“Devote yourself to what gives you meaning.”- Morrie Swartz
I have a question for you today. Do you love what you do now?
If your answer is Yes, that is great! I am happy for you!
But if your answer is NO, then why do you do it? For whatever reasons you may have, I want you to consider deeply if it is worth sacrificing your chance to live a happier life.
I believe that God has bestowed upon each one of us talents and abilities. It is our duty to unlock, develop and utilize them. If we love something and we have the talent and the ability to do it, then we owe it to ourselves to pursue it. If we are scared to move out of our comfort zones, then we are compromising our chance to truly live a joyful life.
We only have one life. I think that the best way to live it is by doing the things that give us fulfillment, purpose, and satisfaction.
I like how Barbara Sheer put it: “Happy people have two things in common. They know exactly what they want and they feel they’re moving toward getting it. That’s what makes life feel good: when it has direction, when you are heading straight for what you love.”
In decision-making, it is not always wise to think logically. Sometimes, in order to live a happier life, we must learn to listen to what our hearts say. Remember: Where your heart is, that’s where your treasure would be! If you don’t trust me, I’m sure the internet could provide you a list of inspiring people who followed their passions and found amazing success!:)
