‘A Podium and a prison is each a place, one high and the other low, But in either place your freedom of choice can be maintained if you so wish’

The first of what I’m calling ‘the midnight meditations’ The 2nd one is >> Here << 

A nice reminder and a midnight brain dump .. –

Lately I’ve been in and out of weird mood swings frustrated because I feel like I haven’t progressed and im not where I want to be, and sort of overwhelmed by what needs to be done yet procrastinating on what can be done now –

Yet at the same time super excited for the future, Knowing what can be achieved, Loving all the education I’ve gained over the past 6months or so.. –

Yet a feeling of loneliness and not living the lifestyle I want to be living (Probably the side effects of working nights alone then sleeping all day, then going back to work without actually speaking to anyone combined with trying to launch a business and being generally ‘Broke’) –

What I’ve not been doing or not been doing enough is ‘Living in the moment’ I’ve been over complicating things by thinking of everything that has to be done yet not in the position to do so. Imagining that dream life without doing enough to get it then beating myself up beacuse I Procrastinated on something i could of done.. –

When you put things into context all that matters is right now, you can’t make a change in the future (the futures an illusion) you have to make the change now, Take action now, Instead of imprisoning myself in my mind, Focusing on the things out of my control, If I focus on everything in my control take action in the present and not dwelling on sh*t i didn’t do because the past can’t be changed but the future can – only if you act now in this moment , Then the success will come.
