I have chosen now to live a life more relaxed, to look on and enjoy it, instead of having it wave as it passes me by.
For some reason as we reach the stage of "Adulthood" we begin to impose these regulation upon ourselves. Regulations like : I must have a house, I must have a nice car, I must have a career, I must have a lot of money, I must..I must...I must.
These guidelines dictate what we do, what we buy, what we become.
This pressure to conform can lead us to live a life that is not of our own choosing. A life that has been handed (or forced) to us or on us, It leads to unhappiness, disappointment, and emptiness.
What we fail to realize is that we have the option, the strength, and the ability to change how we live. These guidelines are just that, guides that are not set in stone.
You can choose to follow them or not.
If you have yet to come across people already living by alternate rules, let me be the first to say they exist! (you can start by looking at the blogs of greatness tab)
I don't know how these life guidelines became standard. Everyone has their own expectations of what this life is.
My success is not my neighbors.
You should always be in control of your life, and I think many of us lose sight of that.
If you find yourself at a point in life where unhappiness, disappointment, or emptiness have become the norm. I would like you to reflect on when this became the case.
Reflect and then I would like you to assess how you will change this.
Change it because you can. Do not make excuses by saying " Yea but ___" , " It's not that easy to just ____"
The truth is, it is. It may not be easy, and it may be a struggle to get to where you want, but let me assure you the happiness that will enter your being, that cannot be described in words.
Let go of what's holding you down, and take control of your happiness, your experience, YOUR LIFE !
