I have survived life by telling myself that the reason why I go through all of the crazy things I do is so I can help others when they find themselves in similar situations. Honestly I don’t know if that is true or not but it works for me! Yes, I have had some HUGE life changes of late! I made the BIG move out of state. I am currently expanding my business in a whole new area. No it wasn’t easy leaving everything and everyone I knew at the height of my career (to date that is:)…..after all I am just getting started…lol) but I can tell you that I am truly loving my life! However, it has occurred to me lately that sometimes I think I make things look to easy!
It is funny to me how many people think I just woke up one day and said, “I am moving”. Actually the move was in the works for at least 2 years. I didn’t win lotto and there was no lucky charm involved. It took a lot of work, a lot of tears and a complete letting go and trusting that the Universe had my back. It took NOT listening to all the people who weren’t supportive and focusing only on those who shared my vision. It took a LOT of patience (not my strong point) and a heck of a lot of determination!
I feel like I have learned more in the last few years then I have at any other time in my life! I feel like I now have a direct connect with the Universe! Everything is so crystal clear now! Yes, there are moments when I go “why did I not get this sooner”? The truth is we grow and change when we are ready. I think that point in time is different for all of us. While our situations and challenges are all different I do think there is one thing that people who make huge life changes have in common. We have all reached a point where we have said “I HAVE HAD ENOUGH”!
I do not know why we set such limits on ourselves. It seems like our society teaches us that we should be happy with what little we may have as others have it worst. We are told that not everyone gets to have a prosperous and happy life as that is just for the chosen few. WHY? Why can’t we all have jobs we love, be in the best health, live everyday in a happy and blissful place, enjoy wonderful supportive relationships? The answer is because we have been told we can’t! Well now I am telling you that is not true!
I keep telling everyone that I have not left the state….I have left the planet! I have found a place where people are sincerely happy and enjoying life! They do not live in a perpetual state of stress and anxiety. People talk to each other, wave just to say hello and everyone always takes the time to ask you how your day is going! Many people here have lived that “other life” of sacrificing, suffering and struggling. BUT at some point they made the choice to make a change for the better. They overcame their fear of change and letting go! They said, “I HAVE HAD ENOUGH”!
People ask me all the time why I share such personal stuff about my life. I share because I know what it was like to be lost, confused and feel hopeless. I want to show people that you do not have to be stuck in that space. Yes, letting go is hard and there will be things you need to sacrifice but isn’t your happiness worth it? Can you even imagine your life working a job your love, getting up everyday with so much happiness in your heart that you question whether you are dreaming and being surrounded by people who are in the same positive and wonderful space that you are in?
I still wake up in the morning one eye at a time. I just need to take a peek and make sure I really am here…living my new life and loving every second of it. Sometimes I just sit and think about all the horrific things I have gone through in the last few years and now it seems like a lifetime ago. I realize now that I was always waiting for someone else and something else to change. The funny thing is I had everything I needed all this time….I had myself! The fact is at the end of the day you are the ONLY one who can make the choice to change your life. You are the only one who can say …..I HAVE HAD ENOUGH!
