Wake Up and Smell The Routine

"Na, I ain't about that life." I can hear my amazing friends echoing these sweet words in my head this morning. Every day we resort to a routine. It's not okay. If you're one of the lucky ones who gets to live young and wild and free, kudos to you. Truth is, I'm mad at myself. Wanna know why? Because I feel like I'm just existing, and I know I'm not the only one out there who feels this way. I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever be okay with this feeling.

So i'm putting an end to the daily rituals and I think you should too. It's okay to want something more. Work out every day. Don't let the grind stop you from hugging your parents. Take long baths. Laugh every chance you get. Take breaks. Gaze at the stars. Drink more tea. Get lost while driving, discover new streets. Don't take life so damn seriously. Don't let anybody's short sighted views impact your own. Don't trust everyone, 95% of the time people give you advice that only benefits themselves.

Get organized and start prioritizing happiness. Take life by the horns. Create more art. Travel. Eat damn good food. Meet amazing people from all over the world and truly live. Enough to break the mold? I'm always the first person to give this advice to others. Why is it so hard to practice what you preach? 

Today I put an end to it and I think you should too. Life is too damn short. I will never allow anything to take over the way I choose to live my life if I don't agree with it. Happiness is a choice and over the next few weeks I'll be seriously sifting through what is important enough to stay in my routine and what is toxic enough to let go of.

I'll do this again and again. Every day for the rest of my life. Choose happiness. How's that for a routine?
