Many of us have been sold the idea that life should be rainbows, happiness and ease.

Yet it isn’t.

But because we believe life should be something other than what it is, we feel like there is something wrong with us.

Do you relate?

We think we should feel happy all the time and that when we don’t feel happy there is something ‘wrong’.

We look for this happiness in a job, a marriage, a house, car, holiday, bank balance, bottle of wine, in the fridge, somewhere out there! I did this for years, and years. I know I am not the only one.

We have created for ourselves a fiction – a story – that life is meant to be all rainbows and unicorns. 

This story is what keeps so many of us stuck.

We picked the wrong universe if ease and happiness is all that we are after.

Living this way means you never honour your dreams. Because dreams require something of us, they test us, they call us to show up, fail, get up and go again. To learn. To grow. To evolve. 

What if from this moment on you decided that happiness was not the ultimate aim?

You can write a new story, and make it about having a fulfilled life. One where you get your hands dirty, take risks and go to bed each night having truly lived life that day and every day. 

To feel fulfilled, to feel like there is purpose to this life you have, to create the life you really want for yourself – requires a willingness to feel the discomfort that comes with any dream – and to do the work anyway.

You have got this.

Let’s get to work.
