… requires a mid-course correction.

A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it.

Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never in a crisis, you’re only ever at a crossroads. You’re always being given a chance to PIVOT yourself away from what is not working and towards something that will.

Don’t fall into the drama of the crisis. Recognize that it reflects a crossroads for you. You get to evaluate your position and choose your next step. You are never stuck and you are never a victim of your circumstances. If you are unhappy where you are, make a move. Recognize that you’re always in control of your life; your life is NEVER in control of you.

You’re not having a midlife crisis, you just need to make a midcourse correction. Crossroads are always there to give you the opportunity to trade up. Are you ready for something new? The universe is waiting to give it to you.

… it makes you BETTER.

When you make a mistake, you learn better who you are and what you need to do differently in order to become more whole.

The mistake isn’t a statement of imperfection, it calls attention to the areas within you that are in a state of growth and expansion.

Mistakes are constructive  — they are the stepping stones along our path of personal growth. They take us higher into an understanding of ourselves and what we need to live our best life.

Mistakes don’t make you broken, they make you better. They change you. They highlight areas of improvement for you. They evolve you. They teach you what you will NEVER do again. They make you wiser and put you on a much better life trajectory.

Don’t feel as if you are broken because you made a mistake. Recognize that the mistake is bringing you to a much better place within yourself.

Don’t get caught up in the mistake — Let go of it — take the learning from it, transform yourself and make your life better because of it. You’ll be glad you did.

… is how it will show up for you.

It’s just the way it works.

If you see things as negative, dark and desperate, the universe will conspire to bring you more sadness, darkness and desperation. 

If you see things as positive, happy and inspiring, the universe will conspire to bring you more positivityhappiness and inspiration.

Life is a game. You have only to learn the rules of the game in order to play. The #1 rule is that YOU CREATE YOUR LIFE — you create every experience you will ever have in this life with the thoughts you think about it. So if you’re unhappy with your life, clean up your thoughts about it. See yourself as having the life of your dreams and watch that dream come into fruition.

The way you see your life is how it will show up for you. If you believe it, it will become your reality, if you don’t, it will simply fall away. Your reality is yours. How you react, how you think and how you feel molds every experience you will ever have.

Want to be happy? Don’t complicate it. Learn to see the happiness that is inherently present in your life and the universe will continually match it.

… is the only way to OPEN to your future.

It’s only when you close one door that another one opens. 

Closing the door on the past keeps your energy focused in the present. It shuts out the noise of the past and gives clarity in this moment.

When the door to the past is left open, energies get confused. It’s too easy to hear the cries of the past and be drawn back into it’s grasp. Be strong, softly close the door and open to the stillness of the present moment where you can hear the whisper of your soul.

If something or someone is in your past, it’s behind you. You can close the door on it. If it was meant to be in your present, it would be standing right in front of you and if it is meant to be part of your future, it will come and find you when it’s time.

Close the door on the past so you can get clear with your present. If your past is ever meant to come back to you, it will come knocking once it is healed. Until then, close the door on it — get still with yourself and look for the new open door that’s been waiting for you all along.

… one after another.

A moment in time is NEVER forever. A moment can change you and then it leaves you. Nothing ever stays the same; life is always in a constant state of flux.

Moments are fleeting – they can be special or they can be painful, but they cannot be forever — they’re always meant to be moved through and replaced by a new moment.

Don’t get attached to a happy moment, it is not here to stay. And don’t get attached to a unhappy moment, it’s always on its way out. 

Every moment is an opportunity for transformation. Every moment gives you a chance to recreate yourself anew — and then that moment is gone.

You’re also never trapped in a moment — if a moment in your life makes you unhappy, know that it will soon be over. That’s the beauty of the moment — you’re never where you are for very long.

Life is just a string of moments. No matter what the moment brings you — know that it’ll never last forever. Give gratitude for it and be patient with it. A new moment is coming, a new opportunity is dawning and a new chance to begin again is on its way.

… a better plan is coming together for you.

It can be no other way.

Plans are the foundation on which we build our lives. If a plan you’ve worked hard on is falling apart, it obviously isn’t strong enough to support your growth. Don’t be upset that it fell apart before its vision was realized — be grateful that you now know you require a stronger foundation and build it accordingly.

Not every plan is meant to come into fruition. Some plans are more important for where they bring you to then whether or not they materialize.

Trust the process of your life — if something doesn’t come together for you, it’s because something better is just around the corner.

The best laid plans should fall apart if they are not able to support your dreams. Be flexible. If it crashes down, step back and recognize that there is something much better coming together. Know that it’s not a punishment, it’s a reward.

Life is funny like that.

… it’s right for you.

If it depletes you, it holds no value for you.

When making decisions you always want to follow your emotional guidance system. It tells you everything you need to know about WHAT’S RIGHT for you.

Passion is your purpose — it will always lead you to the right places. Don’t doubt the inspiration coming through you. It doesn’t have to make sense. You only have to trust it and move towards it.

When you move in the direction of things that make you happy/excited/inspired, you are open to the possibilities. When you resist your inspiration and ignore what feels exciting to you, you kill the impetus for change and keep yourself locked in a pattern of frustration and stagnation.

Not everything in life is meant to be difficult. Life is meant to be joyful. Why listen to the voices of despair when the voices of excitement are so much more encouraging.

Trust your intuition — if it excites you, it’s right for you. If it depletes you, it holds no value for you. It’s your life — you’re the only one who knows the difference.
