This past year has been tough in many ways.
My marriage ended.
Our cat died.
My cousin was killed.
When shit like that happens, it’s easy to wish that life were different. It’s human to wish this. It’s natural and probably unavoidable at the time.
But life isn’t different, so eventually we have to get to a point where we realise that wishing it were is pointless.
Certain things that are happening in my life are showing me the meaning behind some of those events.
I’ve realised that often we can’t know the meaning behind an event when we’re in it; it’s not until we emerge on the other side that we realise its importance.
So my advice to you if you’re in the middle of it; don’t worry if you can’t see the meaning now, know that it all happens for a reason and that reason will one day reveal itself to you if you are open to it.
A while ago I encouraged my daughter Zara not to listen to a friend who wanted her to do something that she didn’t feel good about.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
The thought of hard decisions is often worse than the consequences.
Some people bring magic into your life.
I’m in my office at the moment. This morning I’ve planned next week, had multiple meetings and worked on some strategic moves for my business.
