It is morning, you open your eyes and you realise you are 80 years old. Time has flown away and you look behind to observe what you have done so far. Take your time and reflect: what would have you done differently, if you had the opportunity to go back? Which actions would have you done and which not? Are there any relationships that you would have broken off before?
Be honest because your happiness matters. Take the courage to leave things that bring only dissatisfaction and unhappiness to your life apart.
Would you continue living as you are doing until you are 80 years old? How do you feel while reading that question? Picture the aspects of your life that you would like to be different and think about how you would like them to be.
You will always be in time to change your life, but 80 years are quite a lot and it would be a shame to wait such a span of time before realising what makes you happy and what does not. Asking yourself tough questions about your working and personal life could be difficult and painful but it will definitely help you! Question yourself and make an effort to fill your time with value and meaning, by choosing those people and activities that make you live a full and exciting life. Trust yourself and your feelings, because none knows yourself better than you.
Would you really want to reach 80 years old having always lived with impatience and heaviness, without ever having tried other directions? Would you really want your happiness to wait for so long?
Take action now: you deserve to be happy and you are the only one who can make this become true. Be the director and actor of your life.
