A running conversation my wife Amy and I have is centered on the question, “What is the life we are trying to create?”
Not only is it a powerful question for us, but it is also a question we return to often. We try to gain clarity on the vision we have for our lives. We try to be thoughtful and purposeful about who we want to be and what we’re about. We need to make time to see where our separate visions can be blended together. We want to return to the question in order to cast a new vision for our future (because visions and futures do change). What we envisioned at age 25 differed from what our vision was at 35, and so on.
The process of recasting the vision for our lives never ends until we’re unwilling to cast it any differently or live into it. It is exceedingly liberating to me to realize that we all have the power to recast our vision for our lives and step into new chapters of health, happiness, focus, and learning.
We all have the ability to write a new script for how we choose to live today and tomorrow.
We all have a choice in the life we live.
What is your goal for today? This week? This month? This quarter? This year?
As you gain clarity, remember—it is possible!
What are one to three action items you can contribute today to begin to bring your vision to life?
