You’ve probably been wondering why I’ve been missing in action for some time now; however you can finally put your curiosity to rest! You see I’ve taken the time to make some personal changes so that I can show up as my best, and better serve the people in my tribe! Not only do I have a fresh new website (previous site is formerly known as Blissed Out Belle), I’m making some major moves in my life as well. These new developments have added more pep in my step & more fuel to my flame!
Now as a part of my reinvention process I knew a move for me was inevitable, and I’m not referring to moving to another neighborhood; I’m talking about moving to another city. As a matter of fact, I’m going bicoastal baby! It’s freakin’ scary, fun, and liberating at the same time!
Anyhow, once I became clear that a move was on the horizon I started to share it with a few people and some were supportive, others indifferent. Overall the general vibe was why; but Why Not !?
Frequently I find that the conventional attitude is that “if it’s not broken don’t fix it”, but why must we wait for things to become miserable or for sh*t to hit the fan? You don’t have to go through a breakup, major loss, or pain in order to realize you want to reinvent your life, because anytime is the best time.
Even with looming fears and uncertainty about a move, I felt that I needed no long explanation or valid reason as to why I wanted to make radical shifts in my life, and neither do you!
So if you‘ve been waiting for a sign, this is it! And if you’re still on the fence, here are 3 reasons why you may want to reinvent just for the Heck of It!
1. Damn it, you DESERVE better!
There’s nothing more powerful then taking action to improve your life just because you want to, as opposed to being forced to by painful circumstances. I believe that when you feel called to enhance or elevate your life it’s your best bet to listen to your heart. In my case I feel called to relocate to another city, without a valid reason, logical explanation, or the need to seek approval on it.
“Reinvent for what !?”, you might ask because everything appears to be going okay. Regardless of the fact, I think this quote beautifully sums it up best …
“A successful reinvention doesn’t happen when you hate the person you are or your circumstances, it happens when you love yourself enough to believe that you can do better and deserve better.”
2. Your growth and expansion depends on it.
Reinvention means to courage up, bust down the walls of comfort, and chart your own course. At the end of the day, we all want a sense of growth and progress in our lives; just like Tony Robbins says change is guaranteed, but growth is optional. In order to experience the type of growth and expansion most of us long for we have to be willing break free from the mold, and dare to do what we’ve never done before.
Despite this, most of us will rationalize our status quo existence by saying, “Things are not that bad”, or convince ourselves that we’re happy with the way things are. Well, Screw your Coping Tactics! To ensure you have the type of growth and expansion that you desire it’s necessary that you to take matters into your own hands, by becoming the change you wish to see in your life and designing the lifestyle that you’ve been craving. Although, I’m not going to sit here and say it’s easy, but trust me taking action pays tenfold.
3. You’re able to create life on your terms NOW, as opposed to someday!
Calling the shots; now that’s the best part of it all! The beauty of reinvention is that you get to take personal inventory of your life and get to the heart of what’s working and what’s not working in it, and deliberately create it exactly how you want. Now, I’m not advocating that you do anything radical like relocate, or quit your job… unless that is what you want to do. However, it’s about placing your values, purpose, and passions at the forefront and designing your life based around that.
By making today the start of your reinvention journey you are setting the wheels in motion to ensure that your life is constantly evolving for the better. Whichever area in your life you feel called to transform, you need no elaborate reason, or special moment in time that would be perfect to make these BIG changes. As you know life is too short and unpredictable not to live it exactly as you please; so I challenge you to quit waiting for a green light or permission to do so!
