Lately I find myself doing a lot of different things, loving 99% of the things I do, diving into new endeavours with loads of ambition followed by overflowing waves of enthusiasm.
Finding only to come across struggles when dealing with what feels like shrinking of the total amount of time we have per day.
In the contrary, I often read or hear people say that they have no clue what to do or what they want to do with their lives.
Or dreading the things they already do or the jobs they have.
Often hearing phrases like “I hate Mondays” or “Is it Friday yet?”
And I can’t help but remember the time where I was also dreading to go to work and feeling a sense of relief and feeling of liberation when it was friday and had the weekend off.
Doing something I always thought I wanted suddenly became something which made me feel anxious and "cringy" even.
Something I thought I wanted because it would make me happy in the future… but It didn’t.
Where here's a lesson for you,
If you don't know how to be happy now, you probably don't know how to be happy in the future.
Because the future we’re chasing after, we will not experience as the future. We will experience it as this moment.
We often tend to think that we see things as they are, but we see the world not as it is, but we see the world as we are.
And when we open our mouths to describe what we see, we actually describe ourselves our perceptions, our opinions based on our own perspective.
Because where we Stand depends on where we Sit..
So how do we find what we are searching for? How do we know what to do with our lives? How do we know that we are on the right path? How do we find happiness in this moment?
Well...there is something unique which we possess as human beings, which has a very good way of telling us whether we are on a good path or not.
It’s called “Enthusiasm”
Enthusiasm comes from the Greek word which has “theos” in its roots. Originating from the word “Theology”.
Roughly translated, Enthusiasm means the manifestation of “God” or “light” in your heart.
So from the moment that you feel enthusiastic about something, even if this thing does not fit into your logical world, like choosing to go study at a make-up academy when you have the grades and intelligence to get into a top University. You know that you are following your heart.
So when you feel enthusiastic and I mean really enthusiastic, That's your heart talking!
So go on your own unique discovery, discover and explore every little thing that makes you enthusiastic. And while you discover and explore, you will uncover that what makes your heart light up most.
once you uncover, you will feel unstoppable..., you will be unstoppable
your life will be full of wonders.
And you wake-up, open your eyes, look at the date and time and say:
“Thank God it’s Monday”
