Lately I have been thinking a lot about life – specifically living the best life possible.
Much of living the best life possible comes down to the decisions that we make on an everyday basis. We control our lives. We control our happiness. And we control changing things if we aren’t happy.
And sometimes “changing things” can mean making hard decisions.
When I talk to a friend that is sad or in a lull, I always ask them the same thing, “are you living the life that makes you the best person you can possibly be?”
Usually if I am having this conversation with them, the answer is “no”.
I have found that usually the areas we are discussing revolve around three things – Jobs, relationships and ourselves. And I always offer the same advice for each.
If you are unhappy with your job, you should look into ways you can make your job work better for you. And if your job doesn’t work for you anymore, you should think about another path you could take.
If you are unhappy with your relationships, strive to make new ones or let old ones go (I wrote about this specific item earlier this year)
If you are unhappy with yourself, do something that makes YOU happy.
Strive to live your BEST life. Strive to live a life that makes you the BEST version of yourself.
Sometimes the route to making positive changes can be extremely hard, and sometimes feel negative. Trust me, I know.
But I ask you to keep your eye on the prize. And the prize is your happiness. Which in my opinion is one of the best prizes of all :)
Have you ever made a hard decision because it would give you a happier life?
What advice do you tell friends or family members that are going through a hard time?
