But I also know how important it is to fight that crappiness feeling. How is that done? Here’s how:
Remember first that whatever you focus on grows. So what do you want to grow in your mind and emotions today? Are things changing in your life in ways you don’t like? Use these life-changing events to change your mind!
With unexpected life changes we are sometimes offered unique opportunities to see everything differently, causing us to question anew the entire plan we have laid out for our life. Maybe we aren’t even aware that we have a plan, until something screws it up. Sometimes just a scary birthday can help us open up to options we never dreamed of before.
Nothing is scarier than the daunting realization we have not even tried to live up to our full potential. Sure we did what we were told and found some success in our endeavors. Being “good” definitely has its rewards. But do you ever spend time focused on all that you could have been, and then realize that none of that will ever happen?
If you are anything like me, all of these “details” can only be ignored so long. In midlife we realize time will run out, and when it does, how will we feel as we look back on our lives?
One of the best things about being alive today is that we have a new perspective, we have more time after this realization, and we have the tools and resources to do something when we begin to feel this way. All we may lack is the courage to dig in and live the dream…
