Why Do You Do What You Do?

It’s all to familiar scenario. WHY?  Why do you do the things you do? Because it’s cool?  Because your husband or wife thinks you should?  Because that’s what your friend is doing? Because that girl on the treadmill is going faster?

OMG those jeans are so cute so I have to have them too!  OMG she got new cell phone I need one too.  He said I need to loose weight so I am going to.  She’s going fast on the treadmill at a 12 thousand % incline so I need to go that fast.  She is a smaller size so I need to loose weight….Who are you living for?  Him? Your friend?  Your neighbor who always has the newest cars?   That neighbor is probably in debt up to their eyeballs.  Your friend has a different body than you and most likely is not eating right or living healthy.  The grass is always greener.   The person you are wanting to emulate ISN’T YOU! Be you, be yourself, be an individual.  How can you stand out if you’re like everyone else?

If you live your life wanting what everyone else, has your going to spend your life never being enough.  Never having enough.  Never being good enough.  Never being satisfied in the morning when you wake up and look at … WHO?  THEM?  NO YOU!

You need to be you.  You need to loose weight for yourself, you need to workout for yourself,  you need to buy clothes for yourself, you need to live your life for yourself.  Stop caring or trying to impress everyone else. Stop wanting and getting things because someone else has it. True happiness and peace are found within. Searching for these things on the outside is a never ending journey, that is destined to fail.

If we go about life caring so much about what other people think, then who really matters (me myself and I) you get lost and caught up in doing things for others….. see where I am going with this?  DING DING DING for those of you who guessed, YES it’s a vicious cycle.

I know it’s a challenge to get into that mind set.  But as with anything in life, working out, relationships, eating right, it’s work, but it makes you a better you!

I am going to say it again because I feel it is important!  Be you, be yourself, be an individual.  How can you stand out if your like everyone else?  AND for gods sake, stop caring what everyone else thinks about you.
