All my life, I have gravitated toward the things that bring me the most joy. It wasn’t about what someone else thought I should do or maybe about following the crowd; it was about what resonated with me in my soul and clicked, letting me know I was on the right path.
Anybody can work a job they despise because they feel it is the right thing to do, but are you doing it right for yourself from within?
In my observations, I have found that most of us live a life that is not satisfying to who we are in our core being but to maintain a particular façade to keep up with or help others. I’m sorry; I have to live according to what brings me the most profound joy and brightest results.
So many look back on their lives after crossing into middle age in question why they have succumbed to fear and not challenged the boundaries of their situation.
You can become anything you desire if you work hard and sacrifice to make it happen. Many are ruled by fear, and I know I’ve never been ruled by fear in my personal life. If something was in my mind that I desired strongly, I was going to make it happen regardless of my circumstances at that present time. It doesn’t have to be with someone else feels you should accomplish, as in the all too common situation of parents attempting to live vicariously through their children. If your parents were doctors and you want to own a construction company but feel pressured to go into the medical field, you will never feel right. If you attempt to enter the medical field in this situation, you might become very good at what you do, but you will never feel right at the core. I like for most of us reading this to dig deep inside and look over their lives to see what this situation was like growing up and how it affected them away from the activities that brought them true happiness.
Let us not replicate the selfish mentality that we need to pressure our children to do what we did in this life because what we did may not bring them joy. I have to thank my parents, who are now both deceased, but how they wired my subconscious mind continues successfully. I was exposed to many things in this life because of them, and it helped me to define who I am today in a rock-solid style where there is no doubt when I embark upon a new activity.
They supported me and everything I attempted to do, whether it was something I wanted to commit to or try out to see if I liked it. I’ve taken lessons to play instruments that I found out I didn’t like. There was never a problem with my parents, who dished out lots of money for me to have the experience of playing these various instruments. I’ve always loved to draw and continue to do so to this day because I have had experiences with other areas of expertise I know for years I genuinely love.
Let me tell you; it is only sometimes about pursuing the activities that make you the most because making the most money may differ from what brings you the greatest joy from within in your chosen area. Still, you should always stay connected to the very thing you love to do. You may have to work a job you don’t like right now to move away from it into an activity you would eventually do for free.
Now that I’m retired and have 24 hours to pursue my beloved endeavors, I can’t tell you how much happiness I’m experiencing currently because every day is an adventure, as I’m fully vested in this personal journey.
This type of joy is a joy that cannot be purchased in the momentum that comes from many years of pursuing your dreams and aspirations is a force of nature that no one can stop. I will say for those miserable people who are hell-bent on destroying the joy that comes from someone pursuing their goals; please get a life of your own because when you run up against the person who is living life to the fullest, what you bring as a roadblock will easily be steamrolled.
When you have this type of joyous spirit that comes from living your life to the fullest and enjoying every step of your journey, you do not concern yourself with death because you are too preoccupied with the joys of life to think about that. Those who think about their current day are unrelated and do not grasp the higher levels of this spiritual existence. Everyone gains more wisdom at their own pace, and the letter shows how much he tried to convince another that this life is a gift many will still wallow in pity, sorrow, and negativity.
You were born alone, and you will transition to the next level, and it is not your obligation past a certain point to feed into another to the point where it drains you of all happiness. To pick up the spirits of another who may need your positivity, lead by example. But do not unhinge yourself from this beautiful life experience simply because someone else wants you to pull their weight or hook their cart up to your horse without attempting to look within to what brings them true happiness.
You can only babysit someone else’s idiosyncrasies, but for so long, every moment of this life is meant to be enjoyed no matter what you are doing. Right now, I’m lying in bed inhaling this pure African air under a ceiling fan, feeling the breeze and listening to the kids enjoying their playful drum beats. I am fully aware of what is happening around me at this moment, and it is a gift that I will cherish for the rest of my life as much as the other fleeting gifts of momentary joy that come with every day of my life.
Many we’ve come across have professed the false notion that they need someone else to be happy and a good wife or husband to make them happy. It doesn’t work that way. If you are not satisfied, it’s because you were unhappy and not because of what someone else did not do for you because you don’t have someone else to make you happy.
Your journey and pursuits should bring you joy, and besides having anyone in your life who will not, you should be happy because it is your responsibility to make yourself comfortable and no one else.
So knowing this now, you have happy work to do to find out who you are and to find out what you don’t like so you don’t go into those areas again to chisel away at the things that don’t bring you the proper vibration and to hold on to the things that do. Once you understand this, you will always be in over, no matter what negativity is thrown your way, and you will always rise over the unfortunate times in this life. You will be due to certain losses because your happiness is not dependent on anything external other than you, and that’s the greatest gift in this life. Once again, I thank my parents for teaching me. This has kept me afloat through many torturous times that others have not overcome.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this article and let me know your thoughts and perspectives. I appreciate that.
