Ending This To Begin That - A Guide To Moving On

I've had a long several years.
In 2007, I experienced a lot of pain physically and was very sick.  I weighed 102 pounds and was told death was around my corner.  I fell out with all of my friends and secluded myself from everyone.  All I did was work.  Hard.  For everyone else but myself.

Are you enjoying life?

“The people who make it to the top – whether they’re musicians, or great chefs, or corporate honchos – are addicted to their calling … [they] are the ones who’d be doing whatever it is they love, even if they weren’t being paid.”

Quincy Jones

This quote is so true.  As soon as I started back to my passions, I started to smile again.  Unhappiness is work for me.  I surrendered my life back to my passions, and I'm not looking back.  I'm sure depression will try to creep up again, but, I will be prepared.

This I know for sure: happiness is your responsibility.  It cannot be placed on income, a job, school, friends, or mates.  Your internal happiness is your responsibility.  What you project outward is a reflection of who you are inside.  There may be things you need to work on - this is a good thing.  Keep setting goals, achieving them, and setting more goals.  You are here for a purpose, and that purpose cannot be actualized if you are stuck in despair.

What do you love?  Do you even know?  If not, then it's time to pause everything else, and take some time to figure out what you're passionate about.  That's a good place to begin.

Until next time,
