Live As You Wish

Are you living the life you long to live? If not, why not? Yes, there are certainly valid reasons—raising children, significant debt, poor health—why your options may be limited.

But chances are that the brick wall you see in front of you might just tip over with a good shove. The question is, Are you so passionate about living your dream that you are willing to accept whatever consequences await you on the other side of that wall?

Live as you will wish to have lived when you are dying.
Christian Furchtegott Gellert

For instance, if you are more interested in doing than having, perhaps it’s time to move into a smaller space to reduce your monthly overhead. If that appeals to you, what’s stopping you from following through?

If you want to travel the world, why aren’t you figuring out a way to make that happen? Explore getting a job as a travel guide or working on a community farm in exchange for room and board. Who says you have to go first class?

If you feel intimidated by certain relationships in your life, what’s preventing you from walking away? If your boss is abusive and you can’t find a comparable job elsewhere, is your health and peace of mind worth the difference in salary you’d lose if you took a lower-paying job? What’s more important to you?

These are questions that only you can answer. The question is, Are you too sure of the answers to ever get around to asking the questions?

You don’t have to fight to live as you wish. Live as you wish and pay whatever price is required.
Richard Bach

    i agree that we have to go back to the questions, the answers for which we have long been working for, sometimes blindly. These are questions of who we are, what we are about, and what will make us fulfilled and complete. Oftentimes the answers will change over time. Sometimes the questions will need to be rephrased or simplified.

    if we feel trapped in a particularly trying situation, instead of coping with it, we can try to “live” the moment – even just pondering the difference between the two can give one valuable and liberating insights.

    as for our dreams, someone once said: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.”

  2. Phil Bolsta Says:

    Well said, ArrVee. Thank you for adding your valuable insights.

    I agree totally Phil; the wall may tumble over more easily than you think, IF YOU OPEN YOUR MIND TO THE POSSIBILITY OF IT!

    When I spent 3 years in Vancouver, but told people I planned to return to my beloved Sunshine Coast (a 40 minute ferry ride from West Van), you cannot imagine how many people told me they would just love to move there. But I just knew somehow they never would. It’s the same now that we’re spending time in India, beginning to do volunteer work, & planning to work in Uganda later.

    Just about anything is possible if & when we set our minds to it! “Go for it” I say.

    *stands and applauds* Way to set and be an example, Ellen! Yep, it’s the same with jobs. When I quit a job in an abusive environment, everyone said they wish they were quitting too. But when I asked if they were circulating their resume, NO ONE was! If you don’t like your life, change it!

    Mr. Phil Bolsta,

    I wish I could do that. I know, same old excuses are the main reasons like not having enough time but the truth it I’m not a risk taker and I’m always afraid to go beyond my comfort zone. I’m not comfortable with sudden changes in my life’s routines.
    I’m trying to take one step at a time to gradually change my pacing and my routines.

    Mel

  6. Phil Bolsta Says:

    What’s the worst that could happen if you followed your heart, Mel? Your excuses are all in your mind, you know that. Here is a post you might like:

    If you’re not happy living as you do now, then why would you want to keep everything the same? I am saddened to think that many years from now, you will get to the end of your life and grieve that you never truly lived.

    This quote says it all:
    Shop for security over happiness and you buy it, at that price.
    Richard Bach
