The answer to your best life might be surprising.
We all know it's not about having gobs of money, although having your basic needs met is crucial.
Yet in this world where people are stressed, anxious, and not happy in jobs that are way too stressful and demanding, it's time to do what we can do and take ultra good care of ourselves. This is what makes an ordinary life the best life.
We live in a world where we don't know what will happen with the pandemic or the climate crisis. It's a crazy time in history and by many predictions, it will get worse.
So...here's the deal.
There are way too many things out of our control.
We can choose to start loving ourselves so that we can be resilient and contribute to helping figure out how to help in our own unique way.
When we let go of how we think life has to be and really believe in ourselves we have freedom.
What if you really did create the kind of life you love vs spending all the time trying to escape from it? What if?
You see, to me, the answer lies within.
If we don't really know who we are or what we want, there's a problem.
Then if we're not honoring the desires we have, that's a problem, too.
And then if we feel hopeless that we won't ever have the life we want...that's disappointing at best, devasting at worst.
There are lots of things we think we can't change that we actually can. One of those things is how we treat ourselves.
We all know that tomorrow is not promised.
So what you are waiting for?
