There are certain sayings or quotes that you read or hear throughout your day that stick with you and keep popping into your mind every so often. Thanks to one of our local St. Charles companies, Dukane Corp., one of their sayings that they have posted on their board in the past for the community keeps coming to mind:
Life has no remote - get up and change it yourself
It's not a saying that needs a lot of deep thought but it does require some inner reflection. Are you dissatisfied with where your life is, where it's heading, the people that you keep company with, etc...? We oftentimes convince ourselves that outside sources will make us truly happy - our job, our spouse, our kids, our material posessions or material posessions we don't own but are convinced will make us so happy once we have it. A lot of times, we are waiting for someone or something to alter our lives for us instead of taking life by the horns and making some real changes that will improve not only our outlook on life but our true happiness and contentment with the life that we were given.
We ask that you think, really think, about what you are dissatisfied about and strive to make changes, big or small, towards making your life the way you want it. You may need help or support from your family or friends, but you are the only one that can truly make you happy.
