This may sound crazy but sometimes in order to find your true self you have to hit rock bottom or be completely lost before you shock yourself into seeking actual discovery…
This is exactly, how I found my way to where I am now. The thing is life is not easy. Most likely, if your anything like myself trying to pay bills living the average rat race, everyday you wake up and live the say day over and over until the next day comes and then you do the same with that day. Our weekly schedules are pursistant and unruly. Never giving us a second to come up for air or even rest before bam we hit another road block that says get back on the line and keep moving your your survival will be threatened. It’s just no way, to truly live or be happy.
I spent years pushing my old business and making money and being happy with it I worked with animals and I really felt I made a difference for them. Not all my jobs were me saving one some were just money to be able to get by but I specialized in bird training and behavior. The differences I use to make in only a couple sessions with the birds and their owners were amazing. The clients would call Me and say ” If I can’t get this bird to like me, that’s it I’m done I’m finding them a new home.” With in a just a couple sessions I would be able to help a 30 yr old bird stay in its long time home or new home. Which prevented them from being pushed around from home to home until eventually the stress killed it or made them pluck their feathers out. To me back then that meant everything. It made me feel so happy to be able to do this but I still never really felt completely accomplished. Not to mention how often I would end up scared or seriously injured because no one else wanted to play with these birds the way I did, ” haha”! I tried to get the business to a full time state and I don’t know if it was the fact that as much as I wanted to do it I never fully gave it my all. I actually still do work with the birds now but as I’ve aged There comes a time when you have to say to yourself I’m tired of getting bit. I’m 33 and I’ve been getting attacked by animals for a living for since I was a kid because I wanted to save them all even if they were mean. I took in all the hardships and aggressive animals and some how always turned them into my best friends and sweet as pie. As the years went by though the scars stopped going away and my luck of the draw as to how bad the damage was, was slowly dwindling.
I also spent years going to work and focusing on everything, I had to do. Never finding, true satisfaction but just enough to survive and move forward with the next day. Which isn’t something horrible. Especially when, I had many days along the way I didn’t always think I’d make it, but one way or another, no matter my sacrifice, I always did.
It wasn’t till my mom and gram became sick and my whole world got flipped over and I almost gave up on everything that I said I was done settling for less. I went through a really hard time with my health and emotions. At the time I said “I have to change something, I just have too.”
Then after a couple months of making endless changes, I than said to myself, “If I ever got better, I was not going to waste one more second of my life on surviving or settling for less!”
So, that’s exactly what I did I changed my lifestyle and mind frame. Now here, I am! I’m not rich, and I’m not even where I want to be but I am finally on my journey there. The feeling of not settling and saying “oh well,screw it! I’m going to try instead of making 100 excuses why today is not the day I’ll succeed.”
Now, Today I’m saying to myself everyday “If, I do everything I set out to do it would be wonderful but if I don’t it has been one hell of a ride. You have to start you day saying today I’m going to get this accomplished even if its one small move towards your main goal. Every small step is one step closer to the big one. I have made great strides by not giving up on myself. Just simply telling myself today I’m going to get this done and these are my daily, weekly, monthly and even yearly goals. Last year, I called it 2017 my year of Self-Discovery and now this year 2018 has been my year to pull it all together. I decided this year anything goes and I’m going to work my butt off to make grand steps and take chances toward reaching new heights for my own personal growth and self-care.
The past few years of my life, although not perfect they have been my most thriving and I couldn’t be prouder of my accomplishments. So the point is of all the above is too never count yourself out.
Always remember, every tomorrow is a chance for you to really live if you truly want too. Today is your chance to do the same! So, if you need a break take one, if you want to change your hair, do it! If you want to quit your job, find another and when you feel secure make that jump! Maybe you hate where you live, well if that is the case make a move! Your home is suppose to be your happy and safe place. If your house is not a space, you can feel comfortable you will not find security or comfort in your life.
Whatever, it is that your body and mind is telling you. Look into your needs and make them happen for your own sense of mind and health. Just to accomplish your needs not your wants but your actual needs, will bring you such peace and change to your life. Suddenly, all the stuff that holds you back will be so much less stressful.
Make a change toward a new and exciting tomorrow, by making small steps toward your future success. Even if it means you are currently at your witts end or contemplating giving up. Maybe you already have whatever the situation, today get up and make 1 simple change in your life then tomorrow make one more! Even if you make changes on a weekly or monthly basis what ever you do just, STOP SETTLING FOR LESS!
