Do you make your own rules?

Updated: Sep 2, 2019

In life, there are no rules.

Well, there are some; there are the rules that govern our societies, that keep us safe and make sure that business is done in a fair way. But I'm not talking about those kind of rules.

What I'm taking about are the rules that dictate who we are and what we do with our lives.

We are all influenced by society, even if we don't realise it, we are encouraged to work hard, get a ‘safe’ job, save money, grow up, get married, fit in, buy more stuff, etc...

When was the last time you questioned these rules?

We begin to write our stories each day from the moment we wake up with the actions we take and the attitudes we choose. The key here is that they are a choice. There is nobody you need to be and nothing you need to do.

You can find your own path and go on your own adventure.

Are you willing to make you own rules?

Let me know the ways you're living your life on your own terms.

Thanks for your comments Angus! It's great to hear that you are questioning the rules.

What do you think makes people not understand the decision to play less safe? I think one reason a person might not understand is out of fear. We can get very used to living in our comfort zone, it feels safe and reliable. It takes courage to step out of it especially for the first time when you might not even be able to imagine the joy that lives on the other side.

It must be hard to balance what you want with what people imagined of you.

I find myself questioning the preconceived rules you mentioned above daily Claire! It frightens me that they have become so normal/ingrained to society, that most do not know how to step outside of the boundaries that have been created, without even knowing what is on the other side. Routine/comfort can be wonderful, and on the other side it can be crippling.

I agree wholeheartedly that it is a choice, for most of us here in the West. We have been fortunate enough to be dealt a hand of cards that give us the freedom to choose our path, try new things, travel, save, experience, adventure. Whether we admit this fortune or not is a choice.

To answer your question, yes,…
