Decide. Whatever it is you want to do, just decide already.
And when you don’t know what to do, decide. Just do it. It doesn’t matter if it’s right or meant to be or your next best step. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small or somewhere in between. It doesn’t matter if it will change your life or change your day, just do it. Just decide already.
Because what’s the worst thing you can possible do to yourself?
Remain stagnant. Seriously. Don’t take action about anything. Stay where you are and live a very comfortable life. Don’t take risks. God forbid you try something new…don’t do that either. Stay in your nice stable environment and live the same year 80 times and call it a life.
That’s what you can do.
But what if I told you that you are one decision away from being completely different? What if I said that you are one choice away from doing whatever the hell you’ve always wanted to do?
Sometimes we forget that we’re adults and we can make our own decisions beyond just paying the bills. We forget that if we hate the life we’re living, we can pick up and move to do whatever. we. want.
So you want to live abroad? Okay. Go live abroad.
You want to end your long-term, unhappy relationship? Okay. Go ahead and end it.
You want to go back to school to do something you actually love? Okay. Start applying.
Why are we not doing these things? Why am I typing these words? Shouldn’t we know that we can move wherever we want? We are not trees! If you want to do something in your life, there is no better time than this exact moment. If you wait one more, you’re wasting precious time. We sometimes think we are invincible and we’ll live forever and (eventually) do all the things we want to do. But what happens when you get to the end of your life and you didn’t take that chance? You never went to that foreign country you wanted to see your whole life. You never expressed your feelings to that person your soul was yearning for when you were young. You never changed your major to do the work you actually wanted to do.
It’s one life. Sometimes we hear that so much that we become numb to this statement.
You only get ONE LIFE. Stop reading and start understanding. Start digging deeper. Start figuring out what it is that you want. What it is that your soul desires. When you’re 80 (God willing) and you’re looking back on your life, what is it that you wish you would do right now. Start living in the present and understanding that time is passing you by and inaction will be the death of your soul.
Please don’t kill your soul.
