Are you happy with who you are and where your life is today? Do you love yourself, or just little bits of yourself? Every day we have the choice to make changes to our life to alter the direction we want to be. Yesterday doesn’t have to define us, but if we don’t wake up and decide to change our directional course, nothing changes. If we don’t choose to change the way we are thinking, nothing will change. Living a positive life takes living with intention. You can’t have a positive life with negative thinking, or by surrounding yourself with a negative tribe. You have the power to be intentional with your thoughts. We attract what we vibe, and while it may sound so cliche, it’s the secret behind living a happy life.
I was miserable in my job. It wasn’t a career, but a job. The other employees were negative, morale was down, I had no passion for what I was doing, and I certainly didn’t feel that was I was doing was putting any good into the world. Misery seeped into my world. I was having nightmares, was filled with anxiety, depression was an understatement, and no matter how much I craved happiness, it felt out of my reach. One day, I decided I couldn’t do it anymore. It was time for me to make a change. I needed to do something I felt good about doing. Something I was passionate about doing, even if that meant taking a pay cut. In life we have to make sacrifices to achieve happiness. I changed my course of action and decided to jump in the trenches and do something I was passionate about. The moment I declared my intention, life immediately began to shift on its axis. I felt it. It was an earth shattering directional change that seemed to attract what I wanted, and even though the ground was unstable, instant balance and calmness happened.
It’s common knowledge we can’t up and quit our jobs, or stop adulting, but we can make changes to our lives that will cause the directional change we crave. Keep in mind, I didn’t quit my job before having another job. We can’t drop our responsibilities and hope things just fall into place. We have to declare what we want, start action, believe it will happen, but if we are not brave enough to believe it’s within our reach, we will never attain it. You have to work for what you want, but you also have to BELIEVE that it is possible. If you don’t believe that it is possible, you will prove yourself right every time.
If you could change your life today, what would you be doing? What brings you joy?
