Things fall apart

Things fall apart,

Nothing lasts forever and somethings are supposed to fall apart,

Your gym trainers, you don’t buy them to keep them in the same condition, they were made to eventually wear out…

Somethings fall apart when they could be held together,

But we neglect them, There not that important until it’s too late,

Like your car, the engine light isn’t that important until it blows up, or your bold tires can be replaced tomorrow but when you have ablow out today…

We treat our bodies like this too, that ache in your lower back isn’t important until it cripples you picking up your grand kids,

Like the tires could be replaced, that crippling back pain could have been prevented by stretching it out when it was just an ache…

Things fall apart, But they don’t have too

Not if we treat them right

Perhaps happiness is found in the journey uphill

Perhaps happiness is found in the journey uphill – Jordan Peterson

Adversity is your friend, not your foe

That slow climb up that steep hill is probably the happiest your going to feel

Not when you hit the peak, But in that struggle to the peak

When you hit the peak it won’t be long till you return o your base level of happiness

When you’re at the bottom of the hill, you telling yourself how bad it is to be stuck there
and how you can’t make it to the top, unfortunately, this is where most people stop.

They never find out what their capabilities are and they never find the beauty in the struggle.

Climb that hill, When you hit the peak, Climb a bigger one (there’s always a bigger mountain remember.)

“My mother forgot to pack my food”

“My mother forgot to pack my food” – Girl on the coach.

The woman sat behind me on the phone kept saying to whoever it was she was talking to

That her mother forgot to pack her food, so now she has to wait till she gets to London until she eats… (from Blackpool)

Ouch

But thanks to her mother it gave me something to write about today…

We realise on other people all the time, people say that they are going to things, they will help us with this and that,

The issue, Other people have there own shit going on.

And sometimes they let us down.

Intentionally, sometimes they just forget and sometimes they just had no intention of actually helping us and they just said yes in the moment.

Now there is nothing wrong with needing help, I outsource certain tasks that are beyond my capability all the time.

Our business is based on people needing help…

But sometimes in the case above… You can pack your own lunch.

You could have done the task yourself.

Sometimes it’s not your Mothers fault for not packing your lunch.

Sometimes it’s on you.

Get help by all means (We can go further together)

But don’t be lazy, don’t try and pass the blame when you got yourself into that mess by not doing what you could have done.

Do the work
‘Pack your own lunch’

Learn to lose in order to recover

Imitate the trees. Learn to lose in order to recover, and remember nothing stays the same for long’ – May Sarton

In the harshest winters, a tree will look dead, No leaves nothing… But after a harsh winter, that same tree will have the most gloriest spring…

You too will have harsh winters, will feel like you have lost everything… but in the time of struggle remember this is just a season in your life…

This too shall pass

and know that something beautiful is getting ready to spring, That beauty comes deep from within, deep down in your roots, it can’t be seen on the surface.

Don’t let the harsh times defeat you… ‘Nothing stays the same for long’

Almost anything will work if you unplug it for a few minutes

Almost anything will work if you unplug it for a few minutes… Including yourself – Anne Lammot

We can get overwhelmed, stressed and run down…

We can get stuck on projects for days, weeks or even years.

If your anything like me this makes you feel like a failure, that you should quit or that you’re not good enough…

Of course, these thoughts aren’t actually ‘Me’ or ‘You’ its the inner resistance talking but its loudest when we feel like this.

We’re like a weakened gazelle and the resistance sees its chance to strike.

The solution though is not to quit but unplug for a few minutes (or days) go for walks and get plenty of rest.

Solutions to your problems will emerge, Lost energy will be found and then resistance can be silenced (for a while).

Don’t quit… Unplug
