Today I got to thinking about happiness - or more to the point, the lack of it and how most people aren't really trying to find it.
I think it takes a brave person not to settle. Settling is tempting and comfortable. Being content can really work. And I'm not sure if it's a crushing sense of responsibility or what's expected of us, but I've seen a lot of people cling to relationships that weren't fufilling, stick with jobs that didn't stimulate and generally choose mediocracy. And I get it, and I've done it. Everyone loves to have dates on holidays and a way to pay the bills. In a way, it makes a lot of sense.
But it's easy. And honestly, I think we need to challenge ourselves more. We need to risk the impossible, because life is too short to float along. Everything we do will ultimately come with a degree of comprise, but I think it's willing to go for it. I've always been someone that tries to operate by that philosophy, trying out different cities, jobs and relationships like an outfit that doesn't just fit right, but makes me feel fabulous.
Dream big and live bigger - what's the worst that can happen, you get everything you've ever wanted?
