I found an old journal (2004 era) and I'm still giggling… it was nearly 10 years ago and it's all the same shit! hahha i'm so fat… I gotta lose some weight… I'm going to the gym…. I love my husband… my kids are so gorgeous…. and on it goes….. it really is all the same stuff ! There were hopes and dreams in it, and I'm happy and proud to say that I have ticked some of them off !
I found something that was stuck up the back.
I don't know where I got it from, so I apologise for not crediting anyone ( i did google some of the phrases…but found nothing)…
Here's what it reads:
"If you have always done it that way, it is probably wrong" Charles Kettering
Ever find yourself doing the same old thing over and over again? Do you sometimes feel like you're just barely going through the motions, not really doing your best or giving your best? Has your daily routine become, well monotonously routine, almost boring you to tears? has your life lost it's sizzle, its sparkle, it's pizzaz? Has your get up and go has got up went?
If so, maybe you need a serious change of pace.
Instead of ho-humming your way through another duller than dull, mind numbing day, why not stir things up by trying something different and see what happens? rather than sticking to the same dreary routine, why not add a little flavour, a little spice to your life? Instead of wasting one more day just putting in your time, why not put your time to work? And make your life the special adventure it deserves to be.
"Change is not merely necessary to life - it is life." Alvin Toffler
If life isn't taking you where you want to go, then why in the world should you keep moving in the same direction? If what you're presently doing isn't what you truly want to do, then why on earth should you keep doing it? The only sure way to get a different result is to do things differently. The only sure way to make your life better is to MAKE your life better. And make it better right now.
Far too many people repeatedly bang their heads against the wall, constantly doing the same things time and time again. And while they keep on getting the same lousy results, they just keep on banging away. For some reason, they never learn that the only thing you get from banging your head is one hell of a headache.
"Things do not change, we do." Henry David Thoreau
Many people sadly settle for crumbs when they could have had the whole loaf. And while these folks want to do better, want to have more, want to make their dreams come tru, they never take a chance and make some changes. They never venture out of their comfy zone and make something happen. They never show the guts, the gumption or the grit to go for the gusto. And their lives become a shadow of what they could have been.
How about you? Is your life going the way you want it to go? Are you currently pursuing your dreams, living life with purpose adn passion? is your life all it could be, all it should be and more? Or is there something missing? are there things you'd dearly love to change but have never got around to changing?
"Only I can change my life. No one can do it for me." Carol Burnett
If your not pleased with where you're headed, here's an idea. Why not change direction? If you're not happy with your job, why not find one that's a better fit? If you're not pleased with with the results you are getting day in and day out, why not try something altogether different; something exciting, something rousing, something that really get you going?
When you're not doing what you love to do; life is not a whole lot of fun. In fact, it can be downright depressing on occasion. And that's no way to go through life.
Instead of humdrumming you way through life, why not shake things up a little? In fact, why not really shake things up a lot? Why not pursue your dreams with all of your heart and soul? why not make some big, bold, dynamic changes and turn your life completely around?
You'll discover that living the life you deserve is not only a lot of fun; it sure beats banging your head again the wall.
Bottom Line: If you want to change where you're going, you've got to change what you're doing.
and that's it. I still believe it, the same way that I did in 2004 - and the fact is, I did eventually do something about it… I took the leap and started all of this.. The Lovely Bird! Go on, grow a pair and do something amazing…. live your dream.
