Happy Friday, everyone!
I was really thinking about the topic of “settling” this week. How do we know if we are settling for mediocre or average? I feel that there is too much good in life to settle for anything less. Are you content? Do you do things that make you happy? I have an average life. I’m sober, and I contribute to society, but there’s still more I need to do.
I take action everyday in an attempt to move above and beyond the life I want for myself. By knowing I’m doing all I can to work towards these goals keep me happy. I get to do what I love to do each day, and it’s truly another blessing I’ve come across in this life, however, I’ll never stop trying to accomplish all I’ve dreamed of. Why? Because, it is possible.
