So many times, when something good happens to a friend, I find myself thinking, “Good for her,” and behind that comment are the thoughts, “That could never happen to me.” “Things like that don’t come my way.”
I’m not one of the Lucky People that get the “dream job” the “fabulous man” the “perfect child” or whatever the issue is.
I realize that I do that a lot. Hmmm, WHY do I do that? Well, I’m not the woman with all the answers. (Does SHE Exist?) But, as a gal of a certain age, I do know one thing – when I’m being envious of someone else’s life, I know it’s time to turn the mirror around and look at myself. Because concentrating on other people – girlfriends, neighbors, J-Lo, Jennifer Lawrence and Kim Kardashian (come on, I know you do it too!) is just a way to distract us from ourselves and maybe, some hard truths or decisions, or both.
Because what happens when you do that is you realize “Luck” is something that is made. It doesn’t “just happen.”
I know sometimes it’s difficult, but not paying attention to what I call the “Cultural Static” that we are bombarded with really frees up brain-time to concentrate on YOU!
But, not in a “pick apart your defects” way. More in a “Hey, what is my Soul longing to do?” way.
Maybe it’s time to turn off the “social static” and tune into yourself. And I hope that when we all get in the habit of doing this, we can hear the answers to questions like, “What is my Inner Voice trying to tell me?” “What is it I really need to work on for a Happier Me?”
I am taking care to keep looking inward. I know I have to. The answers to my Life Questions are not on Access Hollywood. They are embedded in a deep part of my ever-seeking soul. I just need to take the journey to find them. Let’s Journey Together!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
