It sounds like something Oprah would ask you, and I want to know too! Are you living your best life?
Do you love your life? Do you enjoy your line of work? Do you even consider it ‘work’? Do you have a life you’ve always dreamed of? It’s time for you to say YES!
I love my life. I love where I live, I love what I do & I know I can make my dreams come true!
Just so you know, the amazing life I have now is a relatively new phenomenon for me!
To give you some background, I used to struggle, suffer, complain, be the victim, blame others, and where did that get me? Upset and unhappy. And I was sick a lot. Can you relate?
I spent many years thinking that ending my life would be better than living it until one day I met a man who had a grin ear-to-ear for no reason! (If I’ve shared this with you in a previous post, please bear with me, it’s still relevant. LOL) At first I thought there was something wrong with him, but every time I saw him he was smiling and what really bugged me was that I wanted that! I wanted to be happy and smiling all the time! So, I asked him why he was always smiling, how he got that way, lol, and he told me how he transformed his life. He told me about a few courses I could take, but all I had to do was go online, do a search and go with the one I liked! I had enough of being miserable, so I scoured the internet for transformative programs to help me turn my life around. And thus my personal growth began.
This blog post isn’t about all the classes I’ve taken, or what I’ve taken or where I went to transform my life. This blog post is about the fact I changed my life and so can you!
The moment I started to take an interest in becoming the best me I could be, things began to shift. As I invested in myself, I began to understand why & how I ticked and how to tick differently! The more I yearned to rediscover myself, the more my life changed. You might be wondering, how did it change?
First, how my life looked before; I disliked my job and stayed in it because I didn’t think I could find something better. I had almost no female friends. My dating life looked like a revolving door. I was insecure and scared, putting myself in dangerous situations almost on purpose, like I had nothing to lose and didn’t care! I was living a life of fear!
I loved to play the victim. If I was the victim, I got attention. I thought that was how to get attention, how to get love, but it was really manipulation. I had to get out of my own way to see how I was responsible for not having the love I wanted or the friendships I desired.
When I started to invest in myself, I learned how to LIVE.
What I learned was that I wasn’t able to attract men who were honest, kind and respectful until I became honest, kind and respectful with myself first. I wasn’t able to attract loving, generous & open friends until I became the same. You attract who you are.
My friendships changed, my relationships with my immediate and extended family changed, my view of myself changed, I became responsible for my actions and choices and now I live a life with integrity!
Just so you know, investing in yourself does take some work. It takes courage to look at yourself and the choices you’ve made thus far. It takes the willingness to learn, to be open to a new perspective. The reward though, is worth it!
Life is an on-going journey, with lessons to be learned daily. When my life started to change, I kept going. I continue to take classes in areas of interest because I want to have a mastery of how to live my best life!
As a result of my hard work and dedication to myself, I have a life that I love! I live in Hawaii, in a home I love, I’ve started 2 new businesses that I intend to grow to help millions of people and I’m continuing to see my dreams come true! :)
So, what I want to know is, are you ready to invest in yourself? Did you once invest in yourself and then stopped when you didn’t see the results you wanted? Keep going! You are more ready than you know and you deserve to live the life of your dreams! :) What are you waiting for? Your best life is waiting for you now!
‘Til next time, thanks for reading, and Happy Dreaming! :)
