Get a Life!!
I don’t have a life.
That was pretty much my mantra in the late 90’s. I was teaching first grade full time and pursing my Master’s Degree part time in the evenings. That went on for 2 years with no quarters off.
It’s phrase I hear, and nowadays see, all the time.
“I don’t have a life,” from amazing women. Doing amazing things.
Women raising children. Women pursing their Master’s Degrees or even PH D’s. Women training for marathons and triathlons and 100-mile relay races. Women with full time jobs doing yoga teacher trainings. Women moving their families across the country. Women running their own, unique business.
One of the greatest lessons yoga offers is that it teaches us to see things from a different perspective.
From an outsider’s point of view, your idea of “I don’t have a life” is their idea of a dream life.
There are women who wish they could raise children. There are women envious that you know what subject you want to study and pursue a career in. There are women wishing they had the time/money/energy/health to train for huge races or become yoga teachers. There are women too afraid to start their own businesses.
You ARE living life. Your life IS amazing. Abundant. Interesting. These things you’re doing that make you say “I don’t have a life”? You’ll look back on and say, “Wow! What a cool life I had.”
If you think you don’t have a life, I give you permission to realize now that you DO have a life. You have a cool, interesting, amazing, desirable life.
Keep on livin' it, sister!
