At the beginning of each year, there is a certain level of pressure and expectation that comes with knowing you have 365 days to play with.
Suddenly everyone around you is talking about New Year’s resolutions, their plans for the year ahead and what they hope to achieve.
Sometimes all this talk of goal setting and making the new year THE BEST EVER can be more overwhelming than inspiring – not to mention stressful at the thought of one more thing to do!
When you’re surrounded by talk of achieving your dreams and ‘making it happen’ (yes, we’re guilty of that talk at Woman Rising), it is very easy to convince yourself you’re ‘too old’ to start again or find your ‘purpose’ because it’s simply too late now, and life is what it is.
Why bother, right?
Yes, you may wish you should’ve done something years ago when you had the chance (aka before children, a mortgage and huge commitments), but your life is not over and the choice you make to stay where you are, stuck in the same routine is still a choice – whether you believe it’s your choice or not.
Alternatively, think of it this way; the average woman’s life expectancy is 75 years of age. Let’s say you’re 35; you still have another 40 years to live.
That’s your life all over again and then some…
Is it still too late?
Now, don’t mistake me, I’m not saying you need to throw in the towel, quit your day job and move to an island, but there is never a time like now to start identifying how you REALLY want to spend your life, what you still want to achieve, change or experience and how you might go about creating change in order to live the life you desire.
No stress, no pressure, just allow yourself permission to visualise the life that’s hidden beneath the surface. Once you can get clear on what it is you desire from life, then you can start to take steps towards creating the life you love one day at a time, little by little.
Here are some thought starters to help you gain a clear vision of your life ahead:
- How do you love spending your time?
- What do you loathe doing?
- How can you reduce spending time on doing things you loathe?
- How can you increase doing things you love?
- What impact does your new and improved life vision have on others? How can you ‘sell’ them the benefits of what you want to do?
