Are You Living The Life You Want To Be Living? Here’s How To Get On Track

Following your bliss is not about seeking extremes of joy and happiness. It is about following your heart and doing what is right for you. It’s about noticing what gives you energy, and doing that thing. It’s about noticing where your energy gets sucked away, and not doing that thing.

Finding work you are truly passionate about can feel a lot like falling in love. You become infatuated, excited, and you can feel yourself changing for the better. But what happens when you get used to it? New is now familiar, and that loving feeling is not as “sparkly” as it once was. In some cases, when relationships last for this long (with a person or a career) it can be difficult to tell if you still want to be in it for the long run. Here are some signs that you’ve found the one.
