Life is a marathon. An ultra-marathon. Imagine, we are carrying big heavy suitcases while we are running. We need to reach the destination in a specified time. And these suitcases won’t help. It can drag you. Even a light backpack would not help during a marathon which tests your endurance. We need to wear the right gear to get ahead. The best running shoes, sweat absorbent wear, and disciplined preparation.
Many of us live in the past. We think too much about why it happened the way it happened to us. Thinking too much can suck the energy from our soul. We are left like lifeless and passionless people soaked in the randomness of life. Our life demands extra-ordinary kind of power from within, not only to endure things – but also to appreciate and celebrate.
It is important to occasionally unload the baggage. What do we do with the domestic waste at home? Piled up unproductive and wasteful emotions need to be disposed of too. The more it stays, it takes away the soul’s energy. What a struggle to live with unproductive emotions. We love nurturing the past within us. We tell ourselves stories about us. Most of them are your versions of the reality. The fight we had with the chances when we couldn’t work on our own choices. What matters is the constant unloading of ‘life stories we tell ourselves’ which is not helping us to move forward.
Deciding to be a victim is the easiest thing to do. Deciding to do positive action is hard. Our brain chooses the least path to resistance. It needs the willpower to decide for positive action irrespective of all the ‘mind fuckedness’. And willpower takes a lot of energy from us. And that is why 95% of people do not do that. What we need is a system which will ensure we focus on positive action. Good people who are not from your past can help. They do not judge you. They do not write you off. They see you as a fresh person with fresh possibility. And that can help to rewire the stories about you, you told yourself a thousand times. As humans, we crave for validation and acceptance. It is difficult to get that constantly from your long-term allies, friends or family. They take us for granted.
Make new friends. Gradually and interestingly.
Zero judgment. High validation. That is what we love.
It is an opportunity for you to be a new you.
