Have you ever heard people say, “I used to have no fear and I took risk?” or “I used to be spontaneous and life was fun!” How about this one? “I used to be happier.”
Who is this “used to be” person? What happen to that person? Life happened to them? Some of us are fortunate enough that we are still that person with no fear, spontaneous and happy…
But others had been conditioned throughout their lives; that life is full of things to be afraid of, risk equal lost. Everything they do must be planned out. Happiness is for the young and free, adult got responsibility! You see these people had forgotten what it feels like to have their heart pound with excitement and their spirit soars! They have allowed life to deplete their passion. Believe me when I tell you “Life will beat your passion out of you, if you let it!” So, don’t EVER let that happen.
Get back in touch with the person you used to be. The person who would look at a situation with the eyes of possibility and not the eyes of fears. The person who will say “Yes, to life and ask Why not”? The person that have time for happiness… You see, that is the real you, the ‘You’ before life done a number on you.
Wouldn’t you want to show up every day in the real you? Leave your baggage of history behind, everyday is a fresh new day. It don’t matter what happen the last 10, or 20 years. Be willing to set yourself free from you history. Today is a new day, choose to show up in the real you? All it takes if for you to be willing to start.
