About this episode

We're all in this habit of saying "one day" or, "I'd love to do that, but -" and we confine ourselves to the bounds of the 'safer' option, not realising what we're giving up in the process. It's so easy to get caught in the routine of wake up, eat, go to work, come home, eat, sleep, wake up, etc, not only because it's what everyone else is doing so it appears normal, but also because we keep ourselves so busy and stressed that we don't even allow ourselves the opportunity to think outside the box and to entertain the idea of a different way of life. With everything happening in the world right now, I've been reflecting on this myself almost daily. How much do I actually need? What do I actually need? What makes me happy? What am I only doing out of obligation and fear? What are my dreams? How do I get there? What's stopping me? Is pursuing them actually as risky and scary as I thought or have I just been conditioned to believe that? We've all got this little voice inside of us that presents us with the idea of an alternate way of life (whatever that might look like for each of us) that we shrug off and disregard because it seems unrealistic and far-fetched. We like the safety, security and false perception of certainty that our current life provides us, so even if we long for a deeper sense of fulfilment and joy, we always go back to the 'safer' option. If coronavirus has taught us anything, it's that absolutely nothing is guaranteed (namely our income and health), so why not listen to that little voice inside of you that wants you to be happy, and do that thing you've always wanted to do but haven't out of fear?
