After a strange night full of strange and rather scary dreams, I woke up with a line in my head : "your story is still being written".
Many of us think that once we reach a certain age or milestone, we think will that is that - my life has now being lived. There is no way to make a change or think new thoughts or be a new person. Although we all watch these make over shows whether on a person or home, and think WOW I wish I could do that. But still we stay in the same position as we were yesterday.
I truly believe that no matter your age or stage, there is always room for growth, knowledge, wisdom, adventure and new experiences. Whether your new experience is travelling the world, or making a new friend or trying out pottery -what is holding you back ? Whatever your answer to this question, just always remember that our stories are still being written.
Each day that we wake up, get dressed, go to work, drink a coffee - there is always a new experience waiting to happen. Just being open to something new no matter big or small, can give you fresh insight into yourself and the world around us.
If you had told the 20 year old Me that you will leave South Africa to live in Panama, and then leave Panama to live in China. I would have categorically told you "that you are CRAZY and best move away from me."
Sometimes all it takes, is to open the curtain in our brains, to see the fresh new possibilities that lie beyond.
Every day bit by bit your story is being written and it is only over when it is over. Leave your emotional baggage behind, live with no regrets, put on your walking shoes and red lipstick..... and just LIVE !
Leave me a comment below and tell me what makes you jump out of bed to start a new day.
Much love, Jen
