Showing Up

30 Nov

There are a lot of different things we can do with our lives, many activities we can become involved in, many goals we can achieve and many connections to build.  Everything we want to do is possible but we will never accomplish anything unless we show up and become part of the experience.  It’s fine to dream about the things we want to do and we can talk about them forever but until we actually start doing something it doesn’t mean much.  The old saying that “talk is cheap” is correct.  We can talk about who we want to be, what we want to do and how we’re going to live indefinitely but until we put action behind our words they are empty and meaningless.  We can pretend to be moving forward without doing anything, we can talk a good game about all the things we’re planning to do and we might fool some people but we’ll never fool ourselves.  Our lives belong solely to us and what we do with them is our responsibility.  We can sit and dream or we can get up and move forward toward our goals.  Nobody will make our dreams come true for us and there are no fairy godmothers who will appear with a magic wand to make everything different.  It’s all up to us.  If we’re unhappy where we are, we can complain about our lot in life or we can step forward and change it.  It’s easy to stay in the same place and bemoan our situation but that will never bring us real happiness.  Life is an incredible gift and we can do anything we like but if we want to make the most of it, we have to do what is needed to move forward.  There isn’t anything out of reach and with determination and commitment we can achieve anything.

It’s important to be honest in everything we do including being honest with ourselves.  If we tell lies to others we damage our integrity and may lose the trust of those we care about.  Lies always bring disharmony and complications and if we lie to ourselves about what we’re doing and who we really are, it can hold us in place and keep us from moving forward.  We have incredible potential but potential is unrealized expectations and can’t become reality until we do what is needed to achieve it.  We are capable and wise and nothing can keep us from our goals if we are committed to accomplishing them.  We can make our dreams come true by being honest and changing what is needed to bring us success.

Everything worth having is worth working for.  No matter what we want to do, we can find a way to accomplish it.  Some things come easily and we move forward quickly but others may take a lot of time, planning, preparation and work.  Success is always possible but we must show up and do what is necessary to make it happen.  We can make all our dreams come true and have the lives we want the most.

Today if you’ve been thinking about a change you want to make but haven’t done anything to move toward it, take the first step.  Your life is yours to design and you can achieve any dream you desire.  Decide what you want the most and start moving toward making it a reality.  You are amazing and deserve every happiness.  Step forward and create the life you want today.
