A friend of mine, Patrick Oiye, once told me…
“You must always be happy with everything and everyone in your life. If you’re unhappy with a certain part of your life, you must change that.”
I have a small confession…
I’ve kinda been unhappy about certain things in my life for a while now.
Not necessarily with the people. Honestly, the people in my life, especially now, are some of the BEST people I have ever known and I feel so fortunate for each and every single one of them. Most recently, my newly found roommate, Kaleo.
I feel especially fortunate to have met him. I know he has his doubts about how honest I am with him sometimes. Especially when it comes to whether or not I enjoy living with him…well, I will gladly admit that he is by far the best roommate I have ever had. Finally, someone who is on the same page as me on almost all levels of life. He has brought some much needed fun back into my life.
But, you see…that’s also a problem.
When pretty much the only thing I look forward to every day is being at home and spending time with my roommate (who just in a matter of three months has become my best friend), there is a definite problem. When it’s obvious to my closest friends and family that I am unhappy just based on the tone of my voice, that’s most definitely a problem. When my family is always questioning where I am and why they haven’t seen me in so long, you know something’s wrong. And, really those things are reason enough that something in my life definitely needs to change.
I said 25 was gonna be my year. The year that I finally make things happen. And, sure I made a few imprints on my path already. But, I’m 26 and it has all finally hit me…like a freight train. Actually, more like a bunch of uncontrollable tears. And, honestly I’m just tired of being unhappy. THIS will be the year that I turn EVERYTHING around. Time for me to follow through with a bunch of things I once said I would do. Time for me to start my CAREER.
