Think of your life as a journey, as a story with many chapters. We all have a beginning, a middle and will have an end. Through our journeys we will have many life experiences, make many decisions, and see our lives through our personal lenses.
We cannot have ‘good’ times without experiencing ‘bad’ times, ‘fun’ times without experiencing ‘boring’ times, or ‘energetic’ times without experiencing ‘stuck’ times. Everything is relative, and we judge things based on past experiences and how we see life.
So my question to you is this: How do you want to live your journey of life?
Unfortunately I know so many people who are going against the flow of life, see most things as ‘bad’, and overall just appear to be fighting through life. They are usually in a state of wanting things to be different, which causes stress and suffering. They are usually blaming others for the way things are. The journey for these people is probably quite grim and stressful, don’t you think?
When we start to find acceptance in life, and take each moment as it comes, we can experience some personal peace.
We are all human, and are all a work-in-progress. But being awake and aware of how you are thinking and reacting to things is an enlightening experience in life.
Think about your journey by stepping back a little from being inside your head. How do you want to live your journey of life? What do you want your journey to be like? At the end of your journey, what do you want to look back and see in your life?
