Last night I was reading a book about the different ways we view the obstacles in our lives. The author stated that people have to decide either to get stuck or keep moving forward. So why do we decide focus on the problem when we can find a solution?
After everything happened with my last job I moved back home with my family. It’s been an experience to live at home again because it’s hard to go from not having rules to having them again. I respect the fact that it’s not my house, and they have expectations of me. At the same time I miss having my furniture, my space, and my freedom. I’ve adjusted to my new living situation, but now I’m wanting to move again and have my own place.
Reading that chapter last night made me think about how I’ve been looking at my living situation. I love being independent and out on my own, but all I’ve been doing lately is thinking about how I want to move instead of planning on doing it. In a way I’ve become comfortable in a situation that’s also an issue for my personal growth, and now I need to stop being comfortable and keep moving.
We are constantly going to have problems to deal because they are a natural part of life. The thing is that we can’t settle for a life full of drama when we have the ability to make things better for ourselves. It’s ultimately our choice to either plan to move past our problems or dwell in them.
