No More Excuses!
Article by Wendy McCance
You’ll never really live your life if you are closed up!
People have walls up because they don’t want to be hurt. Some people are unable to make a decision for fear of making the wrong choice. There are people who hold in their feelings afraid of how others might react to who they really are. Some people will always follow the crowd, choose the “safe” path because the unknown is too frightening for them to attempt.
How can you live your life in any of these scenarios?
If your walls are up, you are isolating yourself.
If you don’t make a choice, you avoid having experiences.
If you don’t show people who you really are, you won’t have true friends.
If you don’t attempt the unknown path, you will lead a dull life.
If you are closed up, you aren’t living. You are missing out on real connections, deep feelings, excitement, challenges, fulfillment and ultimately meaning to your life.
When you die, how will others remember you? How would you like to be remembered? If life is a gift, and the things you can do with this gift are endless, why aren’t you excited about your present? Why aren’t you unwrapping your gift and trying it out? It will never become too worn down. It will never look old and broken unless it is neglected.
Live your life fully. There is nothing to fear unless you get to the end of your days with regret. No one should ever have to feel regret, only happiness over a life well lived. No matter what your personal obstacles are, you are still capable of creating your best life for yourself.
Starting today, celebrate life and live it!
