A Stream of Conscious Post (meaning I didn’t proof, edit or make this pretty. I simply typed what I was thinking…)

 

I have found a common thread in perpetually unhappy people. It’s the feeling of being in an unpleasant situation with no way out. They feel stuck in a job they don’t like, but it pays the bills. They are in a relationship that is not fulfilling, but they have settled and don’t think they deserve or can do better. Or they get comfortable in the dysfunction.

These are some of the same people that read an article about how to be happy, have joy, find work-life balance and laugh because they can’t understand how a person would make some of the choices that these how-to articles and books say are necessary for the positive outcome.

As a person that loves joy, this makes me sad. We all have options and at any time we can decide to move towards joy and away from unhappy. They are not always easy choices, but I haven’t seen where being unhappy is easy either.

I believe in the law of attraction and that the universe will give you what you will accept. I do believe that hard work is necessary, but if that hard work is doing something you enjoy the fact that it’s hard is just fine.

I think that there are enough ways in this world for everyone to have their own, and that it is an injustice to God and me if I try to make myself fit into a mold just to make others comfortable. I am genuinely me and I do not apologize for that.

I am always trying to be a better version of me, but never do I want to be a version of someone else. And I hope that by being me, I give those around me just a little more incentive to be true to themselves.

That is all.
