You’ve probably seen a very popular meme on Facebook which something reads along the lines of, “There is no way I was born to pay bills and then die.” Another meme says “Go to school, get a job, get married, get a mortgage, have kids, save for retirement, act normal and then repeat every day, ‘I am Free.’”


No one wants to feel worthless or be a burden on society and, of course, saving money for a “rainy day” or retirement isn’t a bad idea. However, some people feel as if what has been considered to be a “normal” way of life just isn’t for them. Sometimes, the confines of our modern day life cause us to neglect ourselves, the environment, and actually removes us from society. Is it any wonder people start to feel depressed? When we live without free time, without dreams, without an outlet for creativity, life seems to lose its purpose.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you are happy living the conventional life, good for you. However, if you want to start feeling better about life, if you would like to “unplug” from the typical matrix and change the way you look at life overall, we have some great tips for you.

If you feel that you are just “waking up,” there really is a light at the end of the tunnel. Life should be an uplifting experience, one where you don’t really want the journey to end in a two-bedroom apartment in a senior complex.

Keep reading and find out how you can unplug and what happens when you do.

You might have heard it before, but didn’t take the time to truly understand it, so here it is again: Your thoughts dictate your reality. People who believe they are old, tired, and sick usually are. How is it that people who live in extreme poverty are happier than most Americans who have everything they could want and more? It’s how they think.

If you hate your job, why not imagine yourself in a better one? Take steps to actually find that other job, of course, because it won’t happen on its own, but imagine it. Think of the difficulties as stepping stones toward growth or toward what you really want.

The truth is, whether you sit and think about how much you hate something, or you sit and think about how much you are going to like something, the effort you are providing is the same.
