5 years ago, I had a #breakthroughmoment that made me re-evaluate the way I was living my life.
I began feeling the way I believe people who had #neardeathexperiences feel.
With eyes wide open for the first time in my life, I knew I needed to make some changes.
I believe I was #reborn that day.
My new life would be an #intentional one. A life where everything I did would be on purpose.
It was no longer about doing what I “should” do (I refer to this as shoulding on yourself) it was about doing what I wanted to do…what brought me the most amount of #joy . No matter how much it bucks the system of #societalnorms.
Yesterday my husband and I had the greatest day. It consisted of way too many calories, way too many cocktails, and the absolute perfect amount of love and joy.
We laughed so fucking hard, we shared so deeply, we expressed so much gratitude…we lived the dream.
My pants will be too tight next week but it was worth every pound.
When it’s done on purpose…it’s worth it.
When it’s done mindlessly it will destroy you. It will lead you down a path of regret and self-destruction.
It’s so important you know this is a LEARNED BEHAVIOR. I was not born this way. It took me 39 years of blindly walking through life before I finally got to this point.
I want everyone to experience this feeling. Whether you’re 20, 40, 60, or 80…it’s never too late.
Be intentional. Say I love you first, say no to the things you don’t want, say hell yes to the things you do want…no matter how ridiculous it sounds in your head.
Be on purpose!
