“An amazing thing happens when you get honest with yourself and start doing what you love, what makes you happy. Your life literally slows down. You stop wishing for the weekend. You stop merely looking forward to special events. You begin to live in each moment and you start feeling like a human being. You just ride the wave that is life, with this feeling of contentment and joy. You move fluidly, steadily, calm, and graceful. A veil is lifted, and a whole new perspective is born.”
This quote, and the feeling described in this quote, is something that has been resonating so deeply with me lately. After moving to a brand new place and a year of doing long distance, wishing for the weekend and merely looking forward to special events was basically what my life had come to. I noticed that, and I wasn’t happy about it, but I still didn’t do anything about it. And while the weekends are great and special events are something to look forward to, you have to be the kind of person to get excited about a Tuesday, or wearing a brand new top you love, or going for a walk in the sun on a beautiful day. Because if not, you’ll look back in a year, or 5, or 10 and realized you wished your life away. And who wants to do that?! Not me.
With my break up and the new year, I have made a lot of personal changes. I am definitely not the same person I was 3 months ago. And I am SO thankful for that. So so thankful. The changes I’ve seen in myself is something I am so proud of and I haven’t felt this happy in a very long time, and that in itself is a wonderful feeling. And don’t get me wrong, my life is not perfect. I’d make a few changes if I could. But I can’t. And so I am okay with that.
I have so many exciting things coming up in the following weeks, and while I am extremely excited for them, I am enjoying each day. I have been looking forward to going to work, and enjoying each day there. I love my co workers and we make work feel less like work and more like we’re just hanging out. I have been on a steady gym routine and I have been loving it! Not only does it keep me busy, but it makes me feel so good and healthy! I have been hanging out w friends and going out on the weekends. I am just so grateful for finally living each day as it comes, riding the wave that is life, a whole new perspective has been born. I challenge you to do the same, and watch how your life unfolds.
