My Future |


My future is just like yours, a blank canvas. What am I going to stand up and live for? I have no idea what is coming my way, but I believe it’s going to be good. Good in what way- every way because I believe what happens to me can always be used for my good and learning.

I didn’t picture my life looking like this when I was younger. I’m not sure how many people could look at their

life and think, “Yes, I thought this is the way it was going to go!”

There are so many choices that can make our lives turn a complete 180. Some of those choices are ours and some of them are other choices that then affect us.

What I believe is we are here on this earth to grow and develop personally. I am going to make the most of that!

I have learned to create boundaries. I’m not great at it yet. These personal boundaries make me feel safe, and secure and feel right to my gut. If someone is negative in my life I push them outside of my safe zone. I would rather have fewer people in my life as long as they are all positive.

I learned that life is a bunch of habits. The choices I make each minute, hour, and day are what create my life and most of those choices are out of habit. So if I want to change my life, I need to change my habits.

Now I’m looking deeply at my beliefs and how they came into my life. I’m slowly thinking through each one and giving myself time- like years to process them and if I want to believe they are true for me right now. I am digging really deep into this and am kind of going deep inside my cocoon again to think.

Compassion has become more and more important to me and I believe that everyone is doing the best they can with what they have been given. I find so much compassion for those going through tough times- especially loss of any kind. I know how that hurts your heart and when your heart changes it can become open and even more loving. It’s quite a beautiful process even though a lot of it is ugly and dark. Coming out of the darkness into the light is what makes it wonderful.

The future looks bright for everyone if we can be positive and look for the good. We are all in this together! (That’s another belief I have!)

What are you going to do with your future? What choices are you going to make?
