“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” -Steve Jobs
Today is very much in keeping with yesterday’s theme on time, because it is such an important concept to adopt if we are to find the health and happiness we all seek.
Women in particular are very good at living according to someone else’s agenda, needs and values–forgoing their dreams, aspirations and values. Being a woman who has done this many times in her life, I can attest to how important it is that women start to take control of their own lives, for their health and the health of their families.
Men can find themselves in the same situation; however, I find it a more common theme for women.
We are a generation in transition, letting go of old value systems that no longer serve the construct of today’s society. Men are no longer the only bread winners in the family, and women are looking for more fulfillment beyond taking care of the family and home.
This can lead to a competition of sorts over whose goals, values, and desires are more important. The answer is neither. Both are of equal importance and need to be treated as such.
So for the women out there, make sure the life you are living is of your choice and brings you all that you want from life. For the men out there, make sure you are not asking your partner or the women in your life to forego her life to fit into yours. Even if as women you are willing, make sure it comes from a place of love and not fear.
Is your heart singing? Do you wake up happy? At the end of the day to you feel energized and joyful? Do you feel excited about where your life is going? Do you feel a sense of purpose?
We all have bad days, however if the answer is “no” to most or all these questions on a regular basis then you need to ask yourself these hard questions. Whose life is it you are living? If it is not yours then what is holding you back?
Life is meant to be healthy and happy. Living a life of your choice is your birthright. Start living your life.
