If You’re Not In Love With Your Life, Change It

woman with hat

If you’re not in love with your life, change it.

If ever you should wake up, and find yourself on the wrong path, get off. If you’re in a relationship with someone who keeps hurting your heart, leave. If you hate your job that damn much and can’t stop telling everyone so, quit. If you live in a town that has gotten too small, find someplace new to explore. If the woman you are today falls short of who that little girl imagined you’d be, start making her proud. If you find yourself unsure of the person starring back at you in the mirror, it’s time to start soul searching. If you feel like you’re living your life on somebody else’s terms, stop. Stop now. Before you become too bitter, and too jaded; before you lose all hope in this world, and all faith in yourself.

If you’re not in love with your life, change it.

If the world has become a scary place to you, it’s time to rise up and face your fears. If the reality of being a grown-up has begun to weigh heavily on your shoulders, stand up and become stronger. If everyone you know and love has turned their back on you, please, try your best not to fall apart. If the one you love breaks your heart, remember you will mend in time. When you feel your soul slipping away, hold on and don’t let go. And if you’re struggling to find a reason to keep going, whatever you do, don’t stop looking until you find one.

If you’re not in love with your life, change it.

Stop spending your precious time and energy on things that bring you no joy. Start doing more of what makes you happy. Those passions and people and past-times that make you come alive. Maybe you haven’t found what that is yet? And that’s okay. But spend time trying new things so you move closer each day to discovering your soul’s work. Never accept the hand you’ve been dealt, and don’t just wait around for life to happen to you, or pass you by. Wake up and realise you are responsible for your own happiness. Don’t depend on anyone else for that. Start owning it. Find something that makes you want to leap out of that cosy bed before the sun even blinks in the morning.

If you’re not in love with your life, promise me you’ll do whatever it takes to fall in love with it again.

Because this life really is beautiful, if only you give it the chance to be. If only you realise what you give, will come back to you in abundance. If only you realise that in order to find and experience true love, you must discover it within your heart first.

Take control of your life.

Live it; live it extraordinarily well.

And be sure to fall head over heels in love with it.

After all, it’s never too late to become the person you hope to be.

Praise for Bloom

Amazing book! I have read it twice, I go back and highlight quotes and things I need to remember throughout the day. Shani has inspired me, and will inspire many women. It's the law of attraction worded a little differently for women to love. - Samantha
