The only thing that stands between you and what you want is YOU. Lately I’ve been thinking about my attitude towards life, reflecting on thoughts that developed into actions that developed into regrets and turned into lessons. One of the biggest lessons life keeps teaching me is the power I hold over my life. Life doesn’t just happen to you. You make life what you want it to be.
I think we don’t spend enough time thinking about what it is we want. I mean in ALL aspects of life – health, finances, spirituality, friendship, family, love. So many of us simply accept the circumstances we find ourselves in and adapt to suit them. It’s so easy to do this that you don’t even realise you are doing it. Question is, why?
I think that settling, in any aspect in life, comes from the belief that you cannot attain what you desire, that the situation is as good as it gets and maybe it’s as good as you get. But time and time I see that, nobody can declare my worth other than me. The value I have, is the value that I believe I have. I decide my worth, not life, not circumstances, worldly titles or worldly standards.
I truly believe that it is possible to have everything you want. All you have to do is decide what it is you want and believe that you deserve it and can achieve it. I don’t have a single friend who has ever said I couldn’t do one thing, I purposely choose to surround myself with people who believe in me and want me to succeed. In the journey to completely loving myself, I am learning that to love me is to respect my worth and understand my value.
I deserve everything I want from life, from love, from myself. And so do you. x MC
