In fact, it was as if time stood still.
Until that moment Karen always had a “list” of things that had to be done. You know…you’ve probably got one, too!
There were bills to pay, people who needed her, projects that just wouldn’t work – not without her.
Karen’s the kind of person you could always count on. She’s never been satisfied with just ‘good enough’. She strives for excellence in everything she does. And she’s dedicated her life to being the best she could be.
From Karen’s perspective, the world will stop spinning on its axis if she dropped the ball on any one of those things that keep her running…never once stopping to catch her breath.
But she was tired. It felt like she was working so hard — all the time. And there was no end in sight!
Suddenly, everything stopped. Everything…
She couldn’t DO anything. At least, not the way she used to.
Looking back, it’s always easier to see the synchronicity of things. But while you’re in it…well, that’s another story!
Karen couldn’t escape into the distraction of her life. She was faced with herself, laying there wondering, “Is this really the meaning of life? Is that all there is? What is my life purpose?”
As Karen thought about the answers to these questions, she got in touch with that place deep within her soul.
Suddenly she realized — there IS more! She had gotten lost among the shuffle of her own life, on her journey to finding the meaning of life and her true life purpose.
Karen now knew that it was time to …
- Re-evaluate her priorities
- Find a place for HER in her life
- Start living every moment as if it really matters. Because it does!
This was Karen’s opportunity to get off the merry-go-round! But if she didn’t make the CHOICE to step off of it once and for all, she would miss this chance (just as she had missed so many other chances to get off the merry-go-round earlier in her life!) and be left continuing to spin out of control, losing herself in the process.
Have you chosen to grasp your opportunity to get off the merry-go-round of life yet?
If you’ve gotten caught up in the constant demands of your life that seem to be pulling you in all directions, don’t let it take a life-threatening event to stop the craziness and start living your life purpose! It doesn’t have to!
Here are three simple steps to start you off in the right direction.
STOP! what you’re doing right now and:
- Acknowledge how precious your life is (while you still have time)
- Re-evaluate your priorities (so you do what matters right now)
- Make time for yourself every day (so you can start loving your life!)
You’ve gotten in a habit of leaving yourself out of the equation of your own life. If you keep doing what you’ve always done, you’ll keep getting what you’ve always gotten. You won’t get a different result until you STOP! the momentum and make different choices!
You deserve better!
Take a deep breath, and acknowledge that being alive is a GIFT.
The fact that you are here, hearing this message or reading this message, is no accident!
You are choosing to make a change for the better in your life and you’ll get the help you need to implement that change!
From now on, instead of bouncing from one ‘have-to’ to another, ask yourself if the task that you’re facing is really that important. Think about it in these terms…
One hundred years from now, will it have really mattered if you got that one thing done…or not?
Don’t let your life slip away like sand through your fingers! Make sure the things that really matter are the things you give your time, energy and talent to!
Starting today … schedule time for you to take care of yourself every day! That’s right…EVERY day.
What are you going to do for yourself today? Put it on your calendar.
If you’d like to experience just how alive you really are — and what a difference you are already making just by being YOU — take the 21-Day “I AM a Gift to the World!” Challenge. It’s your chance to step off the Merry-Go-Round of life once and for all — and it won’t cost you a single penny!
