Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want in my life and what I want to be doing, both in my career pursuits and in my personal life.
Funny, but I keep butting up against tiny little boxes that other people live in, want to put me in, and sometimes that I even want to put myself in.
Smallness of mind.
Then I remind myself that the world is my effing oyster and that I will not be judged. I will define my own truth.
If we listen to what everyone around us thinks and to the ways that everyone else wants us to live, we will at the very least be confused, but likely will be miserable.
Whether we like it or not, people judge us every single day. Yet I will not be judged. I refuse to give away my power to others who think I should live my life differently than how I choose.
Others cannot possibly know what makes you tick in the ways that you can know. Others cannot possibly dream your dreams. Only you can set your imagination free and determine how it is you would like to live your life, from the trivial and mundane to the critically important.
We live in an amazing time when most people – at least in the free world – can choose to live their lives entirely of their own design and march to the beat of their own drummer, no matter how quirky or offbeat, or even mainstream. And in realizing this – that my life can be whatever I choose to make it, I begin to define my truth.
Are you living the life you feel compelled to live? Perhaps it’s time to define your truth.
