Some people settle for okay. Some people are happy to live a life which is ‘just fine’ and that’s good if you’re happy with your life and not always thinking ‘what if’ or ‘I wish I had more of this or done more of that’. You can also let every day life get in the way of what you hoped and dreamed for. What did you want to be when you were a teenager? Where did you want to live? What did you see yourself doing day to day? Why didn’t you pursue it, maybe you didn’t want it anymore or maybe you just let life get in the way?
No matter where you are, how old you are or what your doing, take a step back from every day things and look at your life. Are you happy with all aspects of it or are there things you’d like to change, make better or grow in.
The new year is always a good time to reflect and I’m not saying in a judgemental way but in a honest and self loving way ask yourself ‘Am I happy’ then write a list of all the things you’d like to do to make you happier and take you to the life you dream of. Maybe it’s as small as having a tumble dryer or as big as becoming an astronaut. Nothing is impossible! It’s never too late! I repeat it’s never too late!
Choose one or two things you’d like to focus on in 2014 and make a tiny step each and every day to take you closer to that hope or dream. It might mean you need to turn the TV off for 30 mins a day or wake up a bit earlier to do that step. But do it! The dream will start to feel closer, more achievable and maybe by the end of the year you’ll even have it. Then you’ll look at your life again this time next year and yes they’ll probably be something else you want to be better or different but this is what life is… A journey! Don’t settle for okay if your not happy with okay.
