It’s time we dig ourselves out of this rut!!!
It’s not ok to accept unhappiness and defeat. It’s not ok to wake up without purpose, motivation, and something to look forward too. It’s just not ok. In the middle of the storm, it can be so hard to see that the sun is shining somewhere else. We invest so much into our careers, school, friends, and relationships that the thought of change is paralyzing. The thought of all you have invested not being there is a chilling one. But in our hearts, we know that not making a change isn’t how we want to live the rest of our lives. Personally, I have so many dreams, goals, and ambitions that have never been achieved. Far too often I wake up and forget that I have a choice just as you do. We can get busy living in the rut we created or we can get busy digging our way out.
What about all the things you’ve built or achieved in your current endeavors? You may not be happy but you can’t just throw in the towel, can you? There may be a few ways to look at this. Are you really losing anything? All that experience will still be with you no matter what you do. Memories don’t disappear just because you move on. You may not have a corner office but you also may not wake up dreading your day either. No matter what we choose to do there will be challenges and I’m not talking about giving up when it gets hard. That might be the best time to double down but when you look in the mirror we both know that being challenged and being unhappy is not the same.
If you are at the point where you know there only one direction for you to go make damn sure you take it. Don’t accept the pain, misery or sadness of settling. We only get one chance on this planet and every day you don’t at least push toward your dream is a day lost. Whether you are 15, 45 or 75 you still have days that are precious in the tank. Let’s not let them go to waste.
With enough time everything changes
Death and taxes are part of the expression but I think the better example is change. You can try to hold on or you can be patient and wait for it to happen. Your hearts wanting one way or the other will play no part in the fate that is inevitable. That twist of fate is change itself. Put in the work and you’ll get up out of the gutter (if you are unlucky enough to have found yourself there). Maybe not today but you will change your standing one way or the other. If not you’ll possibly just wind up somewhere worse. The same can be said about the fairy tail. Think you have it all? Ha, it’s all a matter of time. Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes the trick is knowing when to cash in your chips and check out of the hotel. Other times it the change you are looking for is just around the corner waiting for you to double down or go all in.
Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes the trick is knowing when to cash in your chips and check out of the hotel. Other times the change you are looking for is just around the corner waiting for you to double down or go all in.
Regardless of what the specific situation is the one constant is that nothing is without change. For better or worse you are tied to its cruel unpredictability. Maybe the key to dealing with it stops, take a deep breath and think of it as a just a new opportunity to get better at whatever it is you need to be better at. Maybe just at being a better person.
So if you are currently holding a hand that is less than ideal just wait because you’ll get dealt a new one soon enough. Make the most of it when the time comes.
Sometimes we get frustrated – Thank you for helping
Sometimes we can feel defeated – Thank you for not letting me give up
We question our choices – Thank you for your opinion
We get sick – Thank you for helping us get well
At times we come up short – Thank you for giving
Yeah, life is hard but thank you for being part of ours!!!
We know the road is hard for each and every one of us. Sometimes the most unlikely things and people are the things that are the hardest to bare and the most uplifting. To all those people who do what you do just because thank you. So many of you are selfless and caring and nobody acknowledges your efforts. We may not say it often but it doesn’t go totally unnoticed. You are appreciated.
