In today’s world, change seems to be the name of the game. Life as we once knew it has changed and life as we will know it likely will change.Things will not be the same, but maybe they will be new and improved? I for one have upped my hand washing and sanitization skills and am uber aware of not touching my face. I maintain distance between myself and others and have managed to stay sickness-free for over a year and a half. I see businesses doing business in new ways so to best maintain safety, comfort and flexibility for their clientele.
With all this change, it got me thinking maybe we should consider some changes in our own selves? There is no better time to implement change because everything is all sort of one big do-over. So, why can’t we have a do-over?
Now, you don’t have to throw the baby out with the bath water on this. I mean, you have a lot of great stuff going for you, but there is always room for improvement. Isn’t it a bit freeing to think you have an excuse to drop the chains that have kept you tied to old tapes or other’s expectations? If there ever was a right time to break away from things that are not serving you well, then now would be the time! You can start living the life you always wanted to live. You can be the you, you have always wanted to be! I love this!
I want you to think about why this might be important. The why helps to define your motivation for making the change. Fundamentally you have to believe that what matters most in all this is YOU.
You matter - period. You matter. Your opinions matter, your voice must be heard! The nudgings of your dreams need to be pursued because why? Because you matter. That’s all, nothing more and nothing less.
1.Begin with dropping what doesn’t matter. Take a look at the stuff you are spending your time on that in the big picture is not adding value to your life.
2 Think about what is important in your life (Pssst, you are important!) and make a list of all those things.
3. Add the good stuff in,
4. Take the not-so-good stuff out!
5. Fashion a vision of what you want your do-over life to look like.
6. Set up a time bound plan of action to go after the new Do-Over You!
7. Take a few minutes each day to be mindful of this new Do-Over Life!
8.Check in and make sure you are staying true to the new you because, why? Because you matter!
There it is, DreamChasers, your invitation to take do-over on either parts of your life or the whole dang thing! Go for it and don’t forget to…
