Sometimes in life, we find ourselves at a dead end, or a crossroads, or on a path that seems to go nowhere and say “I don’t know what to do with my life…”
No matter what stage you are at in life, if you are unhappy with it, or unsure as to how to proceed, then you need to reevaluate.
Try to be comfortable with discomfort in life
Sometimes, life is uncomfortable. Sometimes, we don’t have enough money to do all of the things we want to do. If you have something you really want to pursue, then you must be able to live with some amount of discomfort in order to do that.
For example, I want to mush sled dogs and run the Iditarod. In order to do that, I had to give up my neat, tidy suburban home and move my family to a cabin in Alaska.
Life is uncertain, go with it
Stuff happens. I thought I had it all. I had a great job and a great house in the woods. Then I got fired, lost my house and turned 40 all in the same week. Then I found out I was pregnant. Quite the week.
I laid on the couch for a couple of days, depressed, but then we got it together, made a plan and moved to Alaska.
Take uncertainty and turn it on its head. Every bad thing is an opportunity to make something good happen.
Besides, it’s really never too late to change your life course when something goes wrong!
