We all know it, we’ve all been there. Trust me when i say, every single human you see on Instagram or facebook “Living their best life”, has stopped to look out the window and think “WTF am i doing with my life”!!
So after many years of trying to discover myself/find what i want to do with my life, i was continuously having this internal battle of whether to work harder, say f##k it and pack it all up and move abroad, study, start clothing lines, start small business, start anything, something, anything that would become exactly what i wanted to do with my life. I couldn’t tell you the amount of ideas that run through this head every minute of the day - one minute im moving to LA and the next im buying investment properties, and im still not sure if either of them are even remotely close to what i want to do!
However, one reocurring thought is always present, the “I want the life they Live”, you know them, those certain individuals that have made resident in our phones, laptops, ipads and have embedded that “what life should look like” view in our heads - those social media influencers that seem to always be on holidays or at events and single handedly started the “living my best life” catch phrase - that’s the life i want, i think…..?
My point is that our generation put so much pressure on ourselves to work more, be more and need more now, we think we need to know exactly what our path is because it looks like everyone else does!
We create anxious minds and unrested brains, we think everyone else is working harder and doing more i.e “work while they sleep, so you can have the life they dream of”!
FFS people, can we stop glamorising working ourselves to death!!!
Work hard, yes! Become educated, yes! Start business and fail or start businesses and succeed OR just work in a freaking cafe if thats what makes you happy in life but please don’t drive yourself to the brink of insanity by doing so, especially if you don’t even know if that’s what you want
We need to get a handle on the fact that it’s ok to not know what you want in life today, tomorrow or 10 years from now, its ok to change your views on life and your future 15 times (in my case 48 times and counting) and most of all we need to know its ok to take a break and just be present.
What i’m saying here is that life is not about knowing exactly what you want to do, it’s about learning what you like doing and creating beautiful experiences to go with it, we only get one shot at living how we want to live, so why would you ever stop or settle for something that you aren’t entirely sure you are ok with?
It’s never too late to change your path and it’s never too late to change your mind.
This rut we speak of is poisoning our thoughts, yet we are the only one who can administer the antidote.
