“Most people would rather be certain they’re miserable than risk being happy.” — Robert Anthony

Has this ever happened to you?

You’re hanging with your girls when one starts to complain about a bad relationship or a horrible job. When you suggest they make a change — you know, break up with her boo or switch careers — she tells you she’s too afraid to rock the boat and change her situation.

What’s that old saying? It’s better to deal with the devil you do know than the devil you don’t?

Yeah, not so much. Too often we stay in less-than-stellar situations because we’re afraid of change. Despite knowing that our current situation isn’t giving us what we need or want, we stick around because the unfamiliar is just too scary.

Well, it’s time to take a leap of faith. Happiness, fulfillment, and living the life we desire is not going to just happen; we have to go out and make it happen.

Time for you to take a chance on happiness.

Happy Thursday!

  • thanks for this…i just got a one way plane ticket yesterday for NY–leaving next week. needless to say, fam is not understanding or supportive at all, but its really not for them to “get”. i’ve been stuck in this horrible space for a year and a half and i can’t take it anymore. so i’m leaving and trying something new.

    Seven years I ago, I bought a one-way ticket to NY and no one “got me” either, or encouraged me. But I managed to work consistently (whether I liked the work or not), made great new friends, and carved out a life for myself in BK. Now I’m looking to buy a one-way for LA. Good for you for chucking conventional wisdom to go after the life you want! Proceed with faith and enjoy your new city :)
