Have you ever wondered if you are right where you are supposed to be? If you are being the person your suppose to be? Honestly this is something that I have rarely had to struggle with. Fortunately! I talk to many people daily, who still aren't satisfied with what life path they are on, or what purpose they are suppose to make. Thats OK!
When I was a child my parents always told me I could do anything I wanted to do, or be anything I wanted to be. They weren't joking. We literally have every bit of control of our lives. Yes we are all raised differently, with rough childhoods, some with blessed childhoods, but in the end your life is in your hands. My mom proved to me that at any age you can become a successful changed person. She went back to WKU in 2007 and completed a dream of hers and is working at an amazing place changing lives that she never ever would have thought of herself doing. So many people get stuck in a rut, thinking "this is it, this is what i'm doing for the rest of my life." You have the opportunity to make things happen, its just the will power to start. Dreams take risks for sure, but what is life without risks? Im sure you've ran a red light this week...I mean what a risk that is! Haha BE BRAVE!
I hear so many people give credit to people for their own happiness (that sounds harsh). I also hear so many blame others for their own mess ups and their sadness and miserable life. GET YOURSELF TOGETHER! I have learned that no matter how unhappy I am, or happy...the day goes on. Tomorrow will be here and you can either change your mind on how your going to conquer the day or you can be negative and waste another glorious one for no good reason. It could be your job, marriage, friendship, or family even bringing you down...but you're letting those things happen. So take control! By no means don't go quit your job, get a divorce, or wreck your unhealthy friendships because of reading my blog, I don't want that on me! HAHA But I want you to reflect on the things that make you mad, irritated, or ruin your day and the things that keep you from being happy every day. Thats right, EVERY DAY. Write them down, and look over them and ask yourself "Why am I letting this get to me? Is my negativity bringing more negativity to others? Am I being the best person I can be?" Answer those in your mind then rip them up and toss them. Start over with a new day!
My whole life I have been a free bird...just doing what I want to do, when I want to do it. Some call that selfish. I call it AWESOME! If I want to start another job Im going to do it! If I want to go on a girls night I'm going. I literally have no clue what next week may hold for myself, which sounds dangerous and rebellious. That might be what I am I guess, I cant put my finger on it really. I'm not saying be like me at all. Im completely happy for everyone that settles down, takes naps, and watches tv series every night, but I would literally pull every strand of hair out of my head with the thought of doing that. I like being lazy sometimes and just chillin' mainly on Sundays. The point of me telling you all of this is, sometimes when I tell people this, they respond with, "Thats awesome you still do those things, and adventure!" Well thank you, but you can do all of that too. I want everyone to be happy. 120% live life to the fullest potential, don't waste your life on being boring kind of life. I know I'm 26 years old with readers somewhat older than me thinking i'm an amateur with no kids and a wild streak. I will guarantee you when I have kids I will be the exact same person living somewhat of the exact same life minus the wild nights and alot less money, but I will be the same free person doing what I love (with my kids) because my parents took us EVERYWHERE and did EVERYTHING. Things I will never forget and things that I want my kids and everyone else's kids to experience. I do give my parents credit for giving me my spirit and ability to do pretty much anything I set my mind to. I may not be good at something, but I will always try something atleast once!
Ending this post on a good note...wherever you are right now reading this, morning, afternoon, night, stop and think "Am I living my life to my best most awesome potential?" If not, why? And then tomorrow lets start working on changing it. Look for the dream job you have always wanted. Look for the love of your life and speak up. Take the trip. Gain some courage and take the risk! Our clocks are ticking people.
I love ya'll, all of ya!
