Does your life feel like it is spinning out of control? Does it seem more like a demolition derby than the life you were hoping to live? Does it feel like others are charging into you to stop all movement in your life?
For many people life is out of control. Time is going by to swiftly. The sound of disappointment only screams louder. The cries,”When will things get better?”, echo in your mind. Other people tug at your for attention. Friends and family aren’t doing things that please you and you just want them to stop ruining your life.
The carousel spins out of control and all you can do is hold on tighter and think this isn’t how life should be. When things appear to be out of control or before they get that far, stop and ask yourself “What is it that you really want?” Take some time to evaluate what it is that you really want. Many people are getting off the carousel and designing a lifestyle that works for them. That may mean giving up some of the material items in their life and living in a simpler way. High paying jobs often come with a lot of stress. Living from paycheck to paycheck often creates a lot of stress. In the end it boils down to the choices that are being made. What choices are you making and are they leading you to the life you want to live?
