It’s your life; it’s your story; make it a great one! Are you living life to your expectations by pursuing your ideas, goals and dreams? Or are you living according to other people’s expectations? If so why?
Are you doing all that is expected of you by others, but feel unsatisfied or utterly miserable because you are not fulfilling your own goals and meeting your own needs? If so, then maybe it is time to evaluate yourself, your circumstances and current situation and decide if you are not going to make changes in your life to please everyone else and remain unfulfilled or are you going to break free from the control of others, and make the necessary changes in your life you have always wanted, to suit your needs and feel alive!
We only live once, it’s your story! As an adult you are entitled to live it the way you want to, to plan and pursue your dreams and live it your way. [Of course, given what you are doing is legal and not hurting anyone else.] If you are not in control of your life, someone else is!
Make it a great one! Yes, make your life a great one! You cannot change the past, but you can change how you are going to feel, think and act in the future. Start writing the chapters and goals of your life how you would like it to be, and don’t forget to act on your dreams. Live it, don’t just think about it.
