So here you are….another day…you get up, you go to work, you do the same thing you did  yesterday in hopes that all the dreams you have will magically fall into your lap…you imagine what life would be if you won the lottery, found true love, or if you didn’t do that thing you did 5 years ago ( which you are still blaming for your life today) …

Wake up people! nothing is going to change if you keep repeating the same things over and over…whats the definition of insanity? ~ doing the same thing and expecting a different result…

I am guilty of it, I have big expectations, not just in life, but also in people and time and time again they disappoint or I do not have the desired outcome I had hoped for…why… because I am doing the same things, looking for answers in the same places, fighting the same fight day after day…living within the same argument with myself…do I let go…do I hold on…do I try it one more time…do I live it one more day…

But there is always one more day…there is always one more corner…if we don’t make the conscious decisions to make the changes need then get comfy in the wheel…continue running miles and miles and go nowhere except to stop to eat, drink and then get back on the wheel…

Change is hard, change is scary… but can also be the most exciting thing a person can do, use fear as a way to prove to you that you are alive…just don’t let it cripple you and prevent it from following your heart and your dreams…

Get off the Wheel! Or stay on it…but only you can make that decision,      

 I for one am tired of running…
