I have a sign in my apartment that reads, “This is your world. Shape it or someone else will.” When I first saw it, I thought it was so spot on. How are you shaping your life? Are you taking time to examine and recognize what you want your life to look like? I know what you’re going to say, ‘how am I supposed to take time to do that when I have to work all day, and my email inbox is full, and the kids need my attention, and I’ve got a million things I’ve got to and and and and and.’ Whew!
Well, I don’t have kids, but I do have a demanding job, my inbox is jam packed, and I’m pretty busy too. But, I did devote my day off last week to thinking about what i want my life to be, and I know, without a doubt, I want to inspire people. I have other dreams too – I want to be the best anchor I can possibly be, and one day, have a show on the OWN network that spreads inspiration by telling people’s amazing stories of perseverance and persistence. And once a day, my iPhone alarm goes off reminding me to “read my goals.” I think that’s a pretty good start towards walking confidently towards the life I want to shape. Please share with me how you take active steps to shape your life – I’d love to hear!
