What do you believe to be the most important attribute to have within your adult life?
Is it love? Is it money? Is it health? Or are we going to go with overall happiness?!
We tend to have an imaginary ‘check off’ list that we try to get ‘ticked off’ as we get older. We get the great job with a high pay check, we have an amazing boyfriend/girlfriend with talk of future plans. Oh, and we seem to be free from disease (which is always a plus!)
Or are we looking to tick the ‘All of the above’ please?
What happens if you don’t have all that you wanted but are still happy? Should that matter?
I have a job. Great, but not what I had intended to do with my degree. I do enjoy being there (most of the time) but I do question whether there is more out there for me. This was not what I had intended to do. Then again, the feeling of going into something different actually scares the crap out of me. I am good at this.
I am full of health, I run regularly and keep a pretty good diet (apart from the cheeky pizza after a few beers… Whoops!)
I am not rich, but I get by. I am still able to put petrol in the car and go out for nice meals every now and then. I have a roof over my head and have food in the fridge.
I don’t have a partner but then again I don’t really intend to any time soon (unless I am swept off my feet, of course!) I don’t have much time for love and have got used to my own space. Don’t get me wrong though, if I really liked a guy and he’s willing to accept me and all that blah then it could happen.
But I am happy.
So should we have all these things intended? Or is it that our happiness out rules everything else?
Should we have partners by the time were 30? Kids to boot.
Should we have that dream job with all the cash flowing in?
Should we live forever without testing the ultimatum?!
We are all very different beings. I believe that you should fulfil your own happiness. If you are not happy with what you are doing in life, make the changes because you are the sole priority of your own life. Drama always happens; it’s as if life wants to cause a rift in your sea of happiness. But life is a test and if it were always perfect, you would not learn the lessons. So take a step back and say…
Am I happy?
