EASY LIFE…OR PURPOSEFUL LIFE? #IYP ‘Longevity’
Life is what You make it, Life is like a Box of chocolates, Life is just life…blessings!
Good day beautiful people, do you know how much I love being able to do this…as always I thank you for taking the time to read this little rant of mine! So I want to start this off with the conversations I had this last week with 2 individuals that have been very positive influences in my life, and are absolutely amazing people in general they both come from different worlds so the statement was the type that “MAKES YOU GO HUMMMM”
The first conversation was based on a vacation that was taken by my friend whom has an amazing grasp on the mind, body, soul relationship as well as life/work balance to mindfullness and knowledge of self and his mind. He also knows his purpose and why he was put on this earth…so this conversation was not just “talk or venting” it came from a very deep place. So while he took his ‘get away’ to heal himslef, make sure he was well reseted and relaxed his plan was to be away for around one month, which turned into two, then three. He was obviously truly enjoying his time and who ever he had been interactiong with and loved the area, so he just kept pushing off his plane ride home. On the one hand this was much needed as his area of work is very body, mind and energy consuming and one of the only ways to get away from it… is to get away from it! To decompress, focus on other things, new experiences, new friends, new moments…you know the story.
So when it was finally time to come home, I was able to chat with him and ask the questions of how he was able to push his vacation that long, how he was able to stay away from his work that long, and what happened for him to make the decision to stay and then come back, because for a while I thought ‘is this guy really going to come back?’. Again this was a deep level conversation we went into different layers of conciseness to understand where all the ideas and decisions came from and how the final understanding came about. The first part was about ‘reality’ he had gotten away from his own version of it for a while and obviously was enjoying his new reality, yet he questioned if what he had been doing for the last 3 months served his more meaningful purpose, he was offered work there and could have stayed if he wanted. He also knew he was worth the time off and the loss of income because it served his health to which he could continue to serve others. The new reality would have been an easy easy life, on the beach living very very inexpensively and maybe only having to work 2 days a week no real worries no real responsibility. I thought that it was an amazing offer, how could you NOT do that.
This is where we went deep and this also is the point where the other conversation I had this week comes into the exact same play. So and maybe you sexy mofo’s reading this can relate when you do a get away because at some point there is only so much of ‘DOING NOTHING’ you can actually do before you get board…I mean honestly we need a purpose to get out of bed in the morning and to fulfill that purpose everyday is meaningful it’s why I think we are here on this phucking amazing planet and another reason I think so many are unhappy is because they don’t either go after their purpose or they give up on it, or they allow someone else to take care of them so they don’t need or have purpose. Ok back to the ‘real talk’ so the talk got quiet and the energy changed he went quiet and said to me in a very low tone ; ‘I could have very easily stayed, but that would have only served myself…and I know I am here to serve and be of services to others’! Selflessness …DAMN!!
I am sure self awareness played a part in this decision to know who you are and what you want in life is imperative as well the countless hours of mediation and reflection while in utter peace with no stress helps one come to these type of ansewer..so understand this is not a overnight thing or a 5 minutes later after asking the question type thing. Yet on the flip side it is true your gut instinct always knows what your higher self is moving towards!
The other conversation was very similar it was between two of my friends who are in their mid 40’s currently and they spoke on how they felt they were at a point in life (maybe the mid life thing maybe not) and they wanted to get off the wheel or out of the matrix. They spoke of the downsize the selling off of numerous items so they could basicly relax and not need to really go out and earn money like they use to. Maybe head somewhere their money went further type deal just travel and take it easy. I thought maybe at some point for me when I got to that age I would feel the same way because it really did sound like a good plan, I mean I was like sign me up.
Yet because I have been blessed with the learning of self awearness and mindfullness I was able to just sit with this conversation and really take in the nuances of what was not being said and there was 3 things or questions that came into my mind; the first -were they happy with what they did to make money? the next was- that the thought process they had came from a place where they only served themself and not a bigger picture -and the last one was if you are following your purpose and passion and had the awareness of work life balance would this ever even come up in your mind? My thought was NO — I mean we are human so we are all going to have our off days but in the end its selflessness over selfishness
I urge you to truly sit back and reflect on your talents, passions, and purpose- never let your inner fire die…never choose the easy life- you may wake up one day full of regret and anger
Thank you as always and talk to u soon! Let’s spread these positive vibes
