What If You Stopped Pretending That Everything Was Okay?

You have a routine and you do the same thing day in and day out.  Lately, though, something is different.  You have begun to look at your life, your routine and have noticed that it is no longer what you want.

You’ve begun to think – I would rather be doing something else.  I want to make an impact in this world.  I want to create.  I want to be living differently.   

You have no idea where to begin.  You have no idea what you want.  You have no idea who you are.   Change begins right here.  When you begin to see things differently.  When you begin to answer the question, “how are you,” honestly.  When you answer the question honestly to yourself first.

When you see a friend and they ask, “How are you?”, do you just smile and say, “Fine, and you?”

What if you stopped pretending that everything was okay?   What if you said what’s on your mind?

I’m ready for a change.  I’m not the same person I was.  I want to be happier.

When you do that, you connect with another person.  Possibly someone that can offer you some insight.  When you ask for help, you connect with community.  When you connect with community you begin to see things differently, to think differently and you gain traction and then you gain momentum. When you smile and say, “I’m fine,” when you really aren’t, you just stay stuck in the same place.

What if you stopped pretending that everything is fine?  What’s possible?

P.S.  If you are looking for community and connection, I invite you to join my private FB group Life-On Purpose.  This is a community of individuals who are seeking to live their lives authentically and purposefully.


  1. Sometimes it’s hard to tell if I’m pretending, or if it is okay. It’s interesting. Like I am not sure if I am complacent or content. Thank you for the thoughts.
