A-Z of Life – Honesty

self-honesty-freedomLet’s be honest – it’s always easier to blame other people/other circumstances for our misfortunes in life, isn’t it?

But where does that get us?

Nowhere, that’s where.

Or continually walking down a path always looking for something or someone to blame and never once looking closer to home.

But maybe we should.

Every day we always have a choice.

And those choices determine what happens in our lives. Some of it will be good and some of it will be not so good.

But, and here’s the crux of the matter, if the choice you made turns out to be not so good, then instead of looking for someone or something to blame we need to look at our actions. After all, weren’t we the one who made that particular choice?

We’ve all done it. It’s human nature. If something goes wrong it’s easier to blame circumstances or fate or luck, isn’t it?

I’ve spent a good part of my life blaming others for my ‘lot in life’ – unlucky, ugly, useless, worthless, etc. You name it, the list is pretty long.

But, over the last couple years, having been on this voyage of self-discovery I realised the ‘others’ involved may have caused an initial blip in my life (for want of a better expression), but I was then ultimately responsible for how I felt. After all, I was the one that chose to let their actions affect my life, I chose to believe I was worthless, I chose to believe that I deserved everything that was thrown at me, I chose to believe that I should be treated without respect.

“Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it!”

I looked closely at my own actions and worked hard to improve and better myself in all areas of life and these days I wake up and choose to be positive.

Because I believe in myself now.

For sure, I may still get a few wobbles and panics occasionally but I stop, tell myself to stop being so silly and as a certain song goes, always look on the bright side.

I am alive.

I am allowed to have dreams.

I deserve to be here.

I deserve to have a life.

I am worthy of life.

I am worthy of respect.

I value and know my worth.

I choose life.

Do you believe in magic?

magic1

Not the stage hocus pocus, but real live magic?

Stuff that you can’t quite believe.

I believe in magic.

I believe that like destiny and fate there’s a little magic that goes on to place you exactly where you need to be at any given moment in time.

I believe the world is truly magical, we just have to open our eyes to find it.

The A-Z of Life – Ignorance

They say ‘ignorance is bliss’ignorance

But if we turn the proverbial blind eye, pretend not to notice what is happening, think merely that we are imagining things and that everything really is all right, then who are we actually trying to fool?

Ourselves, or the world?

If we carry on fooling ourselves then there must come a point when reality is bound to hit home, and the imaginings become a glaring and stark reality.

If we carry on fooling ourselves for too long then sometimes it may be too late to reverse any situation we may find ourselves in.

If we carry on fooling ourselves and the world who will end up getting more hurt?

We all make mistakes in life, and sometimes even trying to rectify situations doesn’t actually alter the final outcome.

Destiny and fate will ultimately bring us to where we were meant to arrive.

But do we act like the ostrich and bury our heads in the sand, wishing and hoping for a different outcome?

Or do we confront our fears and demons?

Choices

Everything we do in life is a choice.

But, there are 3 things I believe we cannot choose:

  1. our family
  2. when we die
  3. who we fall in love with

Everything else is always a choice.

The choices you make will all be part of destiny’s plan for you. Sometimes though we have to make more choices in order to get to the places we are meant to be at, and so the journey seems, at times, harder and sometimes it feels as if you’ll never reach your destination.

I’m a firm believer in following your heart. You can follow your head, but ultimately you’ll always be happier following your heart 😉
