What’s needed for a new relationship with time and life?
Intention — Get really clear about what you want.
Desire — How much do you want something new for yourself? Know your motivation. Desire brings the energy for change.
Belief and/or willingness to trust you can have
what you want. If belief is lacking, can you believe in the possibility
that you can find a new way of living?
Perseverance, discipline — It takes time and effort to change attitudes and habits. We can’t expect a new life overnight.
Acceptance, both of what’s happening now and of
who we are. Until we honestly and openly accept our present situation,
we cannot change it.
A willingness to try something new.
“It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our
hours, our minutes. … It is so easy to exist instead of live. Unless
you know there is a clock ticking. So many of us changed our lives when
we heard a biological clock and decided to have kids. But that sound is
a murmur compared to the tolling of mortality.”
