It happens to the best of us: one day, we look around and can barely recognize the life that we’re living. Our day-to-day is monotonous, at best, and passion seems like a whimsical luxury of yesteryear. To be fair, there is a certain safety in comfort. But there is also a fine line between comfort and complacency, and if you’re nodding your head, you’ve either been there or are there right now. So, what is it going to take to give monotony the boot, and give your life a well-needed shake up?
Luckily, not too much! A lot of us get hung up on logistics when it comes to finding a solution to a problem, but in this case, I recommend taking it slowly. Like a diet or an exercise routine, inserting change into our daily routine will be easily discarded if it bears no resemblance to our present life.
Small, sustainable steps are the key to success when you’re looking for lasting change. Rarely do we need a massive overhaul! Usually, a few tweaks here or there is all it takes to breathe much needed perspective into a stale situation.
If you feel like you’re ready for something new, only you aren’t quite sure where to start, this one’s for you:
Every single day is precious. Yes, even the days when we stay in pajamas and just pay bills. If we spend our time waiting for permission or for a sign from above to start enjoying this life, we will die waiting. Or worse – we’ll live a half life where the only guarantee is regret. Please don’t allow this to happen to you.
