Everyone goes through a time (or two) in their life where they question everything they’ve come to know about themselves. In this holiday season, it’s especially easy to put aside your concerns and struggles and just put forward a happy face. But deep down inside, your heart doesn’t really care if it’s a holiday or not, it just knows it’s unhappy. So if you’re struggling with some less than desired feelings at this festive season of the year, I encourage you to stop fighting them. Instead, it’s better to address them and try to figure them out. Ignoring them will only make things worse as time goes on. So today I share with you four questions from Neale Donald Walsh in Conversations with God. He calls them the Four Fundamental Questions:
Who am I?
Where am I?
Why am I where I am?
What do I intend to do about that?
If you can find the answers to these questions deep inside yourself, I believe you’ll be closer to grasping that special holiday peace that everyone talks about. Living the answers to those questions will help you actually create that peace. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait any longer. I want to be able to enjoy the holidays with a true smile and light heart, not a forced smile and heavy heart.
One more thought, if the answers you discover deep inside you in answer to those questions scares you, don’t run. Big scary answers means that you’ve got a really awesome life ahead of you should you choose to act on those answers. Don’t give up and move on just because answers scare you, instead, find those who can support you and have their own scary path on which to walk.
What do you intend to do with your life this year?
