We all do this… we paint a picture of how we think our lives should be, what it should look like, who is in it and how they look and behave. Think about that image you have painted and ask yourself where does that come from. How much of what is in that picture is you and how much of it comes from other sources like environment, family, friends, media even. Be careful not to push away people because they don’t match the painting in your head… don’t pull away from opportunities because they aren’t in your painting. Stop looking at that painting and start living.
