How many time have you put this off?
Procrastination the curse that just keeps on taking.
Time and time again we are granted with opportunities to accomplish tasks yet we keep giving those opportunities away.
Time and time again and ironically we end up with less and less time…
I started a course a year ago and it expires today,
Guess who’s spending their evening trying to complete it… Me.
Even after a year of lockdowns and countless lazy days…
Think of your many years of procrastination; how the gods have repeatedly granted you further periods of grace, of which you have taken no advantage. It is time now to realise the nature of the universe to which you belong, and of that controlling Power whose offspring you are; and to understand that your time has a limit set to it. Use it, then, to advance your enlightenment; or it will be gone, and never in your power again
– Marcus Aurelius
Energy is no quick fix.
Neither is anything worth attaining in life.
I’ve been frustrated lately with the fact that I’m always tired no matter how much sleep I get. Venting my frustration whilst journaling I concluded that,
Energy isn’t a quick fix.
Getting a little bit of extra sleep isn’t going to fix my energy issues, nor is a Redbull.
Energy (Like anything in life) needs constant work, Like getting proper meals in consistently, along with exercise and sleep.
Then and only then I will see energy improvements.
It’s the small things we do daily that will give us the best returns on our investments
Not the quick 250ml cans.
Lets put the work in.
Your head is not an island
Have you ever just thought ‘my head is fucked’
Like thoughts all over the place, stressing for no reason and just being pure negative
Then you start thinking what the hell is wrong with me, why am I like this.
You start blaming the fact that you have a negative mindset and that your head is fucked.
But you fail to notice when your Blaming your head the way your lifestyle has been lately
You’ve not been eating properly, you stopped exercising and your not even walking as much,
You’ve been stressed at work, your not getting meaningful connections out of your relationships because your too distracted
All this adds up
Your head is not an island, everything you do has an effect on how you think and feel, the things you do internally and externally
Your not broken and your head is not fucked everything you do is connected.
Take a step back, have a think about all the things that can be causing these feelings and make a plan to get back to reality
2020 isn’t over yet
So don’t give up on it.
Yeah things haven’t gone your way
A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing
But they dont blame it on the year
And they don’t just throw in the towel
It’s not been the best year for anyone
Yet there is still time to make a better landing
Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
No one is responsible for your happiness,
And your not responsible for anyone else’s
No one is responsible for your growth
No one is responsible for your career
No one is responsible for the actions you take, or dont take
Stop waiting for other people to solve your problems,
Stop blaming other people,
Just get out there and tend to your garden and watch what happens
It’s all on you.
