Let’s get really deep for a second… I know this is a “Beauty” blog but life is beautiful (unless lived incorrectly) and I want to get personal. I’m in that weird, philosophical (2:something o’clock in the morning) mood…
When you look at your life – the way it is – are you happy? Like, really happy? ‘Cause sometimes, we get too content and used to a situation/routine that we don’t actually stop to realise that – on the face of it – we could be a lot happier if something was a little different.
Do you feel as though you have accomplished all you have wanted to accomplish at work/school, in your personal life, or are well on your way to?
Are you happy with your circle and the people you surround yourself with?
Do you feel like you’re living life without regrets? I, for one, regret not eating that Pad Thai when I had the chance… 😢
Is there nothing you ‘coulda, woulda, shoulda’ done differently?
I want all of the answers to those questions to be a “YES!” for you. If not, only you know what to do…
Look, no one said it’s going to be easy, but everyone knows it’ll definitely be worth it.
Chase that dream of yours. Follow that heart. Do what you want. Be the person you are and improve on yourself to become the person you want to be. Surround yourself with the people you want to be around.
It’s really that simple!
Time stops for no-one. Before we know it, Earth is a myth, our life is a myth, the people we’ve met along the way are myths, but the memories we make/made? They stay with us forever. Do you really want to live life with a “what if?” mentality? Is waking up one day – when it’s too late to change it – what you want?
Would you feel happy knowing that there’s something you’ve wanted to do with your life but were never able to out of lack of courage, fear, uncertainty? Is there some sort of heartache that you’re harbouring? Are there words left unsaid or business left unfinished?
Life, it’s all about risks – and taking them. No, I don’t mean jumping off buildings without a harness… There’s a difference between “risks” and stupidity. I’m talking about making those changes that you want to see, opening up to forgiveness and letting past resentments go, allowing you to start a fresh. I’m talking about living differently, biting the bullet and going after what you want, what you really, really, want! (Listen to ‘The Spice Girls’, they said it best…)
To do so, you need to think about what’s holding you back and cut it off or rid it from your life entirely, no matter how painful or stressful. Phobias and fears (which are phobias) are all in our heads. Like lots of things. What we need to do is listen to our hearts as they don’t fear anything.
I really hope you’re happy, but if not, that’s not to say you’ll never be “happy” nor that you can’t be. It’s not too late.
Of course everyone has their own ideas on what “happiness” is and what it means to them… What I personally meant by it is that there are ways to measure your level of happiness.
Be honest when answering these questions… Does the life you lead make you want to get up extra early in the morning? Make you have a spring in your step as you leave for work or school? Make you want to go back home after a day’s work? All of these… They’re important indicators as to whether we are truly happy or not.
Again, if the answer is “no” or “not really” to some (or all) of these questions, I hope this post motivates you to make even the slightest of changes to your life so it can be happier. You deserve that!
Everything happens for a reason. Remember, things that don’t take time won’t be worth it… You’re travelling at your own speed. Fate/Spirituality plans the rest.
