Feeling like you are stuck in a rut? It's okay, most people do. And sometimes, you feel you can't get out. So, you learn to accept the boring routine as a general fact of life.
Change seems like a
risk not worth taking. That is what makes you more fearful of
starting afresh. But the cost is enormous–you are sacrificing your
happiness to enjoy a feeling of safety.
Instead of moving
forward, you dig yourself in.
But here's the
thing–if you don't like your life, make a change. You can move,
you are not planted there.
If your job is not giving you any satisfaction, then QUIT!
What is the point of sacrificing your mental, physical, and emotional well-being just to get a lousy paycheck at the end of the week? You can still make money while doing a job you like. You just have to make a bold step to make this happen.
And don't use age
as an excuse. People have completely turned their lives around in
their 60s and 70s. Happiness is an important pursuit at whatever
stage you are in life. So, there is no need to give up on your
happiness and life's purpose so you can pay your bills. Trust me,
it will not be worth it.
If your friends do not bring you happiness, then LET THEM GO!
Be around people who
inspire you and motivate you to keep moving forward. Why be around
people who suck the life out of you through their negativity?
Don't wait on
someone to come and rescue you from the toxic influences in your
life. That task falls entirely on you.
Be around people who
match your energy. Don't settle for mediocrity. You are meant for
much bigger things and know that you absolutely deserve them.
If your relationship is not bringing you happiness, then make it END!
There are many people in the world, and the right one for you should give you what you need to be happy in life. There is more to a relationship than dates, kisses, texts, and hugs. A relationship should help you grow into a better person. So, if you feel like your partner is dragging you down and making your life miserable, then cut them loose.
If you are living in a city you don't like, then MOVE!
Sure, you might know
this city better than any other place in the world. But familiarity
is not all it takes to be happy. So, don't let the fear of moving
into an unfamiliar city hold you back. Keep in mind that many things
in this life exist just beyond your comfort zone. You should be happy
in the place you are living in.
If a look at your life makes you sad, then change your PERSPECTIVE!
Maybe you are your
own worst critic. You worry about things you should not give a damn
about, and you beat yourself up over things you have absolutely no
control over. But guess what? That's life! So, change your
perspective and be a little more upbeat. Be happy with life and don't
let any situation take that away from you.
At the end of the
day, the most important thing is your happiness. If anything in your
life does not make you happy, then you have an obligation to do
something about it. Nobody else will. So, what are you waiting for?
