Living for the weekends.
This was a shirt I saw on a woman this morning at Starbucks.
Yesterday, I was working with a gentleman and he looked at me as he left my office and said, “Thank goodness it is Friday.”
My attorney for my custody case with my ex texted me, “His attorney has not responded yet, so I called and found out that her office closes at 1pm on Fridays. Must be nice.”
Is that when your life begins?
Is then when you decide to allow joy in? Connect? Do the things you want?
Okay so maybe it is not just weekends.
I bet you are more like….
Friday at 5pm. ( or whatever your 5pm end of the workday is)
And an occasion fake sick day.
Does that sound more like it?
Do you live for that two or three weeks of vacation you get every year. Planning out where you are going to park your ass. Thinking about how much down time you can handle. And what you will do with it.
Does this sound like LIVING?
It sure the f-ck does not to me.
It never has.
I have never been a good employee.
Which is why I gave being one up at the ripe old age of 23.
Almost 20 years later and I can honestly tell you that even with all the trials, the suffering, the stress of what came because I chose a path to follow my heart and soul that I would not play my cards any different.
I would not choose to sell my life off by the hour to some corporation.
It just is not me.
I am my own BOSS.
Always have been.
The trick to being my own BOSS and being good at it has been the learning of what it means to get daily more and more into soul alignment.
To not allow my fear,
or anyone else’s to get in the way of what I am being called to do.
This is the toughest thing to do and yet it is so simple.
I cannot share with you my gratitude for the life that I have manifested for myself and my family.
I watch it blossom into something that I could never have imagined possible.
All because I CLAIMED IT.
I CHOOSE it.
And it is true choosing.
That is the lesson I want to express to you today.
You cannot just give it lip service.
You must COMMIT to it.
Commit to yourself.
Commit to the JOURNEY.
The journey is one that will test you.
It is one that will make you weep,
give you butterflies in your stomach,
make you ache and shudder in fear.
It will captivate you if you let it.
And this will be the only path that you can take once you venture far enough down the trail to your SOUL.
But the expression of your soul,
it is so beautiful.
It is the light that this world,
that the people you love and cherish,
That is IF….
if you CHOOSE to reveal yourself.
And to CLAIM YOUR LIFE.
Which means that the weekends will no longer mean anything.
It will cast out the five o’clock hour, because it is pointless and control that you will no longer live by.
It will say PTO days…Bah-hahaha.
It will look at your schedule, your vacations which will now just be your life,
and it will smile at its splendor.
Your soul expression will carry you to the heights that God wants you to be living at.
It is there.
It is there that you will find your happiness.
Not a step in any other direction.
But will you say YES?
Will you step into this greatness?
Will you build your legacy?
Or will you just continue on this path that society has set out for you,
living for the weekends?
Living according to someone else’s agenda?
I am here to tell you that if I can go from raising five children on $17k a year and getting government assistance to traveling the world, working an average of 15 hours a week from anywhere that I proclaim, and making a multi-six figure income as a single mom to seven. That YOU CAN have your dreams too.
And no I did not do this in some MLM company.
I do not work for anyone but myself.
All I ever do,
is show up as me.
Live as my soul desires.
Share what I am called to share.
And reveal my SOUL EXPRESSION.
I continuously CHOOSE to step more into alignment with who I am.
And THAT is ALL I do.
Moment by Moment.
What will you Choose?
