I don’t like the idea that I’m not in control of my life. ~ Neo
In life we’re the controller of our destiny; regardless of your feelings on fate.
Each one of us decides to wake up, go to work or school and go through our day, oblivious to what goes on around us.
Last week I talked about the time we have left, the minutes ticking away our lives.
It’s what we’re doing with the minutes we have left that matter. The used minutes are like hanging up the phone, you just talked to the person, but there’s no longer the conversation, it’s just dead air.
Your used minutes are like the phone call, used minutes. They’re in the past, they don’t matter.
The minutes you have left are the future phone calls or text message you have yet to send.
The idea of fate tells us that what we’re doing is meant to be, but if you believe that why are there so many people not doing what they’re capable of?
The fear that fate is real stops people from doing other things. It stops the potential of so many artists because they think, “I’m living the life I should be.”
But what if you do as Neo does, jump down the rabbit hole and see where it goes?
Your motivation should be doing what you want, not what you believe fate has thrown at you. Fate is the same thing as fear.
IF you believe you’re living the life you should be, then you’ve found your calling, but if there’s that slightest bit of hesitation that you could live better, do something meaningful, then you should tumble down the rabbit hole.
The hesitation in your thoughts marks a change in what you believe you should be doing. It is that little voice saying, “No, you’ve tried this, and it’s not working.”
That voice is one you should listen to; it’s your creative side trying to get out.
It’s the same voice my 9 year old hears when he makes something new with his Legos or my 4 year when she creates a new story for her toys.
It just takes some tapping into before we know it’s there.
