Most people just go through life trying to sedate themselves with anything to avoid their misery. They get lost in movies, television, drinking, too much sleep. They get lost in whatever they can to let life pass them by that much quicker. For what, so they can reach the end of their lives as quickly as possible?

Why would you want to live such a life?

Why don’t you just take a moment to appreciate how much you have going in your life, no matter how small. Revel in the greatness of the smallest moment.

As the small moments add up, they get bigger and bigger.

You can begin to feel joy in your life again.

What this really comes down to is being alive.

This means doing what YOU LOVE, what makes your heart race, and what makes you want to jump out of bed. Seize the day and live your life to the fullest. Carpe Diem!

This is unique to each of us. I am not going to make any suggestion on what YOU should do with YOUR life. This is your life to create.

I think the question you have to ask yourself to truly determine if what you are doing in your life is right for you is, “Are you happy?”

Are you happy with whatever you are doing?

Only you can HONESTLY answer this question.

As in The Emperor’s Club , “At the end of the day, we are all forced to look at ourselves in the mirror to see who we really are.”

Are you who you want to be? Are you trying to go after the life you want to create?

If not, who is holding you back? Who are you blaming? What are you blaming? Is it your kids, is it your job, is it your boss?

These are all just excuses. Face up to them, and make the change. Take control of your life.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t drink or have a good time if that’s what you choose to do. What I am saying is don’t do it just as a means for escaping your life.

This is your life. Make the best of it.

I love this and would like to offer the thought, That No one person knows you better than yourself
Nor can they fill your shoes! You are the most vital artery in your journey…everything and everyone else just seasons your path!
Keep on inspiring the world!
