Do Ideas: Mandy de Waal- Write a Better Life
In “Write a better life” Mandy de Waal lets us in on some wisdom she has gained over the years about following your passion and making the changes that need to be made.
“If I stayed in a life I loathed I’d eventually die in ‘economy’ class- a life made small by doing what I hated.
This line truly resonates with me. I live my life by the saying ‘as soon as you resent the reason you need to get out of bed in the morning, its time for a change’ plain and simple. Life is too short to be lived unhappy. Whilst so many people mope about on Sundays to the imaginary backtrack of a lonely violin regretting with all their being that the next day is ‘Moanday’, I sit and look forward to going into the office tomorrow morning to do a job that I love surrounded by people who motivate and enthral me- Sunday blues my ass. Regardless of how much I dig my job- my point is, as Mandy puts it- Do it now. Or do it later. Do it your own way. But if you need to change your life, get it done”
Make a life where you love what you do and who you are.
