What is your current situation. What are you doing? What would you like to be doing? How do you see your life in 10 years from now? Who do you want to be involved in your future? Do you require a change in career? Do you need to put yourself out there more? Is there something else you could be doing to achieve that dream you’ve always had.
Today is an opportunity to think back about what you have achieved, what you would like to achieve and to plan what you want to achieve next. I believe life is about pushing yourself. Always celebrate your successes but don’t get comfortable, don’t be afraid of change and most importantly don’t be afraid to live your life for yourself. We all have things we want to do in our lives and just because what you want to do doesn’t involve someone else it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t follow that dream. You need to do what’s right by you. There is nothing worse than looking back and thinking, I wish I took that trip or I wish I had have done that. You can’t just live your life to please someone else. Whether that be your parents, friends or a partner you need to live life for you.
I’m not saying you should be heartless and selfish walk with grace always treat others how you would like to be treated and never burn bridges you never know when you might need someone again or what the future has in store for you so tread carefully but do what you need to do to leave this planet with no regrets or as few regrets as possible.
I’m sure you will agree 2016 has come around faster than you could ever imagine and it’s time to put a plan in place you need to think about what you want to achieve this year and then plan the smaller steps that you need to take to achieve that goal. If you don’t know what you want to do that is totally fine as well. Use 2016 as a year to decide where to next. Rather than living it up and partying this year save as much money as you can. Travel as many places as you can. See if there is a place where you feel at home, it might be a city away it might be on the other side of the planet. There are no wrong or right answers you’ve just got to put it out there to the universe and go find it. What ever that might be. Life has a plan for you but sometimes it takes some searching to uncover what that plan is. Sometimes it requires some support from someone but you will know when the time is right! If you’ve got an important decision to make think about it, then don’t. If you feel peaceful about that decision then you’re making the right one. If you feel uneasy or are concerned about it take some more time to think about it before you take the leap. Yes time goes quickly but rash decisions don’t help anyone.
I stumbled across a video today, the concept was simple, but it got me thinking. I will pop it below but if you don’t feel like watching it here’s a brief synopsis. Someone places a giant chalkboard in New York City with the words ‘What’s Your Biggest Regret?’ random members of the public then post their thoughts on what they regret most in life. Those regrets included “Never going after my dreams,” “Not making the most of every day,” “Not saying I love you” “Not staying in touch.” All of these things are regrets about things people hadn’t done. There was never a regret of trying something and it not working out. I think that is a massive thing to remember while sometimes not everything will work out you learn from the experience and hey at least you tried. It is so much more valuable to try and things not work out than to not try at all. I refuse to say try and fail, or try and not succeed. No attempt is ever without purpose which means it’s never a waste.
I’m not really sure why I wrote this or if it even make sense but if you’ve got a lot on your mind I hope some how this jumble of words has helped pull things into perspective. All the best with that tricky decision you’ve got to make!
Let’s make 2016 the year of you! Go get it!
