defining our terms…

14 Nov

We are put here on this beautiful Earth to live a life of love & joy. We are here to experience all that life has to offer. The ups and downs, the swings and roundabouts. All learning experiences and experiences that should ultimately¬†create a life of joy. So why do so many of us let our lives be defined by other people’s terms, other people’s wishes.

As children we do what our parents tell us to do and for the most part we are given rules and regulations to keep us safe. It gives us boundaries and a foundation from which to grow. Then as we get older we are supposed to define our own terms for living, yet so rarely do we get to do this. The society in which we grow up in plays a big part in moulding us, not always for the better. And even when we are doing things in a way that is not congruent with our heart and soul, if the rest of society is doing it then we are less likely to question it and rather follow blindly the terms that have been set before us.

This has to change.

We need to start defining life by our own terms, by what makes our heart sing. The only way we can get to experience the quintessential truth of who we are is by defining the terms of our life, following the rules that we were born with, which if truth be known is usually only one rule Рto live a life filled with joy and love.

It doesn’t matter what anyone else is doing. Follow your heart, your mind and your gut. These three brains make up one big brain that can put you on the right path to living a life that is blessed with great joy, abundant love and wonderful experiences. A life which is defined by our own terms is a life well lived. Don’t go to your deathbed and wish that you had done things differently. Live, love and laugh your way through a life filled with wonderful memories and cherished relationships. These will be the things you take with you to your next life.

Until Next Time…Think Big & Blossom!
