We all have one life to live. Although it may sound cliché, why waste it pleasing others and not allowing yourself to be content? Granted, there are people who are happy by pleasing others and if that is your purpose, you should keep doing so. However, if you do not know what your purpose is, take time to yourself. Learn about you, what makes you smile the most? What do you get the most joy out of? If it’s a specific hobby, learn how you can leverage that. If it is an action, leverage that too. Anything that does not give you joy, try to eliminate that from your life. That could be a person or an activity. Most recently I took a year, to get to know myself, my likes and dislikes. Although I am still learning about myself, the greatest thing I learned over the course of that year was what makes me happy. I found that I was continuing to do things and insert myself in situations that gave me great stress. I was never actually enjoying myself but dreading the moment when I should have been creating memories. I challenge you to learn something new about yourself today. Take on a new hobby, if you don’t like it, try something else that you do like. Make yourself happy so that you can have inner peace.
