What Screws Us Up The Most In Life Is The Picture in Our Head Of What It's Supposed To Be | Wisdom Wednesday

Happy Wisdom Wednesday Friends!

I feel like never before has a Wisdom Wednesday post been more relevant to my current situation. And honestly, it almost seemed like fate to have come across it when I was searching Pinterest for ideas for this weeks post. I suppose life can be funny that way. I've said it before and I'm sure I will say it again, but as much as I write these particular posts for you guys, they also act as a sort of diary entry for me, as a way to help get over any issues I may be having in life. So I hope you guys can bear with me, as I ramble on a bit about my life at this moment.

I have written about my habit to overthink and over plan before. I've always been one to spend a lot of time, perhaps too much, in my head daydreaming about my future and what I think/want that future to look like. I've also spent a significant amount of time grovelling about the fact that nothing has ever really gone the way I had planned it to. For example, I always thought I'd find an amazing job right out of university, and that I'd have this beautiful apartment, and always be busy with fun and exciting things to do. But that is definitely not my current situation. It's quite the opposite really, I am still on the job search, living in my parents basement, and most of my Friday nights include Netflix and a box of popcorn.

And I won't lie, I am struggling coming to terms with that fact that that is what life is looking like right now. It is hard to find motivation sometimes, especially when you are constantly thinking about what your life could be like, or rather what you think your life should be like. And perhaps this little bit of wisdom is true. Perhaps one of my biggest issues is that I am too much in my own head, thinking about what could be, instead of spending my time and my focus on what is. Perhaps that's the biggest obstacle I need to overcome; learning how to accept that my life isn't going to magically change overnight to the picture I've had in my head since I was 18, because frankly, that's just not how life works. And that is okay, because the less time I spend focused on an idea of how things should go, the more time I can spend enjoying this crazy ride they call life instead. And yes I do realize how incredibly cliche and cheesy that last line was, but it's true.

Much Love,
Spenser xx
