Are You Living or Just Existing?

Inside of each and every one of us is a part of our being that we can’t physically see or touch.

It’s a part of us that guides us through each day. It's an inner spirit or soul that we have that intuitively picks up on the world around us. Whatever we want to call it, we can’t deny that it’s there and resides within us.

As children we were so connected to this part of our being. We played, we laughed, we loved, we cried, we imagined and we created. It was just natural. There were no outside stressors of the world and many responsibilities to carry out each day. We lived fully present in the moment. However, as we got older we lost touch with this inner child. We began to live life on schedule completing daily tasks checking them off one at a time. It’s as if we put blinders on and conditioned ourselves to live our days buried in work and responsibilities. Each day becomes almost indistinguishable as the last. We became blind to letting in new ideas, people and adventures.

Would you call this living or existing? As Dr. Deepak Chopra would say, we began living with restrictive awareness.

We are all here for a reason. We have a great purpose in life.

We are meant to be expressive, creative and guided by our imaginations.

If you could do anything your heart desires with nothing holding you back, what would you do?

Take a moment to reflect. Would you spend more time with your family and friends? Would you travel, exploring new places? Would you learn a new skill like playing an instrument or learning to paint? Would you create an extraordinary life leaving the ordinary behind? Would you follow your dreams? What would happen if outside distractions were taken away and you were just left with your inner child who desperately wants to come out and play again.

Of course we still need to pay bills, put food on the table and so on but the time to start living is now. Your daily responsibilities do not need to be the rulers of your life.

Time will pass as it always does but you have the choice as to whether or not to be in the same place a year, a month or even a day from now,

You already have everything it takes to live your life to your full potential.

It simply begins with a choice. A choice to tune in to your inner spirit and listen to what you really want to be doing. A choice to use your imagination to create and open new doors. A choice to come out and play like the child you once were. It’s all still inside of you, you may have just gotten a little side tracked. Instead, it’s time to have an open awareness, where the awards in life are unlimited!

One thing we can count on is life will either pass us by, as time doesn’t stop and wait for us, or we will step up and create our destinies and enjoy each day we are given.

I encourage you to listen to your inner spirit and live the life you so deserve.

It’s your life, it’s your time to spend and you were meant to do great things with it.
