I often find myself wondering, why the hell is life so tricky! It seems like life hardly ever goes to plan and trust me, I like to plan. I’ve always wanted to be one of those free-spirited people that just take life for what it is. But I am 25 now, half way to 50 and I am thinking, what is actually going on here.
The old me used to say “By the time I am 24, I am going to be married with a baby. Driving round in my white Range Rover, with a massive smile on my face for no reason”.- yeah and pigs can fly.
(I know this post has started off really negatively but I am going to put a positive spin on this I promise).
What I have come to realise is that just because things don’t go to ‘plan’ this doesn’t mean we have to feel miserable all the time. We haven’t failed, we have set expectations that we have not met. Big deal, time to make some new goals hunnies.
Life is all about making your soul happy! happiness starts from within, so if my/your soul is not happy how can we possibly live a happy life. Of course external and material things will bring us happiness but this is only temporary. You could have everything you ever wanted and still be unhappy.
Before I start preaching about how amazing it is to just be happy, I have a confession to make, this is all new to me.
For some reason my brain doesn’t realise how good things are, I always want more. “What a selfish little brat”-I hear you mumble. It is a terrible trait to have which is why I am going to take myself on a spiritual journey to being completely and head over heels happy. We all get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life and forget to enjoy the moment. One day we are going to wake up and realise that we have been wishing most of our life away. But not anymore!
I’ve started to see life as one big game, we have to overcome the obstacles thrown at us and still be raring to go. Everybody will experience their own problems in life whether they’re big or small. The goal is to deal with them as best we can and come out the other side feeling as happy as possible.
Join me on my journey month by month, I am going to focus on being happy and living life to the fullest. Slowly but surely we are going to make our lives exactly the way we want them and any obstacles we hit along the way will only make us more determined.
