Day 68 – Choose a Good Life

November 13, 2011

I got up early this morning, did some yoga, said my prayers, talked to family. I Love them.

I decided to keep it moving, in a different way. I’m not going to try and force Dream Lover out of my heart. It’s funny the way getting over people works. Trying to get over someone and force them out of my heart has never really worked for me. What has always worked is that one day I wake up in the morning and I realize that I didn’t think of my lost love the day before. I am able to see the relationship clearly, and after some evaluation, I come to see that the relationship is no longer the space for me.

So, I’m going out of the country. Final answer. I’m going to work really hard in the next couple of weeks so that I can finance myself during and after the trip. I’m going to find some work to do over seas that will move me towards establishing my international lifestyle. I’m also going to go full force with submitting for agents and production companies, so hopefully I will be overseas somewhere, check my voicemail or email, and find that when I come back to the States I will be finally working as a writer.

I’m in Love today. Not with Dream Lover, but with life. I’m deciding not to be sad about him, and not to be mad about him, just to let him go. This is it. There is a choice. I have a choice. I can choose to live a good life. The choice has to be made, otherwise you will be influenced by all of the lives of the many people around you. Many people have not made that choice. They have chosen subconsciously to have a life full of drama or, in the words of M. Beckwith, they have decided that life is hard and then you die.

Here’s the thing. Once you make a choice about something and you stick to it, other people have to get with your program or keep moving. Some things you can compromise with and sometimes people are willing to modify their behavior so that they can be around you. I work in the education system, and I am always amazed at how you can go into one teacher’s classroom and see several students just acting wild and crazy, and then you see those same students with another teacher and they are well behaved. It has nothing to do with the students. It has everything to do with the teachers and the standards they have set.

One teacher decides that certain behavior is unacceptable and she creates systems to reinforce her expectations. Another teacher either never makes a decision about what she is going to accept or she doesn’t follow through with actions.

So, I’m choosing a good life. Period. No exceptions, not even for Dream Lover. I’ve got some of it together already, but a good life also includes healthy relationships with people that I bring close to me. Healthy relationships have a foundation of integrity and good-will and are nurtured by honest communication. That is what I am creating. I am choosing financial freedom, which is achieved by making daily efforts to use my skills, knowledge and talent to find ways to increase my passive income… I can do this. We can do this.

We don’t have to keep doing the same things over and over and over again. We don’t have to remain stuck in a place. If someone leaves your life, you won’t die, I promise. If you change your job or lose it, you won’t starve. Very few people ever die of hunger. If you choose a good life even in the midst of despair and hopelessness, if you open yourself to the idea that there is a way where there seems to be no way, then the Universe responds to your intention.

Yeah, I can have a good life. I am actually having it. I choose a good life. I choose a good life. I choose a good life.

Thank you God. Ameen.
