No. 4 It’s your duty to live Big. Direct your own life story, ‘As You Love It!’

All the world’s a stage,

And all the men and women merely players,

They have their exits and their entrances,

And one man in his time plays many parts…” (As You Like It. William Shakespeare)

Life is fleeting. We have the opportunity every day to put our life centre stage and not leave it hanging about in the wings hoping for our moment.  Now is the time to take your cue to shine the light on your own life to direct your story.

The Wake-Up Call

My appreciation of having my life in my own hands to shape was not always so. But I can certainly remember the turning point of taking a stand to not sit by and let life happen to me.  It was a cold Sunday afternoon. I sat on one end of a bench and my Father on the other in the gardens of a cathedral watching my daughter playing. It was a rock bottom moment where reeling from a broken heart that had brought me to rock bottom, I had to dig so deep to draw so much strength at a time when I could barely pick myself up. My Father said to me, “We direct our own movie. We choose the players and write our own story through our choices.” On the surface, this wasn’t the comfort I was looking for in that particular moment! Now from a place of making the crossing, I appreciate the intention in his words and can see that the cold hard truth awoke at a deeper level, a spark of ignition to create a life story that I was proud to live and more significantly, show my daughter that we have the power within our hearts to be the masters of our destiny….to direct our course, to choose a life we love and to choose who we have around us to be a part of our story.

Saying Yes!

Now is the time to create your very own Big Life motion picture! It’s your duty to take a day out of your home and work environment to be in a place of tranquility where it is just, me, myself and I. This day is an opportunity to envision your own destination ‘Wealth, Success and Happiness.’ It’s time to shape your vision board of what you want your life to look like. Once you unearth your goals, your values, what gives you joy and where you want to be you’re saying a big YES to YOU. You’re setting the intention that you’re really serious about creating a life you love. And when you’re clear about the life you want you can start to make positive life choices that put that vision into manifestation motion.

Be Open and Ready to Receive

It was back in 2006 that I bought Rhonda Byrne’s ‘The Secret’ – a guide to the law of attraction to manifest an abundant life, e.g. money, relationships, health, etc. My awareness was there to a desire for a better life but I wasn’t in the right place to embrace a life that I felt was truly mine. However, life created the space for me to open up to new possibilities, admittedly through the shock of a stint in heartbreak hotel which forced me to take responsibility for my life. (That’s what it took to shake me out of my stubborn life rut!) And in July 2011, I drew out my vision board, which is still on my dressing table so I can be inspired every morning for the day ahead. Within 1 month I met the love of my life, within 7 months I registered my new business on Valentine’s Day 2012, within a year I left my job to devote my energy to Our Big Love Company and finally own my own worth and in November 2012 I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy. I feel like a whole loving new life cycle has opened up. Creating a life you love is possible, you just have to create the space to design it and open yourself up to the wonder of possibilities.

Action Stations

Go forth with courage. Schedule that day out for you to create your vision. You owe it to yourself, because once you send out the intention that you are ready to live your chosen life, then not only you, but others will collaborate in your happiness and benefit from that too.

Go play. It’s time to make your entrance.
