When you think about life from a distance, you are alone. Apart from everything. You are born into apparent connections that you can withdraw yourself. Why choose to stay unhappy because of what the connections you find yourself tangled in? The ones that slow you down, make you cry, make you feel unwanted or that you’re not good enough?
In life, we’re brought up almost expected to just deal with whatever crosses our path and keep a smile on our face and deal with it. They call it strength.
So what about if being strong means something completely different. Inevitably things will come our way that we don’t want to be involved with. Some people call it fate. But what about if being strong means having the realisation that your happiness is not reliant on anything else.
See sometimes, you can become so caught up in the everyday chaos that you forget that you have ONE LIFE. You forget that you can change the way you live your life, you can change who you are and you can swap paths.
Look back at the last 5, 10 years. See how quickly it’s gone. Whilst your caught up fighting through problems that you don’t need to deal with another days gone. Then another week goes. Before you know it the new years come. Then you do the same thing again. ‘New Year, New Me’ and end up doing the same routine all year. Fighting for worthless things, getting stressed out and bored. You start to question the meaning of life because everything seems pointless.
The easiest change you can make is to take a step back. Reflect and make a plan. Make a plan that is going to make you happy. Change your life around. Change your job, change your career path, learn something new, make new friends and develop yourself as a person. Life goes on and you have one chance to get it right.
Smile everyday. Negativity starts with negative people. Let them go. Drop the negativity and make it apparent.
This doesn’t mean be selfish. Human natures natural hurt comes with the hurt you feel when bad things happen to your loved ones. Teach them to become open minded. Teach them to see the best in the situation and make sure you make them happy too.
Don’t let negative people bring you down. Not now. Not ever. Don’t let anybody snatch away the goodness in you. You’re better than that. Let them go. They are no good for you. Negative lifestyles are toxic. When you allow it to be around you that’s when you get consumed. You can’t function and you lose touch of yourself. Even when you think you’re happy, you truly aren’t – just like them you convince yourself.
Practise to be positive. Stay calm. Think good things. Help others to be the best they can and leave your mark. Make your life YOURS. It’s not anyone else’s. You are not reliant on anyone. You can make your life no matter what. The minute you let go of your unhappiness.
Make your life your own. You have one chance. One chance to be you. You don’t have time to waste.
