Have you ever asked yourself, “What am I doing with my life?” The Grasshopper offered this answer to the question: “Whatever you’re doing now is what you’re doing with your life.“
The real question is: What are you doing with the energy of your life?
Your energy is only present right now. It’s not in the past or in the future; it’s only here now. So whatever you’re doing with your energy right now is what you’re doing with your life.
Are you fretting now? Then that’s what you’re doing with your life. Are you working towards a goal right now? Then that’s what you’re doing with your life.
The question can be accurately answered in each moment by noticing what you’re doing in that moment.
“I’m not spending enough time with my kids or on my job or hobby or with my spouse or lover” are declarations about not living the life you want. Rather than listing what you’re not doing with your life, start now by doing any of those things; then you’ll be able to confidently declare: “I’m doing what I want with my life.”
Life only happens now. Please read that sentence again. Whatever you are doing now is what you’re doing with your life.
Start using the energy of now to do what you want rather than wasting your energy citing what you don’t want. You already know what you don’t want. Reminding yourself over and over is as silly as saying your name repeatedly to yourself so you won’t forget it.
The energy of now can be used in any fashion you choose. Channel your life’s energy towards doing what you want to do and do it now!
You don’t have to climb a mountain in a day. Use the energy of now to step in the direction of the climb. Then you can answer the age old question with “I’m stepping in the direction of doing what I want now.”
You have to step out of your head to take the first step. So stop philosophizing about the why and wherefore of what isn’t happening and start noticing what is. Then you’ll have a handle on what you’re doing with your life and if it needs adjustment, use the energy of now to take the first step in that direction.
Life only happens now. So here’s a new question: What are you doing with the energy of now?
All the best,
