How happy are you, really?

How happy are you, really? Are you contented with what you have now? Or you tend to get the most out of life, though there's always some room of happiness to be squeezed.

What I can say is you'll never have enough of everything. You'll always want to have more. At this very moment, you might have this urge to try something new but eventually, there will be a point where you will be asking if that's what you really want for yourself. A point where you will reflect your choices made and ask yourself if there's any regrets or not. I guess worrying about the future makes everyone scared. We will never know what is coming and this occasional wondering will always pop out of nowhere.

Finding the meaning and happiness in life is something you have to do for yourself. Not for others. Now is the time where you must be true to yourself. Ask yourself if you really want this for yourself. Is this the path you've always been dreaming of? Are you being honest to yourself? Is it the heart that's been telling you to do so rather than what others have been advising you to do?

I'm not saying you shouldn't be listening to people's advices. You want to make the right choice, make the right decision but then there are other temptations that are hard to resist. If you feel that it's the right road for you to take, then just do it. The important thing here is what your heart tells you to do, not what the rest are telling you to do. Ask yourself if you are drifting with the tides. Ask yourself if you are the rock, having your own stand. Stand up for what you think it's right for you. Otherwise, you will be living someone's else dream rather than yours.

It's easy to ask these questions but when you are actually involved in such a scenario, emotions always override everything. Think rationally. Think about the pros and cons. Think if this is really what your heart wants. I know I've said this a couple of times here and I know it's not an easy thing to do. It's always easier to make an observation as a third party. But whatever it is, I'll be right by your side, supporting you all the way.

All you need to do now is just go to a mirror and see what that face has to say. That's the one you must please. You don't have to mind all the rest.
