Holding on to something you have instead of going for what you really want is a recipe for unhappiness.
Let me say it again!
Holding on to something you don’t really want instead of going for what you truly desire is a recipe for unhappiness.
People stay in jobs they hate due to a number of reasons. One being tradition. They saw their parents work at a company for 20, 30 years and retire. They stay because it pays the bills. Maybe there are kids, a mortgage, sick family members who need health insurance.
I GET IT, BUT . . .
What is your happiness worth?
“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 NIV.
The migraines, colds, lethargy could be due to your own unhappiness.
How do you get to a career that fulfills you? Take a class to improve your skills, join a professional group to network with professionals, start a side-hustle that you LOVE.
There are people dating/married to men/women who cheat, mistreat, deceive, etc. They stay out of convenience, fear of being single, or something other than true love. Deep down, some believe that they do not deserve any better. Your happiness cannot be gotten from someone else, great relationship or not. However, being with the wrong person can lead to stress, angst, mistrust – all of which contribute to unhappiness.
LET IT GOOOOO . . . but have a plan.
That’s right. Plan for your happiness. Imagine it. Create a vision board. Look at it everyday. Locate the dream job. Find out it’s requirements. Work to become qualified. Network with professionals in your industry . . and BAM! You are doing something you love.
Go to the gym. Get a meal plan, Read books. Become that interesting irresistible person the man/woman of your dreams will be attracted to . . . and BAM!
Happily Ever After!
You can have love and happiness but you have to let go of what you really do not want. Have faith and go after what you really want.
You deserve it.
