Sunday morning blog time. Please sip something tasty and read my thoughts on this fine March morning.
I have recently had an “aha” moment that really spoke to me.
So often in life we tend to get stuck working the grind. Life can feel monotonous and can lose the spark of spontaneity. And that sense of repetition can be comforting for us. We can predict how we are going to feel throughout the day and know that there probably won’t be any big surprises. It’s playing safe and I love the quote:
“A ship is safe in the harbour, but that is not the purpose of a ship…”
Do you have gifts to give others? Yes. Do you have talents? Yes. Do you have time to invest in yourself to grow and evolve? Yes…. Until you don’t.
If you’re stuck in a rut, change course. I know that it can be easier said than done but unless you’re really subconsciously enjoying the “misery loves company” disease trap that we can blindly fall into, do something different to get out of it.
Things that you know will help are to eat better, read uplifting stories, move your body, volunteer, become part of a community group, contribute to society, journal gratitude, stop focusing on the doom and gloom, etc…Do something different if you want something different!! I know that it can be hard when you don’t even have that will inside you to do that, but I cannot stress enough just to do a baby step here and there. Something is always better than nothing.
I’m not here to tell you how to reprogram your brain but I do know from personal experience, that what we put our thoughts toward, more of that will be apparent in our lives. (*currently putting my thoughts toward chocolate*).
I have been in deep sadness for bouts of time myself and I understand it, but I also know how vital it is to not dwell.
The mini story that I love is about the wolf of anger and the wolf of love. Which wolf grows bigger in your life? Anger or love? I’ll tell you a secret….it’s the one you feed.
We have all had horrific events in our lives. We have all had beautiful events in our lives. This life is a Great Mural of many colours that contribute to our Life’s Masterpiece.
Everyone has personal thought processes on how they react to events and experiences in their lives. We all are at different places and have different perspectives.
But, if you want joy, you’re going to have to do some work. You’re going to have to face some demons from your past and move through it. But you have to want it more than what you’ve got right now.
Don’t let your mind imprison you. You were created for far much more than that.
Be gentle with your progress.
Tipping my hat to you and your journey,
