WHO’S REALLY ASKING FOR THE LIFE YOU SAY YOU WANT


“Be careful what you ask for,” they say.

I never did understand that.

Be careful WHY?
Because you just might get it?
Isn’t that the whole point?
To get the things we ask for?

It may be subtle, but the fear-based message is still there. The msg that you can’t really trust yourself to even ask for the right things in life.

Maybe the updated wisdom parents can teach their kids is to question WHO is doing the asking.
Like seriously, the words might be coming out of YOUR mouth, but who’s really asking for that job?

That house?

That relationship with that ONE specific person?

Who’s really asking for the life you say you want (or are actually living)? Is it your parents?
Is it society?
Your husband?
Your wife?
Your ego?

Because if it isn’t truly you, if it’s not coming from the depths of your Soul, then even if you do achieve the so-called dream, it will be someone’s else’s life . . .

Someone else’s dream.
