It’s hard to live a life with no regrets but harbouring regret doesn’t get us anywhere in life.

We all have a past we could reflect on, pinpointing the exact moments when we should have turned left instead of right, spoke instead of being silent, ran instead of being still. 

Hindsight is a beautiful thing

We can look back and use our past to help us make better decisions in our present, we can use it to learn from but dwell on we shouldn’t. There is no growth in simply replaying a regret, we remain stagnant stuck in a place of nothingness as the past no longer exists. 

Do I have any regrets in life, sure I’ve got plenty but I now look at them differently. I’m not denying them but embracing them. I’m learning how to detach myself from my regrets taking only the positives, taking only the learning outcomes. Everything else does not serve to make me a better person but to bring me down.

Dwelling on our regrets is like digging a hole for ourselves and continuing to dig deeper hoping one day to miraculously escape. 

We can not do over any of our past actions all we can do is learn from the past and move on.

We’re all guilty

Complain all some do is complain 
If you don’t like something change 
Complaining changes nothing 
You can complain or actually do something 
Blowing negative energy on to it fires
Problematic flames will only grow higher
If you don’t like something change it
If you don’t like something remove it
It’s not rocket science there’s nothing to decipher
You have the power you have all that you require
Energy wasted complaining 
Better placed ego taming 
Better placed taking action
Anything’s possible with a bit of dedication

If you don't like something change it. If you can't change it change your attitude don't complain

Learning Never Stops. Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

They say play to your strengths, I say develop your weaknesses.

We will never reach new heights if we’re not willing to push and test ourselves. Playing to our strengths is all good and dandy but we will never grow to our full potential by doing this.

Sometimes we have to step outside of our comfort zones, work on the things we are not so good at for it is these things which will help push us to the next stage in our lives.

There is always room to learn something new, identify your weaknesses and work on them. If we stay doing what we are only good at we plateau, this is fine if you are ok with that but for those who want more from live we have to push on. We have to help ourselves grow. 

Learning never stops. 

Once you stop learning you start dying
Food for thought.

How to live free? It’s simple really 

They say when you reach a point in your life where you no longer care what other people think about you, you’ve reached a dangerously awesome level of freedom and it’s so true.

A lot of the time we’re prisoners in our own life because we care so much about the opinions of others. We don’t wear what we want to wear, go the places we want, say the things we mean and the list goes on, all because we are worrying what others will think or say, who cares!

I use to care so much about what everyone thought of me, or what others would say. One day it hit me, it really doesn’t matter. Those who truly know you know you, they know what you’re about and what you stand for and even if they didn’t would it really matter? Would it change a thing, would it actually change who you are? Everyone is entitled to their opinion but honestly their opinion is irrelevant, it only becomes your reality if you make it your reality.

Energy is everything, your energy will speak for itself so let it, everything else is just superficial trimmings. 

When you stop caring about what others think you experience true freedom. To live your life the way you choose to is an amazing feeling. All of that caring about what others think brings so much anxiety into your life, the fear of being judged, the fear of not being good enough, the fear of being misunderstood. It’s so toxic to your well being, it traps you in a state of constant anxiousness and worry.

If we all directed our energy into being the best version of ourselves the way we see it, living our life the way we want to the world would be a much better place. Everyone would be at peace. People wouldn’t be so stressed and worried about minor things, no one will feel the need to keep up with the Jones just because. Do what you want to do, when and how you feel to. 

Don’t allow society to dictate to you how you should live, there is no right or wrong way to do things only the way you choose, the way that makes you happy.

Life is too short to spend it appeasing the masses, worrying about what people think of you. 

How to live free? It’s simple really, stop caring about what other think of you.

Do you, be free.

Today’s Choices, Tomorrow’s Consequences

Everything in life is a choice, there’s nothing anyone can make you do without you yourself making that executive decision. 

Sometimes we find ourselves in situations and we question how did we get into this predicament, what went wrong, why am I here. Somewhere along the line we made a decision that brought us to this exact moment in our life, sometimes we struggle to see the choice or we place blame on others.

We can’t blame another for our current situation when they only have control over their fate the way you have over yours. They make choices to impact their life and you make choices for yours. You could have made a choice a year ago and only now you’re facing the consequences. 

Where we go wrong a lot of the time is that we are always looking to blame someone else for our current situation, we never want to look in the mirror and analyse ourselves. It takes strength to admit ok I’m in this position because I did or didn’t do this because of a choice I myself made. 

Accepting your role allows you to stop being angry and reflect on why you did that, or how you could have done things differently allowing yourself to grow from the situation. Instead of allowing it to become a negative we empower ourselves by reflecting on our choices. This allows us to accept our current situation giving us insight into what we can do to change it, if it’s not a situation we are happy with. 

We are only responsible for our actions, we can not control what other people do. We all have a choice in life, our present is a representation of these choices.
