Dive into the deep end of your life. That’s where all the fun and excitement and fulfillment is. It’s mind-numbingly boring to play it safe, to do what you’re supposed to do, to live down to everyone’s expectations.
That’s right: live down to everyone’s expectations.
Living your life someone else’s way is lowering yourself: Lowering your sights, lowering your own expectations of what you can have, do, and be in your own life.
DON’T DO IT—DON’T LIVE DOWN TO EVERYONE ELSE’S EXPECTATIONS!!!
LIVE UP TO WHAT YOU KNOW FOR SURE THAT YOU CAN DO, BE, AND HAVE!!!
Even if it seems like a pipe dream right now, trust it anyway. That’s your heart and soul speaking to you! It’s the Still Small Voice pointing the way and guiding you.
Go for it—go for what YOU know to be right and true for you!!
Because it isn’t worth the price you’ll pay of following someone else’s expectations of you. The price is that you don’t get to live your life. There are no do-overs. You don’t get a second chance. If you don’t live this life the way you want to, at the end of it you don’t get to rewind it. Even if you believe in reincarnation, you won’t get this life, this chance, back again. You’ll come back in a different body with a different family in a different place. Nothing will be the same.
You may think it’ll be better next time around. Well, maybe it’ll be worse! You have the chance now. You know yourself and your life, why not take the chance you have right now? Give it your all.
Dive into the deep end of your life!!!!
Your homework today is to take a look at your life this past week. Where did you play it safe? Where did you hold back? Where did you live down to someone else’s expectations?
What are you going to do about that this coming week?
Next, take another look and see where you took a flying leap right into the deep end of your life. Yay YOU!
Celebrate that! Celebrate that you’re taking a chance on yourself. You believe in you!
I’m so proud of you!
