Some people just go through the motions of life. They wake up, shower, get dressed, go to work, drive home, eat dinner, watch television and fall asleep. The next day they do it all again. On the weekends it is not much better. They just exist. For these people life is like standard ten or twelve point Times New Roman or Arial fonts. Nothing special. Regular. Routine.
If you feel your life is unspectacular, find ways to spice it up. Do not be satisfied with a dull existence. Do not push your emotions aside to get through another day. Even a negative emotion is better than living numb.
I spent a lot of time crushing my feelings and ignoring them until one day I forgot how to "feel". I was not unhappy, but I certainly was not happy. I just was. And it is not fun to just "be" with no particular purpose or passion.
To rediscover yourself takes effort. It requires personal time to reflect on what matters most to you. You will need to pay attention to your feelings, or lack of feelings about everything that happens around you. Find joy in each feeling, positive or negative, as having emotional reactions is what makes us human. Awakening a desire to achieve is not easy, but it is a much more fulfilling way to live your life.
Think of your life as a typed document. Use different sized fonts. Add color. Do not be afraid of bold type or italics. Liberally use exclamation points to highlight what excites you!!! Do not be scared of what other people think about you. Being unique is your goal. Being comfortable with your uniqueness is what will make you soar.
Have A Great Day.
