Life is meant to be lived and you were meant to have it all.
No, don’t laugh, you were really meant to have it all. It’s just that you did not know “what it all” means to you.
Your family may have told you to go to college, get a degree, get a job, set up a retirement account, get married, buy a house, have a baby, etc.
But, just maybe, having everything your parents had does not mean you have it all.
Maybe you tried but ended up tired, drained of emotion, and with a wounded spirit. You’re confused over what you really want. You feel guilty and are full of resentment or jealousy of others who have what you think you desire.
What is meant by “Having it all”?
What you may not have realized is that “Having it all” doesn’t mean having everything all at once, all the time. While many will tell you that you cannot have it all (True!), I will tell you that you can have it all.
You can have it all if you first know what you want. Desires can change with the time of day. True desires wax and wane but are ever-present.
Then you create the change in you to take action towards the things you want.
And along the way, you will become more intentional and selective. You immerse yourself in learning and making the hard changes.
You learn how to manage fear, guilt, shame and any other emotions
You accept you are who you are and use all tools and resources available to you.
Learn how to get stronger, learn how to use your life to get stronger as you get older.
You check your consistent patterns of thinking and acting. You adapt and change.
You accept where you are at in this point in your life. You accept your family has high expectations of you, that you need to stand on your two feet along.
You learn to love imbalance in your life because you accept that imbalance is a consequence of going after exactly what you want in life.
You can have it all.
