Daily Prompt: “And they lived happily ever after.” Think about this line for a few minutes. Are you living happily ever after? If not, what will it take for you to get there?
If I think about my life from somebody else’s point of view then my life is pretty damn good; I have a wonderful family that I actually get along with, an amazing boyfriend and best friend, I do well at school, I go to church and I have a job. I know how amazingly lucky I am and that isn’t what I’m saying. But it seems to be that I am not happy all the time, even when I have every reason to be.
I think what has happened to me is that I am stuck in a rut; a routine in which I get up, go to school, come home, do my homework, eat, watch TV and go to bed, Monday to Friday and get up, watch TV, go to work, come home, eat, watch TV and go to bed, Saturday and Sunday. This, as you can imagine, is not very exciting; boring in fact and that is not a good thing for a teenager to be saying.
School and work seem to play quite a big part in this, and my attitudes towards both at the moment aren’t great. I seem to have lost some of my motivation that I know I need to get back. So to answer the question of what will it take to get me to my ‘happily ever after’ is hopefully after getting my results back next Thursday (eek!) my motivation will return. Or maybe further into the future when I finish school, although I doubt that because when I go to university I’m going to be a nervous wreck! I hope the answer to the question is simply a matter of me appreciating what I have and doing something to get me out of my rut, the exact reason why I started blogging again!
