“Adulthood is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.” – Unknown
Most of us when we hear the word “adulting” out of nowhere, it’s either we get irritated, scream inside our heads, or even breakdown because of stress.
Let me ask you, what’s causing that stress?
When you got to work on a 9-5 shift, doing the same stuff that you do every single day of your life, sometimes you got to spend till 8 pm to 10 pm because your boss demands you,
Paying the monthly bills that seem gradually increasing while your salary is still the same so you have to cut off some other expense to survive,
Or the worst part, you always feel empty and asking yourself, “Is this the life that I really wanted?”
You know what, you don’t have to be so hard on yourself.
You don’t have to be trapped on something or someone that doesn’t even serve you well.
You don’t have to live, work and waste your time for someone else while you neglect on yours.
You are not here on this world just to do that the same thing every day.
Nothing will change if we’ll be on our comfort zones forever and wait for a miracle to happen.
I’m not saying that you have to all of it right away, it’s just that you have to be aware that it is happening and you have to do something on it.
It’s better to dive in and take the risk than to live with regret later on.
If you’re ready to do something about it, I have few tips for you to get you started:
- Always feel good. – Taking deep breaths when you’re stressed always helps. Whatever your mood right now will affect the rest of your day. If you chose to feel good even when you’re in a stressful situation, everything shifts throughout the rest of your day.
- Visualize yourself. – Get yourself a vision board on the things that you want to do, you want to have, or you where you want to see yourself after a few years. You can put it on your room or in your working desk, whatever suits for you.
- Work on yourself, one step at a time. – It doesn’t have to be abrupt, every tiny step comes a long way as long as you’re committed. Challenge yourself for a week first, then assess yourself after, you will see a huge difference.
So Relax. Take a Deep Breathe. And Believe in Yourself.
I Believe in You!
