Yes, I know those words are certainly not mine or original, but when I woke up this morning the sun was already starting to warm the earth, the sky looked wonderful and I just felt that, as the Doc said in Back to Future 3, “Marty the Future is what YOU make it”.
If we never decide to change, leave that job we don’t enjoy anymore, try that new food, go on that wonderful adventurous holiday, say yes to going out with some people from work we don’t know that well, everything in our lives will stay the same!
Ok, so that can be good for some of us, as most people are kind of afraid of change, isn’t life easier when you know what is coming? Routine can lull us into not doing anything new or different, we have family commitments, financial commitments and living our dreams or changing may seem a world away.
But each step towards that dream like putting money aside for that wonderful holiday, starting to study something that you have always been interested in, making time to do some art work when the children are in bed rather than flopping on the couch, they are all small steps towards change.
Today, I would like to invite you to think about what you would like to do with your life, something small to make a start for your new direction.
I hope the sunshine is where you are living too.
