Make your life a VERB
“The one permanent emotion of the inferior man is fear – fear of the unknown, the complex, the inexplicable. What he wants above everything else is safety.” – Henry Louis Mencken
Marie Curie once said, “There is nothing in life that needs to be feared, only understood.” How true it has become! With age has come vast amounts of wisdom that damn well warrant recognition.
Everything we have been through—the good, the bad, the ugly – all of it, has summed us up into who we are right now at this very moment. No regrets—no matter how many times we have entertained the thoughts of “What if,” it simply is not a current reality and therefore an ultimate waste of time.
Right now, you are YOU yourself, perfectly!
Inside my quiet time reflections, I’ve contemplated how no matter what, by being human, we will always want more; want to change more, want more money, want more peace, want more love, and ultimately, we end up focusing more on the “lack” of things rather than what actually does bring us joy RIGHT NOW.
Instead, it’s time to have more faith in ourselves because believe it or not kids, the universe will conspire with us to attain our dreams if we truly in our heart of hearts want something badly enough. The key is to stay focused, to take action wherever and whenever necessary, and be positive! Stop polluting your environment with all your negativity! Don’t call every person you know to complain or partake in all the gossip. More so, stop berating yourself over every trip-up, mistake and perceived “failure.”
We have been brought up in a society thus far where our thinking is done for us — what to like, what to wear, what to do for a living, etc. We have been socially conditioned. Think for yourself – be your own person! Stop letting society dictate what will make you happy. If you’re going to struggle – do it knowing, you’re making moves for YOU and your not just some society-dictated robot going along with what everyone else is doing.
I leave you with this thought: Who are you at the end of the day when you strip yourself of all of your conditioning? That is the essence of true non-momentary growth!
“Many of us crucify ourselves between two thieves – regret for the past and fear of the future.” –Fulton Oursler
