“For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all of the horrors of the half lived life”
Herman Melville (1819-1891)
Only if … that is a phrase that is heard often, only if I had ________________. At the end of the day the energy just to get home from work may be all that is left. You look at the scale; it’s not what you want to see. In fact there are a lot of things that you are tired of and the weight of life is pressing down on you with a lot of force. There is no time to be happy and there is no time to be sad. There is no time to improve a relationship, there is no time to improve your personal growth, there is no time to understand who you are, there is no time to get healthier, there is no time to work on your career, and there is no time to time to relax. That might be the description of a life that is being half lived. What if there was a way to live life fully, with greater joy, greater happiness, greater results, and better outcomes?
Living a full and happy life is not something to dream about, it is something that be obtained. If the dream has been put away then pull that dream back out, look at it, examine it and then work on it.
Imagine what it would be like to live in the place of your dreams. Imagine the peace, joy and happiness that would find in that dream. Imagine that your dream is coming real.
What does it take to make that shift? It takes a shift in the energy level you have from a negative level to a positive level. See yourself as the person creating your dreams. See yourself living your dream. Now, it isn’t quite that easy, but with some work it can be done. Sometimes people just need some help identifying and then executing towards their new future.
Are you living your life full of peace and joy?
