As you can see from the image, we are back in Barcelona, Spain.
Today, when I was looking for an image, this particular one spoke to me. The title came easily for this post –”Front seat”.
Today, I want you to take the front seat in what is called your life.
I would like you not only to take the front seat, but I would like to invite you to step into the driving seat of your life.
I would like you to take the steering wheel, put your hand on the 9 o’clock and three o’clock position, hold on and step on the brake pedal.
I want you to hit the brake, so that you take the time to breathe.
Take the time to breathe and contemplate the world around you, for this is the day you may see it all change.
If you have decided to tune in today, I invite you to make a change in your own life.
It does not have to be a big change; but I would invite you to change something that you have been putting off for some time, and today you are ready to do it. It could be that you do the washing up, instead of putting off to tomorrow. Iit may be that you change the sheets on your bed you forgot to change for the past few weeks. Maybe you take a shower for the first time in days.
The change is what you make of it, but do it with intention.
Being in the front seat of your life may feel strange.
Being in charge of the steering wheel of your life may feel even stranger, and it may feel out of place. Hitting the break in a time when it feels like we have been sliding along at a snail’s pace may feel counterintuitive, and yet, without taking a break, looking and facing our reality, we will never implement a change.
Despite the whole world having come to a grinding halt, there are those of you who continue to ignore your true selves.
You choose one of those monthly paid movie subscriptions; binge on news and ignore the here and now. And instead of living your life, you live that which is someone else’s, based on what others expect of you. Perhaps you react as you have always reacted and ignore the fact that what you have been getting in the past is what you continue to get today.
There is only one seat available for your life; and you need to be in it to win it.
Nobody can sit in that seat and try to steer you in a direction. You are the only one who can lead the ship to where it needs to be. Some people may think they can lead you, but unless you give away your choice and allow the ship to steer itself, no other human on the planet can make you do anything. The anger you felt yesterday, it was all you. The sadness you felt within, it is you. The happiness you crave for so much is within you, you just have to shift the view.
Instead of staring aimlessly in the distance, refocus your attention.
Instead of blaming the tool, the environment, the circumstances, take back control of the reaction and respond.
The seat is available; it is free; it is waiting for its master. All you have to do is sit down and drive.
Are you up to the challenge?
