You know so many people are going through life feeling extremely miserable, very unhappy and non-accomplished. There’s many reasons why I believe this occurs. One primary reason in my opinion, is that folks haven’t learned how to take a Good look at who they are, what they have, and recognize and appreciate the good and beauty in what’s in front of them.
Sometimes, we get so focus on looking at what we don’t have, that we miss enjoying the good in what we do have. We can easily lose sight of what our life can really be like because we concentrate to much on what we don’t have. You know there is always someone worse off than you are, and they would love to have what you have. We can always find something to be unhappy about and we can always find room to complain about it. But strangely enough, we find it very difficult to love and appreciating our life, as is it.
Research show that at least 70% of working people hate their job. Most of them only remain on the job because they fear change, or they walking away from the income they’ve become accustomed to making. I can remember being a part of that 70%. I was getting up everyday going to a job That I hated. I was afraid to leave because the money was good. When I learn that you could put a price tag on my happiness, transitioning out of that job was the best thing that I event did. Yes my income slice 3/4 of what I was making. I had to learn a new way of living and budgeting better. My life became better because I chose happiness over money. My bills got paid and my credit score fee. Here I am now, working less hours, making less money with a 800 credit score. How does that happen. I learned to appreciate life on the Phase and stage of life that I was in.
Just to be clear, this is not only about people not being happy on their jobs. But, folks are unhappy for other reason such as their marriages aren’t fulfilling or what they expected it would be; yet they wont do anything about beautifying it, and Changing the circumstance. There are people who will associate and hang out with folks of whom they feel uncomfortable with because they fear being alone. There are others who are just unhappy about not having a social circle, yet they won’t go out or make themselves known and befriend others.
