How to Take Charge of Your Life

It’s the first day of a new month & I’ve got a challenge for you.


When I got back to the States, I was just relieved to be home. A few days later, the “reality” of the situation slapped me across the face. I grieved. I was angry. I was confused. All of it. I spent a lot of time staring into what I don’t know.

Fast forward to this week. I’m grateful. I’m curious & inspired. I’m focused. I’ve been reading, writing, getting things done and working on my dreams.

With a little shift in perspective, I’m seeing my situation for the BLESSING it is. I know I wouldn’t have done what I needed to if someone didn’t make me. So I had my fun until life forced me to take a seat. At the moment I have no commitments or obligations (other than healing). That means the full 24hrs in the day are all mine. That’s incredible. I can no longer use “I don’t have time” as an excuse to sit on my gifts and ignore my dreams. So I’m working. Head down, getting shit done.

You may be thinking- that’s great but what does it have to do with me? Today as you journal, meditate, have some “me time”…reflect on last month. What situations came up that you viewed as negative? Can you find the light in them now? What excuses did you make for not accomplishing your goals? How can you turn those excuses into affirmations? From “I don’t have enough time” to “I will manage my time responsibly today”. Turn your “woe is me” into defined goals and a new attitude of get her done.

This month, focus on your perspective and take charge of your life. Our stories aren’t the same but I guarantee you there is more joy, success, and positivity out there waiting to be welcomed into your life. It’s up to you to open that door.
