Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us CROSSROADS.
The word Crossroads reminds me of Taylor Swift.
I agree with Taylor Swift 100%.
Music is a kind of therapy which can help you deal with many of those crossroads which you encounter in your life. Not just Music, your hobbies, new decisions, your forgotten old habits, new friends, new environment, new cities, new people, old scars, past experiences etc etc all may help you choose the right path amidst the crossroads of life.
Lets talk about how to deal with each crossroad situation in life.
WARNING: I am not any guru in helping people discover what’s right what’s wrong. I am just a small nobody who wants to express my views on various situations of life.
1. When we switch from our old job to a new job?
We often resist a change in our life. Maybe because we never ever want to get out of our usual comfort zones. When we get an opportunity to change our jobs very often we convince our heart by saying the offer is not worth it. The company is not worth working for. The HR was not good to me when they were interviewing etc etc. Or very often we hear that people were not satisfied with the pay they were being offerred in the new company and they refrain from moving out of the old Job.
What happens when you keep swimming in the same pond for years together?
You get bored of life as there is nothing interesting happening in your work life which further leads to office-drama
Instead why not embrace yourselves to new job. Think how much excited would it be to meet new people, new opportunities, new things happening in your life. Each day would pose a new challenge and will help you grow instead of getting stunted day by day.
2. Shifting from one country/place to another.
I am sure most of them create a lot of fuss over moving out from one place to another. It sure is such a pain.
But just imagine when thousands of people are wishing to live and enjoy life at different places you are actually getting an opportunity to move into another new place. New neighbours, New surroundings. Imagine what a peace it can bring you for your later part of your life???
3. Leaving your ex and moving on in life.
Yes its true. Not all love stories are meant to be have a happy ending… after all life is not a fairy tale. So when someone does not make it to your future why waste your days remembering all the bad memories and hurting yourself over and over. The best way to tackle this sort of situation is to embrace these ways:
Cultivate a new hobby
In this wide world which is full of many opportunities its very easy to find a group of people who are having similar interests like you.
Once you find those bunch of people, start learning new sports, start going to some music classes or maybe language classes.
These hobbies not just help you forget those bad moments but also helps you to network with some best people who may inspire you to see a fresh + different perspective of life.
2. Start concentrating on taking good care of yourself.
Its high time you have wasted thinking, crying or maybe even dying daily in the memory of your Ex Memories. Why not start taking care of yourself from now onwards.
There are plenty of options like starting to hit gym, or maybe joining some Yoga /Pilates/ Zumba class.
Trying to relax by reading some good book or going on some adventurous trip alone.
Crossroads can be for good/bad in life. But if you stop running mad and start thinking whether it is good or bad you will find an answer for yourself within your heart.
Sometimes all it takes it just a small pause button in your life to stop being consumed by the busy vortex of the world.
The answer lies inside of each one of us. So what are you waiting for? Start analyzing the crossroads of your life and move on.
