It’s Your Life, After All

I had an interesting message from a friend today, who described her life as not her own. You see she has spent her life, college, career, everything, doing what other’s wanted and expected of her.  And now she wonders why she feels unfulfilled.

You can’t live someone else’s dreams. You have to focus on what it is YOU want to do. Find your passion in life. Do the things that promote your happiness. Because if you aren’t happy, you can’t make anyone else happy.  It’s like when you’re on an airplaine and the oxygen masks fall down. There’s a reason they tell you to put yours on first.

My friend explained how she gets so distracted and can’t accomplish her goals, because she tries to do too much. I think distractions are of the devil. Don’t give in! Stay focused, stick to your goal. I like a quote by author Ron Carlson, “The writer is the one who stays in the room.” In other words, don’t let yourself be distracted, stay put until the job is done. No one will ever believe in you as much as you do. So how much do your believe in yourself? If you don’t like something you see, all you have to do is change it. It’s called ‘free will’ and it’s a gift from God. Use it!
