There’s limited room in your life, what are you going to allow to take up space?
Happiness is simply realizing things we appreciate, but if we’re too busy occupying space with things to worry about, then there won’t be much room to be happy.
Don’t tell me what’s important, don’t tell me what’s realistic, all of that is arbitrary in the grand scheme of things. What’s that grand scheme you ask? It’s that continual promise we try to ignore, the promise that this life will come to an end.
For me, that means the few moments I have of existence should not be wasted worrying. Am I immune of worry, not at all, anyone who says they are, is probably lying, or selling something. What I am though, is mindful that the limited space in my life needs to be filled with things that make me smile. Since my life mainly exists in my head, the only way I can fill it up is to choose the things I focus on.
If that means cutting off toxic relationships, friends or family, then so be it. If that means being honest with myself, and no longer making excuses for the life I have, so be it. If it means shortening this journey, by taking all the risks in the world, then that’s how I’ll choose to live.
The only person that can make you excited to get out of bed in the morning is …… wait for it…….YOU.
Create the life you want, delete the things you don’t enjoy, or accept what you have.
Sounds easy, but very difficult to do, on the bright side, you have your entire life to keep trying, however long/short that is =)
