Contemplating Life Past – Living Life by Your Terms
Some days we sit back and contemplate our life don’t we? (well more so when we get a little older and we wonder where all those years have gone.
I looked at the date today and realised that I married my first wife 35 years ago today! It is simply the time elapsed since then that I was remembering and what I have achieved in those 35 years, culminating on where I am now.
Circumstances and events may have depleted me of certain physical assets and financial security. Yet I believe through this process, I have enriched my life. I have secured who I am, who I want to be and who I wish to share my life with. It is only then that you realise that society has indoctrinated us all into believing that success and happiness is based on this false economy of earn more, spend more, buy more and repeat!.
You can’t buy happiness. It is a state of mind and I have that happiness. It is shared with someone very special. And I choose to share my life with others who have stumbled upon the same conclusion.
Know this! The choice is yours if you choose to stand up and make that choice! So make your choice and live the life you wish to live. Not how others think you should live it.
“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do” ~ Rumi ~
And furthermore, promise me this! Feel the true richness of life from deep within your heart and not some superficial icing on life that we have been brainwashed into believing. Therefore, seek what is within as the Universe is within you! Thus feel the warmth and you shall find it there!
And most importantly, stop and think for a moment longer. This so called ‘norm’ has really only been in existence for the last 60 years or so and sponsored by the corporate Western world and their preachers, the politicians.
Life is a compromise at times but never compromise your true values and the richness of life itself…….
