It’s true when they say we only get to live once. Through the whole process of all the trial and error. Errors either we’ll grow through or see best selves fade by dwelling within purposelessness. It is half way through our lives that we get to live the life we wanted as kids, if we are ever lucky to realize that that is. But most of the time we are busy living a life for approvals sake, the “safe” life and the determined. So yeah, we get to live only once and still we follow a path that’s far from our desire. We decide not to decide which is a decision by itself, a dangerous one. So if you are in a position where you are feeling nostalgic within your mind, not able to decide which way to go, what your calling is, then the following simple questions gathered from many blogs, personal experiences and professional suggestions, will help you spot what you have always been desiring. While the rest is up to you. To start making the best out of your one life or to just spend it out, to stay safe?
That is the question.
confronting yourself is a huge deal, as ignorance is a technique we all use. Ignorance of our stance, our values or our desires. it’s easier to ignore all than to give all the whys sometime to sink in. Because truth be told, after it’s said and done, we know something has got to change. once we dare to confront the mind, it will not settle for anything less. less being the undesired yet approved path we walk by, less being the grass we water across our fences.
So ask yourself some of these questions when you feel stuck.
