It’s Not About The “END”

Today I was reading one of the books written by Lucinda Bassett where she suggested to write about the story of reader’s past in order to deeply understand from where some insecurities and fears we face in life comes from. I started writing my story from the beginning and after several minutes recognized that I had put all my attention on describing the difficult things that occurred in my past instead of writing about the beautiful memories or the powerful ways I used in order to overcome the challenges I faced. As I started writing it I actually thought that AT THE END I will mention how I became a better version of myself and how good life is. Until that I was just writing how hard the journey was.

It is so funny that the same thing happens in our lives.

Sometimes we wait till the END to experience and enjoy the ‘happy’ part, forgetting that the happiness is not meant to be an end state.

It’s true that we can feel fulfilled and happy after accomplishing a certain goal. But the truth is that joy of reaching a goal is SHORT LIVED.

If we desperately wait till we achieve things to feel happy, then we are wasting an awful amount of time in our lives.

So what can be done?

You can inject at least one thing that makes your soul cheerful and relaxed to your daily routine. It can be something very simple as listening to a song you love or something major like going on a long distance trip. You can start by writing down several things that you really enjoy doing.

A dream is good, but without action it is DEAD.

So grab a pen and a paper right now, have a reflection and write a list of small things you enjoy doing. There can be a lot of things that you loved doing when you were young, things you forgot and stopped doing as you grow up. Bring that magic back into your life. Inject those small things to your weekly schedule. Turn them into an action plan and watch how wonderful you can make your days by mindfully selecting how and what you spend your time with.

All we have is now, don’t let any goal or a person take away your peace, dreams, skills or happiness. Nothing can really take away those things from you unless you let them. You are capable of brightening up your day and the days of those who are around you. You deserve happiness and you are a beautiful soul that can rise and shine no matter what comes your way.


It would be lovely to know those small things you enjoy doing. Feel free to share them in the comments section below.

  5. Great post! Made me think of how people wait until they retire to enjoy their life. I find that absurd because people retire in their 70’s. Shouldn’t have to wait until then to start enjoying your life. What if you dont make it to then? You have to enjoy the now but be responsible. Life is short so you have to make the best of it when and while you can! Great post my friend ❤🌻🦋
    I enjoy reading, writing, listening to music, dancing, having a glass of wine while watching a movie, traveling, spending time with my family and my pup!

    1. Ohh lovely list 💕 thanks a lot for sharing this beautiful list with me 😊 “You have to enjoy now but be responsible” you’ve said it just right!! Being responsible while enjoying life is so important. If we are not responsible, it can lead us into unnecessary issues.

      Have a wonderful day 💕
