We all want the best life imaginable. We want fulfilling relationships filled with love and connection and a career that we never get tired of.
But how many of us women actually KNOW how to create that for ourselves? I mean, heck, as women we don’t have nearly as many role models to look to for inspiration and guidance on how to truly create the best lives for ourselves.
It’s easy to just sit and wonder puzzled over where to even begin. So here are 5 things that every woman needs to remember in order to create the life of their dreams.
No person or thing else can make us happy – we have to give that to ourselves!
The habit that many of us fall into is thinking that other people and things are going to fulfill us. We buy a brand new Gucci purse thinking that’s going to make our lack of emotional fulfillment in our job feel so much better. We latch on to our new boyfriend with this underlying belief that “he will complete us” in some way.
The “tough love” truth here is that NONE of those things are going to make you fulfilled – or, at least, not for very long. The only way that we can make ourselves happy and fulfilled is by doing things to give it to ourselves.
So stop and ask yourself: What activities make me happy? What makes me feel happy and fulfilled as I do it? Then start incorporating that into your daily life!
ALL emotions are valid.
Many of us women are either taught by our families or ex-boyfriends that our feelings and ridiculous and we simply just shouldn’t have them. Well I’m here to tell you that is completely RIDICULOUS! Emotions are the underlying drive to everything that happens in this world.
So rather than fall into the classic mental trap of “Oh I can’t express this emotion because people will think its ridiculous”, change the mindset to “This is my emotion. It is real, it is valid, and it deserves to be nourished”.
Take care of yourself. Except how you feel and do what you need to make yourself feel better.
Each and every one of us is struggle with our own unique battle.
Every single person is struggling in this world and, because of that, every single person is doing the best they can do at this point in time. When we fully accept that, we can save ourselves a lot of unnecessary stress.
We can’t create the life of our dreams if we’re living someone else’s life.
Be willing to express your uniqueness to the world. If every female in your family is a nurse and you don’t want to be a nurse, then don’t do it! Be YOU. Do what is best for YOU, not what other’s expect of you.
We ALL deserve the best life imaginable.
The single biggest reason many of us struggle to create the life of our dreams is because we don’t BELIEVE we deserve it. There’s always that little voice in our heads that tells us “Why do I deserve the life of my dreams?” Well, who and what says that you DON’T deserve it? You are a wonderful human being and deserve to receive all the things your heart desires. The more you believe that deep within yourself, the closer you get to achieving it.
