I know this isn’t news to you (and probably cliche AF) but life is short. I’m all for setting goals and chasing down dreams but sometimes that takes a really long freaking time. What’s a badass babe to do while you’re hustling your way to the life of your dreams? Here are my tips to live your dream life now. You don’t need to wait for all your dreams to come true to start feeling like a badass boss babe who is happy as heck and has it all going on.
I first learned about upleveling from Kathrin Zenkina and I’ve become obsessed with it. If you were living your dream life how would it be different? Would you only drink the best organic coffee? Would your nails always be painted? Think about what would be different in your life and then find ways to start incorporating those things into your life RIGHT NOW. Start buying yourself the fancy coffee or giving yourself at home manicures. If you have a fabulous walk-in closet in your dream life organize and upgrade the closet you already have. Buy a new shoe rack and organize your clothes by color. Start getting yourself some hangers that make you feel fancy as fuck. Throw away all your holey underwear (just me?). Start finding ways to live your life more like the successful badass you are going to be in the future.
Spend sometime fantasizing about your biggest dreams and goals coming true. See if you can actually feel what this would feel like. Envision yourself hearing your single on the radio or telling your Mom you’re on the New York Times Bestseller list. This is your fantasy life, don’t play small. Let yourself feel the joy and excitement of reaching these key achievements. Practice doing this until you can call the feelings into your body whenever you want. You might not be able to get a Grammy right now but you can practice having the FEELING of getting a grammy which is still pretty damn great.
Act As If
Start walking around with the energy of someone who is already living your dream life and accomplished what you want to accomplish. If you start acting as if you’re already the successful badass babe of your dreams you’ll start to feel that way more often. When you think of yourself as a successful badass who is totally killing it other people will start to treat you that way too. When you need to make a decision make it as if you’re the most successful and epic version of yourself. Stop playing small and tell your fears to kick rocks. Practice making decisions and feeling like your success story has already come true.
Use Your Best Stuff
Stop saving your special perfume and candles for a special occasion. Use them to celebrate yourself every damn day. In your dream life, I seriously doubt you’re hoarding your nice things for a “special time”. Crack open that fancy bottle of wine and let the expensive lotion you have from Sephora flow like water. This is your time, stop waiting and go ahead and live your best damn life right now. Use your special china and good wine glasses just because it’s Tuesday and you’re freaking fabulous.
You are here to be successful and fabulous. Even if you’re struggling right now it can all turn around in an instance. Today might suck but tomorrow could be the best day of your whole damn life. Noone knows the future and that means the possibilities of good shit that could happen to you are absolutely endless so get freaking stoked. Celebrate every damn day like you’re going to meet your soulmate and win the lottery at any moment. If you’re new to my blog please be sure to check out my posts about depression and anxiety.
