“Today I am choosing to be magic. Enough of me pretending that I am mediocre. It is time to step into being the greatness of me. I am joy – so why aren’t I choosing to be it every day?”
These are some of the words that I woke up with ringing in my head this morning. Why aren’t I choosing to be great every day? Why am I, not every day but once in a while, choosing to be mediocre instead?
Reality is that i know that sometimes I am choosing mediocracy and unhappiness to not piss other people off. You know the number of times I have heard these words ”Why do you always have to be so happy?”. As if there was something wrong with being happy. Isn’t it funny? That the norm seems to be to choose unhappiness, stress, believing it’s hard and that there is nothing you can do about it? (I just love the way Steven Bowman describes the three lies of scarcity; 1) there is not enough, 2) it is hard and 3) there is nothing you can do about it). Indeed I think it is hilarious.
