Life is Not A Dress Rehearsal

As I raise my personal vibration through self-examination, it's become very apparent that others around me are having trouble with the changes.  At first it made me sad that others were not there to support me, but then I started to re-frame it and realize that it has nothing to do with me.  It's on them!  Perhaps a change in me has triggered something in them that they dream of changing and just don't have the courage to. Perhaps they are looking outside instead of looking inside.  Again, not something for me to worry about but to move past. My journey of self-realization has been happening over the course of more than a few years.  It's taken shape in everything from workshops, to coaching, to fitness and beyond.  It's been a struggle sometimes, but more than ever now, it's been a road to joy, amazing stories and a sense of being very grateful to the Universe for all that has come to me.  It's hard work but I'm glad I am pushing forward on this path.

Someone told me just a few months ago that my soul's blueprint is that I am here to help people see their true selves.  It's a tough job but someone has to do it.  How am I going to accomplish this when I am trying to stay in my own lane?  Perhaps it's just by being a example to others that it's never too late to change, or to move forward.  It's never too late to take those things that you have always wanted to do and act on them. Do you want to travel the world, have a successful business, adopt a child?  NOW is the time to do them.  It's not something to wait to do, because as I have discussed in the past, tomorrow may never come.

There are all kinds of reasons and excuses to not go forward on your path.  Maybe you say that a spouse is holding you back or that you have to be home for your child. Perhaps you are saying that you will start a new fitness routine tomorrow, but never get around to it because it's easier to just stay rooted where you are.  What will this story look like in a year or two from now?  Will you be in the same cycle that you were two years ago?  How will that feel?  I'm guessing, not too great.  I've been in these situations before and thankfully, have dug down deep in order to see that it's time to move past them.  Just realizing this is the first step to doing something on that new journey.  If you change just one thing a week, for example swap out a healthy food for a previously unhealthy food, look how far you will be in a year!

Life is not a dress rehearsal.  We get one shot at this folks.  We get one body to borrow and one mind to use.  What will it say to our children or others around us if we don't take these gifts to heart and use them to their fullest potentials?  I'm betting that we might not get the chance to do it all over again.  Enjoy your life, live your life, and get out there and rock this one shot we have!!

"Look at what you want to change, gather a few people who believe in it like you do, and start moving forward. It's important to remember that you don't always need a destination. Sometimes, you just have to make forward motion. And you absolutely can." -  Debby Ryan
