The ‘One Day’ Trick

The way things have gone recently, I don’t feel like I have very much agency at the moment.  It is not my ideal situation.  So to get through, this time, I am using the ‘one day’ trick.  I know that one day I will have freedom and will have a lot of agency over my own life.

What are your tricks for getting through less than ideal situations?

The Beauty of Reality

Our souls are beautiful – we all know that.  We also all know that everyone is a good person, deep down.  We have all just been skewed in various ways by our parents/relatives/friends/life in general.  What matters now is how we act and how we love.  We can be bitter and twisted, or we can care and support.

This post isn’t quite about that, though.  It’s about love, and how we approach being a partner.  Yes, we are, in general, slightly fucked up good people.  What matters is not the beauty of our souls, though, but the grace with which we look after ourselves.  This is the trick, the knack, the reality to love and life.

Spring Water

I get thirsty, a lot.  And when I do, I drink tap water.  My super health conscious friend recently advised I start drinking spring water instead.  I did, and I noticed the difference straight away.  I felt lighter and more well immediately, and it seems to be getting even better with time.  My under eyes are not dark anymore.

I think it is due to the heavy metals in tap water.

Would you be willing to try switching?

Or… Are We Blessed?

Every creature has a lot to overcome.  I have an illness or two, etc.  Sometimes life can be a struggle.  For everyone.  But how we see our challenges radically changes our future.  Here’s how:  if we just mope around feeling sorry for ourselves, what scope is there for making a positive outcome happen?  I can’t see it.  The only way to make positive changes is to see each challenge as a chance to grow.

How do you see your situation?

Uncertainty

How do we deal with uncertainty?  Well, letting go of the ‘I can’t cope’ story is a start.  When we engage in a mindfulness practice, we start to see the narratives we tell ourselves for what they are; stories we tell ourselves.

But what if we’re wrong, what if instead of being fearful creatures we’re actually strong and resourceful?

When you engage in mindfulness, you can battle things that usually give you the trembles, like uncertainty, by seeing through your mind’s usual story.  And you can write a newer, truer one, if you like.

What Is Success To You?

Yes, bad stuff happens.  But, essentially, we are in control of our own lives.  With each healthy meal we eat, with each workout that we do, we are shaping the future we want – a future that will make us happy.  It is implicit, then, that success is completely subjective.

To me, success is having a healthy body and mind.  I’d like to help others.  I’d like to have financial freedom, and handle that with integrity.

What is success to you?
