I’m a firm believer that there are certain phrases to live by, and “life is too short” is one of them.
It’s a very simple saying. It can be sad, or incredibly motivating, depending on how you look at it. I think we need to keep this in mind at all times, and remind ourselves of it constantly.
We need to remember to revisit ourselves and reevaluate what we’re doing, and exactly why we’re doing it. Why we have the lifestyle we do, the job we do, the hobbies we do, the friends we surround ourselves with. Is it good for you? Or are you merely just being robotic?
Find the things you love, and do them often. Because seriously, life is too damn short. Balance is key, yes, but while you are able to do so, take those smaller risks. Book more trips, quit the crappy job you’re doing and figure it out.
I was recently sitting down with a friend of mine, who is incredibly unhappy with their work and living situation. I offered a plethora of options, including job advice which could then lead to finding an independent place to call home. Every idea I came up with got shot down. “I can’t do that because of this, this and that.”
I thought about it after and realized that some people won’t see the light at the end of the tunnel and will continue to voluntarily be unhappy.
I know I certainly don’t want to be someone in that position. I want to make a conscience effort to at least try and make my goals come to life, even if its hard. Nothing is meant to be easy, which is why it will feel so rewarding in the end.
Taking time to revisit your current situation, and what is working and what isn’t will keep you fresh and rejuvenated, and also ensure you’re doing everything you want!
Alright, coffee chat over. I definitely need another cup though….
Happy Sunday everyone! Get rest, and enjoy the day.
