Seems we whiz through life with blinders on. Get up, go to work, come home, TV, back to bed, rinse and repeat. Sound like you? This was definitely me a few years ago. Mind you, I was in a relationship that I felt, at the time, I was stuck in (you are never stuck anywhere, but that’s another blog post). There were many life questions I knew I had to ask myself to get some clarity .
I had a life but it was boring as hell and I yearned for more. I desperately longed for more and I knew in my heart of hearts there WAS more. Somewhere out there, there was more. It was up to me to find it. So I started to ask myself some much needed questions.
I get that many of us are in jobs we really don’t like but we have to pay the bills, right?. I also get that many of us are in relationships that no longer offer any sort of fulfillment. So many of us just feel stuck (there’s that word again).
How many of you are sitting in your comfy recliner looking out the window with a nice cup of tea, ok or a glass filled with wine, and wondering to yourself “is there more?”. Well there certainly is. To find it is certainly not for the faint of heart.
If you are thinking to yourself that life has more to offer, here are some life questions that maybe you should take some time to ask yourself to see if you are, indeed, ready for a new and exciting life. One filled with happiness, adventure, love and joy.
Here are 5 life questions to ask yourself today.
Am I happy enough right now?
By right now and by happy enough I mean, with your work, your relationships, yourself, your surroundings. When you stop and take stock of everything in your life right now, are you happy? Is there room for improvement? Can something go to make room for more goodness in your life? Don’t be afraid to take inventory to see what’s ok and what’s gotta go. This is my favourite life question. We’re too busy making others happy. What about you?
Am I doing enough?
Enough for yourself. Can you dream bigger, can you take more chances, are you giving back to the world and the community and people? Can you do more for the people around you or maybe even your local homeless shelter? Is travel on your mind? Maybe some ziplining adventures? Are you doing enough in your life for you and the people around you?
Am I ever going to realize this dream?
You have a dream inside of you that is slowly dying. Every now and then you bring it to the surface, look at it, pet it and put it back in the depths of your soul and your heart. You long to live it but………….but what? Why haven’t you? What are you afraid of? Life? Living? Failure? Success? Just do it, whatever it is that you want to do, go do it.
What am I missing?
What ARE you missing? Thrills, adventures, love, freedom, peace, joy, happiness any or all of the above? Did you know that all that wants you too? Is there a place you want to go see, a car you really want to drive, a picture you want to paint? Is there an anxiety, a tugging in your heart that is saying “Hey come on, let’s do this!!”?
Could I do this?
Do you desperately want to leave a job, spouse, friendship, whatever, but are really unsure? You’re not sure if you can make it on your own. You’re not sure if you have the guts to leave. You’re just scared of leaving and scared of life after you leave. So many unknowns. So much fear. So much overwhelm. So many thought provoking life questions!!
whatever you want. Really. The only thing standing in your way of a dream life is you. Sorry, yes I said it. YOU are in your own way. Your fears will stop you every time!
You know, this is the only life you have here. One chance. That’s it that’s all. How do you want to live it? In fear, sadness, in a comfort zone and full of “I wish”es or one of ridiculous joy, because when it comes right down to it, that’s what we’re all here for anyway. A life of ridiculous joy. Go live it.
Who’s up for ziplining this weekend?
Peace and Love
