Choices in life are potentially the most difficult things to sometimes go through, especially at the points of major change.
Naturally, as human beings our bodies resists physical and mental change. Science calls it homeostasis. It's the idea of our bodies keeping it's current state because this current state is what has kept us alive. We are living now so why change things?
The problem, with this of course, is social changes absolutely destroy us.
I was on Facebook a few moments ago, and the LifeCoach, Comedian and TV presenter Steve Harvey came on my feed. He started talking about one key bit of wisdom. This is generally the idea that trust in something more powerful than you.
He started discussing the idea of sometimes doors can close on you.
It hurts going through such a change, being kicked out of the current reality. It sucks. You naturally go through a rollercoaster of emotions thinking are they getting back with you? Did you make the right choice? What even triggered this in the first place? Why me? Why do I deserve this?
You have anger, hate, loss and depression all at the same time. You just don't know how to think or feel. In moments like this though, all you can do is recognised that life has closed that door because at the end of the dark alleyway, at the end of this cold, ruthless and heartless place, there is an open door waiting for your next chapter.
We naturally want to resist this, but it simply is the case that perhaps you are meant to go down a different path. A path with more life and light. A better path that leads you to places more incredible than you could ever imagine.
If the original door re-opens, then perhaps it's your turn to go back. However, even children go out to play before being called back home!
The most important thing to consider as one closes is look at the opportunities life gives you right now. Look at the love of the universe and how it feeds you everything you need to proceed and exceed what you thought was possible. Life, God and Universe are so much more wise and powerful than you could ever imagine and you would do better trusting in the wisdom of such power over your own!
Strengthen your faith and don't let your own ego get in the way of such a beautiful life that is ahead of you. Trust, ask and the universe will provide... after all... you are the universe too!
I wish to publically declare thanks to friends, contacts, colleagues, neighbours and everyone and anyone else I have and continue to interact with. You have shaped my life and many continue to do so.
Thank you for such love and I look forward to what life brings moving forward trusting in things more powerful than me that will get the job done!
To an amazing 2021!!!
Sometimes, a little bit of wisdom can do wonders...
If you are stuck in the same place, simply just start moving anywhere then adjust your direction over time! If you need to move on, move onwards...
Since I decided to start looking up after hitting rock bottom, I have re-expanded my network so much I have ended up talking once again to an old childhood friend who lives in Kansas City, Kansas, USA.
We go back as far as teenage years after meeting on chatroutlette at the time. The talks and conversations we had were insane and she even painted me a lion and sent it to me as part of her art.
The key thing here to comment on is the idea of getting momentum in areas of networking, even if it is just online (thanks COVID), has helped socially.
One question begs to be answered, what else could I get moving with?
I think I need a more thorough battle plan for 2021. I'll get the whiteboard out now, let's go!
