“If you knew you only had 6 months to live, what would you do differently?”
My life changed when I first heard that question. We spend our lives being who other people want us to be, fitting into a mold, and working tirelessly while making someone else rich. We become so busy and so preoccupied. We become so many things except our true selves.
So I took a step back. Actually, I took several steps back. I eliminated all the things that were causing me to drift from who I truly am. And then I traveled the world and experienced life.
I learned that the richest people in the world often don’t have happiness and the happiest people in the world often don’t have money. Sounds crazy, right?! Especially while living in a society where we’re taught that cash rules everything around us.
The last 5 years have been imperfect and turbulent. But that’s what is required for growth. Comfort is the enemy of progress and I made my life very uncomfortable until I became comfortable in my own skin and created a life I can smile about.
I’m finally making the years count rather than counting the years.
“I didn’t come here to fit into anyone’s world. I came here to create my own.
