The right quality of being morally justifiable
IT TAKES COURAGE TO GROW UP AND BECOME WHO YOU REALLY ARE
Have you ever had a clear sign of who you really are, and then totally ignored it? Maybe it requires too much change, or taking a big risk. Maybe you were scared to convince self, how much you needed this. And so you rationalized that it wasn’t the right time. Convinced you to be sensible and put it off for a while. I know how this feels, because I did it too.
LIFE ENCOURAGES THOSE WHO CHALLENGE
This is the beginning of self-esteem. Although stuff happens, ultimately you are responsible for your actions. When we deeply and utterly understand that to be true, life takes us on a whole new meaning. Whatever has happened until the past moment is gone. This present moment is all again yours and you have the power to do whatever you want to do with it.
Just think: What difference would it make in your life if you had an absolutely unshakable confidence in your ability to achieve anything you really put your mind to?
What would you want and wish and hope for? What would you dare to dream if you believe in yourself with such deep conviction that you had no fears of failure whatsoever?
Simplifying Life WILL GIVE PEACE
A simple life has a different meaning and a different value for every person. For me, it means eliminating all but the essential, eschewing chaos for peace, and spending your time doing what’s important to me. It means getting rid of many of the things I do so I can spend time with what I love and do the things I love. It means getting rid of the clutter so I am left with only that which gives me value. However, getting to simplicity isn’t always a simple process. It’s a journey, not a destination, and it can often be a journey of two steps forward and one backward.
I am in a season of my life right now where I feel bone tired almost all of the time. Ragged, how am I going to make it to the end of my day, eyes burning exhausted. But there are also many moments when I have no idea how I’m going to make it until the end. The constant demands, the needs, and the fighting are fingernails across the chalkboard every single day.
Worry drains the power of mind and, sooner or later, it injuries the soul.
I am actually with limits & restrictions. You cannot do it all. We all need to admit that one of the casualty’s specific to our information saturated culture is that we have sky-scraper standards, where we feel like we’re failing horribly. Everyone wants to be recognized. So do me. But I have not been able to learn decision without comparing its repercussions to what I really am. A man almost young, rich only in his doubts and with his work still in progress, accustomed to living in the solitude of work or in the retreats.
One of the reasons we are so exhausted is that we are over-saturated with information about the kind of individual we should be. Maybe it’s time to embrace being the kind of person who says sorry understanding the situation. Who models to take time for self. Who asks God to help to be a better version of the person that you actually are, for more strength to be an ideal person.
From the time we are born our primitive urge is self preservation and this means that we tend to compete/ fight to live for ourselves. Beginning with our need for food, we seek shelter and security for ourselves and our loved ones because it is the herd instinct. As we grow and become adults we become independent but then we tend to become more and more selfish and self centred. While the animal kingdom exhibits similar tendencies, they never have the human weakness of greed. Man alone tends to hoard, to gorge and to deny a fellow human being. It is against this background that one needs to understand the need for the human race to consciously make amends for this selfish tendency and the one way to really do it is to give ourselves completely to a cause where the beneficiary is self.
WORDS ARE GREAT INFLUENCERS
What we must remember is that it is more important to realise that it is OK to be upset. Feeling emotional about a particular event is the human way of coming to terms with it. I have been told more times that I must be thankful that I am still alive. That life has been good to me, and that I should not spoil this second chance. Anyone that has either had a injury or known someone that has or had one will understand just how frustrating this is.
Yes, I have had to relearn how to walk and talk and be. Yes, But encephalitis has played its toll. I am not the person I was before, and I will have to deal with that for the rest of my life. There is still no cure for my illness. It is still something I have to battle with everyday. So, really, I suppose what I am saying is that life’s not fair.Bad thing happens.
But, rather than wallowing in self pity and constantly asking ourselves why, I think I should realise that sometimes life deals us a rubbish hand. We need to understand that being happy all the time is not possible, and therefore spend the time that we do have, living life to the full; because we never know what’s next.
EVERY EVENT HAS A PURPOSE AND EVERY SETBACK IS LESSON.
