What makes you happy?
Really, what makes you happy? What are the things that make you feel alive?
If you say it’s the 9-5 work, then good for you. But I can say that people like you are very rare indeed. 😛
For most of us, it’ll be small things like hobbies, passions, family, etc. It can be anything ranging from something simple such as writing, diving, gardening, to something more extreme such as skydiving, mountain climbing, etc. Or it could be spending time with your kids, and watching them grow up. Or watching movies, and reading books.
The list goes on and on and on. And the list can be very different from one person to another.
But enough of the things that you already know.
What I want to say is, if you already know what makes you happy…..then why aren’t you doing more of them? Don’t you want to be happy?
Or, you’re going to tell me you don’t have the time? Everyone of us has the same amount of time. It’s up to you to manage it. And if you say you’re very busy with your work and you’re neglecting things that make you happy…things that make you feel alive….don’t you think there’s something wrong somewhere?
Perhaps it’s time to reflect a little before it’s too late?
And if you tell me you don’t have the money to support whatever that you like…….I’m sure there are things which come free.
And if you tell me you are not happy even after doing things that you initially thought are going to make you happy…….then you’re not trying hard enough to find the things that you REALLY love.
Simple as it sounds, most people actually don’t do what they like. They don’t have a hobby or a passion that make the tick. They give countless excuses why they have no time and no money to do all those things. They are creating a huge barrier in between themselves, and the things that make them feel alive.
So, are you one of those people too? Remember….it’s your choice.
