If you can. If you will. I want you to sit down and meditate on this following question:
Are YOU living YOUR life for you?
…. heavy question huh? No worries, take as much time as you need and let that question sink in.
This blog will be here when you return.
If the question to the answer is YES, I applaud you. Congratulations. You’re ahead of the game in some ways.
If your answer is No. Let’s talk. 😒
Don’t worry or beat yourself up for answering no. That was my answer for many years and I am still a work in progress …. this is a new way of life for me, so it’s taking some time of getting used to.
…………………. ………………… ……………
⚠ Caution and Whoa to the Philosophical Ones with the following arguments:
How can you live YOUR LIFE for YOU when you have children?
How can you live your life for you when you are married?
How can you live your life for you as a Christian? Aren’t you supposed to be living your life for Jesus?
You can never really live life for you because you are connected to others so therefore your life effects others so you can’t just live life for you.
For all the Socrates & Aristotles of the world …. I applaud your way of thinking 👏👏👏👏
Great Job! ….. but there is a simple response to your way of thinking.
Here’s a simple response: You start living YOUR life for YOU when you start taking care of self and when you make a certain decision to live life for YOU.
You have to learn to put your Happiness at the Center. Key word YOUR happiness. If your life decisions are for someone else, to appease someone else, to feel accepted by someone else …. then you definitely are not living your life for you.
You are a humble slave to living a life for others.
For those who answered No. I pose the following question: Who are you living your life for? Are you happy living your life that way?
I’m coming from a perspective of a person that battled with rejection for most of her life so she went through life appeasing and accommodating everyone else except herself so she would be accepted.
Yep. I’m talking about no other than …. Drum Roll Please : ME
I will admit. You have to sort through some stuff and find some kind of balance
If you solely base your decisions on the thoughts and approval of others you’ll never truly be happy. 😢
Everything boils down to one word:
You can decide to live for you or you can decide to live for them.
Whatever you decide should make you feel at peace within . If you have made a decision that has you internally in turmoil . .. then rethink that decision. True happiness can not co-exist with turmoil.
If you are in a place in your life when you feel conflicted I lovingly admonish you to look deep within yourself and the direction of your life and decide today to make a change and do something that goes towards your Happiness.
I write this with love.
I write this with peace.
My #Joy and My #Happiness started to come when I chose to break free of living to appease others and decided to make decisions to live for Joyfully Chrissy Lee 🌻💫

Matthew 6:33King James Version (KJV)
33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
All “these things” (mentioned above) include – Happiness and Joy 😉
