Does adult life have to be full of boredom and compromise?

No, the reason we feel this way sometimes is because we live according to other people’s expectations. We forget ourselves when we try to match society’s standards of what is right, what is success, what we should be doing…instead of remembering our childhood dreams and fantasies.

But when we make a conscious effort to focus on some of our dreams and spend less time living according to our society’s standards, I believe we can drastically improve our quality of life.

It is however a conscious choice and a daily discipline to live this way.

“Hope for a miracle. But don’t depend on one.”

Talmud

This is like the saying that goes ;

“Pray like everything depends on God and work like if everything depends on you”

To me, it means that we have put our trust in destiny, however we must put in the effort.

We reap what we sow! Help yourself and the universe will help you!

Through my efforts, I gain the serenity to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.

To live one day at a time;
Enjoy one moment at a time;
Accept the hardships as natural balance;
Taking this beautiful world as it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting in the balance;
That I may be able to see myself as happy in this life
.

(Many authors have worked on this one, I don’t know who to give the credit to)

I could try to comment this text over and over again, but the real challenge is to live by it when we are confronted with daily frustrations.
