Never regret anything in life, because at one time it was exactly what you wanted.
It’s been a big couple of weeks since I last wrote, and I’ve been thinking about it a lot.
I’ve just settled into a new (albeit temporary) home, living with my parents, in a small country town in Victoria, Australia. As I adjust to a new environment, MUCH colder temperatures, and a new “routine”, I am happy to say that my urge to write for all of you continues to burn hot and fierce.
So, what’ been happening?
If there is one thing I have learnt that has changed the way I think profoundly during my short time, I can say that it’s this.
Having more does not equal happiness.
This applies to money, relationships, objects……… anything.
Instead, I’ve discovered the true value in getting by with less, and making do with what I already have.
Some would see it as being ‘cheap’. I see it as a smarter way of being that gives me satisfaction, happiness, and a feeling of freedom that allows me to do so many more activities which feed my love for life.
You’ve got an idea.
A dream, a passion, a goal; a desire to be something else.
Progress is being made, but there are some days where you find yourself chasing other, juicier carrots.
It’s you, the donkey, that must decide whether the carrot in your face or the carrot awaiting you during the course of your journey, is worthy of the crunch. Despite your hunger, you already know the answer……..
Is this you?
Are you getting distracted by the abundance of opportunity?
Or should I say, I was.
