When things are not going well… Especially these days.
I have found myself wishing that in few years everything will magically work out..
Like in next 5 years..
I’d have an awesome job
My life will look like those picture perfect from Insta
I’ll have loving people all around me
I’ll work hard and enjoy harder
I’ll travel the world in a carefree way……
These are the things I wish would happen… Or maybe I belive will happen
But I sometimes wish this struggling period, of being 22 year old… Should be skipped. Because there’s so many things not going according to plan
So many rejections.. so many distractions..
Life is tough
And this is just the beginning!
Adulting can be fun for a while
But it’s a lot of work
I constantly feel a need of break these days… Going on beach for 3-4 days.. enjoying.. living life finally!
But it’s not happening.
That’s when this quote by Deepak Chopra resonated with me.
We always try to find temporary solutions to recurring problems.
Like for example if I’m not enjoying work, I’ll try to find happiness elsewhere.
But I won’t stop for a moment and think.. what is it exactly about my work that I don’t like? How would I want it to be different? What change do I need to make? How exactly can I cope with this? Do I need to do something else?
These are the questions that I need to find an answer to in order to make everything right.
You cannot escape today’s troubles by finding temporary solution and wishing things will be different in coming days.
Until and unless you think about what is the issue and how can you change your actions to get better results, the problem won’t go away.
