Dealing with Your Shit

Shit happens. It comes into everyone’s life. No one has an easy life. It just doesn’t happen. We all struggle. If you look at someone and think that they have their shit together, guess what? They don’t.

Everyone is insecure. Everyone has problems. Everyone wishes at some time or another that they were someone else. There’s this saying – and I’m paraphrasing – that if you put your problems into a pile with everyone else’s, you’d still pick your own problems.

Why? It’s easier to manage your own shit than the shit that other people have to face.

(BTW – if you mind the fact that I’m using the word shit so much, I am NOT the life coach for you. Just saying.)

Our lives are uniquely designed for us. Psychic Sylvia Browne believes that we choose our lives like some hippy-dippy syllabus in heaven before we come down to Earth. We choose our parents, our problems and our successes.

It’s all pre-destined. This is done so we can learn our lessons about what it’s like to be alive, to be fully human.

I know that might seem crazy, but I think there’s something to it. We all have issues to contend with and they are uniquely ours. We look at the world through our own unique perspective, our own lens. We all want to be better, but we can’t if we’re not willing to own up to and deal with our own shit.

Today, I am challenging you to look into the mirror and look at your life. Take a fucking, honest, long hard look at it. What is it that you want to achieve in this lifetime? What’s keeping you from it? The answer is simple. It’s the person staring back at you in that mirror.

Get out of your own way and start making life happen for you. Today. Stop delaying. No one has an infinite amount of time. None of us are getting out of her alive. Do more than survive. Thrive. Now!
