So its been awhile since I wrote anything so I decided it was time to get back onto the band wagon. Over the past 2 months I have been contemplating a lot of things and make some tough choices and decisions as well.
I cant really say why, but I guess every few months or years we need to take a long hard look in the mirror and ask ourselves the hard questions, the questions that we don’t like to have asked or want to think of the answers too.
I wanted to improve myself, I think we all get lost in the daily run of life that we can easily forget about ourselves and trying to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be and I for one have neglected that of late. I got caught up in surviving and wasn’t living. Now living can mean a lot of different things to different people and I want to be clear, I don’t have a bad life and I have a lot to be thankful for but if I was being really honest with myself there was a lot I could do better.
For starters I want to stop talking about other people and having an opinion on everything. This I want to do for a number of reasons, mainly because I don’t think we can have an opinion on something unless we really know all of the facts so it really does then just become your view on something and to be honest who care what you think anyway, right ? Secondly it takes up a lot of time and mostly happens behinde peoples backs and I don’t want to be that person. I want to get on with my own life and worry about that not what everyone else is doing with theirs, each to their own, Live and let live is what I say.
I truly believe that Life is short and so I have made a conscious choice to be aware of that and let people know that they are special and how I feel, I never want somebody close to me to not know how much they mean to me. When last did you tell someone that ? If you reading this and you are close to me, I should of already done this and you need to do the same for others, because you see that is how we can make a difference in the world. Its not about doing BIG, HUGE things, its about making a difference in a small way to 1 persons life.
Donate or give away to people who need things stuff that you don’t need, lets be honest none of need 165 pairs of shoes, so I have got down to about 35 which is still a lot but a huge improvement and still working on getting the number down. One of the most precious things you can give someone is your time, because you can never get that back, so its the most valuable thing you have.
Don’t sweat the small stuff, learn to pick your fights and know what is important to you and go after it and fight fiercely for things you believe in and know in your heart its the right thing to do. Don’t waste your time and energy on things you cannot change and don’t sit in a puddle of mess questioning and crying out to the universe for an explanation on why something has happened.
The quicker you accept it the quicker you can deal with it. So don’t waste time because as we have already established time is the most valuable thing you own and should not be taken for granted as you do not know how much of it you have left.
Love and trust with all your heart, do you really think you are the only one on this planet who has been hurt or been damaged by another person ? Why should the nest innocent person have to bear that cross ? And why let it make you bitter and closed off to the next thing which might be the thing you have waited your whole life for ?
Someone once told me to have an open hand to LIFE and let anything be put into your hand and anything be taken from your hand and to be at peace with change, you should embrace change because everyday you get the chance to do it all differently and do it better so embrace that and attack the day with vengeance and fury.
Because you need to fight for what you want, nothing is going to fall out of the sky and onto your lap, God helps those who helps themselves and the more you practice something the better you get, so don’t sit and sulk. SH** happens and the better you deal with it the quicker you move onto the next part of your life, don’t waste time going around in circles.
Its the same with people, don’t put energy into people who don’t deserve it and make sure that the good ones don’t get neglected or get away. If somebody hurts you forgive them and move on, because they have their own issues and its not for you to try and fix them. Put energy into good and positive people and surround yourself with these people and see how your life changes. Misery loves company and if your negative you will attract negative and more will go wrong.
Lastly connect with nature, with animals, trees, the sea or mountains. Its good for the soul and gives you a breathe of fresh air, you can also use it to scream, shout, cry , pray or whatever else you need to do when in a big open space and nobody is around, its like free therapy.
Know that as you read this, there are people who love you and would do anything for you and those are the people you need to cherish, we often focused on the wrong ones.
So that is just a few thoughts that I am having right now, go away and have a few of your own and even if you just make 1 small change every few weeks you are on the right path.
Life is what happens while we are busy making other plans anyway, so don’t stress too much about it, remember nobody gets out of this thing called LIFE, alive.
God Bless and Smile, it makes other wonder what you up too
