What is the worst thing that can happen to you?

I really, really like this quote in particular from BeHappy. They sell and ship really cool canvas prints globally – you can click on the image below to go to their site. (image credit : behappy.me)

The worst thing that can happen to you is allowing yourself to die inside while you’re still alive.

You can intepret this in whichever manner you want, and perhaps in some ways you can identify with this quote. Is any part of you dying inside right now?

Many people choose to ignore it. Many people are prisoners of their own circumstances. Many people are too fearful of change. If you are forced to “die inside” because you truly have no choice, then I’m sorry for you. I hope that you will be able to turn the tide one day.

Regardless of whether it is related to financial matters or not, I hope that you will not be “dying inside” right now. I do not wish this on anyone as it is one of the worst things in the world to me.

I’m lucky enough to be able to do something about my situation. In terms of employment, specifically. After recognizing where my only road is leading to, I decided to hack a path for myself. In an incredibly long process that has taken a grand total 115 days (record-breaking for me as the waiting is a sheer test of will and self-belief, but I’m sure some of you have had it worse), today will be the final step to take as I end my current journey, and embark on a new one.

The melting pot of feelings and emotions can be rather conflicting. Acceptance. Excitement. Desire. Anxiety. Happiness. Fear. Peacefulness.

But hey, whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? Wish me luck.
