Hey all, we have talk for a second! I have been thinking a lot about this topic for a while now, and I think it’s time to get down to it. It is a topic that most of us think about on a daily basis, it is the last thing that crosses our mind in the morning, and it is the first thing that we think about in the morning. So what am I talking about? I’m talking abut figuring out what you want in life! I’m not talking about what you want today, or the petty things that come about, I’m talking about the things that you dream about, and the things that you know would make you truly happy. I’m talking about getting your dream career, getting your dream life and making your dreams become reality.
This is something that I have struggled with immensely over the years, as I’m sure we all have. Currently I’m doing the 9-5 grind, and it’s definitely not what I’ve always dreamed of. But who has? Everyone has dreamed of the job they want, the life they want, and the career they want.
Truly, if I’m being honest with you and with myself, I dream of owning my own business, blogging and being an author as I trapeze around the world with my soon to be husband in tow. As much as that seems like a far fetched dream to me right now, I have a plan and hope to get there one day. For now, I’m working on building experience, preparing for my first book to launch and trying desperately to find a design I really want to use on this site. #alwayschanging
Look At What You Love, Then Decide What You Want in Life
The saying goes, “find something you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life”… or something like that. I can’t help but think that is true. When you look at the things you love doing and the things you want to be doing, there is always a way to build a career and a life around it. At least this is what I keep telling myself.
At this point, I never thought I would be a published author at 25, and for me that is the first step on my way to doing what I love and what I want to do.
Figure out What TRULY Makes you Happy
Happiness is funny isn’t it? No two people share the same thoughts when it comes to true happiness. Many people have similar goals and aspirations, but just like no two people look exactly the same, no two people want the same thing in life. When you take a step back from the hustle and bustle, the craziness and the hectic of life, you can see what truly makes you happy. This might be a little thing that you can add in to our life, or it can be a complete overhaul.
Don’t Be Afraid to Chase Your Dreams
Chasing your dreams, and especially giving something up to do so, can seem hard and scary, and it is! But is it scarier than spending your life doing something that you hate? If you get the chance to chase your dreams then take it! And if a chance never presents itself, then make an opportunity. Fearing what really makes you happy, will make you more miserable in the long run. Remember that old saying “reach for the moon, and even if you fail you’ll land among the stars”. Chase your dreams, and don’t be afraid. Fear can hold you back from everything that you truly want in life. Go out, and get what you want!
Don’t let Others Put You Down
We live in a society of “shoulds” and “should nots”. We live in a time where everyone will take every chance they can get to put you down, and to tell you you’re not good enough. But you are.
You deserve to be happy! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
Everyone has an opinion of what you should want, and what you’re “allowed” to want. But guess what? You are allowed to strive for, go after and achieve everything you want! Don’t let anyone stand in your way, and don’t stand in anyone else’s. Support one another, and help everything create the success they want in life.
Live Your Life, You Only Get One!
This is the most real sentiment that I will cover in this article. It is the hard truth, but it is still true.
You only get one life, and spending it being miserable or not what you truly want to be doing is a waste. So stop making excuses, stop letting people and fear scare you, get out there and do what you always dreamed of doing what you want in life!
