Your True Life

The most common regret of the dying is this: They wished they’d had the courage to live a life true to themselves and not the life others expected of them.

Have you heard or read that or something similar before? What do you think about it?

More importantly, what are you going to do about it to ensure those don’t become your words?

I invite you to spend some time reflecting on the question above, just as I have been doing.

There is a place just below your heart, in your solar plexus that knows your path. All of us are here to lead a meaningful life. That means something different for each of us and we must listen to our own inner voice.

Every moment counts, every moment is an opportunity to choose.

Are you on auto pilot? Why do you do what you do? Is it habit, is it expected of you or is it an intentional choice? Is it your choice or someone else’s? Is it because you want to or because you think you should.

We can start over right now. We can create our true life based purely on our own personal beliefs. We need to get intentional. I invite you look at your schedule, your habits, your rituals and ask yourself, what would I do?

One of my teachers, Anita Moojani, suggests asking yourself this question: What would I do if no one was watching? This can help you determine if you find meaning in what you are doing without the influence of others.

Another one of my teachers, Dr. Tererai Trent, suggests that if you are not sure what brings you meaning, simply ask yourself this question: What breaks my heart?

How are you living a life true to yourself? What one little thing can you do today to get on your true path?

Be well. Live Intentionally. Create a life you love.

Much love, Brenda
