I don’t know about the rest of you, but this week has been hard! What I admire most is those who are going through some difficult times, but still push through to do what they love best (big shout out to Ray Ferrer here!).
Here’s a little bit of inspiration to motivate the rest of us.
Every moment you lose is time you could have used to find happiness: within yourself and to realise that you’re using your time to do something productive. I don’t mean that we should always be trying to do something spontaneous and meaningful, as adults we more often than not spending most of our time working. What I mean is this: when you get to your 80s, how would you feel if you were looking at your life in the now? Are you happy with what you’ve achieved? Are you happy?
If the answer is no, it’s time to make a change. What do you want to do? What do you feel will make you happier? What is preventing you from getting there? Sometimes it’s the smallest of changes that can make the biggest difference.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither are life changing events that can bring about happiness and a better feeling about your life. Take baby steps, make small achievements that get you to where you want to be.
It’s not always easy when you’re stuck in a routine of waking up, going to work, coming home and doing the chores. As much as I love the 4 fitness classes I attend a week (need to try and get back into capoeira too, oops!), it can sometimes be quite tiring when you never feel like you’ve got a break.
It’s been that way since we came back from Christmas holidays and hogmanay: my life has been a whirlwind of wedding planning, work, classes and spending time with family and friends. Not that it’s a bad thing to have lots of activities to do, but as an introvert I like to have some time to myself during the week to recoup.
I’ll be speaking more about this in a later blog post, so stay tuned!
