I am sure if asked, many people would claim to live very full and active lives; And will be curious to know what is meant by the phrase ‘awaken your life’. To live a fulfilling life is more then just about going to work and raising a family. While both these things are important and satisfying, they are only a facet, a portion of what it means to live a life in which you are truly ‘awake’.
Finding fulfilment through providing for and meeting the needs of others; How well they do them and how they believe they are perceived by others, often means people define themselves through these roles. These are people who devote their whole lives to making other people happy, and do so selflessly out of love. However, it has to be said that sometimes this can be done to the detriment of their own personal happiness and emotional needs.
It is not being selfish or self obsessed to do things for your own pleasure or to enrich your life. I believe by making time for ourselves, it can only benefit those around us. For if we have found a way to replenish our own energies, through pursuits and interests that uplift and inspire us. We will then have more energy and enthusiasm left over for the other important things in our lives, that can and often do deplete us. This is your life. Many tend to forget this and surrender all that they are to the desires and whims of other people. Awakening your life is about listening to your own inner voice and following the yearnings of your own heart.
