“It's not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What's hard is figuring out what you're willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.”  Shauna Niequist  

If I were to guess, I would guess that you have felt like you have made sacrifices in your life.

One time you gave something up because your brother or sisters were awarded their perfect choice.

Another time you gave up your choice because it was important for the family to have something else.

As you moved into your adult relationships you seemed to give up more and more but it came with more ease.

You actually lost your voice around saying what you wanted.

All you had to do you told yourself was accept what was happening and someday you would get what you wanted.

Hopefully you won’t wait until you are too old to care to get what you want.

 It takes a huge amount of energy and probably costs you some of your health to keep putting aside the choices you want for your life.

Make a choice.

You create a new direction.

Choose a new direction you create a new destination.

Choose the new destination and you have a new life.

This is who you are.
