Live Your Own Life

Viola Davis Quote

Continuing the theme from my last post, I strongly encourage people to be themselves and build your life as you would like it to be.  I came across this quote yesterday from Viola Davis that really spoke to me because for the first time I am living my life as I feel I should live it.  I followed people’s instructions on how to live a “happy” life and none of it worked for me.  Once I threw away other people’s ideas of what I should do or what I should be like, my life became exponentially better and my happiness greatly increased.


Working for someone else may have security, but working for myself has more freedom and feels more rewarding.  Going out is fun for others, but is torture for me.  I also found there is no set age to begin again.  You can make a move whenever your heart tells you it is the right time.


Discover what makes you happy.  Don’t let anyone else tell you how to live your life.  There is not one road to paradise, but you can find joy as you explore the journey to your bliss.

  1. Lovely words. Listen to your heart and your intuition. Your life is yours to live; no one else has the right to define happiness or success for you. People will try to impose their beliefs, but you have to choose to not listen.
