What My World's Like

Exploration

For the past few weeks, I’ve been sitting back, watching and analyzing: myself, people, life. I’ve gained some insight and direction in the process. I spent some time walking around the city and in the burbs along Fox River thinking and seeing. Soon, but not quite yet, I’ll be ready to share more of those insights; I’m still processing. I encourage everyone to change scenery at some point for a bit–alone. Embrace your be-ing. Dissect your patterns. Explore your growth, or the lack thereof. Oh, and do something that just simply makes you happy.

A little bit of random: lessons learned

  • The world is replete with energy vampires. Depending on your aspirations, you may have to slay them from your life.  It might not be easy, but it is critical.
  • The potential for a transformative moment always exists, even in your pain. You can find the good and end your suffering if you stop torturing yourself.
  • Life really does provide us with signs all the time. Pay attention to them and you might find yours working with a bit more ease.
  • Ego and confidence are not the same thing. Decrease one, increase the other.
  • Once again, love is a verb, not feeling alone. If your love doesn’t translate into anything, what is it, really?  Just as faith without works is dead, so, too, is love without action.
  • There will be times when you have to go at it alone…and for those times, it’s the best possible thing.  Don’t fight it.
  • Know when to let go and walk away. From addictions, arguments, situations, people, etc.
  • Clean out your life regularly. Not just in spring. But it’s spring now, so if you haven’t started, go!
  • People who make you laugh, smile, and think are heaven sent. If one person can do all three, they’re a true gem. Consider keeping them around.
  • Telling your story gives you power over it. Don’t let it hold you back.
