If I want to be free, I’ve got to be me! Bill Gove

Have you ever wondered if this is all there is?  Do you have dreams that you’ve stuffed away or a job you’d love to leave, but you’re afraid to leave it? Do you feel like you have to continue doing what you’re doing so you don’t let others down?  Living an authentic life is about living the life you want, not the life others think you should have.

Why is it that we feel we have to live for everyone else and we often put ourselves at the bottom of the list?  Maybe you didn’t pursue your dream because your parents or mentors told you it wasn’t a viable career choice or you weren’t meant to do such a thing.  Maybe you’re living with a relationship that doesn’t feel right to you because you don’t want to disappoint others.

It’s time you listen to yourself, I mean really listen.  What is your inner voice telling you?  Do you hear a message or have a thought over and over?  I challenge you to listen to your inner voice, really pay attention to what it’s saying to you.

Think about what your life would be like if you listened to that voice, if you followed those dreams?  Think about how you would feel, how you would look, where you’d be, who would be with you, the smells, the sounds.  Picture everything about living that life.

You are worthy of the life you want!  Remember today is the first day of the rest of your life.  Ask yourself what would you do if you knew you could not fail?

I challenge you to take one step toward YOUR dream(s) today, and every day.
