What is the next step for you? Where do you want to go? Do you even know?
Rebecca considered herself a strong woman. She had never been out of work. She had gone to school, done all the things she was supposed to and was now living the life her parents had hoped for her. She should be content. She should be happy.
But, something was missing.
And now, she was a Mum. She loved her Kids like no one could even begin to understand and still there was a part of her that longed for more. Every so often, little bursts of a dream would escape into her daily life. She would catch herself daydreaming about other things she could do.
Yet, they were not practical, were they?
This was life, real life. She had to do the normal day to day stuff and plod along. What more could she expect?
Then one day, just as she had finished ranting and complaining about how boring life was to a friend. The friend looked her in the eye and said “What are you going to do about it?, What is the next step?”
She was stumped! She realised she had no idea. She had spent so much time focused on the things she did not want and did not like, yet she did not know what she did want and what she liked.
Is the same thing happening to you? Are you focused on the things you hate about your life, focused on the things you do not want? So focused that you feel helpless and trapped in this life that is not like you hoped it would be. All those dreams you had in your ‘youth’ seem miles away in the daily slog.
I believe you do know the next step but something inside of you is blocking it out. Something inside of you is petrified about the concept of trying something again that failed so dismally the last time. Something inside of you is trapped under other people’s opinions of what you should or should not do.
So what IS the next step? You still say “I don’t know”
Start today to focus on what you DO want
First of all, take out a piece of paper, preferably a journal, write down all the things you do want. Write down what you want your life to look like this time next year, this time in five years. Really visualise what your best life could be. Write it all down. Shut up the little voice that says it cannot be done, just sit down and write, write, write.
Then break it down into little steps and…
Take the next step
It is that simple. Just take the next step and see where that takes you. Then go right back your journal, remind yourself of your vision of the future, tweak it if necessary and take the next step.
Try not to over-think it. Just DO it. I believe in you.
