Stuck in a hum drum routine … sleep, wake, crawl out of bed, work, eat, sleep & repeat. And repeat. And repeat. Why settle for dreams, wishes, and hopes for an amazing life. Live your dreams today.
Are you caught in the vortex of boredom with your dreams of a different life on hold.
Are you unmotivated, uninspired and unfulfilled?
The only way out of a spiralling vortex of unfullfillment is change. In order to create the life you dream of, you have to be the one to change. Don’t make the mistake of blaming someone else for your choices and dissatisfaction. Turn the mirror around and face yourself and try do at least one thing to make your life ridiculously amazing each and every day.
Here are five ways to step into your life and make it ridiculously amazing:
As in move, breath, sweat. You can’t be ridiculously amazing borrowing a hole into your couch or glued to your computer screen. You have to get up and move! Get the blood flowing, muscles fired up and the energy levels inspired. And the million excuses you will come up, shelf them. If you can walk to the fridge, you can move. Go for a walk, dance, do yoga… something. Just move. And then while you’re doing so, move on to number 2.
2. Check in and take notice
One thing that is consistent is that life is continuously changing. And it will pass you by in the blink of an eye if you don’t take notice of it. Start by checking in and paying attention to the little things that happen on a daily basis. Take notice of the elements during your commute to work. Check in and stay present. So even when you’re doing the dishes, it becomes a mini adventure. Anything can and will happen, but it’s up to you to take notice. So open your eyes, ears, mind. Rediscover your senses. When you pause and actually notice the little things, what you see might surprise you.
Sweet juicy love. Get the love juice flowing for your friends, family, partner, pets. Basically anyone or thing that shares your space. Try to sweeten the pot with some unconditional love. Pets, easy. People, maybe not so much so try to practice first and foremost on YOUrself. Drown yourself in a giant pot of love juice. Be kind & nourishing to yourself in deliciously healthy ways.
When we start to treat ourselves as though we are worthy, we set amazing things in motion. After all, we can’t tap into love if we don’t love ourselves first.
Remember that four letter word? If you don’t, seek out a niece, nephew, your child or a friends child. Watch, listen and learn. Life has enough serious moments without us purposely adding to the mix. It’s okay to let lose and let your inner child come out and play once in a while. Be silly, dance, sing and laugh a lot. Don’t let anyone dampen your silliness. I did that, it’s wasn’t fun. Now I play. A lot. Everyday. With my crazy dogs. In the beautiful sea. On my yoga mat. And with my boyfriend. They nourish my quirky side and allow me to be me. Which makes me smile a lot. As a bonus, they’re helping me develop gorgeous laugh lines… much prettier than the frown lines I was working on before.
5. Leap outside your comfort zone
Don’t think. Get like Nike and just do it! Leap, jump, dive into something that takes you outside your comfort zone, something that scares you a little or a lot. Amazing things happen when we open the door to life and let our senses explore.
When you step outside your comfort zone and try new things, visit new places, create new adventures, you give back to you ten fold. Embrace what comes up when you take a chance on life. The good with the bad because it will help you grow as a friend, lover, mother or father.
Take charge of your life. If you’re unsatisfied, do something. Your life won’t change unless you create the change. So get things moving, go dance in the rain, kiss your partner deeply, try a new taste, take the road less travelled, open your eyes and drink in the sights. There’s beauty to be found in simplicity. Make the choice to step up to the bat and hit a ridiculously amazing home run in this fabulously messy thing we call life.
