Sometimes, we overlook the existing situation in our lives because of the choice that we previously made. Consider this: you don’t weigh 15 pounds more by sitting down and eating one plate of food. It just doesn’t happen overnight. It is a process. Your relationship doesn’t fail due to one disagreement, right? You don’t rack up your debt by buying one dress. Your life as it is now is a series of events and as a result of the choices that you make daily.
You form habits based on what you choose to do from one moment to the next. Years add up and you find out soon enough that you are not happy with your life. Have you been there? You wonder what happened to you and you don’t see any end in sight – at least an end to your misery! You may be considering what your real purpose is in life and still not able to come up with an answer. You are not alone.
If you want to change all of this, you can reinvent your life and transform it into something that you want. There is going to come a moment (what is called an A-ah moment) that makes you awaken from your stupor, so to speak. You will finally figure out what you are doing wrong and make an attempt at fixing it.
Finding that A-ha Moment
Your ‘a-ha moment’ may come at a different time than someone else’s. It may suddenly hit you at the death of a loved one or looking in the mirror one morning and wondering who you really are and why you are wasting your life. No matter how it comes, it is what you gain from it will be the key to your solution.
These moments can be found anywhere, but you have to be paying attention in order to grasp them and more importantly, they could be far and in between. However, when they do happen, it is best to be aware of their real effect on your life. Some people experienced this moment a young age while others don’t until later on. If you aren’t fulfilling your passion or purpose just yet, you may not have had your a-ha moment yet. Sometimes, we even take these moments for granted and dismiss them as just a figment of the imagination or just a rush of emotions.
It is time for you to take a break from your busy life and look deeper at what these moments may mean to you. You don’t want to lose out on the opportunity to reinvent your life from the moment you have one of these experiences.
Are you at a place in your life where you don’t feel engaged or fully alive? It may be that you haven’t gotten onto the path of reinvention. Now it is time to start the journey of changing and shifting some things around in your life. Listen to your inner thoughts and take action when you get the cue that there is something missing. Embrace the challenge of change.
