โ† CHAPTER OVERVIEW

Where do you want to go in life?

Dear Creatrix,

What was it like for you to fill in the Wheel of Life worksheet, and how did it look?

Which area of your life could you begin with to bring in more love, joy and success?

I’ll share some of my own experiences with the Wheel of Life in one of the upcoming lessons, but before we get there, I’d like to invite you to pause for a second, because we have two more exercises in the lesson today, which deserve all your attention and consideration.

The next two exercises hold the potential to direct the course of the rest of your life.

Sounds important? That’s because it is.

 

But let’s start in the here and now:

Where are you at in your life right now?

I’m 43 years old, so I am somewhat in the middle of my life. I have a feeling/knowing that I will turn 113 – so I intend to have 70 more years.

That might seem like a lot, but is it really?

Looking back, my life has already been a big adventure, so I’m super excited for all that is to come – in the next 70 years or whatever time I have left.

The thing is, whether we believe that we will live for another five, ten, or 90 years, our days on this planet are numbered, yet often we delay our happiness to some future that may or may not ever come.

It’s easy to think: “Once I’ve done this, or achieved that or found this – then I’ll be happy, take good care of myself or prioritize my own needs and wishes.”

But will that day ever come? Will we ever get everything that we think we need for it done?

And do we really need to get these things done to be happy, or can we admit that we’re making excuses?

I promise you that that day will only come, once you stop making excuses and begin to make yourself happy.

When you decide, it is here and now.

If we don’t make a conscious move towards this, our lives will just continue as they are.

A body in motion tends to stay in motion.

And then we can easily end up on our deathbed, looking back, thinking if I had only … when I still had the time and energy to do it.

Which is today and now.

So let’s begin to make some changes!

Bronnie Ware, a palliative nurse, wrote a bestselling book called: The Top Five Regrets of the Dying.

And what she found out can help us to change things, before it’s too late.

These are the top 5 regrets people have on their deathbed:

  1. I wish Iโ€™d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.
  2. I wish I hadnโ€™t worked so hard.
  3. I wish Iโ€™d had the courage to express my feelings.
  4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.
  5. I wish I had let myself be happier.

What do you think about them?

Looking at your life right now, if you didn’t commit to changing something, could you end up with the same regrets?

Then let’s get to the exercises.
