Do you know what the thing about life is? Like – the actual honest to god truth of it all? I’ll let you in on my little secret for a happy life:
Sometimes you just gotta break something to live it to the best of your abilities.
It doesn’t really matter whether it’s habits or promises. Chains or the law. Whether you’re breaking hearts or noses, the bank or the silence. Maybe you’ll find yourself breaking some rules or that fancy china your great great aunt from nanas side of the family gave you. You might see yourself breaking down doors or breaking through a glass ceiling. Or you might just break even or even down every once in a while.
Inescapably and inexplicably – some shards will always be required to pave your particular yellow brick road to break down the gates to paradise unknown.
But breaking doesn’t equal broken if you don’t let it. Breaking doesn’t always force you to pull the brakes. Breaking just offers up a new chance at respite, recognition or redemption. An opportunity to rise, to become better, to improve. A possibility for change, transformation or growth. A new way to break the mold and break free of expectations.
So if you want to find happiness for real? Break big decisions up in smaller chunks that are manageable to break off into easy wins. Break with tradition every once in a while and be sure to give yourself a break. Break out the bubbly and break ground on a new you!
Just be careful not to break wind while you’re at it…although…the big friendly giant said it first: better out than in!
