The holidays have passed and everyone is getting back into normal routines. For many this means getting back to a normal work schedule and resuming more typical, and sometimes mundane, activities.
Every day we have a choice regarding how we live our lives. Society has told us what is expected of us and what the ramifications are if we don’t follow suit. Do you spend many hours each week working on something you don’t believe in or enjoy? Or perhaps you are working towards your dream but don’t know what steps to take? Perhaps you have too much going on and can’t seem to find the time to make anything happen.
I invite you to think about what you would do if you had no limits. If you had enough money and security and could create anything imaginable, what would that look like? And how would you get there? Be specific – don’t just say you want to save the world or learn to paint – think of something more specific. If you were to be featured on the cover of Time Magazine as person of the year, what specifically would you want be known for?
What would you do if you had no limits on your power to create?
Take perhaps 15 or 20 minutes and write down your ideas and dreams. Once you have a general idea, take time to further define your ideas. What kinds of steps would you take to get there? You can set aside time to work on this in whatever way works for you.
Get a new notebook that you will enjoy using. Start brainstorming, doodling, and finding creative ways to express that which you hold in your heart. What resides in the core of your being? What are you here to do? to enjoy? to create?
