Life is the most difficult exam. Many people fail because they try to copy others, not realizing that everyone has a different question paper.
Are you 100% happy with your life, and who you are as a person right at this very moment?
I think the true secret to happiness is knowing that its an internal job. You might live somewhere less than desirable, have a "mediocre" job, maybe even have home life problems, and STILL be extremely happy. Life doesn't happen to you, it happens for you.
I once read "Don't think about what can happen in a month. Don't think about what can happen in a year. Just focus on the 24 hours in front of you and do what you can to get you closer to where you need to be."
When I read that paragraph it reminded me of my journey in becoming a hairstylist. I had always dreamed of working in a beautiful salon, in a beautiful city, surrounded by successful and like-minded women. 6 years later and here I am. Fulfilling my dream of working as a hair stylist, on Vancouver Island, surrounded by beautiful and successful women.
This industry has taught me that life isn't about finding yourself, its about creating yourself. I am so grateful for the opportunities that have been presented to me thus far. Be you. Do you. For you.
