It all comes back to liking yourself. Your “self”. The inner you. I know so many of us preach that money isn’t happiness. That’s definitely not what I’m preaching! I love money! I think money is an amazing tool and more good people need to be rich!
I think what the quote is getting at is that if it doesn’t set your soul on fire it’s an empty deed and we cant get full off of empty deeds. No matter how many of them you do.
Maybe for you it’s not about money? Maybe for you it’s not about a career or settling down and having a family.
Society will say something about a persons chosen lifestyle regardless. Interesting to note though: society isn’t looking so hot itself, and like in every other aspect of life: we shouldn’t take advice from people who don’t have what we want.
In other words: let society talk. Let others judge. You make the choices that make YOU happy, because at the end of the day no matter what, no matter where, no matter who–you have to live with yourself.
Your tribe will always find you. Even people who like ketchup on their eggs have a group (wink)
P.S. I like ketchup on my eggs! and pineapple on my pizza!!

In high school I remember we did an experiment with pancakes. The theory was that after the initial Pancake the pleasure of eating another would plateau. The pleasure would never be greater than the first pancake.
This got me thinking.
What if emotions are like this? Cause if we think about it it’s kind of related. We get excited about food. (Ok that’s a pretty general statement. I get excited about food lol). In the end it’s still an emotion. Excitement. After a while it’s just not as exciting anymore. We reach a limit. Then after we just work to reach that limit again but never surpass it.
What about happiness? Can happiness be maxed out? Can we reach a point where we no longer get “happier” but instead just maintain an ultimate level of happiness? Or do our best to return to that ultimate state of happiness?.
Or any emotion for that matter?
Sadness? The same? Can we get to a point with ourselves where the ultimate state of sadness is only maintained but never increased?
It makes sense to me. Because emotions are chemicals. I would think like any other chemicals we feed our bodies we eventually build a tolerance.
Just something I thought about. What do you think? Leave a comment below.
You never get tired of being who you naturally are; you get tired of being someone that you’re trying to be, because it’s unnatural.
Think about how you are and the things you do on a daily basis. An example is someone who likes to work out. If someone truly likes working out they don’t ever get tired of it because they enjoy it.
On the other hand if someone doesn’t like working out they have to push themselves to do it. This people get tired of because it’s something you don’t enjoy doing. You’re only doing it because of some other motive.
If you catch yourself saying out loud or to yourself that you’re tired of being “nice”, or tired of being well behaved stop and ask yourself: am I doing these things because I genuinely enjoy doing theses things or because it’s what other people expect of me?
It’s not a matter of right or wrong. It’s a matter of true or false. Know who you really are and stress will leave your life.
Positive vibes for positive minds.
