*throws shades on*
Happy Positive Monday to all my bossy readers out there! Despite the fact that I accidentally let Trey miss the bus this morning and had to take him to school all because I wanted my extra 10 minutes of sleep before class, today is a great day lol! I had a productive class this morning and the work day hasn’t been too bad thus far. Not only is the day good, but for me life is good right now.
My mind started wandering the other day as it often does, and I found myself reflecting on life’s blessings and shortcomings. I’m the type of person who is never satisfied, point blank. Once I reach a goal or obtain something I want, I’m constantly thinking of ways to get more or make what I have even better. When you think about it, that really is a good way to live because I don’t really have to worry about settling or becoming complacent; but at the same time, if I continue to think like this I could never be happy. It reminds me of Beyonce who we thought would never take a break from her music. But even she took a year off to travel so she wouldn’t feel over worked. It’s a neccesity.
Here I am blessed with everything I need in life and then some, but often times instead of enjoying everything I find myself stressing over what’s next and how to get there. Or better yet, I find myself stressing over the possibility that something can go wrong before it even does. In no way am I saying it’s a bad thing to be ambitious and reach for goals, but make sure you take the time to enjoy your current position in life. I’m sure there are tons of people who can relate, and it stems from wanting the best in life and not being where you want to be yet.
You’re cutting yourself short if you’re putting in the work to make your life pleasant but not taking the time to enjoy the journey. Just remember that happiness is created by you and can only be destroyed by what you allow to interfere. Work hard, play hard!
