The One Thing That’s Keeping You From the Life You Want
Edited By : Stephanie Dawson
Everyone has a dream of how we want to live. Do we always get the life we want? There is only a handful of people who would answer yes. If we are aware we are not living the life we want, do we know the reason why, if yes, what are we doing to overcome that.
These may sound like obvious questions, but answering honestly can be difficult. If you can find the answer to these questions you can live the life you want. There are different priorities in everyone’s life, know what yours are. Be open to new ways of thinking which will give you a different perspective of life. Understanding that you cannot get happiness from outside circumstances like wealth, beauty, or power and that the happiness has more to do with the way you live every moment and how you value your loving relationships is what acts as a driving force for the way you live your life. You don’t need everything to be happy, being happy with what you have is more important. Focusing on things that you don’t have only makes you run after them and in the process you will not be able to enjoy the things that you do have. At times, you might find yourself running after something someone else has, pause for a moment and think if its something you really need, if not you will not get true happiness out of it.
We all want to live happily but do we actually have enough time for happiness? We seem so busy with our daily activities that we tend to ignore small things that make us happy. If we are looking for happiness, spend time on those little things that make us happy. Give time to relationships as the love and affection we get out of these relationships are also a source of happiness.
If you spend time thinking, you will also get to know what things stop you from living the life you want. Stop worrying about what other people think about you and live life in a way that makes you happy. Try to focus on today instead of worrying too much about your future, which can spoil your present.
Living life the way we want is something all of us want to achieve, it requires dedication and focus to achieve. If you have already decided its what you want, just go for it. If you keep delaying it can be that one thing that keeps you away from the life you want.
