Growing up, we are asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?”…But the proper question is “Who do you want to be in this world?”
When I was in my teens, I focused a lot of my energy on my external development. Meaning, I wanted a better body, better skin, better clothes – and after University, a better job and economic status. What worried me most after working for a few years was how I was never satisfied with my job and would always get bored after the initial excitement. I was scared that I would always feel that way towards any job I got. So I began seriously searching for my remedy. I was searching for true happiness.
Right now, I would say that I am probably at the happiest point in my life because I am finally in full control of my life. Unbeknown to most, we live a large part of our lives based on the opinions of other people, even if we don’t believe it.
It took a while for me to peel off the invisible layers that controlled me but when I finally took off the last layer, the world changed in front of me and I felt limitless. I am now more compassionate than I have ever been, I feel a deep connection with everything else in the world, and I am enjoying my life so much more, even though none of my circumstances have changed. Only my mind has.
You will see that I went through a significant change between my first post and now.
I want to help other people in this world find their peace. No living being should live their lives in misery – not even animals. If you do not feel like you have anyone to talk to, then at least know that I care about you, believe it or not. Hopefully the contents of this blog will help you figure out a few things. Sometimes it takes just one quote or idea to help transform our thoughts.
I will probably not post consistently, but my intentions here are simply to inspire. I trust that those who could benefit from this blog will find it. 🙂
