I want to talk about taking care of yourself and only doing what makes you happy. In this post I mainly want to focus on your career; do you love your job? Or do you wake up each morning thinking ‘’how do I get through today’’? Or ‘’three more days until the weekend, you can do this’’. Perhaps you go on your lunch break and wonder how you’re going to get through the next four hours until your shift is finished? If so, this post is for you.
If you read my first post you would have read that I too was brainwashed by society and thought that only a very few lucky people enjoyed their job. I thought that being an adult meant sucking it up and finding a job that pays the bills, even if doing so means that you have to give up your happiness. I cannot tell you how important it is to enjoy what you do, IT’S EVERYTHING. Over the course of a year think about how many days we work, why should we just live for the weekends? Why would we put ourselves in a situation where we hate our lives for 5 days a week and enjoy only 2 of them? THAT’S INSANE. We all need to create a life that we love. I don’t know if we only get one life but if we do why would we want to spend it doing something we hate? You need to find your passion and I’m sure most of you already know what that is, but if not then that’s fine! you will find it when the time is right. Don’t worry about what people will think or what your parents and friends will say, do what makes YOU happy.
Wake up in the morning feeling happy and excited, rather than hoping for the day to go by quickly. If you already love what you do for a living then you should be so incredibly proud of the life you have created for yourself.
So why is it so important to have a job/career that you love? For our health! that’s why! What a lot of people don’t understand is that if you force yourself to live a life you hate and have a career that makes you miserable than you will at some point in time crash and burn. Maybe it will take 3 years maybe it could take 10 years but believe me people you will one day crash and burn and wonder if it was all worth it in the end? Is money worth risking your health? It’s well known that often people who have jobs that create stress end up developing health problems including anxiety disorders, digestive problems, sleeping problems, depression, bad skin & it can ruin relationships. These are just some of the things that you can experience and once you have these issues they generally don’t go away unless you're ready to make huge changes in your life.
I once heard someone say ‘’people who have a career that they hate or a career that creates a large amount of stress end up spending all the money they saved trying to get better once they have developed all these health issues that were created from being in that job’’. I totally agree with this. This is not a subject that should be easily dismissed. Now, I’m not saying that finding and creating a career you love is easy work because sometimes it can be hard and it can take time but it’s worth it! You just need to believe in yourself and have faith that the universe has your back on this journey.
My next post will be about Manifesting and will explain how to manifest your dreams and desires. The power of manifestation is incredible. Everything on the planet is made of energy, including our thoughts. You need to tell yourself that you’re worthy of your dreams and desires but you need to truly believe this and feel this. Each thought we have creates an energy flow within and around our physical being, each thought you have informs your energy and your energy manifests into experiences. So my next post will explain how to manifest that dream job/career you believe you deserve, amongst many other things!
