Do you ever just feel like you’re going through the motions? Like your day to day routine is just “getting you by”. You can feel it deep in your bones. Life is good, your circumstances are good, but you’re stressed and anxious. Maybe you can’t pinpoint why. You just know in your gut that something is off. We’re conditioned to just “deal with it”, to bury it deep. I mean, it’ll all work itself out in the end, right?
Do you want to know the root of those feelings? Unfulfillment. Something in your current existence is lacking. And it’s probably not a person, or a thing. It’s your lifestyle. I mean think about it. What are you spending 75% of your waking hours doing? Do you enjoy it? Do you look forward to it? Are you radiating positive energy because of it? Is it your passion? If not, it’s time to re-evaluate.
You guys! We were made for so much more than the mundane! We were each birthed with special interests and talents. Are you utilizing them? You can do absolutely anything you put your mind to, no matter the adversity you’re facing. Believe me, I’ve seen it. But you can also allow the world, and doubt, to darken those dreams.
Do you believe you are 100% in charge of the way your life turns out? You should; because you are. When you feel unfulfilled it seeps in to every aspect of your life. You may not realize it, but your anxiety and bitterness reflect in everything you do. We can’t continue to go through life trying to follow societal norms. The quicker you realize that you are unique and your talents/goals/dreams only belong to you, the quicker you’ll realize that only YOU are responsible for making them happen. Nobody cares as much about your dreams as you do, I promise you.
Tonight, if you’re feeling unfulfilled, I challenge you to dig deep. Meditate on these thoughts and your goals. Talk with a loved one about them, write them down on paper; it doesn’t matter how – just get them out! Then make them happen. You should never feel like a slave to someone else’s dreams. You can’t fly with someone’s wings.
