How To Romance Your Life

What do I mean ‘romance your life? Is it an idea we were born with, that our lives were meant to be different to what we’ve been told?
How are we to make that shift from what we’ve been told to a different reality, one that was how we were meant to live?

Have you ever been in love?

Then you will know the feeling of being in love and how everything takes on a new exhilaration in life, like you’re floating on air.
That’s what I mean about life as it was meant to be lived.
A famous movie star once said she always performed her best work when she was in love.
I think it was Bette Davis.

What does ‘romancing’ mean then?

Why can’t life always be a ‘quality or feeling of mystery, excitement and remoteness from everyday life’ as described by a dictionary definition of ‘romance’?
Does this describe your life right now? Or not?
It’s a mystery, isn’t it?
Because, after all, I’ve got to believe it’s how we were meant to live, don’t you think?
Surely it’s where we are being drawn when we have feelings of inadequacy, failure, depression or midlife crisis.
It’s what’s going on whenever we feel unhappy about our lives. Isn’t it?
What if adjusting to romance is the way to fix it.
“Follow your bliss and doors will open where you never knew they existed” said mythology author Joseph Campbell.
Bliss = Romance.

I hope the ideas in my new book ‘Romancing Your Life & Changing The World’ (buy your copy above) will bring you a little closer to that idealised state of existence, life as she was meant to be lived, the true romance that is your life.

Love and Peace.

How to Love Your Life.

Life can be full of ups and downs.
At times, for some people most times, life can be mainly down.
I get it and I’ve written about my experience here, hoping it might help others.
I’ve been there and it sucks.
The worst part is when you can’t see a way out.
It can seem like this condition will go on forever.
I know, I’ve been there.
For 5 years I lived in a friend’s old caravan parked by the roadside outside their home in a small country town in the Australian bush.
I had just been declared bankrupt and I thought it was the end of my life. I’d been a freelance advertising copywriter in Melbourne where I had, over the past 30 years, worked at some of the hottest ad agencies in town.
Now my life was over and I had failed.
Wrong.
So my best advice, the great wisdom I gained from the experience of wanting to die, is this:
When you think it’s the end and you have failed, it’s likely just the beginning of something new and better than you ever had before.
I’d lost everything but, as it turned out, it didn’t matter.
Which is the second most important wisdom I can pass on to you:
It’s okay to let go … of everything if necessary.
Let go and go with the flow.
It’s against all we’re taught in our society, isn’t it.
Yet this is the path from a life that you don’t love to a life that you do (or will if only you can let go of what hasn’t worked for you).
It’s a bit scary, I know.
But not as scary as hanging on to a life in which you no longer belong.
The third essential wisdom I learned was this:
What you think is what you get.
Your thoughts may be creating your reality.
Stop thinking and talking about what you don’t love about your life because your thoughts will only bring more of the same.
Start thinking and talking and reading about what you’d like instead of dwelling on what you’ve got.
You have a purpose, find out what it is and go for it.
You need to love your life.
I did it and have never looked back.
You can read about what happened to me and how I dug myself out of the hole I was in in my book ‘Back to the Wall’.
Get your copy HERE.
As you read ask yourself, how can you apply what I lived – and learned – in your own life?
I wish you luck – and love.

How are we supposed to live?

Why are we here?

What are we meant to be doing with our lives?

And most important of all, how are we to survive in the everyday day-to-day struggle to live a decent life.

Here I am today living the happy life in a small fishing village by the bay close to my family

I’ve done it all from nothing.

I mean nothing.

And I now know a lot that I didn’t know back then when my life crashed and burned.
