I love this picture, and it is even more appropriate as we had the ‘Super Moon’ Sunday night.
The picture for me represents freedom; it represents a dream, a hope, a wish, a desire.
There is just something special about it.
The little girl and her cat are walking the tightrope of life.. to wherever her dreams are..
I feel like I’ve been walking that tightrope of life lately, and that’s definitely not a bad thing. I’ve been following a certain path, which I have chosen, and have already hit trials and tribulations along the way. I am so excited to carry on this path.. to walking my tightrope of life, gazing down now and then to see what else is going on, but carrying on steadfast… to happiness. Every day happiness.
Once you feel the shift in yourself, when you make the decision to live and live fully and to live with purpose, there is really just nothing like it. And that’s where I am at, right now.
Its so easy to carry on just being, just cruising through life, dealing with whatever happens as it happens. But its a completely different world, once you open yourself up to chances and challenges and start making things happen to put yourself out there, delving head first into new things.
It’s liberating to say the least.
I want everyone to feel like this though; I want you all to want this for yourselves.
I see so many people every day, just living, just coz’… what’s that about?
We have SO much going for us… so many things to see and to do and to BE.
Why would you choose anything less… this is your life, we have ONE SHOT people!
No one ever said life was meant to be easy, and don’t think i’m saying that sunshine and rainbows shoot out of my areas every.single.day… coz’ that just isn’t true… but once the mind shift happens, you just try to flip off the negatives and rock on through with the positives. It becomes a habit, the BEST habit.
I’m not in LOVE with my current job, but I’m working on that, working on my NICHE, my ‘thang’. And I am content and grateful that I have a job and that its funding my life and other dreams and desires that I have.
I am really at peace where I am in life right now, and I know I have said this before, but it really is about perception. Perception of ALL.THE.THINGS changes the way you think.. you can chose the negative perception of all or you can try and see the positives in the situations presented.
It’s taken me a few months to get a grasp on this, and the start of the year seemed to be the blackest of all my years, but upon reflection I see why it all happened and I can honestly say I am THANKFUL, because I would have just kept cruising along, kept living my same same boring life.
Instead now, I am reaching for my dreams and watching them come into fruition. I am meeting new people from all walks of life who are walking along this very similar path. And something which is really rocking my world is that I am re connecting with old friends, who were lost along the way.
I am walking the tightrope, I am walking my path. My tightrope is bouncy and fragile and I may stumble along the way, but I am determined on my path.. and like all tightropes, there IS a safety net… But I’m not planning on using it… If my tighrope does want to fling me off at one point or another for whatever reasons, I am going to see to it that I do a triple pike before landing safely on my feet!
Life is good. I am grateful for what I have. I am happy that I’m finally seeing the FULL picture.
Are you happy with your current path ? Are you willing to change it if not ?
