"Living my life like it's Golden!"

 

 

Do you enjoy your life?  Do you know what it feels like to Fully Enjoy each and every moment? 

I'm going to be honest with you, for a very long period of time I didn't even know what it meant to "enjoy life". Listen, I didn't even know that I wasn't enjoying it-

At 26 years old, I allowed myself to be confined by "what ifs". I talked myself out of doing mostly everything that I enjoyed by calculating the pro's and cons, listening to and internalizing other people's limitations for my life... I gave my "advisors" authority to decide what I should or shouldn't do.

I started to feel confused, confronted and incomplete. I tried to make myself believe that my life was great and that I was happy. But deep down inside I knew, not only was I unhappy, I couldn't recall ever knowing what happiness felt like. Even though I smiled, often times I felt like crying. In addition, I never acknowledged how I was really feeling.  

I hated my job and my personal life. I felt lonely and outcast. I didn't feel loved. I was bored and sick all. the. time. I was always the victim. As you can imagine, I was not having any fun and was jealous of people who appeared to have a better life than I. Ugh! That's not living!

It took some powerful intervention, good friends and personal commitment for me to eventually learn that I was responsible for my happiness (or unhappiness). Now I know that no one else has the power to dictate what living looks like for me because that power is mine. I choose. I find freedom in knowing these things. Now, I refuse to be a victim and I fight for my life! I fight for my happiness!

So, just as I was asked almost 7 years ago- 

Without making any considerations or limitations-What makes you happy? THINK BIG! It doesn't have to "make sense". What is it that makes you feel free?? Go.DO. IT! Make a small step towards it. Go out and "treat yo'self" to something you love. Trust me, you will be glad you did!
