Part of what makes life truly yours to own is about being in charge of your destiny. Sometimes there are things in life that we never foresee but what we need to do is take advantage of these unforeseen circumstances, accumulate them and turn them into something that is a part of us. When we get older we can worry about what the future holds but what can we do to make sure that we make the next steps we take in life, whatever they may be, truly ours? And when we get older or enter a new decade, what can we do to make sure that whatever we do next is for us? How can you make the next decade of our life yours to own?
Can You Mold Your Future?
Some people don’t like not knowing what comes next and this means that they feel anxious. And while you can certainly go for a tarot card reading and uncover the minutiae of Minor Arcana, the information it presents may not be music to your ears. As a result, we have got to think about taking control of our future by doing what we want to achieve it. A lot of people feel that it’s just about letting life take them down a certain pathway. But if you don’t like where it is taking you, what can you do about it? If you really want to take ownership of your life you need to take control over it. This means that learning to mold your future is about understanding what you can control but also letting go of the things that you cannot.
What Do You Define As Important?
If you want to take control over certain aspects of your life or revamp it completely you’ve got to ask yourself “what is actually important to me?” The things that you define as important will be different from the next person. Once you truly start to uncover the realities behind these questions you can then begin to make certain preparations. For example, if you view a financially stable life to be more important than anything else you’ve got to work towards this. When you start to find the things that are important, whether it’s financial, professional, or personal, you’ve got to be aware that these things can change. But what’s important to you right now is likely to form a key part of your psychological makeup. Some people like the idea of comfort, whereas others have a more nomadic sensibility. And as soon as you start to ask yourself what’s important to you and your life, you can start to get rid of all of the distractions. We can spend our entire lives focusing on things that aren’t important. As the saying goes, life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans.
One of the top regrets of the dying is that they wish they had been true to themselves. If there are parts of your life that you regret the most important thing is that you understand that now is the opportunity to start again. So many people feel that because something has happened that it should shape them and they’ve got to let it form a crucial part of who they are. We don’t have to be one type of person. One of the most frustrating aspects of embracing any changes that there are people around you that won’t allow you to do it partly because they are used to you being a certain way. But whether this is toxic friends or certain family members you’ve got to accept that they may hold up barriers. What’s important is that you don’t have regrets. And even if there are mistakes you make along the way, these are valuable lessons.
To truly take ownership over your life you must remember that as you get older you become more resilient, more resourceful, and you learn more. And while learning to make changes is a long road, you must remember that making any alteration to your life if is about taking ownership of everything you do as the first port of call. We can spend so long blaming external factors for the reasons we are a certain way. But as soon as we make peace with this and start to accept who we are, this is when we can truly make positive changes in our lives. If you want to make the next year or decade of your life yours to own you have to get back in contact with this person that occupies your body.
