Set Up a Life You Don't Need to Escape From...

I recently came across this quote and I really loved it.

"Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don't need to escape from."

So true. It hits home. I often find myself wishing that I was on vacation, wishing it was the weekend instead of the beginning of the week, wishing this month was over because I have something better planned in the future. What kind of life is that? Wishing your life away? Because you're not "happy" with the present? I don't want to be that person anymore.

Truth is: I have a wonderful life.

I have 2 amazingly perfect kids. They might drive me crazy sometimes, but I just need to stop and breathe. And realize that they are only going to be kids for so long. I really don't want to wish that away.
I have a great job. So even though it always sucks getting up early on Monday mornings, it's not bad. I've got it good. At least I'm going to a place I love with people I enjoy.

I think the key to "setting up a life you don't need to escape from" really all boils down to one thing.


And being happy with yourself and your surroundings will make you love your life.

If you aren't happy with something, change it. 

I see all over the internet people complaining over & over about the same things.  If you don't like how you look, change it. If you don't like where you live, move. If you don't like your job, find a better one. If that means you have to go back to school, then do it. If that means you have to change your hairstyle or lose some weight, do it.

*My goal for myself this week is to focus on the happiness -learn to be more positive and love my life & those around me.
