Make Your Own Path In Life

You don’t have to follow a set path. You don’t have to fit into a predetermined life that someone else has decided for you. You need to do what makes you happy. Not what makes your parents, friends or family happy, what makes you happy. You don’t need to know what that is in your teens, in your twenties or whatever age someone expects you to have it all figured out, because it’s never too late to live life to its fullest. This is a journey, not a destination, and people grow and adapt every single day. They find new ways to be happy, new goals to set, new ways to live. So, make your own path in life. Follow it to your own happiness. Remember that this life is yours and it’s up to you what you decide to do with it.

Just Be A Person

The Lilac Road Blog Pink Black Typography Text Feeling Feelings Is Human

Westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. Happiness comes in moments. You don’t ‘achieve’ happiness. You experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. If you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. Work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. Stop trying to be a ‘happy person.’ Just be a person.
