My decision to work from home this year has me thinking more and more about our reality. Mainly, how easy it is to mold, and create whatever we want. Every single decision we make, leads to a new reality for us. Even the smallest decisions can lead us to completely different realities.
I’ll be using myself as an example here…
I was super stressed out last year. To the point where it simply was no longer fun. I was neglecting my family, friends, girlfriend etc… My entire life was consumed by work, and I wasn’t even aware of it until I was deep in. Almost to the point where I didn’t know how to get out, and take back control of my life. Pretty scary place to be, especially if you’ve never experienced that feeling before.
I had absolutely no idea what to do, but I knew I needed to get out of the situation I had put myself in. For me, it was a slow and painful process, but I’m sure next time will be slightly faster, and slightly less painful! I looked at what I’d like my ideal life to look like, and I worked backwards to get to a point where I had a good idea of what I needed to do to make that life a reality. I broke things down by month, week, and eventually daily tasks that I thought would get me to where I wanted to be.
Now, I know planning out life is impossible. Nothing goes exactly the way we
plan it, because that’s not how life works =). However, visualizing what your
ideal life looks like, and taking the right actions to get there, will most likely
lead you on a path which is more along the lines of what you want to be doing
with your time here.
I haven’t been perfect in my daily routine, however I have been improving. I can
say I am drastically happier with my life now, vs a few months ago. All it took
was a decision, a lot of resistance =), and more than anything, lots of action!!
Playing around with various realities is the fun part. You get to collect all
the things you like about all of them, and lump them into a new reality for
Have yourselves an awesome day!
