Have you ever wondered how your life would look if it was written in a book? Would it be a best seller, top of the charts?;Or would it be sold at the dollar store or lost in a dusty dark corner of a used book store?
Looking back at your life, there were so many opportunities to capture; Because of circumstances, you might have had to pass many of these by- you were a child, you had a child, you were taking care of an elderly parent or sick spouse, your work schedule was so hectic, your kids schedule was crazy. But in the meantime, what happened to you?
There are so many possibilities in the universe and time isn’t being kind. Tick, tock, your life is running out. It’s time to live life like you are a dog and someone left the gate open.
There is a whole world out there, waiting for you to unearth it. What will you discover, once you allow yourself to venture out?
Our bodies are only transitory, and can hold us back. After all, there are only so many hours in a day and we succumb to sleep and health issues; but how many hours, minutes, precious seconds are we wasting to the everyday grind? Yes, we have to work and pay the bills but YOU are important as well. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. It has to be fed just like your body. And, in turn it feeds the soul, which keeps the body healthy and you happy. And when you are happy, it translates to others around you… the kids, the clients, the boss, the spouse.
The hardest thing when you are a type A personality is allowing yourself time. And Time is not a gentle conqueror. It feeds. It steals and then, it’s gone.
If you took the time to find your ‘open gate’, what would you discover? Would you troll the stars online? Would you connect to a needy soul and brighten their lonely life? Would you venture out of your comfort zone and see what is beyond that gate?
Fear is a big motivator; But so is time. You are in control of your own ship and your destiny its course. If you read the book on your life, would you be happy with the ending? Would the journey along the way be an adventure you would want to read about?
The world is waiting, out that open gate. And whether you experience it in just a few minutes a day or take time to smell the roses, it is up to you to take that first step. Don’t miss that open gate… it is out there, waiting for you.The first step of the rest of your life starts with the journey of a single step. Enjoy the adventure that awaits!
