"Infuse your life with action. Don't wait for it to happen. Make it happen. Make your own future. Make your own hope. Make your own love. And whatever your beliefs, honor your creator, not by passively waiting for grace to come down from upon high, but by doing what you can to make grace happen... yourself, right now, right down here on Earth." ~ Bradley Whitford
Are you waiting for life to happen?
Stop waiting and act!
Each of us has an idea of what our dream life looks like. For some, it's travelling while for others it's a house full of children. Think hard about your dream life.
For me, my dream life looks eerily similar to the life I'm living right now. I'm writing every day while helping authors in whatever way I can. I'm expanding our business and gaining new clients. I'm reading books for a living. I'm married to the love of my life. I'm paying down personal debt. Yup, looks like my dream life alright.
Don't get the impression that it's all hearts and flowers. I work my bum off from 6:30 am until well past 5:00 pm. I deal with a cross-section of authors from the bestsellers to the debut indie authors. On top of that, I have to run our household and make sure every chore gets done. In the evening, I collapse on our loveseat and feel more like a zombie than human. *checks for heartbeat* Yup, still beating.
Life is what you make it. If you're looking for success, go after it. If you want love, spread love to others. If you want less stress, cut down the activities and/or people which stress you out. If you want to pursue a new career, go for it!
Your dream life is waiting for you to take the first step. Are you ready?
