Having seen friends enjoying travel trips ,Judy decided to spend the upcoming long weekend travelling. The idea was, enjoyment,happiness and joy, through travel .
The trip did go as planned,but Judy realized he didn’t really end up being super excited or joyful as he had envisioned , after returning from the trip , there was fatigue,but soon overcome by rest , and more so with the fact that one is back home!
Most of us at our subliminal level seek security and safety,and it is precisely the reason why we feel safe at home and homesick when away from it.
When Judy’s began to reflect his past travel trip ,he made copious notes in his journal,writing down all his experiences ,and towards the end of it,was surprised to realized,that he was not really as satisfied as he thought he would be ,which left him with more curiosity as to why.
Why ?—–This usually happens when we derive and seek results based on other’s experiences. What make others happy may not necessarily will define your happiness.Mehnaz Amjad,Life Coach
Together when I and Judy did a deep dive into what makes him really happy , what surfaced up was way too simple ,yet powerful and a big surprise !
Understanding the deeper underlying reasons for our goals ,is an important key aspect which,
- Assist you find your focus
- Know your priorities
- Paves way for a satisfied life.
If you find yourself ,struggling with myriad emotions ,which you fail to reason, making you stay stuck in the rigmarole of life , try to journal your thoughts and reflect ,you may end up finding something insightful .
