Have you ever wondered what life principals underlie every step of your way? How can one person have their life figured out from the very early age, and another take a lifetime to find their calling? How can one person have a family in their early 20s, and another focus solely on their career until their late 30s? How can one person instantly know what their perfect job and perfect place are, and another have to try dozens of positions to eventually feel content? The truth is - everything in our lives has to be earned or deserved. Sounds kind of scary and burdening, doesn’t it? But it's not. It does not mean we have to work ourselves to the point of exhaustion, stop sleeping and eating if we want to get a "point" towards our dreams; on the contrary, all we have to do is put ourselves together, accept our current state, be grateful for what we have, and do something small towards either achieving our goals (for those who know what they are); figuring out what our goals are; or just being a better person by becoming kinder to ourselves and to people around us. How many times have we heard that we need to get out of our comfort zone to learn something new and become a more well-rounded person? Well, maybe it's time to get IN our comfort zone. Maybe it's time to do what we like, regardless of what others think, because when we find that place in life, when we feel comfortable with who we are, getting out of our comfort zone becomes meaningful as opposed to simply pushing our limits for no reason.
Happy New Year, everyone! May this year be an opportunity for you to ‘earn’ that step to the next level of your life, to move forward closer to your goals and dreams and to enjoy every second of the way.
