Last year I made a difficult decision: to get a divorce. Now, I understand this is common in our culture, but for me it was a huge choice to make. A scary one. But ever since then, I have been a million times happier. I finally know what it is like to be in a healthy, loving, and passionate relationship. The kind that betters you as a person. 

After that I began to wonder if this relationship transformation was something I could apply to other areas of my life as well. And I found out, it is! 

At both the university and the job that I am currently at I am dreading, I repeat, DREADING having to go at all. I can't get my homework done, all I do is stare at the blank screen on my laptop for a few hours until I give up. And when it comes to work, not only have I been having to force myself to get in my car every day, but I have been having panic attacks at work feeling trapped. 

There is absolutely no love or passion in my professional life right now. It is extremely unhealthy and doesn't allow me to put my best in the world and make any sort of impact. 

If you are in this situation, here is what you should do: quit what you are doing. Find something you love. 

I am about to do exactly that. I found a job that will allow me to work on the things I need creatively (like writing and art) while still allowing me to make money AND, best of all, it appeals to my passions. 

Success isn't in how prestigious your job title is, or how much you make. Yes, I understand money is important. However, if you can't sleep at night, feel trapped, or hate what you do wishing you had time for what you really want to do....sorry to break it to you, but you aren't successful. 

Happiness makes all the difference, I swear. Look at your life, find what is hurting you, dragging you down, and wasting your time and GET RID OF IT! 

Find your passion and just go and do it. Whether it is building furniture, painting, writing, medical work, studying history, gardening, ANYTHING.

Whatever you love to do is what you should be doing!
