February Creativity: Day Twenty Five….Do More of What Makes you Happy!
“ Life would be infinitely happier if we could only be born at the age of 80 and gradually approach 18. ”
— Mark Twain
Sometimes I wish life was as easy as a flow chart….or is it? It seems to me the human race always tend to make things more difficult than they are; there are always excuses using so-called logic to back us up. We prioritize what we deem as important…But in the end, doesn’t everything just come down to making a choice? And just like anything else in our lives….I believe happiness is a choice, at least for those of us that are able to read this right now.
For those countries full of strife and oppression, like most of Africa and other 3rd world countries (read this interesting article about the happiest and saddest countries in the world) no…it isn’t a choice. No matter how optimistic you are. When confronted with horrible living conditions and censorship of personal rights it is basically impossible to be happy. So for those of us NOT living in those regions of the world, what’s our problem?
For us, it IS as easy as a flow chart. If you aren’t happy…CHANGE SOMETHING!
DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!
Are you a paper pusher who secretly wishes to be a horse trainer?
Are you a construction worker who writes poetry on your lunch break?
Whatever your situation….
QUIT! AND DO WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY!
Even if it means taking a pay cut. DO IT.
You may have to rearrange your entire life to make it happen. DO IT.
Or if you can’t quit your day job then MAKE ROOM in your schedule to do what you love! You want to be a watercolorist? Tell your day job that you can’t work on Mondays…and devote all that time to what you love to do. FIND A WAY!
Don’t know what makes you happy? FIGURE IT OUT!
If it is regards to a career..check this gal out, she’s a career coach with “When I Grow Up”
Life is WAY damn too short and we are too damn blessed to be in countries where we have the FREEDOM to do/be whatever our heart desires. So why waste that opportunity?
Just. Do. it.
Stay tuned…TOMORROW: Don’t Force it!
