Quality of life… that elusive little slice of heaven we’re all pining for.
I’ve heard it said that taking the easy road gets progressively harder, while taking the hard road gets progressively easier.
I’ve been finding this to be true in my own life.
Enduring the varying quality of life levels during these journeys is the hardest part of all however. Perseverance can be a real prick, you know? Things will always ebb, and things will always flow. But, if your quality of life is currently compromised through choices you’ve made, you only have yourself to blame.
Your getting there (in most cases), and staying there, are definitely choices. Letting others convince you otherwise is only choking your chances at real, lasting change. Choose something else; make a shift; go down a different road. No amount of money, prestige, power, pill, or any other temporary pleasure is worth a chronic lack of life quality.
