What I Want
I know that I can create the life I want. I am doing it. Right now. Today. Each time I make a decision to step outside my comfort zone, to ask for what I want, to DO things, I am actively choosing to live my life.
I am reading The Secret by Rhonda Byrne.
Earlier this year I decided to start this blog as a way to share my journey, a way to try and inspire myself, and others, to really live. To start now, no matter where they are at in life. To really think about and decide what they want in life and then start taking steps toward it.
And then, suddenly, here is this book.
I do not know why, after all these years of this book sitting on my shelf unread, that I decided to open and read this book.
The universe? Synchronicity? Perhaps my change in outlook has drawn this book to me. I do not know.
What I do know is that The Secret supports me in my want to LIVE life. It tells me that I *can* have, be and do exactly what I want and that the universe will conspire to help me. This is so reminiscent of Paul Coelho and his fable The Alchemist...which if you have not read, I highly suggest it! (It was suggested to me and I am immensely grateful.)
The universe is speaking to me in so many ways. I am listening. I am attuned. I try to follow.
I suggested last week that we need to DECIDE what we want and then we have to go after it. After reading some of The Secret I was overcome with a desire to write down "The Things I Want". I had an amazing moment of clarity where my mind was filled with the things that I really wanted. I had a compulsion to write them all down.
