There comes a time in your life where you realize that you, yes you, are too valuable. You are too good to be abused - emotionally and/or mentally. That your time is too precious and should not be wasted by unnecessary situations that cause a stressful lifestyle. If you are at this point, then take a deep breathe and release all that negative energy. You have now reached a point in your life where you are now living for YOU.
Getting older should not be a scary thing in life, it should be a true celebration of how much you've achieved so far and how much you've grown. As you get older, you become more aware of your self and the choices given to you. The path you take is ultimately up to you, but the best decisions made are done without agony. In fact, my spontaneous ideas are my best ;)
Take it this way, if you become stressed over making a decision then listen to your guts. You know what to do but you're stressed because you're afraid that you'll make the wrong choice right? Nix the ego, the pride, the worry of what others will think and just do you.
If you remove judgment of any sort from the picture, if you remove fear and doubt, can you imagine what your life would be like? It would be the life that you're dreaming about, it would be the life that you want so the question is - what truly is stopping you?
Of course, it's always easier said than done but recognizing what's really preventing you from living the life you're daydreaming about (at work all the time) is step one. As they say, "Don't quit your daydream..." but instead turn that dream into reality.
