Here is the truth many of us are too afraid to admit, and we spend countless hours in front of the television or our computer screens, or scrolling on social media feeds, or worrying about pointless details, to avoid acknowledging it:
We are vulnerable, fragile human beings.
No day in our lives is guaranteed. Not one single day. Not one.
You could have one more day to live, or you could have 30 more years. You just don’t know.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have, how many stock options or 401K plans you’ve acquired. It doesn’t matter what your title is, what company you work for, who you know. It doesn’t matter how big your house is, or whether you drive a nice car or a clunker. All of those things fade. So what is real? What is true? What will make you sincerely happy?
Do you have any interest in exploring that, or are you going to eat a donut, open a bottle of beer, and anxiously grab for a phone or a computer screen and pretend you’re alive?
At root, we have to come to terms with the knowledge that in most of our lives, we are not in control. We can control our own behavior, and that’s it.
So how do you move through life with this awareness, and act with wisdom, clarity, without regret? And as a byproduct, experience abundant joy and pleasure?
What needs to happen is that you begin to acknowledge your own vulnerability, and own it. You get very honest with yourself about what you can control, and what you can’t control, and how you’re going to proceed.
You spend time alone, doing deep inner work, sorting things out.
What negative patterns have I engaged in? Why do I keep ending up in the same rotten situations? Am I saying how I really feel? What am I afraid of? Am I always going to feel sad and alone?
How am I going to live better, so I feel good about myself, so I love myself, so I become trustworthy? How can I live life on my own terms, and still act with a clear conscience?
When we’re not able to acknowledge our own vulnerability and communicate with others about it, we end up in False Relationships. Relationships that don’t serve us. Relationships that repeat old, damaging, negative patterns. Relationships that leave us feeling broken and raw and desperate. Relationships that bring up old wounds, time and time again, that have never healed. And we get further and further from what we want, more and more hopeless, more and more resigned. And it impedes us from living the live we really want to live.
So we settle. And we end up in the same situation again.
I’m hear to help you make wise choices so you move past old patterns, old wounds, old traumas, and live in way that is free and whole, fresh and new, exciting, engaging, fun, and beautiful.
Because that’s what you deserve. That’s what you’re here for. That’s what your spirit came on earth to do.
