Seek discomfort in order to find happiness – Yes Theory

Seek discomfort in order to find happiness – Yes Theory

It’s almost the end of the year and I want to ask you a question. Are you living a life you’re proud of or are you merely getting by? I’m definitely content with my life but there’s no excitement anymore. Every day, every week the same routine. As if sometimes I just don’t live in the moment.

However, a few days ago, I stumbled onto a channel called Yes Theory.

yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7 - Seek discomfort in order to find happiness - Yes Theory

Derin, Thomas, Matt and Ammar

“In the summer of 2015, four strangers met in Montreal, Canada. Ammar from Egypt, Thomas from France, Matt from the US and Derin from Turkey. Together, we bonded over the idea that life is best lived outside of your comfort zone. So with a total of $500 to our name, we moved into our friend’s 1 bedroom apartment and started making videos attacking some of our biggest fears and seeking discomfort.

Since then we’ve had a show on Snapchat Discover, moved to Los Angeles, and had countless life-altering experiences and new incredible friendships along the way.” – Yes Theory

Without exaggeration, I can safely say that they have changed the way I see things! They are always looking for new ways to seek discomfort and meet new people. You can’t go throughout one video without smiling or laughing. I love the message that they spread 😋

For example, they had a plane cancelled but instead of sulking, they made it an epic adventure and met new people. Here‘s the video.

And it’s true, the most spontaneous ideas are the best memories. Because in the end, you won’t remember the countless nights spent scrolling through social media but the time you went running at midnight in the fields or laughing with a stranger.

So if you are feeling bored or just tired of the routine, do something new. You don’t have to travel the world. I am asking you to seek discomfort, talk to your crush, talk to the person sitting next to you in the train, do things that make you uncomfortable, as long as it is safe because I promise you that the people that you will meet and the memories you will make are all worth it.

XOXO, Rosie <3

“I don’t regret anything I’ve ever done in life, any choice I’ve made. But I’m consumed with regret for the things I didn’t do, the choices I didn’t make, the things I didn’t say. We spend so much time being afraid of failure, afraid of rejection. But regret is the thing we should fear most. Failure is an answer. Rejection is an answer. Regret is an eternal question you will never have the answer to. “What if…” “If only…” “I wonder what would have…” You will never, never know, and it will haunt you for the rest of your days.” – Trevor Noah, Born a Crime

(Matt wrote this in a blog post on their website and I simply love the message.)

    That’s so true, honestly. There’s nothing that I have done that excited me, neither am I explicitly looking forward to anything. But we should be happy that we get to spend another day and another year in this Earth. There are periods where we are so absolutely bored and have no idea what we want to do, but soon enough, there will be something that comes up unexpectedly, so keep hoping, girl!
    Plus, I’m back!!!! (don’t know if you still remember me, but yea.)

    I LOVE THIS! I know exactly what you mean! With finishing up school I’ve really been tossing up whether to follow the expected path and go to university, or if I should do somethign crazy and work and travel. The latter would a lot harder, and more challenging, yet altogether more exciting and more me! I’m definitely going to check out this channel 😀 I love these type of posts 🙂 xx

      And honestly, do what you want to do, you don’t have to take the expected path if you don’t want to, travelling sounds awesome!
