Signposts….they are everywhere in our world. Small, large, wooden, concrete and each displaying information for all to see. Some give indications of where to go or how far to go. The information is tangible and has substance, yet only relevant for the few. How often do you follow the signposts you encounter in everyday life? Probably not a lot if your life revolves around the same routine, the same journey day in, day out. We only truly look when we are in need; when we are lost. It is much the same for those who are searching for something more spiritual in life. Many ignore gut instincts – that innate feeling that something is not quite right. We have our own inbuilt signposts that most of us do not tune into. Maybe that is where life goes wrong. How often have you talked with someone who comments. “ if only I’d listened to my intuition, I knew it was not right,” or words similar? Being in tune with your thoughts and feelings is not a sign of mumbo jumbo or a weakness, indeed it is strength and wisdom. This time of year people follow the herd and set goals…mostly unachievable, to become a better version of themselves. To lose weight, to stop smoking, to exercise more etc… but most also fail and pretty quickly too.
To achieve change you need to have the correct mindset. In order to DO IT, you need to THINK IT and BELIEVE IT. This comes from deep within. Any life change that is sustainable has to have substance.
“Life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change.”
Change is scary. It is the Jack-in-the-Box we don’t dare to open. It is the demon we turn away from. But in a year that follows one of the most tumultuous years in recent history, we owe it to ourselves to make it one that has a positive impact on us.
“ A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
Have a selfie year. Be true to yourself and what needs to happen to make you happier. Follow your inner signposts!
Dream BIG, Sparkle MORE, Shine BRIGHTLY
