You Must First Be Who You Really Are, Then Do What You Need to Do, in Order to Have What You Want – Margaret Young

The more time has passed in my life, the more I have realized there are a few necessary things for a person to do in order to live a happy life full of meaning. While happiness and purpose come more easily to some people, we all have to put in at least a little effort to feel content with our lives.

First, we must be true to ourselves. If we are continuously putting ourselves down or trying to be someone else, we will never find satisfaction and have what we want in life. While it’s important to keep striving to better ourselves, we must agree to fully care for ourselves in any scenario.

Second, we must be willing to take action and risks to find out what we can do to have a more content and satisfying life. This can mean taking on difficult tasks and jobs, meeting unfamiliar people, and going into the unknown when we could be comfortable at home. Sure, staying in a comfortable routine may seem more appealing. But this will not give us what we want if we are striving for something more.

  1. Well said April. I really like your mention about “taking risks to have a more content and satisfying life.” It’s easy to get comfortable as we age, but comfort doesn’t lead to exploration. Without exploration, our true selves remain out of reach.
