Day #124: Take A Jump


Are you struggling to jump out of bed and do what you need to do? Are you tired of surviving and not living? Most of your time it is that 9 to 5 thing you call a job. For some, this is longer… But what if the thing you are doing is your passion… would it really be a struggle to jump out of bed?


If you continue to tell yourself that somehow, somewhere, life is going to take care of itself. Absolutely NOTHING is going to change for the better for you. Unless you take action to do so. Life is not a rehearsal, and no one owes you anything. It’s time to start owning your life and start making better quality choices, and that begins with thinking better quality thoughts. Own your circumstances and change them. 


The most comforting thing is finding someone, even better, several people who relate to your struggle. It is so easy to sit and complain about them about everything that is wrong. I suggest that you figure out what exactly the problem is and work on changing it for YOUR own good. 


It’s going to make you feel instantly better to take out a piece of paper and plan out how you are going to make a change that will be more fulfilling to you. Or if you have some goals, or want to change this or do that, then what you need is a Push Factor! Are you sick of where you are? Then use that as a burning motivator to DO something about your situation! Your cause has to be greater than your fears!


Sleep earlier so that you can wake up well rested. I realize this is far easier said than done when you have children and a family but do your best to take care of yourself on Sunday. However you do it – make sure you have a relaxing routine Sunday evening to get your head in a rest mode before your back into the week mode.


Take a walk, speak to a colleague, get a drink of water. Do something to just blow off some steam! Connecting with another human being always helps redirect certain internal energies, especially when talking to someone you like. Grab a coffee, read the paper, you could even do some stretches. Whatever it is (even if it is quick) do something for a moment to reboot your mind.


Be truly and sincerely thankful for what you have. Each day is a new opportunity and that in itself we should be thankful for. It is sad of just how quickly we forget! Remind yourself of the blessings in your life, over and over again if you must. It’s so easy to lose sight and focus of what really, truly matters. 

Keeping in mind the above 6 points – think about how you can take a jump in your life and with the addition of adapting the above and making some new choices for yourself, that will better enable your lifestyle.
