Your Future Self Will Thank You

A place for support, intelligence, resources and recovery

“ The best way to predict the future is to create it”  - Abraham Lincoln

Where were you ten years ago? Think about May 2017? It doesn't seem like so long ago. Well it wasn't! And ten years from now isn’t as far away as we’d like to all think it is.

Have you learned anything?? How about you’ll regret more of the things you didn’t do than the things that you did do. It’s all of the relationships we wanted to have, but were too afraid of chasing, it’s the opportunities we missed out on because we held back. The trip we didn’t take because we didn’t have time. 

Don’t look back on life ten years from now wishing you had done things differently. Do something today your future self will thank you for.  

Hint: you have to do this yourself!

Why don’t you let you just be you?

It’s fun to do the things that your friends and family members like to do, but it’s important to also to do the things that you love. Do you love the movies? Hiking, biking, bluegrass music? The first step is figuring out exactly what it is that you love and do those things. What do you like to talk about, what makes you excited? BE YOU! Don’t be defined by the things other people like to do.

Waking up each day with purpose.

Waiting for life to happen to you is no way to live...and nothing really meaningful is likely to happen.  Recognize that the world does not owe you anything and start achieving for yourself. You can make the world better by being the best you can be! When you are enthusiastic and fulfilled you are an inspiration to others. Have a plan and go in the direction of your plan.  Follow through with your commitments to yourself. 

Take responsibility for where you’re at in life and strive to be better. Help others by setting this example.

Putting down the smartphone and living presently.

Have you ever gone somewhere and not remembered how you got there or whether or not you enjoyed yourself. Living presently is more simple than we think it is, but it’s easy to go off track. Focus on your life as it is happening right now, this moment, and appreciate it for what it is. These are the good old days!

Working less to spend more time with the ones you love

Time is our most valuable asset, it is more valuable than gold! Working hard is never undervalued. There’s a lot to be said about making time for your loved ones, enjoy precious invaluable time with the important people in your life. No amount of money will every buy moments you’ve missed with the ones you love.

Saying goodbye to toxic people

Having toxic people in your life is draining, both physically and emotionally. You don’t have to keep anyone in your life that doesn’t respect you, so never be afraid to cut toxic people out of it. The best way to gain respect from others is by first respecting yourself.  

Nobody said it would be easy, but it will be worth it!!
