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
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’
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 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
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…
So you need to find a way to let go of the weight and remove the filter so you can start living today.
It’s not the absence of fear that makes us brave,
It’s how we act when fear is present.
Everyone gets scared, Everyone has something to fear.
I think everyone at some point has wanted to curl up into a ball and hide from the world, which is ok but great things get done when we feel that fear and face them anyway (I think that’s the name of a book.)
The future is uncertain, The way the world is right now, I definitely want to find a rock and hide under it.
But that will do no good.
Make a stand, don’t fear being afraid.
Fear is always near
