You are ALLOWED…

To enjoy the ride!

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

A very simple thought, life can truly be like a rollercoaster and we are allowed to enjoy that ride! Learn and embrace the tougher times. Be grateful for the great times and learn to enjoy the journey and trust the process.

Sometimes we forget that life is meant and allowed to be enjoyed! You’re allowed to enjoy your life, things are allowed to work out in your life, you are allowed to have dreams come true without feelings guilty about any of it.

It can be easy to get stuck in a mentality that ‘life is meant to be hard’ & then we feel guilty when things are going well, maybe we every jeopardise them subconsciously.

None the less, life is what you make it! So enjoy it while you can and if things are going well celebrate them and if things are challenging embrace them and ask yourself what is the situation trying to teach you?
