Imagine being on your deathbed, having an inch of life left in this world and coming to the sudden nauseating realisation that you had lived your life not for yourself but for everyone else but yourself.
All that matters, all that is essential in this life is:
- Worshiping God sincerely
- Making the people that raised you feel respected, honoured, happy and proud
- Making your inner child joyful
These are the three things that matter most in this life- in that order.
Looking at number three specifically, whenever you have that niggling thought: “what would people think” use your inner child as your litmus test. The one question to ask is “will this or will this not make my inner child happy?”. If yes and it does not compromise the first two points on the list I outlined… do it. If no… do not do it.
You must absolutely live for your inner child. Is he or she happy? Is he or she proud of you are and who you have become? Are you feeding him or her the carefree joy that they are craving?
Forget the people. Heal your child. Live to meet the needs of your child and not the expectations of people. This life is a stage and sooner or later the sun will set on this act. Your act.
What an unfortunate way to go… not having done what truly made your inner child joyful.
These are just some thought that I’ve been reflecting on. If you take anything away from this stop waiting to live and start living NOW. You always wanted to study fine art to feed your inner child’s curiosity? Do it. Always wanted to be outdoorsy or relocate to a coastal city or grow a garden or connect with that person you find fascinating? Do it.
This is your life. The only actors in this play are you and your inner child. You are the person that pays the bills and takes on responsibility. Your inner child is the one itching to live.
Please do not live like a shadow and please take up space. There is absolutely nothing to fear. The people do not live in your world, they are not actors in this play. Only you and your inner child are…
Be the architect of your life and make room for those two actors to thrive in harmony. The play is yours and yours alone. Your world is yours and yours alone and only you have the power to build it. No one else should matter…
Think of yourself as the only person on this planet and start living like no one is looking🌱.
Peace and blessings,
