Creating The Life We Want

“Some pursue happiness, others create it.”

How freeing it is when we can live our lives without needing other people’s approval.

Sometimes we arrive to this mind set through age or loss, but those do not have to be the only two ways.

At any point, we can decide that only we fully know who we are and where we want to go.  We can believe in our goals and not be side-tracked by situations and comments that only serve to distract us from our own paths.

We can have freedom of being by believing and committing to our own lives without needing anybody else’ blessing or permission.

Once it is clear where we want to go, it becomes difficult to be concerned and distracted by other people’s comments or dramas.  That is not to say that we stop relating and assisting.  It is only that we no longer have time or energy to engage in situations which only aim to keep us stuck.

A wonderful thing that also happens when we are focused on what really matters is that our ego takes a back-seat.

If it is not important to us to show our value to anybody than our ego doesn’t need to be out there fighting to prove anything and so it too becomes engage in our personal effort.

Concentrating in living the life we want can be achieved at any point in our lives.  We just need to make the decision to do so.

“To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.” -Thich Nhat Hanh
