There is a saying, popular among Alcoholics Anonymous proponents, that when one pays more attention to the issues others have than to ones own life challenges, that you are “renting space in you head” for them to store their troubles with you – so they can sleep like a baby while you sit up worrying about what they’re doing and why. Or with whom.
Perhaps its time to take down your “For Rent” sign, and focus your time and intentions on the positive aspects of your life: the health and well-being of yourself, those you love and who love you, and the world in general. Though a trite question when we are immersed in the swirl of our ever expanding social and professional concerns, it’s still worth asking: If this were my last few days on earth, how would I spend them? And what am I doing that I would stop doing?
Don’t wait. What really are you waiting for? Move into the positive, and begin to re-create your dreams with all of your “head space” available for the task. It will leave more room for dreaming of a better tomorrow, and for planning to make your dreams come true.
