How to stop the struggle
There have been times in my life that I have wondered at this thing called life. Why does it have to be so hard!? No sooner have I conquered one mountain than another one looms over me! I barely have time to celebrate my victory before I have to be off again to the next climb.
Does this sound familiar? Have you been struggling from one challenge to the next? I have been giving this much thought as this is not the life that I signed up for. What I have discovered is what I am going to share with you now.
You know how when you are growing up, some idealists tell you that you should really do what you love to do? I know I got told this. Unfortunately I didn’t really know what I would love to do, so I became indoctrinated with what others thought I should be doing. And not just what I should be doing, but what I needed to be doing in order to be successful and survive at what I should be doing. Finally I found something that I did want to be doing but then I still had all of the vestiges of other people’s opinions on how I should be doing it and it seems that only now, am I really stepping out and doing what I love in the way that I love it.
At different points in my life it has all been about surviving. Doing whatever I could to make ends meet and not sink in the process. What I have learnt recently though is that what those idealists told me all those years ago is the truth. It does not matter which strategies you use or how clever you appear, if you are not happy doing what you do -you are not going to be happy. Life will be one challenge after another because you are not on solid footing or in line with yourself.
There are a number of components to doing what you love
I hope you find your path and wish you happy traveling
