Starting today, I am changing the way I live

Are you happy? And I mean truly, sincerely, genuinely happy. Do you like your job? Are your friends treating you well? Have you accomplished any of your goals? Achieved your dreams?

If you answered no to any of these questions, then you need to change your life.

What’s the point of living if you’re not making every effort to be the happiest you can possibly be? I understand that it takes time to accomplish goals and/or achieve your dreams, but are you making a conscious effort to do so? We all get caught up in the constant motions of life, and we forget to actually live the life we want to live.

Take my life for example. I’m 21 years old, and I have already devoted a huge part of my life to working. “But Julia, that’s wonderful! You’re getting a head start. You have a good job. You’re doing great,”  is what you may be thinking. While all of that may be true, I realized that I have lost who I am, what I want to do, and how I want to live. I have lived every day thinking that I am happy, but am I? Or am I just content?

I have stopped chasing my dreams, and I have stopped doing what I love. I lost sight about what I want my life to be, and I have settled for what it is. Mediocre.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my life, I know I’m blessed, and I really don’t have any complaints. However, I believe that it can be better. I don’t think that I’m living life to the fullest, and that disheartens me. I want to spend my life doing what I love, and that is exactly what I am going to do.

I want to be that person who absolutely loves her job. I want to go in every single day eager to work, and I know that is something that won’t come easy. I know that I will have to work for it. I know that I will have to do things I have never done before and push myself in ways that I never have before. I know that people will disagree with me, and they will try to talk me out of it, but I know what is best for me.

I have lost my thirst to actually live my life, and I am determined to get it back. You should too.
