Only you know how to live your best life

I have no idea what it will take for you to live your best life.

You are unique, you have come here via your own journey, you hold your own set of beliefs and ideas about the world, and you have your own personal mission of growth to accomplish.  I couldn't possibly begin to assume to understand the intricate and totally complicated web of your life, nor what you need for it to feel complete.  Nor should anyone else.  What will make you happy is not the same as the next person.  What your heart wants to learn in order to for you to evolve in this lifetime is all yours to know and understand.  There's no one specific healing balm for all of humanity (except maybe love of course...) - what soothes your soul will grate on someone else's, the search is not for the one nirvana, it's for your own version of it.

The secret to living your best life is in knowing what your version of it looks like

Living your best life is not about reaching a set of pre-defined ideals, nor is it about living by someone else's rulebook.  It's about writing your own.

No one can tell you what will make you happy.  Only you know that.  No one can tell you which path is the right one for you.  Only you know that.  No one can tell you what will make your heart come alive.  Only you know that.  And when you know these truths about yourself, you can live according to them, in alignment with them.  You can be your unique self, no need to excuse it.  Thi is your best life, no-one else's.

How you'll know when you're living your best life

Your life and work will be consistent with your values and natural talents

Your values are like your personal blueprint.  They define who you are, what you stand for.  They're like a set of your own personal guiding principles, and for life to feel good and happy you need to be living and working in alignment with these, not in conflict with them.  Understanding your values is the most important piece of the picture of what your own best life looks like.

You'll be living and working in a way that brings out the best in you

Do you care about your work?  Do you look forward to going in each day?  Do you feel inspired by what you're accomplishing, or the challenges you're meeting?  Do you feel energised and excited when you think about your work days ahead?  Does your work setting and the rhythm of your day feel right for you?  Work is a huge part of your life, and if you want to live your best one, your work and the environment in which you spend each day needs to inspire you and leave you feeling refreshed and looking forward to tomorrow.

You'll be actively progressing your dreams and heart's desires

Your best life is the one where you have no regrets at the end of it.  Define your dreams and start turning them into plans.  And if you're not sure what your dreams are, start by asking yourself the question: 'If money were no object, what would I be doing with my life?'.  I'm sure you've heard the question before, but have you ever taken the time to think about what your answer might be?  It may seem silly to daydream, but our daydreams show us our heart's desires - what we really want going on in our lives to feel content and happy.

Remember, there's no one definition of a best life, no one code to live by, or one set of rules.  Your best life is of your own design, on your own terms, and you can start living it now by knowing who you are, what you want and what makes you shine.

Go with love and carve your own path.
