I had to make a decision.
Not too long ago, I had to decide whether I was happy living the life I was living. I began to analyse every single thing in my life…my identity, my contribution to work, my loved ones, my privileges, my strengths, my weaknesses, my addictions, the list goes on.
I’m sure everyone goes through some form of ‘house-keeping’ in their lives. To know what habits to cut off because they verily impede your growth. To know which people to cut out of your life because they are using and abusing you. The real lesson to be learnt about decision-making is actually going through with your decisions.
So surely, I decided, enough is enough. I no longer wanted the purpose of my existence to be dictated by external factors.
I’ve witnessed so many people complain about how unhappy they are with their life mostly because they do not possess a certain quality or quantity, including myself.
Allow me to emphasise nothing will ever be enough especially if you place all your hope and energy on numbers.
You will be on a chase forever.
This is what I’ve learned from deciding enough is enough:
I am in total control of my life. I create my own happiness. I decide what is going to affect me and why I should let it affect me.
And now I live every single day as if it is my last day here because we all know that life is not guaranteed to us.
I make the very best of every day and I try to be the best version of myself. If I fail today, on my task to accomplish the above, then I absorb all the good and all the bad and I become grateful for each aspect I was faced with.
And let me be honest, every day will never be the same. Some days will be easy and others will be difficult but just remember that you are in control of who you truly are and everything else will fall into place.
Believe in yourself and be the difference you want to see.
