The beautiful thing about this life is that you get to choose who you want to be.
Life should be lived authentically. This means living your truth and fulfilling your purpose. People who follow their intended path are happier and more peaceful than those who do not.
If you find that you are not happy with your life, know that you have the power to change it. Some changes might take longer than others, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do it. It can be hard to get out of a life lived to make ends meet and move to a more fulfilled, rewarding and financially blessed life.
We all have the ability to change, but changes must start from within. If there is something you want that brings more joy to the world, do it. Joy isn’t just about us being happy. It is about getting that happiness out into the world and to those around us.
Find that thing that brings you fulfillment, and then find a way to do it in the service of others. Often, many people find they can meet this need by volunteering. Life doesn’t have to be all about the work we do to pay the bills.
During my career, I had a long-term vision, and that was to be able to retire early and write. I never imagined that the writing would turn into blogging, but that is where it went. It started when I was told I needed a website and author page. The goal was to bring people to my author page for the inspirational book, but it ended up being done to help others. I found that people responded to the inspirational words, not just in the books but also in the blog.
I have always found a way to pull my need to write into my various positions over the years. When I was online with this piece of me, things flowed well, and I enjoyed myself. It was when they didn’t that I became unsettled and looked for a way to change.
What you do doesn’t have to be profound for anyone but you. Once you start fulfilling your purpose, you will find yourself happier and more at peace. When this happens, the people around you experience your joy and are also happier.
You can be anything you want to be. The choice is yours. Know that it will take work and time, but it is possible. Find a way to do what brings you joy, and your job will never be unfulfilling. Yes, there will always be some mundane tasks, but when done for the greater good, they aren’t so bad.
The biggest question is, are you happy doing what you’re doing? If yes, keep on going. If, however, the answer is no, think about what would make you happy and then find a way to make a living at it.
Only you can make that choice. Never forget that you have the power to choose who you want to be.
