I know it’s human nature to sometimes feel like you are living in a rut, so whenever that does happen to you – and I sincerely hope it is infrequent – I want to offer several things you can try in order to “escape!”
First of all, take a good, hard look at yourself in the mirror, and realize that, to get to this current point in your life, you are already amazing, and full of unlimited possibilities.
Then, go for a walk, and just take notice of all of the beautiful things around you, like the warm sunshine, children playing without a care in the world, birds chirping, and your environment in general.
Next, make a list of all of the things you have already accomplished in life, and one that contains those that you still wish to get done.
Call it a bucket list, if you want, but make sure you think this through first, and include everything you always dreamed of since you were a child.
The point here is to realize that you are capable of doing anything you put your mind to, and if that includes something that has been on the back burner for years as a result of one reason or another, it is never too late to accomplish it.
I have learned through trial and error, and from experience, that if one is not happy in the activities that occupies his or her time, then it leaves a feeling of unfulfillment that cannot be counteracted by money, or other material things, such as cars, homes, jewelry, etc.
Simply put, happiness comes from within, so make sure you spend some time on introspection to find out what you true passion is.
You might also attempt something new – even if it is way out of line with your personality and comfort zone.
Hopefully, you will discover it to be totally enjoyable, and the start of more good things to come.
So, instead of waking up one day regretful over missed opportunities or chances never taken, make sure you leave no stone unturned in your quest for complete satisfaction in life.
Until next time, everyone, always reach for the moon, because, even if you miss, you will be among the stars!
