Everyone experiences life with a stream of different continuous moments. Many of these moments include a time when realisation has struck you and this may have encouraged you to make changes for your happiness.
Don’t waste your time being unhappy.
Many of us have spent time being unhappy, so now I live by ‘if it doesn’t make you happy don’t do it’. This encourages better workflow as I do work when I am in the ‘flow’ (click here for 9 steps to achieving flow), which makes my work more effective. By doing this, you enjoy the time you are relaxing more as you have agreed to yourself you need a break. So you don’t worry about what you ‘should’ be doing.
“Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves. But it is something I must do.” – Marilyn Monroe
“I recently starting at Solent University, in Southampton. Becoming a student has all happened because of inspiration. This has led to strong motivation and determination to achieve and reach my goals.
Throughout my early school and teenage years, I was always in a serious relationship. I always missed the typical girls night out, occasional family gatherings and social events. Like festivals and gigs. I was pushing myself and great opportunities away. Whilst loosing amazing memories that could have been made for just one person.
After years of being in that one person’s back pocket, it finally clicked that I was better than this, that I was worth more and could achieve more by being out of that pocket. I believe what I am saying is that the people who love me, care for me and want me to be happy, are my inspiration. They have made me believe in myself, and made myself love me for who I am. They have told me I will achieve big goals and dreams, that I will have that Rolex round my wrist and that I am something special.
Family and friends are my inspiration.” Scarlett Ayres.
I can relate to Scarlett as I know how important it is to find yourself and not live for someone else’s plan for you. I know from experience that going to University or just moving to live alone makes you realise what sort of person you want to be. Also that no matter where you end up the people who care for you will always support you.
