If you're one of those that has a hard time getting out of bed in the morning and the only thing that pushes you out are your responsibilities, I can imagine you feel it's time to re-evaluate things.
Maybe you're going through a phase in your life where it's hard to see the silver lining. Maybe you want life to change, you just don't know how.
For some, waking up after a night of dreaming is hard, as if they traveled all night and went to another place, only to wake up still being haunted by the dreams, or waking up to their reality.
Sometimes the realities they are waking up to aren't even bad, they just, for whatever reason, wake up feeling unhappy.
For whatever reason, here are some tips to jumpstart your ability to feel the happiness you seek.
Stress, overwhelm, overburden, tension, anxiety... Here are three of the most common indicators that the reason you feel overwhelmed and stressed is because your life and purpose aren’t matching up.
To feel like you are living the person you want to be in each role of your life it's important to know who that person is. Then, you live, breathe, move, talk, and act from that image. Which is why we do this exercise called your "Personal Avatar". It's the image of who you see yourself to be.
If you are constantly only giving to the needs and wants of others, what you have to offer the world can very quickly be misconstrued and forgotten because all of your time, effort, and energy is taken up, leaving no time to fulfill your greatest purposes. If you represent yourself inaccurately in order to take care of others' WANTS, sooner or later that very person with whom you have created the desired relationship will discover that you misrepresented yourself, and one or both of you end up feeling bad.
What we WANT and what is REALITY is a vast difference. What we THOUGHT marriage would be like and what it is are two different things. The job we have and the purpose we WANT to have feel far between.
There could be a whole city named after this gap because it’s a realm many people live in for a LONG time!
Interestingly, the vast majority of professionals believe anxiety is TRAUMA ANXIETY. When in fact it seems the greater majority of sufferers are LEARNED ANXIETY. That is a big difference, and it's imperative that we do not blanket them together as the same.
Feeling a lack of 'satisfaction' just means that you haven't had a plan for your own happiness and have not created a life in which your satisfaction is paramount.
Feeling 'satisfaction' means you have an acknowledgement of the gratitude you feel through the sense of peace and contentedness you feel. When it comes down to it, it's not about our circumstances, our situations, or what we own. It's about how we FEEL, and I think we all want to feel happy and joyful. Satisfaction is the feeling you have while enjoying the things you have created in your life. Feeling 'satisfaction' is the manifestion that happens when you have decided to value your happiness and have made a plan to spend your time in it.
