What makes you uncomfortable

What makes you uncomfortable

I’ve travelled alone a few times now

And I actually hate it, it makes me feel uncomfortable

It goes a little something like this

Arrive then get to hotel, then think Omg what the f*ck am I doing here, what do I do now,

Make things up to do in my hotel room (procrastination) then finally brave the unknown world

The omg what the f*ck am I doing here really compounded when I walked into the hotel bar back in march to find everyone over 60 swing dancing. Then the next day realising the place was on the verge of lockdown so nowhere was open

But the fact it makes me uncomfortable is also the reason why I have to do it sometimes.

Otherwise I’ll just become a hermit who has to rely on other people to see the world

That being said there are other things that make me uncomfortable and I avoid like the plague… one thing at a time right

What things in life make you uncomfortable that if you tackled would make your life a little better

Life begins when

Life doesn’t happen when you dropped those last few pounds

That’s not when you start to live

Life doesn’t happen when you get that promotion

That’s also not when you start to live

Life doesn’t happen when you get the grades you want, get excepted into the university you want, get the degree you want,

You don’t start to live after you have achieved something,

Life doesn’t begin when your earning x amount, or look a certain way or have some letters after your name

Life happens daily, before during and after you get those things

Life can be awesome, but your missing it because you think it starts once you retire…

In Between Time

We book a holiday and all we do is look forward to it,

We imagine ourselves sat on a beach with a cocktail, or seeing a world famous site whilst we go about our boring daily lives

We get excited about going to a party or a meal with so and so and once again this consumes our mind

But the time in between planning the thing and actually doing the thing matters just as much

Yeah you may be looking forward to your holiday or whatever but are you not equally looking forward to another day.

Instead of daydreaming about what you could be doing in 2 weeks time you could be enjoying the taste of your food or the sites around you

The things we do in between are the important stuff because they take up the majority of our lives and to be honest they’re pretty amazing if you learn to appreciate them

They are felt with the heart

“The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or touched, they are felt with the heart.”

The little prince

It’s not the mansion that’s beautiful, It’s the hard work you put in to acquire it that makes it so,

It’s not the abs you want, its the feeling of achievement you get once you have them

It’s not the relationship, just two people together, Its all the hardships you’ve been and overcome together that make it

It’s not the things we own, or our jobs we do its all the things we cannot see but have the biggest impact,

Happiness isn’t the holiday, or the cash in the bank, or the dream partner,

It is and always will be the work and the effort we put in.

“People where you live, the little prince said, grow five thousand roses in one garden… Yet they don’t find what they’re looking for… And yet what they’re looking for could be found in a single rose.”

Walk on road, hm?

Walk on road, hm?

Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later…get squish just like grape.

Mr Miyagi

Or as Yoda says, Do or do not there is no try

It doesn’t matter what we do in life, we just need to commit to it

I’ll try, or I’ll guess I’ll give it ago, yeah maybe… whatever it is that your not fully committed to isn’t worth attempting as it’s just a waste of precious time

I’ll try and quit smoking, I’ll give that diet ago,

You already know after a couple of meals your not going to stick at it

This is true for everything in life, left or right, just make a decision and get out of the road
