into today, with the exact feeling you had the day before. How depressing!
The good news is that with a simple shift in your thinking, you can create a future by design, not by accident, and achieve authentic happiness. It’s not difficult to achieve and once set in place, you will see that your mind, body and spirit naturally want to flow through the parts of your life effortlessly.
First things first:
1 – Write a detailed description of where you want to be, when you hope to be there and how you will know that you have arrived. Write as much detail as you can, including how it will feel and look once you have arrived.
2 – Next, write several things that need to be done in the next 3 months, 6 months and one year, that will help you get to the desired landing spot.
3 – Now read it over, edit, change or add to it as needed, then put it away in a safe spot.
4 – Set a reminder in your calendar at 3 months, 6 months and one year, then check it to see if you are still on the right path. Change as needed.
Now you simply need to accept that someday actually only lives in today. In order to have a future that differs from today, trust that you have a plan in place and that everything you do today and each day, is leading you towards that future.
Eventually your mind will shift from the focus on Point A to Point B and you will be able to flow through your life as it comes to you. In addition, by leaning into your life as it appears now, your future will arrive just on time you and will feel authentically happy on the way there!
