I Just Want To Be

I don’t want to change the world. I don’t care about being famous or flying around the world on a private jet. I just want to be.

I want a loving, healthy relationship, a happy, healthy family, to be debt-free, and I want to own my own home. I enjoy being comfortable. 

RoseBut in this crazy world, my dream sounds boring. In this crazy world, being comfortable and content with your life means you’re not stretching – you’re not trying hard enough – you’re not thinking BIG enough – you’re not enough.

We have to stop.

I feel so very blessed with my life. I have everything I ever hoped for, and I’m happy. I may not be the next Suze Orman or the next Marianne Williamson, but I’m going to be the first ME. And the best way that I know how to do this is to simply be. We can’t keep comparing ourselves to everyone else – we have to remember our own dreams. Focus on our own life – it’s not selfish – it’s essential. Focusing on other people is actually much easier than focusing on our own self.

Build the life that you TRULY want – not the life you think you should want. Along the way, remember to pet the puppy, smell the flowers, and smile at the sky. Just be.
