I’ve heard too many people make this statement, “It’s better to stick with the devil you know…” I can’t stress enough how it pains me to hear or read this statement. What an awful admission of giving up, giving in, admitting defeat etc. When you stick with the devil you know, you have made a decision to give up on your happiness, your dreams and living a fulfilling life. Why would anyone make this choice willingly? People make this choice because they are either afraid of happiness because it will create change or feel that they do not deserve happiness.
The toughest challenge in life is to honestly “face” yourself. I was afraid of change but I finally became tired of the way things were and began to embrace change. Here is a better statement, “If you do what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always gotten.” Without change you will not grow; without growth you will never reach your full potential; if you never reach your full potential your life will have been in vain.
Today I challenge you to look within, determine what will create bountiful happiness in your life and take small steps to achieve your happiness. YOU deserve to be happy, YOU deserve balance, YOU deserve to give and receive love, YOU deserve to be authentically who you are without fear of not being accepted and YOU deserve to leave your positive imprint in our world.
Once you believe happiness is possible, pay it forward and help motivate someone else; this will further increase your happiness. YOU can do this! If you get stuck along the way remember you are NEVER alone; reach out and the hand you NEED will help you continue your journey.
Wishing you great Love, Peace & Blessings…
