You Can Have It All

Have you ever had a moment where you measured the current status of your life next to the list of things you wanted out of life? I'm not talking about comparing your life with others, I'm talking about comparing your current life to what it was and what you would like for it to be. Perhaps, that moment came after a success or even a disappointment. After that you asked yourself, "Can I have it all?"

Having it all is defined differently by individuals. One person may define "all" as having a spouse, family, and career. Where as someone else definition of "all" is having a lifestyle filled with wealth and fame. Whatever it is you that want out of life I believe you can have it. The challenge is being able to clearly define your definition of "all' and how you want for it to look in your life.  How you measure having it all to what it is you want with what it is you actually have is subjective to your desired lifestyle. This clicked with me years ago after I experienced a huge disappointment in my life. You see, I'm a risk taker. I have a high level of faith and because of that I'm willing to do things others may not and in an unconventional way. This allowed me to learn that having it all is both attainable and temporary. It's temporary because as your life changes, your desires and definition of having it all also changes.

Everything in moderation. Too much of one thing and not enough of another can be unhealthy. However, a lot of one thing and a little of another could be just what you want in your life and therefore is all that you need. Allowing you to have it all! That scale of too much of one thing and a little of another will adjust as your life changes. Your priorities change. When your priorities change, your perception changes as well. If you feel like you don't have it all based on your desires, remember, you may not be where you want to be but you are no longer where you were. Progress is success.
