Looking back over the years its pretty amazing to see how much one can change
Sometimes that change happens at random through an event or person
Other times its intentional through study, exercise and personal development
A lot of the change over my life was random until the last 3-4 years when I started doing intentional change so this post is a day in the life of how I go about that (in no particular order)
1a &b) Reading and study (sometimes I combine the 2)
This is where a big part of my Personal Development came from, reading books on finance, philosophy, buisness, productivity, health and fitness and everything in between Or sometimes I just read novels
2) Exercise- do I need to explain the benefits if exercise, feel better, look better, perform better, I exercise often 3-4 times per week
3) walks and dog walks, get out in nature and move often
4) downtime there was a point in my life where it was just work work work l, everyday I never made any time for downtime and I burnt out, got injured and had no social life
So these are just some of the things I do on the daily for intentional change,
Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.
Hiding from problems, or wishing we never had any, Never doing anything risky will always make the problems or dangers 10x worse
I know I was fairly babied as a kid, I never thought my own battles so facing the real world as a grown-up was a challenge and required more learning than the average adult.
And I sometimes still try to avoid facing problems,
But I’ve learnt that it’s easier to just hit them head-on, it eliminates the fear because you don’t have time to think too much, you just do and at the moment you’ll find that you are equipped to deal with anything.
I tried to grow But I didn’t know how to apply it So instead of growing upwards The more I tried to grow The more i started sinking down into the unknowns below Like an anchor that broke away from the boat I sank deep below Whilst you stayed afloat And drifted away Far from the shore Into the stormy seas
I tried to grow for us But trying wasn’t enough, I should of used more heart The more I tried to grow the more we drifted apart
