Gaining Trust

It’s so easy to let the troubles of the world get to us. We can become worried, anxious and depressed. Thinking that we have made too many mistakes.

Locked in the past, we are unable to move forward.

Without growth, we become unhappy, unaware of what went wrong.

A lot of our problems in life is when we become too attached to our feelings. It’s essential in these moments to connect with nature to let go, trusting that the ideas, the inspiration, the right people will show up to help us on our way.

Keep trusting and moving forward. 🙂

Does Worry Ends Where Faith Begins?

DI WORRY ENDS

Worry has a way of consuming us; one thought leads to another, then the next thing you know the thoughts have turned to a feeling. You no longer feel good; there is tension in your stomach; you’re unable to eat.

“A few drinks will calm me down,” you say to yourself, it does take the pain away but now if the worry returns you’re in such a more heightened state. Your thoughts will be on overdrive.

When we are worried faith can be the last thing we want to think about, but that is when you need faith the most. Some people will say, but it’s not that easy, you can’t just wish worry away, and yes they are right.

So do this instead, ask yourself this, Is there anything I can do to relieve the worry?

If yes, then do it as soon as possible, ask for help if need be.

If the answer is no, no matter what you do, it will not change the outcome. Why worry?

 

 

Acceptance Is the Key to Inner Growth and Happiness

Accept This Moment as it is

No one was ready for what just happened to this world, but we have two options. We can question what happened or accept it.

The first leads to worry doubt and fear; the second leads to love, belief and faith.

The second option is the one that I recommend. Love belief and faith leads to creativeness. You start to look at all the available possibilities.

How many times have you heard people say “I wish I didn’t have to come to work?” Well, for most of us that dream has come through. This is a rare chance to start something new. To revisit some passions that you might have left behind. Now, you can learn almost any skill from the comfort of your living room.

Each day we must choose acceptance, or our fears will pull us in, resulting in turning on the news. Yes, it’s good to be informed, but with most countries given a 12-week quarantine, the positive changes from one day to the next are going to be minimal at best.

The more that we allow the negativity to affect our spirit, the more unhappy we will be. Learning to let go of what we can’t control is the secret to a happy life.

Each of us has a unique gift that few of us ever discover or explore. Now is our moment to reflect and go within. Acceptance is the key to letting all the fear and stress drain away. What is out of our control we can’t change anyway.

So, to all those who are getting bored and frustrated. Accept that this is the way it is. Your destiny has brought you to this point.

What is life trying to teach us, is the question we all should be pondering!

We have an opportunity that we should be grabbing with both hands; there is a wealth of knowledge only a click away, that you can immerse yourself in to come out of this better than you went in.

So, let’s start accepting what has happened and let our creativeness flow, and celebrate the little joys and pleasures that life entrusts us with!

Thank you!!

Make A Commitment to your Crazy Dream; It Could Change The World

Just do it is probably one of the most recognisable slogans there is. It is a direct command. Sometimes that is what we need. Someone to say,  just do it.

I can only speak for myself, but I often think about doing something for weeks or even months before I start.

We all have things that we would like to do, things that would improve our mental and physical health, but we talk ourselves out of it with excuses.

Starting is the hardest part. Attending that first meeting or making that first phone call, or puting them running shoes on for the first time. Once that is out of the way though, it’s so much easier to follow through.

So, whatever you have been putting off for weeks, months, or even years. Take the first step today. Send the email, make the call. Invest in some running gear. it could be as simple as getting some information.

What holds most people back is they get a burst of faith and decide to climb a mountain before they have walked a mile.

 

I will use weight as a relatable example.

If you want to lose 10 pounds, eating nothing but salads and milkshakes is not a good starting point. You might keep it up for a week, but chances are you will crash and end up upset which will lead to binge eating and ending up heavier than before.

Instead, start by replacing the slice of cake with a handful of nuts and an orange. Park the car 10 minutes away from work; a few small changes like this will get better results.

Then, when you see the improvement, it will give you the faith that you can do better. So, you slowly cut out unhealthy foods and replace them with healthier options.

Most challenges that we face can be broken down into a series of steps. And when you do this, the challenge seems more manageable; fearful thoughts change to thoughts of faith, which in turn shift to feelings of accomplishment when you start completing each step.

Now, instead of a vicious circle of fear leading to worry and doubt, you have a circle of faith, expanded awareness, and peace of mind.

Whatever is the main thing that is holding you back take the first step today, just do it. And remember that one small step forward is better than staying where you are.

Enjoy your week.
