The comfort of predictability often corners us into a life of rhythm a safety zone of sorts. Many of us wake up, go to work, rest at home, wait for weekend and repeat. If your life is all about surviving until Friday, your life is broken. Your new minimum requirement for life is satisfaction 24/7. You won't always be happy, feel good or even want to start the day but being satisfied with how you spend your time is important. You need to agree with yourself that you are not spinning your wheels, ever!
Time will be spent on jobs, putting others first and generally catering to the hierarchy of needs demanding your presence. Trudging through a variety of responsibilities is a part of life. But losing yourself should never be an option. We all do what must be done, we toughen up and get through the worst parts of life, we stay strong for others and protect loved ones. Tether your soul to what it needs as you plunge through the chaos. Don’t lose yourself permanently. Find time to feed your soul, it’s the only way you can be at your best for yourself and others.
Life is tough. If you can, keep your purpose close by, it will help you manage the day to day grind. The presence of purpose will help you get through the day. No exceptions, no excuses, no regrets. Overcome the ape.
