You know the old question, what would you do with your life if money wasn’t and issue?
You know how most of us say, “Oh I would quite my job and buy a boat and sail around the world”. Actually, I don’t know anyone who has said that to me. Maybe my husband has. My husband loves boats. Ask him, he’ll tell you! Hmmm.
Yesterday my friend and I took a car trip to a beautiful spot in Northern NSW, to a place that always seems to recharge, inspire and invigorate me.
On the way home, while we were both trying to stay awake (hello sneaky vino at lunch), we played the “what would you do if money wasn’t and issue.
The temptation is to think of all the things you would do with the money. Like pay off the house, or move house, or build a house, or go on a holiday or buy a flash car or..you know, all the material stuff.
But this isn’t the question.
The real question is:
What would YOU DO WITH YOUR LIFE if money wasn’t an issue?
As we played with this question, I notices many things, but as I digested it later, I noticed that really, the things that we would do are actually really simple. Humble and yet so meaningful. Gentle even.
We broke it down into a week.
So what would the week look like?
For me, each day or at least one day would involve some creative expression.
Writing inspiring content.
Speaking about shit I am passionate about.
Dancing by myself and with others.
Each day or at least one day, would have some connection opportunity. Volunteering. Teaching. Meeting in groups to share our passions and creative expressions.
Music. I’d listen to music. I’d gift people music.
Each day would have some family time. But play time. Not serious homework stuff. Where all of are expressing our own unique gifts. Individually and collectively. We might even have Mrs Doubtfire come hang with us so that hubby and I can do some of that stuff together as well. Just us.
And everyday, I would learn something. Something inspiring. New. A new perspective. A new skill. A new way.
I’d be of service to humans who want to love their lives. And maybe to those who don’t even know that that they don’t love their lives.
I’d help folks who struggle with themselves.
I’d listen to folks. Deeply listen. And challenge the parts of themselves that aren’t open to love.
THIS is just SOME of the stuff that I would do if I didn’t have to worry about money. EVER.
Ironically, when I review the list, I see that well, for the most part, that is my life already.
So it is today, with gratitude I say, WHAT AN AWESOME life.
It is today I am grateful to the support of my husband.
It is today I feel ready to take another step up. Another step to use my life to create stuff.
Stuff that no body may care about. Just stuff that matters to me!
Anyone ready to step up with me?
As always, I love to hear from you. Where you are. What you are up to. What you are creating! hearing form you matters to me!
Big, big love
