A Difficult Question, Yet an Important One

You aren’t you, are you? You’re just a few ripples of you. You’re a performer of stuff. Performing without thinking.

What if?

What if you could reset you? What if you were given the opportunity to step off the treadmill of  life for a year?

How would you spend your time and redefine your hours and days?

If you were provided with food, shelter and clothing and did not have a care in the world, how would you show up to life each morning?

Who would you call? Where would you go? What would you create?

I’d love to know.  Please share your thoughts below in the comment box.



  1. This is a beautiful question. I love my life, I am enjoying my days and nights so much I would not change a thing! I eat what ever I desire, as much as I desire and have the body I desire. I have my cute children that I adore unconditionally and a job I absolutely love! My days would be as they are now, filled with things I love to do. ♡


      1. I have been through a lot of difficulties (sexual abuse, physical abuse, eating disorders, been bullied, alcoholic parent, death of my parents and more) in my life – I even tried to kill myself once. But, when I was 24 I decided to improve my thinking and as a result my entire life improved! I have written a book about what I did, with the intention to inspire and empower other people who also have been through difficulties.

      2. Thank you for your appreciation! It had been such an empowering journey – and I did it on my own. If I can do it, anyone can do it. I feel blessed for everything I have ever been through because it all led me to finally finding my own empowerment. ♡

      1. I have spent a few years working on self-healing and trying to find myself, using energy healing (Reiki & Theta) and lots of meditation. It paid off :). My advice would be to be self-disciplined and patient. All take time but the results are definitely worth the effort!

  2. Great question. I do not think that I would reset my life. Although at times it would sound like a wonderful thing to do. But I feel like at this point in my life every bad decision and even the good ones have molded me into the person I am today. Stepping off the treadmill of life sounds relaxing but even then I feel like if we take that year off we are actually losing out on lessons and blessings.

    I like your blog and will continue to follow it. Leoinspirations.com

  3. I am working toward achieving this goal daily. I no longer look to others for validation, yet I welcome others’ feedback. My interests and hobbies now reflect what I truly want to do with my life and with my free time. I have cut off toxic relationships and now only surround myself with positive, uplifting people who are also interested in self-improvement. Shallow relationships no longer hold stock in my life; quality over quantity is how I roll these days.

    I’m also in a position now in which I am able to explore interests, make friends, and work toward my goals. As an expatriate dependent, I get to travel, explore new places, and write to my heart’s content. It is an interesting, fantastic, charmed life, and I aim to take full advantage of the opportunity.

    1. You are inspiring me Ashley. I know it is not easy to disconnect from toxic relationships as I have done the same. I have been wondering lately about whether some of the relationships are put in our path to try to help heal. I don’t know. I do know that observing and learning more and more about ourselves is a smart approach to becoming the best versions of ourselves that we can be.


  4. Great question! I actually kinda did this last year. I lost my job in January from a career of 10yrs and decided to take my time deciding what to do next. Luckily I had a severance package which would last a few months. At first I was completely lost and got depressed – being able to do whatever you want during the day is not as easy as it sounds! I found myself doing more and more art and eventually, as a bit of a fluke, ended up applying to do an MA Fine Art at a local university in April. I started in September and it has been a roller coaster of a year. There is no way a year ago I could have imagined what I would be doing now! I still have to work out how to make a living but it has been a wonderful journey of self discovery. You can read about the entire journey(starting in January 2015) on my blog at ailsabrims.com 🙂
