There is so much pressure in today’s world about how we ought to look, behave, think… I am personally being told the best way to attain happiness and most of the time it involves spending money. Come on!I am happy and comfortable with myself; I am living intentionaly, which is so big these days.That’s what life coaching is all about, by the way: living on purpose. Do not be bullied into being something you are not. If you are not happy with any aspect of life then it is up to you alone to change it. Life is what you make it and you can be the person you want to be.
Here is how to start:
Take a good look at yourself. Do you like what you see? Are you happy with the person you have become? Is there anything you would change? Don’t ask the opinions of too many people because it is what you want and like that matters. If you feel it is time for a hair-cut, do it! If your weight leaves you feeling negative about yourself, then start doing the rigth thing with a healthy diet and exercise. No one can stop you from eating too much or exercising too little except YOU. If a fashion revamp is in order, then get rid of those pieces of clothing that really don’t fit or suit you. Wear those pink hot pants while cleaning the floor, if you don’t think they are appropriate for outdoor wear but you just can’t give them up. Wear what you feel comfortable in and what reflects your personality, not what you want other people to see. Dress for yourself. Are you starting to feel liberated?
Forget about the past, put it away, thinking about it won’t change a thing. Never mind the future because it never comes and plans often go awry. Take time to think about what is important to you today. Keep your thoughts and actions in the moment.
Think for yourself.
Be true to yourself.
Do not follow the crowd because everyone else is. Listen to that little voice inside called intuition and if something does not feel right, don’t do it just because others are.
Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is. The secret is in doing it! Until it becomes a delightful habit.
Try it–you won’t regret it! And by the way, you are not being selfish. You are just being real. And that is very attractive. Just sayin’
