There’s a phrase that I like to remind myself of often:
those who believe in magic, are those who get to experience it.
It may seem like a throw away remark, but I beg to differ. Our reality is created on a moment by moment basis, based on our thoughts and actions. The moment I realised this, my entire universe opened up. It was like someone ‘turned on the lights’ to what was possible for my life and living.
Suddenly I was no longer stuck in the mindset of things ‘happening to me’, and I started to wonder … “wow, if I’m that capable of creating the mess I once called my life, fuelled by drama, imagine what would happen if I shifted the focus of my thoughts to creating the life of my dreams.”
And so that is how I made and continue to make changes. By changing my thoughts, my daily choices, and my moment by moment actions.
Yes, I still slip, stumble and crash … and in those tumbles, I try to learn the lesson that it taught me, so that I can have more awareness about the situation. And then once I’ve dusted that dirt off my chest, it’s time to send out another wish in to the universe, and to take the steps to actualise it in my life.
So, I would love to leave you with another of my favourite phrases …
If not now, then when?
If not you, then who?
What do you wish for, in your life?
