Let’s talk about what’s real at Fear Ordinary.
Online, we see so much “real” happiness, “real” relationships, “real” moments.
But how real are they really?
A BIG part of the reason many people are depressed today is due to social media.
Social media perceives this image of, what shall I call it? Perfection?
Everyone’s lives online is perfect, right?
Think about the stuff you post.
Are they of you having a mini break down after a long work week?
Are any of them of you arguing with your boyfriend about xyz?
Or of your kids acting up?
I didn’t think so.
The first step to truly feeling 200% comfortable in your own life..
is to stop comparing your life to others.
Back in the day, people compared their lives to their neighbors.
Today, people compare it to a complete stranger on instagram or facebook.
How crazy is that?
It’s hard not to compare your life to others but you must accept that your journey
is different from John Smith’s, so is your destiny and your gift(s).
Learn to LOVE your life by making time to do the things you love
I love to travel (so I make plans to have at least 1 big trip every year)
I love to look great (so I make time to workout and eat healthy)
I love NATURE, so I always try to be outdoors.
The above automatically makes me happy.
What makes you happy?
It also helps to plan your time spent online.
I know of people who can’t enjoy a day with their loved ones without
checking their phones CONSTANTLY
You don’t want to be online all day and night..
Not having a productive day makes you feel down
Not being present is something you will regret
Not to mention, an unproductive day is a day wasted.
Instead, go out there and make your day GREAT
And if life gets in the way, try again!!
Find your motivation
Find your drive
Your life goal
FOCUS on YOUR happiness
Not someone else’s.
Aside from the above, here are some basic things that
has been proven to make most people live a better life:
- Comfortable Income Stream
- Eat Healthy
No shit, right? haha! They are obvious and some I’ve mentioned before.
But it’s good for us to take a moment to remind ourselves.
Hope you had an amazing 4th of July weekend.
Above are some pictures from mine.
This week my focus is my happiness.
Because we all need a reminder of what’s important. 😉
Hope you enjoy my “Sunday Night Thoughts”
Happy Living! xx
