It’s easy to drift through life with no particular destination in mind. The problem with drifting is that, before long, you realize you’re not getting anywhere. Had enough? Ready to pull out your map and choose a destination? You can’t chart a course if you don’t know where you’re going.
With a sea of possibilities in front of you, how do you choose a direction? Start by pondering the answers to these four questions:
What do I value?
What would I like to experience?
How do I enjoy investing my energy: time, talents and money?
When I am old and looking back, what would I regret not having done?
For added inspiration, check out Bronnie Ware’s book, The Five Regrets of the Dying. Ware is an Australian nurse who spent several years caring for patients in the last 12 weeks of their lives. She recorded their dying epiphanies in a blog, which gathered so much attention that she put her observations into a book which became a runaway Hay House bestseller. Here’s the summary from her experience:
- I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
- I wish I hadn’t worked so hard.
- I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.
- I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
- I wish that I had let myself be happier.
What’s your greatest regret so far? What will you set out to change or achieve before you die?
Often, we only discover what matters after we are already “under sail.” No worries. Life is a process of setting out, adjusting your course and trusting yourself to find your personal True North. Be bold, pick a destination, hoist your sail, stay tuned to the Frequency and adjust your course as you receive further insight.
Your Source is excellent, limitless and reliable. Everything you need to manifest the life you dream of is at your disposal: quality, quantity and dependability. Dream big—you’re worth it!
