Take a journey to your best possible life. It requires you to be healthy. Depart from the habits and routines holding you where you are and move toward the rich, rewarding life only you can create. Recognize that journeys require preparation, without preparation, you are just going for a walk again. Don't start until you have begun to see the parts that must change. Mindfulness is the starting point. It is the primary action.
There are no rules against you making this journey. In fact, the rule is anyone can move forward when they are ready. You can't rush it so the pressure is only another misperception to recognize and change. You are creating this and you work best when you have the clarity that comes with relaxation.
If you are not satisfied with your life now, change is necessary. Recognize that change is difficult and the environment for change is a big part of succeeding. Create the environment that accepts time and failure as a part of success.
Pay attention to the things that move you in the right direction and let go of the things that don't. Most people already know what they need, they just get caught up in other things.
