Allowing Yourself To Leave A Smoky Room

A “smoky” room is not for you. You are better than living in an environment where you cannot grow. Your purpose in your life is to grow. Your purpose is to live your life in your own way. If you are not living it, do something about it. The first place to start is to live your smoky room. Leave your comfortable room. Don’t stay there if you are not comfortable with yourself anymore. Don’t pretend. Don’t deceive yourself. It hurts to live in a place where there is no growth.

If you don’t leave, you are holding yourself back. If you don’t leave your smoky room, you are limiting your growth. If you don’t leave your smoky room, a place where there is no life, you are just existing. If you don’t leave your smoky room, know this: The quality of your life will be determined by your smoky room. Change is hard, but important. If you don’t change your smoky room now, when are you going to start living your true life? You can’t live it if you don’t change your smoky room.

Food for your life:

“If the room is smoky, if only moderately, I will stay; If there is too much smoke I will go. Remember this, the door is always open.” Epitectus

The Best Gift You Can Give Yourself

It is easier to be someone you are not than to be your real self. You can’t be your real self if you are not true to yourself. You can’t connect with your real self if you don’t know yourself. Don’t hide who you are. Be proud of who you really are. Don’t waste your time trying to be something different. The more you do that, the more you are moving away from your real self. To connect with your inner self, you must be yourself.

It is easier to get what you want if you know yourself. If you don’t know yourself, if you are not true to yourself, if you are not your real self, you can’t pursue your dreams. Even if you pretend to do something to better your life, you will end doing the wrong thing. According to Margaret Young, “… you must first be who you really are, then, do what you need to do, in order to have what you want.” In order to get what you have been fighting for, you must first be who you really are. If not, you are in for a long walk.
