I still remember that moment vividly when I realized that I had the destiny of my life in my own hands. That I fully held the power to decide on how my life unfolds - it felt so liberating and so exciting!
Until then I had been a passive observer to my life, somebody that life happened to, somebody that was born into a set of circumstances that could not be changed. So, imagine how I felt when it became clear to me that this was not true – it was a magic explosion in my mind, and all I had ever imagined became possible in that one moment.
The key word here is “creative living” – being creative in how you design your life to make your vision come true. Realizing that every step you take is a step towards the life you love, embracing it to the fullest. Designing your life so that you wake up every morning with a smile on your face and you hop out of bed with an energy and a life force that runs deep and is a force to be reckoned with.
But how do you go about this you wonder? Are my words not shallow and wishful thinking? I tell you NO! The trick here is to take charge, to shift your awareness from passive to active participant in your life and most importantly to take responsibility.
To take responsibility for your actions, asking yourself with every decision and action you take if this reflects your goals and your life vision. The other important part to this equation is becoming clear on what your goals actually are and what you want your life to look like.
This means taking the time to turn inward to hear what you want out of life and then with that vision in mind planning out what needs to be done in order to achieve this. The next step is clear – making room in your days and weeks for these bite size actions steps you. This means sitting down and setting time aside for them in your calendar to ensure that they will happen. And so, one step at a time you will get closer to the life you wish to live. Now tell me, what will be your first step in creative living be?
