Create a sustainable life by Sara Morgan
Around the age of 30, I realized that my life was unsustainable. I instinctually knew, even though at the time I could not verbalize, that I was not happy. I had all the things that were supposed to make me happy (beautiful kids, a loving husband, a nice house and a good, well paying job). But yet something was wrong. I was not where I wanted to be and my life was not sustainable.
At that time, I embarked on a ten year journey that has brought me to where I am today; happy and content with the life I have chosen. My life is now sustainable and even better than that, enjoyable. I can now face the daily struggles and challenges of life and instead of seeing them as problems, I see them as opportunities. The only thing that can ruin my life now is death – everything else is just an experience.
So, how did I get here you might ask? Well, it wasn’t easy and I had to make really big changes in my life, like get divorced, quit my job, move to the country. But, all the changes were worth it and I hope that I can inspire other bright and energetic people to get out of their own way and start on a path towards happiness. Create a sustainable life for yourself. It’s worth all the efforts it takes to achieve it.
