I’ve mentioned a lot that the majority of us are going to jobs that don’t excite us. We get up and go through the same morning routines, we take the same commute into work, and we have the same conversations with the same people day after day after day. I could never do that. In fact most of us can’t, but we settle believing that whatever our current situation is all that we can experience.
BEWARE AT 25 AND OLDER
Around this time in our lives most of us are settling into a “career.” College is behind us and the excitement of learning a new job has slowly sizzled away. For some of us the routine begins and we begin going through the motions without any sense of satisfaction. We overspend on unnecessary things, homes, decorations, cars, electronics, etc. Most of the time borrowing money from banks, aka credit cards, and we eventually accumulate so much debt and we’re forced to work jobs that don’t excite us so that we can pay back that debt. Capitalism at it’s finest.
WE ARE ALL STRONGER THAN THE WORLD TRICKS US INTO BELIEVING
When I feel comfortable I become bored. I crave new challenges and experiences. All of us do, but we’ve trained ourselves to ignore those cravings and accept that this is just the way life is. <<<Insert bullhorn here>>> WRONG! We all have life shit that we deal with. We all have bills, relationship problems, or anything else that tries slowing us down. It doesn’t mean we should become a slave to these things sacrificing the one thing that matters most, which is our own well-being.
THE MORE RIDICULOUS IT SOUNDS THE MORE WE SHOULD DO IT
It’s easy to talk ourselves out of idea because of how insane it may sound. We find ways to tell ourselves that it’s unrealistic. Or that it would just never work. Those feelings are called being scared. Being scared of stepping out of our comfort zone, and they are perfectly normal. Those feelings are my signal that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing.
This summer I have something huge planned (I’ll blog about it in the coming weeks, or connect with me on Instagram for updates). I could think of a million reasons why I shouldn’t do it, but the one most important reason why I should is what will force me to make it a reality. I decided a long time ago that I would always do whatever I wanted to do no matter how crazy it may seem, because I never want to experience regret at the end of my life.
