I’m sure we all remember the beautiful song by Dido – Life For Rent? I was listening to it recently and I really paid attention to the words and wow she really blew me away. The knowledge in those words so is immense. ” If my life is for rent and I don’t learn to buy, while I deserve nothing more than I get, because nothing I have is truly mine.” She talks about her dreams to live by the sea and to travel the world which she knows she is more than capable of achieving, there isn’t anything to hold her back, but she doesn’t even know what happened to those dreams.
If your life was for rent, would you buy? Are you happy and fulfilled with the life you have? Have you taken ownership of your life and made it everything you want and need it to be? A lot of us will answer no, and that includes me. I know I struggle to take complete ownership of my own life and I know what is the big thing that holds me back – fear. That damn four letter word is the one thing that holds us back from making our life our own. We disguise this fear behind excuses and ‘rational’ thinking, but at the end of the day, they are just excuses and not actual reasons to hold ourselves back from the life we want to live. I think it’s time to take down that for sale and take hold of your life, because then everything you have is truly yours and no one can take it from you.
