Aiming for a Good Life

 My two friends were recently unemployed and while one has since found a job, the other has yet to find one. But to her, it's simply not trying to find a job that will help pay the bills, but a job that will satisfy her and feed her soul. Who wants to work in a job where the boss is practically screaming at you every time you do very very very minor mistakes and get agitated every now and then because her expectations are just getting too high. I know, super annoying and that's what I am going through right now. Eurgh.

That's why I'm taking baby steps in wanting to achieve a good life. Many of those successful people, including the big shots and those girls who practically carved our a career for themselves worked super hard before getting to where they are now. Sure, it's not all easy breezy for them yet up to where they are now and they continually to work hard simply because their heart and soul are in it. It's not like someone forces them at gunpoint. 

It's not easy and it's also a constant reminder to myself that I have to get up and do the things that I want to do if I ever want to achieve the goals in life. Still, at the end of the day, we're still human beings who need time to rest and recuperate not because we're lazy but because we have to gear ourselves up for something better. 

Recently, I've read two articles, one on a famous person in Singapore who has always made it a point to exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle but unfortunately, stress got to him and he's in stage 4 of cancer. Another article I read mentioned that stress is one of the key factors in the activation of cancer cells in our body. Yes, we all have to work hard whether for ourselves or for our family, but for the sake of continued living in good health and good life, we have to also take it easy. 

So now, I believe a good life is a life where we're pretty much satisfied with what we have achieved in life, experiencing financial freedom and also being closer to God. If our idea of a good life is having a family of our own with chidren and a loving husband or wife who love us unconditionally, then it's time to make it happen by being more open minded and more sociable. If our idea is to experience financial freedom, then take the steps to pay off any debts, cut down unnecessary expenses and making additional income. Take further upgrading classes to improve our skills in life, be more loving and caring and most importantly, love ourselves too by not underestimating ourselves because we are capable of doing better than we already are.

Here's to a good life!
