Your body sheds your tired skin every twenty seven days. You were not made to hold your past within you. You were not made to carry it all on your back. You physically let go of every bad thing that has ever touched you, of every pair of foreign hands that unbuttoned your shirt but never your demons; you let go of every regret, of every insecurity. You are always gifted a clean slate.
Remember that your tongue is the strongest muscle in your body. You were made to speak, so speak loudly and communicate honestly about how you feel. Speak about what hurts you, about what has broken you. Speak about your story, share it with the world.
Letting go does not mean you stop caring. It means you stop trying to force others to.
If your relationship to the present moment is not right, nothing can ever be right in the future. Because when the future comes, it’s the present moment.
– Eckhart Tolle.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. During Syria & Yemen crisis, EU absorbed almost half million refugees/migrants. Current data shows almost 160,000 of those have just gone missing/out of records. Nobody knows whether they are dead, turned into angels or terrorists. I guess it’s right time to take a strong stance against illegal migration at every part of the world. Corona virus cases are going high once again & winter is around, no one is ready for more bullshit.)
Remember you are not promised tomorrow. So how are you going to ensure that you crash your heart into your life? How are you going to ensure that you leave this world, whenever it happens for you, with a soul that is tender and full and weathered in the best way? With a soul that was never asked to make itself smaller, with a soul that was never waiting for the day it was skinnier, or prettier, or cooler, or more successful, in order to take advantage of the time it was given?
We cannot wait to be the people we have always dreamed of being. We cannot wait for life to perfect itself. There is no right time, there is no perfect circumstance. We have to leap, even when our legs are shaking. We have to show up for ourselves not in 3 months, or 5 years, or 10 years, but now. In this moment. Because every single day is a blessing. Every single day is a gift. Do not lose sight of that.
More than anything, the world needs you to show up strong and courageous. People may not know it, They may not see it, They may not understand it, But deep within you, you have to see it and you have to recognize it.
You may not just see this at present moment, but you see what could be, and that’s a gift. You see the pain, but you also see the healing. You see the problem, but you also see the solution. You see the lack, but you also see the provision. You see the the gap. but you also see the bridge. Lean towards seeing the brighter side. Lean towards creating a better version of yourself at any expense of time or effort. Lean into that & TRUST YOURSELF.
It’s dumb to believe that your best days are behind you. When we’re young, It’s common to hear older people tell us that we’re living the best days of our lives. Although that may be true for them, It doesn’t have to be true for you. When great things happen in our lives, It’s normal to feel bored or to be underwhelmed by the events that came after, maybe you spend a year abroad or experience the best day of your life. And once you return to reality, everything pales in comparison. This remarkable memory might be in your past.
But surely there are more great things still to come. If you want to be happier, drop the belief that your past will always be better than the future. Looking forward to what’s to come will permit those things to arrive. As i always say, TOMORROW IS ALWAYS AN UPGRADE TO OUR TODAY.
Two things always go hand in hand: SUCCESS & RESPECT. Be good at what you do. Everyone loves competent people, especially those who present their best work all the time. You may just be starting out in your profession, but that doesn’t mean you’re not deserving of success & respect.
It’s about starting small and building from there. It’s through improving and gaining experience that you establish yourself and earn the respect of others for your efforts. It’s not an overnight process, but eventually it will gain right people’s attention which may bring tons of prosperity your way.
One can’t be present if they are looking backwards, or for that matter forward. This is a tricky one to explain because it seems to imply that past and future don’t matter, somewhat seeming to contradict our vision for a better tomorrow. But that’s not really true. Let’s look at it like, as humans we often have the tendency to get caught up in thoughts about past achievements & failures. And sometimes, it’s living in our dreams of future that hinder us from seeing the potential of present. We tend to forget that present counts much more than the past or the future. Actually the steps that you take in the present are more important than the memories of the past & dreams of the future.
You need to deal with the past & the future while living in present. Take your sweet time and go back to the past once in a while to collect necessary lesson, then come back and live in your present without reliving those same low points of life. Use lessons from the past and also use dreams of a grand future to drive yourself to take the necessary steps that’s required right right now. We all might have dealt with bad memories and bad experiences in our past, that mustn’t stop us from seeing the light of a beautiful tomorrow. I always say this “TOMORROW IS ALWAYS AN UPGRADE OF TODAY”.
Everything that you do is somehow connected. The past, present & the future all are connected. Your past & present hold significant sway over your FUTURE. You should realise that “no one step” will suddenly shoot you into the future of your dreams. Every single step you have ever taken and the ones you take right now are equally important. Your future is actually culmination of your previous choices & steps. So all of them count.
Therefore, make an effort to take steps which are consistent with your destination. Only that way you can get there. That’s how you reach/fetch GOALS. (Not my words).
