Do you know what you want?
If not, you’re not alone.
Most women who come to me have no idea what it is they really want. They simply know that where they are now is out of alignment with their heart’s desire. Frequently, they’re at a turning point, realizing that time is slipping away from them and that they want more for themselves and their life then they see on the path in front of them. Continuing on this path – one lined with unhappiness, lack of purpose, and lack of direction can feel ominous and empty.
So what’s a girl to do? —
Here are 3 ways to find your heart’s desire:
1) Listen to what your heart is whispering.
Sometimes, its not that we don’t know what we want, its that what we want feels so hard to fathom, so difficult to get, that we brush it off. We tell ourselves that we don’t really want it, or that our desires are things that “other people” get to have – but not us. Those are thoughts that our idle minds are squawking at us – literally. To know what you really want for yourself, connect to your inner wisdom, listen to your heart and let your body be your guide to greatness.
2) Live in the NOW.
We’ve all heard the phrase, “There’s no time like the present”, yet many of us tend to live in the past or the future, looking for life and enjoyment inside our minds, rather than inside our lives. Look at what makes you happy right now, today. How would you live today differently if it was to be your last?
3) Do what is unfamiliar.
We are creatures of habit. We like comfort, familiarity and don’t do well we change. Those same habits are the ones that cause us boredom. We find ourselves wanting something different, but acting the same. This causes a discord that makes us stuck, unhappy and unfulfilled. If you want something to be different, you must act differently. Take a new route to work. Order something new from your favorite restaurant. Ask a stranger how their day is. Allow life to unfold in unfamiliar ways.
