Have you ever been told (or told yourself) ‘you can’t do…(something)’ or this is just the way life is? It might be followed by a reason like you’re too old, too young, too fat, too thin, not good enough or my personal favorite; This is who you are and you can’t change your lot in life. If so, it’s time to re-invent your thoughts about what you can do, the life you can create and who you can be!
You know what you want and how you would like to design your life. You are the inventor and creator! YOU are the one who has the ability to create or re-invent yourself. Do you show your amazing invention with the world? Does someone other than you hold the patent for your life? Is the patent pending, waiting for someone else’s approval?
As the inventor of your life you get to choose the direction you take and the ‘parts’ you want to include. No one can infringe on your creation unless you allow them to. You hold a patent that doesn’t need anyone else’s approval.
So often the focus is on all those things we want and don’t have or the things we wish to create yet we ‘but’ them to death with excuses as to why we can’t do it. Oh yes, the big BUT! Can you imagine what life would be like if the great inventors in history said ‘but it’s never been done, but it won’t work, but there’s no time, but it’s always been done this way, but this is just the way I am’. If they listened to all the naysayers who laughed at their ideas we certainly wouldn’t have cars, airplanes or telephones let alone the internet. These inventors had courage, strength of conviction, curiosity to try something new and the passion to keep trying. If one way didn’t work, they would try another; re-inventing until their creation finally came out as they dreamed it would.
Your life is an ongoing invention. The beauty of it is that you get to invent and re-invent yourself each day if you allow your curiosity and zest for life lead you. Give your dreams a voice and take the steps necessary to make them real. Listen to your inner voice to give you direction. Allow your creativity to flow. Raise your vibration and having-ness. Find healthy ways to heal your mind, body, spirit & soul.
“And in the end it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”~Abraham Lincoln
You have the ability to turn your life around by creating it every day. You re-invent your life by living the life YOU want regardless of your past or what anyone has said you can or can’t do AND you are only limited by your imagination. 🙂 Put life in your years and ENJOY your creation! ~Shine Your Light Debbie
