Dear Street Sage –
How do you change your life?
– Needs a New Life
Well then, very broad question. You know how you change your life? One freakin’ day at a time. It’s a good idea to know the big picture, what you want you life to be. Then every day you wake up think to yourself, ‘what can I do TODAY that can help me get to that picture?’.
Maybe you want to be a vegetarian, so today you don’t eat meat. When you wake up tomorrow you might make that same decision, or not. Either way it needs to be OK. When you wake up the day after that try not to eat meat, etc. eventually one day you will wake up and you won’t have to think about eating meat, you just won’t. But it could take some time and could be very hard to do. Don’t set yourself up for failure of life, you might fail a day here and there and that’s OK.
I think this same mentality can be helpful if you’re trying to change anything; how clean you keep your house, how often you shower, how often you work out, how much you drink or smoke weed, etc.. Waking up every day and making the right choices is a hard task. Making yourself see the positive side of things can be tiresome, yet very necessary. Smile and laugh. Truly enjoy life and the people around you. It’s all about the way of thinking. Sometimes getting out of bed is the hardest thing to do and if you can do it, then you’ve already won the first challenge of the day. Life is hard and it’s hard to change. Get through the day, that’s all you have to do.
That’s just my opinion.
