The cure to monotony of life

Category : Lifestyle

Somewhere along the dreary pathway of life, we encounter the inevitable disease; one that infects us and spreads inside us like cancer.

It is the dullness of life that creeps into us as we grow older and lose our purpose. Once we get past our adolescent years into our thirties, it is a downhill decline onto the inevitable mid-life crisis.

However, this only happens if we vacate the driving seat and take our place in the passenger side. Which, sadly, is what most of us do.

There are no real decisions we make once we grow older. We settle into the monotony of life simply because it possesses the illusion of safety. The logic being, that if you’re treading a well known path, you’ll avoid disaster.

We fear the unknown to no end. If your father is a doctor, has two kids, a suburban home and lives in California, then that is what you’ll most likely be as well.

The opportunity to divert your path will present itself many times but if you’re made of the stuff that most people are made out of, you will most likely reject it.

If you’re the kind that values simplicity, then you’ll come out the other end unscathed and happy. But most of us are not that type.

So, that is how you ended up here. A lifeless, repetitive world with no meaning, purpose or energy. The question now is, how do we break free?

You don’t have to jump of a roof to fulfill this criteria. The point we are trying to make is, there must be some unfulfilled wish you might have had once upon a time. Something you wanted to do, something you wanted to be.

Maybe you wanted to be an engineer and you never got the opportunity. Perhaps you wanted to write novels and you never got around to it. Maybe you wanted to paint, build, discover or invent.

It can be hard to let go of dreams in the practical world but that does not mean we have to disconnect ourselves entirely from them.

Some ideals are unachievable and recognizing reality is often helpful. However, not every goal fits into this category.

The worldview of people has become so narrow that every dream bigger than theirs is somehow considered impossible; an exercise in futility. We are here to tell you that it’s not.

People with limited vision will always try to bring you down but that should not stop you from discovering your true potential…
