If you don't love it - Change It!

I love life!  I have a great life!  I just don't understand sometimes how some people can be so grumpy and unhappy with their lives, when they are in control of it.  If you don't love it, change it!  I know that you are probably saying that it just isn't that simple.  You just can't go and change everything in your life and all of a sudden be happy! You are absolutely right!  You have to first of all make a decision, then make a plan, and
I love my sunflowers.  Oh ya the guy in the pic is pretty sweet too!
then make that plan work.

First of all making the decision to change your life - for the most part, is pretty easy.  Making the decision that you are not happy and you want to change.  Now comes the harder part.  What things about your life don't you love?  What things do you need to change to make you happy?

I know that so very many people think that money will make them happier.  And to some extent that may be true, so if you think you need more money, then what will YOU have to do, to make that happen?  Because it won't just fall in your lap.  Perhaps you need a career change, perhaps you need to cut back on your spending habits, perhaps you need to go back to school and earn a degree of some sort to create that career change.  Whatever it is, YOU need to do it.

Do you need to fix a broken relationship?  Do you need to discover who YOU really are?  Do you need to get healthy?  What is it that you need to make you happy?

Are you in an unhealthy relationship that needs to be fixed, then what are you going to do about it?  Make a plan, and put that plan into action.  Do you need to go on that self discovery journey to find out what you really want out of life?  Make a plan to do it, and carry out the plan.

Luffa Gourd!  I am gonna love making soap with you!
Know that as you move along the road, along your plan, there will most definitely be bumps and curves and things that will make you want to quit.  Things that will make you want to cave and return back to the unhappy life, perhaps because it was easier.  Don't quit, don't give in.  If you know what you want, keep at it, one step at a time, one day at a time.

I am always on a self discovery journey.  I love learning new things about myself.  I have my plan in place to help me get to where I think I want to be, and I am going through the journey.  It isn't always easy, in fact sometimes it is down right discouraging, but I keep going, and you can too.  Nobody can do this for us.  It is all up to YOU to do it for yourself.

If YOU don't love your life - Change it!  Life is just too short to not love it.

No idea where I'm going, what I'm doing. No pictures of my future life. Blankness. Tough to make a plan when you have no pictures of what life can be. Too much upheaval to even see straight.

I agree, it can be pretty crazy! Can I help in any way? Sometimes if you have someone to help draw that picture, it can make a difference. You can message me if you would like!
