What makes you sick and tired? Can that thing be the catalyst you need to cut through life’s clutter to find where you need to be? Depending on your age you might be familiar with the old School House Rock episode of Mother Necessity. People trying to correct a problem sparked many of the greatest inventions in our country. Sometimes being sick and tired of our current situation is the spark we need to begin the journey to our IDEAL life.
Don’t be frustrated and give up, be frustrated and find a solution.
In my book, I talk about Rosa Parks. Rosa Parks became the catalyst of the Civil Rights Movement because she was tired—not just physically, but tired of the oppression her people had endured. “People always say that I didn’t give up my seat because I was tired, but that isn’t true,” she said. “I was not tired physically, or no more tired than I usually was at the end of a working day. I was not old, although some people have an image of me as being old then. I was 42. No, the only tired I was, was tired of giving in.”
If you are not satisfied with your life, if you are sick and tired I challenge you to do something about it. Don’t just accept the status quo. Change it and live your IDEAL life.
This holiday season I am sharing 12 short holiday posts to help you and yours get through this season with a little bit of joy and happiness intact. Many find the holiday season warm and inviting, but others get caught up in the hype of the season and even fall into the envy trap of comparing our lives to the lives of others. I would encourage you to create your own traditions and norms this time of the year. Don’t worry if the activities of your family or friends don’t match those of others. Be happy and define what works for you and yours.
