To Live Differently – Do Something Differently
This is true. I know for a fact that in order to follow our dreams, it's necessary to step outside the "box" in a sense of living beyond fear, worry, whatever goes on in the mind deterring self from attaining that which we feel a deep sense to accomplish.
When you do nothing to even try to accomplish your dreams, what can you expect to happen. When you keep wishing and wanting for something making no real effort, what can you expect but to live the same way you've been living. This is also true of happiness. You want to be happy don't you. Well, what are you doing to bring about more happiness in your life. How are you living different than before, what new things... what peace or simple joyous anecdotes have you brought into your life recently. If you have no answer to this, obviously you can see why you have yet to feel "happier" about existence.
Try to change one thing about your day... giving yourself a break to do what you want to do, instituting simple pleasures in your life easing them into your daily existence. Take time to watch the sunrise and notice how it makes you feel to wake on spring or summer's delightful morning. Sip and savor that cup of tea enjoying the most awe-inspiring view. Find yourself a quiet place to read that favorite book or listen to that music that gets you moving and dance! ... Just dance... Have fun...
Think about all the things you are grateful for.
To live differently, remember we must do something differently. We must change our lifestyle to correlate with the emotions of positive change. If you want to write that book, what's stopping you... but that mountain of regrets if deep down you could do nothing else but write. What's stopping you from painting that picture, becoming that artist you've always wanted to be. We mustn't think we have to achieve in the eyes of a world for notoriety's sake or otherwise, you mustn't think of any rationale as to how you could ever live a dream. Even one step... one chapter at a time... a visit to get art supplies... a stroll along the beach feeling those tranquil moments...
It's about living a life of peace, satisfaction and enjoyment.
It's about living life with your own definition of happiness.
Living without regrets, living without the validation except by means of your own hand.
