If you do not know what to do with your life, read this
Emotional exhaustion is not so rareproblem. But the decline of strength and doubt ("Is everything the right thing I do in life?", "Where do I go from here?") Is just a good reason to reconsider its priorities.
I remember when I was at university, I thought that I needed to choose a job, where I would be happy for the next 50 years of my life or even more. What a difficult task!
But the reality is that you can not know for sure that it will bring you joy all your life.You can not even know what will make youhappy in 5 years. But you understand what gives you pleasure at the moment. And, if your current situation is depressing, you need to move on. Life is to try different things and to realize who you do not want or want to become in the future.
Remember a few simple truths:
1. No one can plan his future.
Remember, you do not know what awaits you.Life is full of surprises and unexpected turns.But if you are doing what you like, it does not matter, work is for you or a hobby - it will make your journey through life much more fun.
2. Discomfort can be tolerated.
Sometimes in life something does not suit you. For example, there may not be enough money for all that you want to try.If you really want something, you will have to undergo some inconvenience on the way to achieve the goal.For example, I want my own dog sled,to participate in racing in Alaska. For this, I had to abandon my cozy clean home in the city and move to Alaska. We often face water shortages and electrical interruptions and our hut is much smaller than the previous house. But we do not concentrate on discomfort, because we live in a beautiful place and I'm on my way to fulfilling my dream.
3. Life is changeable, it is better to learn how to change with it.
Things happen. Once it seemed to me that I have everything I can dream about: a wonderful job, a magnificent house in the forest. But I was fired, I lost my house, I was hit by 40 and all this happened for one non-spot. Then it was discovered that I was pregnant. That week was outstanding. I spent a couple of days in depression, lying on the couch, but then I got a plan and I went to Alaska. Circumstances can and should be used for their own benefit.Every trouble is an opportunity for something more.
4. Delaying actions is not the best strategy.
We are not getting younger. Unfortunately, this is the truth.If you do not start using your time with sense and fulfill your dreams, by the end of your life you run the risk of being left with nothing.If you really want to achieve something seriously -it is better to start acting. The first steps are the most difficult, but it's better to tear yourself away from the Internet and get to work. You will not advance even a millimeter, just thinking about what heights you could achieve.
5. Questions will help you to understand yourself.
To give yourself a little time is a good idea. You can ask yourself really important questions. And insignificant. Understand yourself. To meditate. Make a list of what you are interested in and what you could do if you had enough time and money. Dreaming globally is difficult, but important.Calm your mind with its eternal "buts" and fantasize about it.
6. You do not have to rush into the pool with your head.
If there is work or hobby in which you are interested, try to do it on a free basis to understand if this is exactly what you want to do.Even the greatest and most courageous dreams will not help you if you neglect real actions and experiences.Sometimes it seems that we really want somethingbut once we try it, we realize that it may not be exactly what it seemed. It is very important to try, before drastically changing life in favor of doubtful prospects.
7. It is important to make savings.
If you need to move or go to a course,to fulfill your dream, it will be appropriate to start earning money. I worked for many years, so that my editorial portfolio was quite impressive for working at home. And now I have the opportunity to edit articles from my tiny hut, get paid for it and pay for them the necessary equipment and food for dogs. Would I like dogs and races to bring me income? Of course. But while I just create and train my team, that's why it's impossible. I have no experience in dog sledding, but I have a reputation as a writer. So I do one of my favorite jobs to pay for another.
8. "Yes!" To new opportunities.
The chance to change life for the better can lie under your nose, but you can simply not notice it and, accordingly, miss it. Do not miss the opportunity.Sometimes they appear at the wrong time, but you can not influence it.However, in your power to open the door - or the opportunity can go and knock at someone else.
When you are trying to figure out what to do with yourlife, remember the main thing: the lack of action is not an action in itself. Taking decisions and trying is the most important, even if in some cases you will be dissatisfied with your decisions. At the end of your life, you will not regret risking and facing setbacks. But you definitely will not be happy with what you did not try at all.
Turn off the laptop and start living.
