it had to be better than what he was leaving behind

He didn’t know what he was going to, but it had to be better than what he was leaving behind

– Harry Potter

We don’t know what lies in the future, we don’t know where we’re going to end up

But every day we get the chance to shape our future through the choices we make and the opportunities we take

So no matter how bad the past has been we can look ahead with great excitement because the future possibilities are endless so they have to be better than what we leave behind

Destiny is something you create

Destiny is something you create with your own 2 hands

We all say it was destined to be

But that’s impossible since the future can change in a moment with each choice and action we make,

It was never destined to be…

And since the future changes with each choice and action we therefore create our own destiny

With the choices we make,

The difference between meeting the partner your destined to be with or not could be sending a message

The difference between getting your dream job or not is through the actions you make…

Whatever it is you want the future is unwritten so take your hands and get creating that future

You are your destiny

Life On Hold

On Hold

It’s easy to put your life on hold when you’re looking forward to or nervous about something.

‘Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes, and denies us the present by promising the future’

-Seneca

We’ve had these issues for a few thousand years by the looks of it.

But all those things that we could have done, whilst waiting for an uncertain future is such a waste…

I know because I am the king of it…

2020 was no doubt a lonely year especially for me (You can read about it in my posts about Rome)

So when get speaking to someone and the conversation goes well, All I want to do is talk to them, Kinda understandable but I miss out on, Reading, Studying, Writing, Not focusing 100% on my workouts…

And the majority of the time they amount to nothing…

So not only have I wasted time but got nothing out of it either…

We all do it,

like when you’re waiting to hear back from a job, you don’t apply for others, you just keep refreshing your emails hoping for that one that says congratulations…

I’m sure there are many other examples too…

But the moral is, The present is all we have, don’t but your life on hold for something not guaranteed.

To Die in the present

To live in the past.

To live in the past is to die in the present,

What we had, has gone.

Businesses, Relationships, Money, Cool Kid Status…

Whatever it is, is no more.

But that does not mean that we can not rebuild, Because we can.

But we can’t rebuild in the past or the future.

Only in the present.

So we need to snap out of memory lane, dust off the dirt, Pick ourselves up and get to it.

Otherwise, we are just waiting to die.

The Weight and Filter of the past

The Weight and Filter of the past

Is what we are basing our lives we live today on.

What happened in the past does not equal your future…

But when you look out of the horizon on your future, you are looking through a lens that is filtered from past mistakes.

So you cannot get past them and you are constantly living in the past today.

Which means you cannot progress because of this weight that’s dragging you down.

But this filter is from the past, right… So why should it determine what you do in the future?

Why should we be held back by a filter that isn’t even relevant anymore…

We shouldn’t…

So you need to find a way to let go of the weight and remove the filter so you can start living today.
