That’s the question I asked on Facebook last week and I have to tell you some of the answers sat me back on my arse with a thump!!
I know the changes that our family has experienced these past couple of years. I know how different we feel and how our lives will never be the same again.
For us it took losing over 50kg, selling most of our stuff, quitting our jobs and setting off across the world. Those are big, big life changes.
Since I’m currently writing a programme to help others have a life changing year these are things I’ve had to think about. I admit that I assumed things that change your life must be big, huge, radical changes.
I was wrong!
And guilty of assuming.
The answers on facebook were really varied:
Sell the house and travel
Get some more cats!
Visit Gert (well derrrr!!)
Have a baby!
Find one truly great friend
That last one has stuck with me for the past couple of days. I’ve turned it over and over in my brain. And felt a bit awful for thinking only of the fun stuff such as travel.
Imagine if knowing you had one truly great friend was enough to change your life?
I think we take our friends for granted but imagine for a minute if we didn’t have them! Imagine if there was no one to confide in, bitch to, laugh and cry with, grab a bite to eat with, have a beer with?
Someone to tell you your bum looks big in those jeans or that you were being a dick?
So, I’ll be continuing to take on board all of the ideas people have to have their own Life Changing Year. I’ll be using them to create a great programme that will help others put their dreams into action. And I’m so pleased I get to have feedback from all of you in the process!!
Now its your turn blog readers!!
I’d like everyone to leave a note in the comments below (yes – even you shy ones who’ve never commented before!) Let me know:
