Life is a Journey…..not a destination.

It is sad when people don’t enjoy their lives. They go to work and do many things throughout the day in their day. It is good to have a routine but so many of us get stuck in our everyday lives that we forget what makes us happy. If you aren’t happy in your life then change it. Why can’t you? You are the one that controls your destiny and your happiness. No one is going to change it for you. If you are living life as if it is a destination then you really aren’t living…..just going through the motions. Seek adventure and happiness. Try something new….doesn’t have to be drastic. Maybe a cooking class or join a intramural team. Take a Journey now and again… might find it is actually what you needed. It’s always good to see things from a new perspective.

Good Luck? Bad Luck?

Timing is everything. If it isn’t the right time to have something or to have someone walk into our lives, it won’t work out. Sometimes we want these things or these people but we aren’t ready to receive them. We think we are and we hope for things but we just aren’t ready. Sometimes we want something or think we need something and get upset when we don’t get it. I try not to get upset because I think that everything happens in it’s own time and we always get what we need when the time is right. It may not seem fair and you may feel like you will never find happiness. Maybe what you think will make you happy in the long run won’t. I believe in God and that there is a common thread out there in the universe that holds us all together and looks out for us. When something bad happens to us why do we automatically assume it was bad luck? Maybe it was good luck because if it had not happened maybe it wouldn’t have opened a door for you and you would have missed out on something or someone. What is meant to be will be. You can’t change this. It’s important to have faith and realize whether good or bad everything happens for a reason and it will eventually lead you to your happiness.

The Company You Keep….

For my first topic I am going to talk about why it is important to surround yourself with the right people. I thought that I would start out with a common sense topic that is familiar to everyone. You have heard this before, “You are only as good as the company you keep.” Well I think that this is very true. If you want to achieve success in life and conquer your goals, then you must surround yourself with people who also want to achieve success. People that are motivated and intelligent. People that want what is best for you and want to help you achieve it. I have seen it many times with my own friends. They are achieving success and then get mixed up in the wrong crowd or even choose to date beneath them. Now I am not saying that you must go to college and make a lot of money. I am simply saying that whatever your goals are you need to surround yourself with people who share those goals or are motivated. If you want to work hard at your job, but hang out with lazy people then eventually you will become lazy. I know friends that had a lot going for them but started dating the wrong type of person and it dragged them down. One must be careful who they choose to let into their life. It may sound harsh, but the fact of the matter is in life is all about connections and who you surround yourself with, the company that you keep…….
