Its obvious to me that when we think about doing something, and then go through a process where we talk ourselves out of it, its very bad for our mood. We have an intention and then through fear, we stop ourselves. Just doing this one thing can wear us out and make us tired, and if it starts from an early age, we shoot ourselves in the foot, and if we continue to do this throughout the day, we wear ourselves out and get very tired.
Why do we do this? We have a heart full of intent. We have so many things that we want to do and think about, but for some reason, we decide against doing it and walking the safe path. We decide that its easier to keep doing what we’ve always done, because it may not be the right thing for us, but atleast it’s a path that you’ve already walked and you know its safe. There’s no danger of anything going wrong.
If we step back a second and actually think about where this is coming from, we realise that its baseless. In most situations, there is nothing to fear. Whether its moving on to a new career, leaving old friends to make new ones, or dropping everything to pursue your dreams, we need to do it. If we feel like its going to make us happier, we should do it to find out. We are all full of reason and we know what is good for us, so we will make mistakes until we realise what it is we like.
Life is too short not to follow your dreams, whatever they may be. We have a period of time here to do what makes us happy, so if you are happy now doing what you’re doing, congratulations, but if you are not, don’t wait another minute to change your surroundings, because you deserve it.
