For many years I have been searching for the ‘right’ way to live. The ‘right’ way to treat my self and my body, and guess what, it is a never ending search because I have been looking for the wrong things.
I needed to find out what it was, that I REALLY searching for. What I felt I was missing in my life.
When I realised what it was I was actually not surprised. What it was that I was searching for, was happiness and a sense of peace and calm inside my mind and body.
I first recently discovered Ali – the perception trainer on YouTube, and she really has some interesting and very honest opinions about happiness and the way you percept your self, and she gives you tools to look deeper into your mind and search for the REAL you and the reasons why you feel like you are searching for something, and never quite know why or how to get where you want to be.
For some weeks now I have been trying to understand why I workout, and why I feel unsatisfied with my self. Why there is no periods in my life, where I’m truly happy. Why is that?
Still not there yet, but the awareness is the first step for me to actually learn more on my self, and when I am aware, many of my habits during the day, I question them when they appear and try to find out why I have them. Not just accepting, but trying to find the reasons why they are there and change them if necessary. NOT easy, but it does really works. When I’m aware, they suddenly get visible and then it is possible for me to do something about it.
So for me this has been a important personal journey about finding the reasons why I am me, and why I do the things I do. It has been an important journey because I need to understand my self, and remove the things in my life, that doesn’t bring my joy and happiness.
Dear reader, please know that it is very personal for me, and knowing that this is bringing myself out there for good and for bad. Understand that why I bring this into the open, is because I feel this is important not only for me, but for us all. I meet people every day (family, friends and strangers) and know that we all want the same thing. To love and feel loved. To feel accepted, and to accept ourselves. I’m ok – you are ok – kinda thing 🙂 Don’t try to be other than yourself. And if you feel deep inside you, that YOU are ok just the way you are, then everybody else will feel the same about you. Be your best friend, and talk to yourself like if you talked to your best friend.
This is a lot to take in, I know. But just keep it in mind. It makes perfectly sense when you are AWARE of all this. Then it will hit you, how often this happens during a day. Not saying that we are not allowed to feel unhappy or sad, but just be aware. Listen to what your mind and body will tell you. There is so much wisdom in there to understand.
