I’ve had this in my draft for a while now. It’s a new post that will build on other blogs to help other people live the life they’ve always wanted. It’s things, some big changes, some small, that have helped me get to this place in my life. I’ve had it on my heart to share, even if only it helps one person.

Let’s get to it!!

Living your best life. It something everyone wants, but a lot just don’t know how to get there. I’ve heard people say if they just could win the lottery then they’d have their best life ever! Or if they could just find their soul mate they would have their perfect life. While both of these things are nice to have, it doesn’t help you live your best life.

Living your best life is a process and it involves steps. But if you are committed, really committed then you can and will get there!

So where do you start?

Everything starts with a decision.

Whether you want to lose weight, or get your dream job, or write a book, you have to decide to do these things.

When i wrote my first book VEILED SECRETS, I didn’t go into with the mindset of ‘oh I’ll write this one story and see where it goes’. I wrote it because i had a story in my heart and I knew I wanted to be a writer. Before VEILED SECRETS was done i already had another story (another series) already in my head. But first i had to make the decision that i was going to be a writer. It didn’t matter if no one ever read anything i wrote ( i mean it would terribly sad) I was going to keep writing.

I had always known in my heart what i wanted to do. Even if the outside world told me it was a crazy idea that would never make me a cent. It took a drastic situation in my personal life to force me into making the decision to become a writer. Damn the consequences.

There is something you want to do, something you may be too scared to tell your friends and family. But this thing keeps you up and night and you can’t stop thinking about it. That’s because your intuition is telling you what you need to do to make yourself complete and happy.

The first step in Living Your Best life is to make a decision to do so. You may already know what you want to do for the rest of your life. Great! Then make a decision to become that thing that burns in your soul.

What if you don’t know what it is you are supposed to be doing? You’re unhappy right now, and you know things need to change. Maybe you are in a job you hate, a toxic relationship, or just don’t feel alive in your life. If you don’t know what you are called to do in this life then grab a notebook and go somewhere quiet, preferably outside, in nature. Write down what you think your perfect life would look like. If you don’t know what you want to do as a career then write down things you like doing. For instance, helping people, taking care of animals, giving a speech to a large crowd, seeing the world, etc. Then start looking up careers that fit these descriptions. For instance, helping people ~ nurse, doctor, teacher, pastor. Seeing the world~ travel agent, vacation blogger, military. Taking care of animals~ vet, vet assistant, owner of animal shelter, own a working farm.

Keep at your list, adding to it and taking away until you find three things that really speak to you. Then find people who are in these fields and talk to them. Sometimes you can shadow them for a day at work and see how you like it.

You have this one life to live. Spend it doing what you were always meant to be doing.
