Sometimes we look outside ourselves for validation and encouragement. Which in turn can erroneously cause us to falsely believe something that’s not true,if it’s not forthcoming... EVERYTHING of note or worth is an INSIDE job!
Whilst we would prefer to avoid hurt, pain and disappointment, the truth is they are the very things that grow, stretch and develop us! Just like the things that are good or healthy for us always taste bitter or unpleasant same is true of life! The trick is not to resist or avoid but to find something sweet with which to make it more palatable...
Yes, there’s such a thing as over thinking something! Be it a friend or relationship, an idea to do something, a current situation or past experience! Sometimes excessive thinking of pros and cons and trying to figure out every angle before commencing doing something will prohibit it being or getting done!
The art of Non -attachment is a great quality to cultivate, if you don’t already possess it! Not being attached to how things or people show up or turn out is a great way to maintain your peace and equilibrium! Often easier said than done, but the more we practice, the freer we are from drama and disappointment!
It’s usually the small acts of kindness that can impact someone and contribute to their happiness! Don’t put off doing something because you think that you have to do something major in order to make someone happy; do whatever you can now and see the difference you can make...
Sometimes the answers we’re looking for, can’t be found by Google! It requires that we utilise our inner awareness to find the answers within; which in turn requires us to be patient and trusting two attributes that in our fast pace living many find hard to embrace. But, if we can learn to cultivate trust and patience the answers that come to us will help strengthen us in our development in a way that Google never can!
It’s all too easy to feel isolated at times, as we endeavour to live from a more authentic, inclusive, kind and elevated way of being. When it seems the majority of those around us are living to the contrary... But here’s the good news, in spite of appearances as long as we keep on keeping on, we’ll make a difference not only to our own individual lives but to the whole as well!
It’s taken me a while to learn that lasting happiness can only come from me! Yes, people, things and places can be stimulants to me being happy, but what happens when they’re not available? Me making me happy is the only thing that can and is consistent!
I know there some who believe that its impossible not to be angry! If that’s the case then be aware of how long you’re being angry whether it’s minutes, hours days or longer if it’s days and longer,you might want to remember the effect anger is having on you mentally, physiology and spiritually!
Too often we procrastinate! Socially, personally & professionally! As if we have all the time in the world... Given that none of us know consciously how long we have, let’s not waste a minute of it!
It’s Friday and the weekend is about to begin. So live it and do the things that bring you joy and be with the people that make you laugh for in the end these are some of the things that create the memories you can look back on and cherish! There’s no do over, so try and get it right, now!
Worry is such a waste of energy! And yet few of us can stop ourselves from indulging in it! What if we finally accepted that by worrying we’re actually giving our attention to the very thing/s we don’t want to experience, and by shifting our focus onto what we do want today, will help create the tomorrow we’d prefer!
How often do we invest our energy in worrying about things that may never occur or happen? Instead of having the same worry going round and round your head, why not face it and address it head on and come up with a possible solution! Chances are you may never need it, but at least it will break the cycle of continuously focusing on a worry that may never happen!
Whilst it’s important to have an idea of how something is suppose to be or how it’s suppose to go, there’s real liberation in not being attached to how and if it manifests in the way we imagine it! To live this life we must be continuously prepared to let go of preconceived outcomes!
There are times when the chaos of life and living makes us, to either want to run from it or bury our heads in the sand! But either of those two options robs us of the peace we’re seeking! Instead we have to confront whatever it is we want to separate ourselves from and choose a different mindset or way of seeing it! We have to choose not to allow a sense of overwhelm to overtake us by being selective in our thoughts and attitudes!
How often, do we postpone doing something for fear of what our friends will say if they find out? But the truth of the matter is everyone may have an opinion about what they think we should or shouldn’t do, but ultimately it’s your life and you can’t live it by public opinion, because you’re bound to displease someone! So go ahead and live your life your way your way!!!
Sometimes we all need reminding that Life has to be lived by looking forward and not continuously looking backwards! Of course there are things we can learn from our past, but the point is to learn them and not continuously relive them!
It’s time to stop believing the hype, that we need more and more stuff to be happy, or the perfect relationship to be complete, or to be a size 0 to be beautiful! What we need is a willingness to open our eyes and appreciate just how blessed we already are, just as we are and with what we have!
There are no two blades of grass, two leaves on a tree or two fingerprints the same! So why is it people want to “look” like someone else or conform to someone else’s opinion of what they should be like... Each of us is a unique, one of a kind original! We only need the courage to be our true authentic selves!
Sometimes we need to break the rules a little about how something has always been done, in order to create or introduce a new way of doing, being and seeing... we need to be original and not be ready to keep conforming or being overtly concerned with The naysayers opinions, for nothing new or of note ever got created that way!
