Are you living for you?

people_living_life_to_the_fullest_640_97-640x393 (1).jpgWhen is the last time you sat and actually reflected on your life? When is the last time that you have given thought to whether or not you or actually doing those things that you’ve always wanted to do? Are you living the life that you’ve always dreamed about or are you living the life that someone else has imagined for you. At some point you have to start living for YOU. You have to start doing things simply because they make you happy, not just because they make someone else happy. You have to set personal goals because you want to accomplish them, not to impress other people. You have to start saying no to things that go against what you believe in or that you are just not interested in, without feeling that you owe anyone an explanation. At the end of your life will you be able to say I lived my life in a way that made me happy or will you have lived someone else’s life?

About IamPhillyPhil

I'm a true Florida Boy born and raised. I spent my elementary, middle and highschool years in the same southwest Florida town I was born in. So I decided that before 2012 was over I would move to New York City to see what else was out there and to chase my dreams. That's exactly what I did! I landed and great job with a Non-Profit youth development organization and made the move to the Big Apple. My days here so far have been full of many different adventures and I'm loving every minute of it! This blog is not only to document those adventures, but to hopefully share them as well.
