I disconnected, tuned inward, and reflected on my life. It was a powerful experience, and I wanted to share ten takeaways that may support you on your journey.
That rule book we carry around for how other people should behave so we can feel better – it doesn’t work. What if you dropped it, and let people be exactly who they are? Focus on what you can control: yourself, your response, and making the best life you can.
When you can take responsibility for your feelings, you stop having a long list of things other people need to do to make you feel good. You stop trying to control or change how they behave, and start changing what’s actually changeable – your own life.
What if I told you no matter where you are in life, happiness is available to you? We tend to think happiness is waiting for us once we get that promotion or once we’re thinner or reach a certain milestone. Then, we’ll feel better than we do now.
