My own happiness
I know, it has been months since I have published anything, which is not okay. I go through phases where I tell myself that I will work harder to make writing a priority, but I NEVER follow through, I get busy and life takes over so I ALWAYS push writing to the back burner and make other things my priority,
I promise that I will no longer do this. I will make writing my priority because it is something I have always loved and always been passionate about. I love looking at old pieces I have written and admiring how much progress I have made over the years.
Recently, I have been reading You Are A Badass by Jen Sincera and something about this book really makes me want to push myself to do bigger and better things, which I guess is the point of a "self help book". Also, I absolutely hate that books are ever even classified in that grouping because EVERY SINGLE PERSON should have to read this book. The sooner you read it, the better. Everyone needs "self help".
I am only 100 or so pages through, but there's so many incredible passages throughout this book that I can relate to about embracing change and just not being scared to step out of your own shell. This is not a book report so I am not going to recap the book, but I highly recommend picking up a copy if you are feeling a bit lost an uninspired.
The reason I bring up this book is because in recent months I have begun to really just live my life for me, something the book encourages readers to do. I have spent most of my life looking for approval from every single person in my life. My parents, my sisters, my friends, my teachers, my boss, even my fiance, but that was not making me happy...
What makes me happy is giving my dogs 600 kisses every single day. What makes me happy is eating pizza (although I really really really wish I could live a 100% vegan lifestyle). What makes me happy is the smell of candles burning and taking long hot baths. What makes me happy is reading a book on my couch on Sunday afternoon. What makes me happy is the fact that I can make money working from home. What makes me happy is traveling. What makes me happy is watching Friends over and over and over again.
Many of these things are rather pointless things that won't spark any sort of controversy or deep disagreement, but that is the point. Start out small. Start developing your own strength to just do whatever the hell you want to do. I have seen first hand how life can be cut short at any given time, so whatever time you have, you might as well spend it doing what you want and what you love.
Also, you are never too old to grow and change for the better. Try something new, try to be a kinder and more understanding person because you never know what others may be going through,
