“The biggest human temptation is to settle for too little.” ~Thomas Merton
Your life is like a blank book, and you get to decide what you put in it. You may not have full control over every scenario, but you have control over your life enough to be able to decide who is excellent for you and who is so-so.
When you read a book you stay reading it because it is enticing. It makes you love the characters and the plot they are telling. Why can’t your life be like that?
You will always have bad times but what you do for those moments that are good will really define your life.
Make those good moments amazing. You should share them with people who truly love you and who you TRULY love.
Because everyone knows life is way too short to be just “skimming by”. You deserve a life full of happiness. You should have a story that is filled with what you deserve because settling won’t make you happy.
People like to think that settling is the easier route in life, but truth is, it really is the hardest route you can go.
Settling will only make you regret, question, and sometimes even hate your decisions. It will make you think you can never get away from the life you wish you never had… But the reality is, leaving that situation and finding what you deserve is possible and easier!
Never let yourself stay in a situation that makes you unhappy because you believe it is “easier”.
It’s not easier… It’s miserable, draining, complicated, heartbreaking and so many other feelings you don’t need to feel.
Life is what you make it! So don’t let your story be about how you settled and never went after what you deserved in life.
You deserve a life of happiness and greatness and a story you will want to tell for ages.
