Are you sure that you don’t already have what you’re looking for? Maybe you long to retire so you can finally spend some quality time with your kids. Maybe you long to make so-and-so fall in love with you so that your insides won’t be in such excruciating pain.
But you can’t expect someone else’s love to completely eradicate the need for self-love. What about inner work? Therapy? Rehab?
You also can’t expect to neglect your children physically and emotionally for 30 years then, poof, pick them up when society has deemed it acceptable to slow down. What about weekends? Evenings? Heart to hearts?
Aim to sit down and get real with yourself today. Am I sure I don’t already have what I’m looking for?
