Are you the type of person that tends to go with the flow? How about your friends. Are they the result of a period of lonely desperation?
Take a break, step back, and ask yourself the following question.
Is your life in “fate’s” hands, or are you the captain of your ship?
How much of what has happened in your life is the result of your desire to have it happen? Are the people in your life providing a positive contribution to your growth? Do your actions align with who you are, and more importantly, who you want to be?
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.
No, this isn’t a ramble on a higher power.
This is a post emphasising that the power is within you.
Let me explain.
Lately I’ve been concious to some interesting things happening around me.
Actually, it’s hard not to be. I am finally undergoing big life changes, working towards a more positive direction.
- I got a second job at a cafe, a dream of mine for many years now, and have met some really cool people (high 5 Emily 🙂 )
- A relationship with a loved one ended (her choice), opening my eyes to the truth of the situation
Another long weekend has just passed in Australia, and it was a great time for me to unwind and take stock. I decided to explore the great outdoors with some wonderful friends, on an adventure to Porcupine Gorge.
As I drove home after the 3 days away, I realised that the most valuable experience I got was not actually the travel experience as I thought.
I got value out of a break from routine.
Have you ever felt in a rut? Like nothing you do excites you? Do you find yourself dreading home life.
I regularly do.
It is better to conquer yourself than to win a thousand battles. Then the victory is yours. It cannot be taken from you, not by angels or by demons, heaven or hell.
Welcome back to my dedicated readers, and a big Aussie G’day to those newcomers that have landed here through Facebook and Twitter.
How has your week been?
It’s been a huge week for me. So much has happened it puts my head into a spin.
Today it’s a slightly shorter post to stir your brain juice. My fight against the flu is coming to a close, and my thoughts are not ideal for inspirational writing. However, I’m committed the promise I made to you in my first post.
Today, I would like to raise your awareness to a passionate topic of mine.
I was in the kitchen the other day and I observed my house mate preparing a cup of tea for breakfast.
He filled the 1.7 litre kettle to the top.
