There was no epiphany, or moment of realization. I just felt like shit, woke up one day and was like, "Okay, enough is enough."
and then, shit started changing.
I mean, not all at once. I still have my days, but for the most part shit doesn't get to me anymore. I'm not upset over debt, my job, school, my relationship.. none of it. I have a new perspective on my life.
It was kind of like that book, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck by Mark Manson (read it).
I have effectively decided that things are going to work out. That's it. I'm not sure when, or how, or even how soon, but it'll all work itself out.
In the mean time, I am going to do more of what I love. Things that make me happy. I love winning, a lot. I found that I have the most fun when my store is winning challenges. We have to sell a certain amount in a week compared to the other stores and I love beating the challenges and sharing that excitement with my team.
I didn't realize how much I loved it until I kept doing it and kept winning. I was winning, my team was winning.. I really hadn't felt that way in a while. I just want to bring that to every aspect of my life. I wanna win. I wanna love myself, and be happy, and be healthy. That is winning to me.
So is there anything really stopping me?
Well, the short answer is no. It’s all in my head. I make a decent amount of money, I can buy the right food and be healthy, and I have the means to travel when I want. I have the time to do my school work and study, and I can make the time to take care of myself and practice better self care.
I am just now truly realizing that i am unstoppable.
So what is stopping you?
My best advice is to look around you. Look at your reflection in the mirror, your children, your bank account, your people, your life. What are all the amazing things about your life. Then ask yourself, “When is this going to be enough?” Because that’s the kicker here. It is not about what you don’t have. Or how you aren’t like that Instagram model who travels the world, or that guy who is super buff from going to the gym since he was 2.
Saying enough has everything to do with appreciating everything you have now. And while appreciating it, you still strive to be better. Not because you have to be like everyone else, but because you want to constantly grow and become a better version of yourself. Happiness is found within, and then it spreads like wildfire.
So wake up tomorrow, or the day after that, or maybe even a week from now and tell yourself, “Enough, is enough.”
