Sometime flashes of brilliance seem to happen out of nowhere, and a solution pops into your seemingly out of nowhere. It’s the epiphany you have been waiting for. An epiphany is a moment when you have a brilliant flash of clarity, sometimes it’s the motivation you need to make radical changes, sometimes it’s the realization that your life is not what you want it to be.
Many people go looking to therapists or life coaches looking for an epiphany. Looking for all of the emotional pain they carry to be wiped away with one aha moment. Having an epiphany is a great thing, but what you do with that moment of clarity is really what is important. Our habits have become ingrained over a lifetime that changing behavior is more difficult. An epiphany will force you to see life and your situation in a different light.
Here are Epiphanies Everyone Should Have that Will Make Your Life Better
You are not defined by a number on a scale
At the end of your life that last thing you’re going to be thinking about is what you weighed at 30. Forget the diet obsession, the numbers on a scale or living on grapefruit for days at a time. The only thing that matters is your health and how you feel.
There is nothing wrong with being alone
The fear of growing old alone is common one and people often find themselves settling for a situation they aren’t happy with. Learn to be comfortable with your own company.
You aren’t defined by what people say
What matters is how you feel about yourself, you can choose. Don’t let others define you and tell you who you are, your worth is not defined by the irrelevant opinions of other people.
You will never be finished
You will never stop learning, your to do list will never be done and there will always be some chore you have to do. That’s what life is all about. Focus on the end result and celebrate everything you’ve accomplished.
Your purpose will find you
You will go through many transitions to get to a place of happiness and fulfillment. Pain and heartache are going to be part of the journey but they have their purpose too. Don’t waste time with regrets, every experience will help you become who you were meant to be. Take the journey for what it is and embrace it.
An epiphany will happen to you rather unexpectedly, that is the nature of epiphanies. Embrace them when they come to you and take action on what you have learned.
