When was the last time you gave yourself permission to choose something different in your life?
The past few days have been really intense. I’ve been feeling unsettled and questioning a lot of things in my life. I’ve been asking myself the question- Am I really happy, or am I just pretending to be?
If I’m honest, I have to say that my life has not been feeling all that Kick-Ass lately. Admitting that makes me feel like a bit of a fraud, since I’m supposed to be the one teaching you how to create a Kick-Ass Life for yourself. Part of me feels like I always need to be on top of my game and a shining example of what a Kick-Ass Life looks like. I’m supposed to be positive, inspired and totally rocking it out all the time.
That is so not my reality sometimes!
Sometimes my life feels really difficult. I go through rough spots just like you, where I doubt myself and my choices. Things don’t turn out the way I plan, and I have to deal with the disappointment of it. I put pressure on myself to achieve so much, and it can be exhausting to keep up with it all.
Can you relate to any of that?
When I start feeling this way I always bring it back to the basics. I ask myself –
“How do you want to feel in your life?”
“What would be better?”
I entertain the idea of giving it all up and doing something completely different.
I do this to remind myself that I get choose what I want in my life. I’m not a victim, and nothing is happening to me. I am the source of my experience and I am in a place of choice in every moment.
I make my choices and I move forward. I re-align with the things I want in my life.
Then everything starts to feel better.
