7 Ways To Start Transforming Your Life Right Now…

In the last 3 years since I was in a severe automobile accident my focus has been on my healing journey. My first intention was to get my body back to where it was before the accident. Many of the changes have made my life better than it was before the accident. I have transformed my body, my health, my life and the lives of those around me.

I once was told that I was a baby chick in an egg, pecking away at the shell from the inside about to hatch. Recently some one said that I was a beautiful flower bud about to burst open into full bloom. I have an image of myself as going from a caterpillar to a chrysalis. Soon I will emerge from my cocoon as a beautiful butterfly.

I am on a journey of transformation and I invite you to come along with me. You can take baby steps or giant leaps. You can change one small thing or many big things. All you need to do is pick a place to start from the list below and once you put it into practice you have begun your transformation. Take as many or as few steps as needed.

1. Put Yourself First:
Most of us aren’t even on our to-do list, let alone first. This may seem difficult or selfish, but when you show up for yourself first, you show up better for others. Think of yourself as a pitcher of water. You fill the glasses of those you love. If you do not take care of yourself first, your pitcher gets low or empty and you will not have anything to give. If you take care of yourself first, your pitcher will be overflowing. You can then give from a place of abundance instead of sacrifice.

2. Live Every Day Like It Is Your Last:
There is no telling when your time on this planet will end. It is extremely important to live the best life you can. Do not leave anything undone or unsaid. Make sure those you love know it. If there are things that you have always wanted to do, start doing them. Make a bucket list and get started on it today!

3. Allow The Universe To Guide You:
It is easy to plan your life out and try to control your path and the outcome. If you surrender yourself to the Universe you will find that things will come to you in expected and unexpected ways with little effort on your part. The Universe has a plan for you, it my not be exactly like your plan. It may not be the same path as you thought you would take, but the results will most likely be better than you expected.

4. Start Living As If:
Picture your life how you want it to be in the future with as much detail as possible. Visualize it as if you are there. Feel the emotions. Feel the sunshine. Smell the air. Taste the food. Go back to this visualization often and add details. Feel it as if you are already there. Write down a few things you can begin doing now and start doing them.

In my future life I have financial freedom and time freedom. My business is portable and I travel with my husband and enjoy every moment of our lives together. An example of me “living as if” is taking a weekend and going away with my husband. We are having a great time and decide to stay for a couple more days. I take care of work from the road and just maybe some doesn’t get done at all. Maybe no one will notice. If you did notice I did not post my blog two weeks ago, please know that I was busy “living as if”.

5. Choose Positive Results:
The only person you can change is you. You can choose to react in a negative way to things in your life or a positive way. If you choose positive reactions you will attract positive results toward you. If there is something in your life that is not bringing you joy, release it or find a positive way to react to it.

I could have chosen to be a victim of my car accident and wallow in my pain and misfortune. I chose to heal, grow and transform my life. I use that experience to help others heal and Be Healthy. This is my passion.

6. Fill Your Life With Joy:
What most of us are missing in our lives is joy. You set the mood in your home. If you are filled with joy, your home and family will be filled with joy. One of my favorite sayings is “If momma ain’t happy, no one’s happy.” Make a list of things that bring you joy. List things you love to do, things you used to love to do, things you have always wanted to try. Walk the dog, send yourself flowers, read a book, take a bubble bath, dance around your house in your underwear or take yourself to a movie. Find joy, drink it up and then find some more.

7. Slow Down, Be Mindful & Be Present:
Life is meant to be sipped and savored, not guzzled. I have spent the better part of my life rushing through it with no awareness of what is happening around me or to me. If you rush through your life you will have missed everything that was important in it. Practice being mindful and present to things that you are doing. This can apply to all areas of your life. Notice that I said practice, this one takes practice. Focus your attention and your senses on the task at hand. Stop multitasking and rushing through your life. I now know that the joy is in the journey not in reaching the destination.

  1. Hi Heather!

    Thanks for sharing what you’ve learned in your journey of transformation. My favorite tips was “living as if.” I’ve had many consecutive days where I was rushing, plotting, planning and stressing –– only to “wake-up” and ask myself, “Why am I doing this?” I’m doing it to give myself a future that includes more freedom. The irony is I have freedom right now. I can choose to leave my computer behind for the afternoon and bliss out in the park without guilt. We always have access to freedom because it truly is a state of mind.

    xx,

    • Ashley, thank you so much for your comments. “Living as if” has been something that I have been adopting fully lately and loving it. Before that I was spending to much time trying to foce things and working waaay to hard. I stopped and decided that if I wanted a life with time freedom, I should start “living as if” right now. Truthfully the only person putting all this pressure on me to work so hard is me. So I made the change and I don’t have any guilt either. I chose to have time now. Isn’t it great! 😉

    Heather – ha! I love that you were “living as if” a few weeks ago. I’ve been taking more time to read in the evening instead of jump back on my computer. A much more relaxing way to spend the evening than checking one more thing off the ever ending to do list.

  3. These are such great tips to living on purpose and being an active participant in life and in the journey. It can be so hard not to want to dictate everything – but I’ve learned as you have that the Universe often has other plans. And, often the harder we push in the “wrong” direction, the harder it gets. It doesn’t mean that I don’t push – in fact, I’ve been doing quite a bit of that lately. Hmmm…maybe your post is my message from the Universe today!

    • Jennifer, I love your comments. Sometimes even if we know things to be true, it is still difficult to practice them. This is a message from the Universe to stop pushing! Amazing things are coming your way. 😉
