Life sometimes gets to a point when you just want to refresh it. Much like on the computer when you just want to refresh the page. This happens in life too when you get bored and tired of the everyday same old same old and you begin question what this life is all about. You get up at 6 am to dress in tired old cloths that you hate, go to a job you hate and spend your day until 5 when you get back into the car you hate. Drive the same way home that you took this morning to a home life that is ether ok or the same and you build up hate there because you are just as tired of it as it the same thing you know you’re going to have one of the same four meals or take out of the same food that the restaurant to the point that a bank restaurant calls you for yours take out order.
You read book after book going to weekend classes on how to have a more fulling life, how to use the law of attraction and after trying it you go right back into the same old same old and wonder why it’s not working and why are you not setting on the beach enjoying the Cocktails with a bank account that naturally grows, what happened? Why does it work for some but not other?
Well I feel this happens a lot when people are not comfortable with pushing the refresh button. Yeah they will change somethings but not keep to it because you get people going what are you doing you are not in the box you belong, I don’t understand why you’re doing this,
This where you need to press the refresh button! Now! I’m serious before you get so lost in the repeat that before you know it your 60 and look back and say I could have been, I should have done, this.
First off you need to change the pattern! Get up at 5 instead of 6 and take that time for you.
Take a note pad, and write out what you do not like on one page about your life,
Then turn the page and list each item on a page, then take a page, a page each day.
After you write the item I want you to, REFRESH
Then write what you want to change I.E. the clothes in your closet then the next day wake up at 5 am and go throw out all that old tired stuff. Yeah it’s Saturday and you want to sleep in. Get out of that bed, walk over to the closet and begin pulling out the things you hate. It may be that shirt your mother got you for Christmas. It may be the dress that looks like a couch that your best friend brought you for your birthday; out it goes. If you do not love it out it goes to your favor charity. Then go and refresh your look; you do not need things filling up your life that do not make you happy or joyful or feel good to wear, so say good bye. Remember, that you probably don’t need one hundred outfits. You need twelve outfits that you can nix and match. So, next on refreshing the look, is to fill in what you need to make that happen. It may mean that may require some shopping but it does not to be name brands. A twenty four dollar shirt could make you feel the same as one that rolled out for four hundred dollars.
Then move to the next item; your job. Maybe you hate the work, so the next question is how do you change it. Maybe its how you work, like you hate the morning because you cannot get anything done. Fine go in earlier than the rest. Maybe it’s changing how you allow others to deal work your way. Yes you can change jobs (many are right now) but try changing the things you can refresh and make them yours. For example, I changed the text on email to purple, it works to bring much more joy to me. Yes this is a small, little thing but it has changed my view of things. What can you do to change things in your office? Maybe it means changing your cubicle as many now work in cubicle farms but that does not mean that you have to keep it looking like everyone else’s. Change it by hanging a picture that brings you closer to your goals and reminds you why you are there.
Slowly moving page after page you will begin to see that you are really finding that you have refreshed your life.
What if you hit the same wall when people start talking to you like the you are the “old you” and you need to refresh them and their ideas of you. This is often the major problem. When they point out that you have changed something but they don’t know what but what are you’ve done, it’s because you’re not playing the role in their life script they had for you. That when you need to refresh them. If they don’t bring you joy, then release them. And refresh them to also to embrace you.
