While I write this blog, I definitely feel happy and fortunate with so many things that has happened within this year. There have been so many ups and downs but now I can say with complete certainty that I really love what I do. Do you also feel the same? Are you HAPPY?
“Dont worry about what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive” – Howard Thurman
I feel so motivated reading these lines. We are climbing up the ladder someone tells us to. Doing things what the world wants us to and more often we lean the ladder against the wrong wall or no wall at all.
I never imagined that one day I would be blogging or would be known as a blogger. But there was always a question nagging me “what do YOU want to do in life?”. I always wanted to do something for myself that makes me happier.
When I published my first blog, there were lot of questions playing in my head like What will people think about me? Am I making a fool of myself? I even felt like going and deleting everything and sitting back. We all have a habit of hesitating. You have an excellent idea, a direction, but you do not say it or implement it because you are hesitant. That moment, that small hesitation sends a stress signal to the brain and we back off. We are not designed to do things that are uncomfortable or scary or difficult.
We are in a scripted life that everyone seems to be living. We are reaching for something that does not mean anything to us but we are doing it because everyone said we are supposed to be. We have to figure out what it is to make decisions and to know what our souls are made of. We learn things everyday, every minute, about what we love, what we hate and what we are good at. And if we do not spend time paying attention to that learning and applying it to the rest of our life- its all for nothing. To everybody, to any person, “tomorrow is new”- Make the move, whether your friends,family or partner believe it or not- YOU believe it. You never know a passion can come and hit you on your face.
So guys, this new year come out of your comfort zone, I did. Do the things you love to do, no matter whether we are paid or not. Do the things that people thank you for.
No matter how long you wait, the right ride will come. Go ahead and challenge yourself.:)
Wish you all a successful 2018 🙂
