Food for Thought

How can we excel amongst the mess of our reality if we are constantly being weighed down by it. Despite what is going on around us, we have to rise above it all.

We have to learn how to not allow our environment to infect us.

Why not be the light in the dark or the smile amongst the frowns. Who knows when your storm will pass, so dance in the rain and sing though your pain because sitting and complaining will only give you more of the same.. only action can bring change.

I love you today

What’s love? A few letters mashed together or is love a feeling?

What’s love if it’s not unconditional?

Why do you love? Is it because the person makes you happy, is it because they’ve got nice clothes, a sweet face, good job or do you love them because of how they make you feel or what they do for you? Is it really love or is it lust, better yet who even understands love? Does love even make any sense? Doesn’t falling in love mean you can eventually fall out of it?

These are the questions so many think about but are afraid to ask.

I believe to love a person is to love them for being the imperfect being they are, it’s loving them despite their flaws. It’s loving their energy, their essence, it’s the air that surrounds them. It’s not these temporary superficial things that will eventually fade.. it’s loving that persons true self.

People get into relationships and refer to the beginning as the honeymoon period, the period where it’s bliss straight sailing. True natures hidden we grow to love a false representations of that person, or a half self where only the best traits are shown. Six months later the relationship is on the rocks because your true selves begin to come out and that’s not what you both signed up to right. You fell for the mask.

This is why it’s so important to be yourself from the beginning. I’ll show you my bipolar personality, I’ll tell you exactly what you’re getting yourself into. I’ll share my past with you, I will never pretend to be perfect or try to present myself as someone who hasn’t made any mistakes. Doing this takes some level of personal awareness, because no one knows your flaws better than you.

We’re living in a time where it’s so important to own our bs. If we want to be loved for who we are, we must embrace our true selves. Less relationships would fizzle out if everyone was able to do this.

Don’t allow someone to fall in love with the idea of you, let them fall for the real you because once they realise that the idea they have cultivated in their head doesn’t match up to reality, they will easily fall back out of this so called love they was in.

The moral of the story.. be yourself and you can’t go wrong.

So what is love? There is no one true complete answer. The real question is what is love to you? That’s all that matters.

No more lies, No more excuses

A point comes when you no longer have any excuses to tell yourself, all the reasons you use to justify why you haven’t started a certain project or given up that annoying bad habit eventually run out. You can lie to everyone around you, you can even lie to yourself for awhile but after awhile even you will stop believing the lies and excuses you tell yourself.

Why do we put things off until the last minute, why do we wait until our backs are against the wall?

The bigger the change the bigger the sacrifice. If it was going to be easy we’d have done it by now right? We anticipate how hard something will be and this is what stops us from starting in the first place. The thought of not knowing how to do something makes us uncomfortable and puts us off, wanting instant results and not getting them discourages us, thinking about how to start stresses us out so we don’t.

If we stop at the first mind hurdle we’ll never make it out the blocks to the action stage. Some would rather not start if they can’t guarantee success but ask yourself this, isn’t not starting failure anyway?

Enough is enough! We can’t keep thinking like this, we can’t keep allowing ourselves to be our own downfall. What we put in is what we get out, it’s as simple as that.

We can keep doing the bare minimum and continue to minimum results or we can choose to say now is the time and do more.

Anger & Rage

A man who does not get angry is a dangerous man. It is impossible to never feel anger, to never get angry is to suppress the emotion. Bottling things inside only ever leads to one outcome.. an explosion as the bottle can no longer take the pressure.

I understand now, the key is not about never allowing yourself to get angry, it’s recognising the emotion and releasing it in the right way to avoid an explosive build up. It’s not about releasing it on to someone else, as the cycle will just continue unless they themselves are aware enough to not bring about an reaction. It’s about responding to your anger, responding to your frustrations in the right way. 

An impulsive person doesn’t act from the conscious mind but the unconscious. 

They say stress can make you unwell and it’s true, it’s the same for anger. A build up of negative emotions eventually start to manifest into the physical in the form of various conditions. We have to learn how to release these negative feelings. Exercise, sing, write do anything to bring about a switch in your emotion, do whatever works for you. 

Our emotions do not have to control us to the point where we are being tossed around living in turmoil alongside our up and down emotions. Emotions can fluctuate from day to day hour to hour, emotions are feelings in motion we just have to learn how to navigate them. 

Certain emotions such as anger and sadness are not always a bad thing as long as we respond in the right way sometimes these feelings are trying to tell us something.

Possessed by your own unconscious repressed subconscious this is what we call rage. Anger should never turn into rage. Becoming aware of our emotions is the first step, responding in the right way is the second.

Opportunities, Fear & Patience

Some opportunities don’t come around everyday so when they do appear we have to be ready and willing to take it. 

There is never going to be a perfect time to start something new only the time you make.

So many times in our life we talk about wanting more, wanting to be more but we’re afraid to take the risks having more involves. 

Fear of failure is what is stopping so many of us from chasing our dreams. Fear of not knowing what to do is what keeps so many of us in our comfort zones. Ultimately we pass up on opportunities because of fear. 

The decisions we make in life should be based on our dreams and aspirations not on our fears. We have to accept that with all things we have to start from somewhere and then be prepared to put in the necessary man hours to master our craft. 

We live in a age where everyone wants instant results, we live in a now generation where everything is fast paced and easily accessible. As the years have gone by and the world we’re living in has changed, patience is one of the characteristics we have lost along the way. We’re not accustomed to waiting for things like those before us who had no choice.

Success doesn’t download at these fibre optic speeds we’re now experiencing, real life results is still working on a dial-up speed meaning it takes time, they may be some interruption but with perseverance you will eventually get what you want.

Don’t let fear stop you from taking opportunities, when they come knocking open the door and with all things remember to be patient.

Peace, Love & Positivity
