Be an encourager.

In a world that we are more and more led to believe is a big, bad, dark place let’s spread the word of peace, love and light.

While the media likes to portray that there are forces out there that want to divide us in fear. Let us unite against it in love.

Look for reasons to encourage and uplift those around you.

Be an encourager
Complement a stranger. Perform an act of kindness for no other reason than it is the right thing to do.

At our core we are all kind, compassionate beings, capable of great love and deserving of the same.

Let us celebrate and perpetuate that message and in turn we will bring light to the darkness.

Be the light you want to see in the world. Together we can turn things around.

Namaste.

Stop Being So Hard On Yourself

It’s important to sit back and take stock of where you are and how far you have come.

Too often we can become fixated on the next thing we are working on without recognising all that we have already done.

Also know that it is okay to sit and ‘be’ where you are in this moment knowing that you are complete and enough.

It’s easy to get stuck in ‘I’ll be happy or content when…..’ I’m this that or the other.

You are both a work of art and a work in progress all at the same time. °
If you are striving to be the best version of yourself don’t be so hard on yourself because some people aren’t trying at all, so you are way ahead of most.

The pursuit of enhancement is a constant juxtaposition between eagerness and calmness. Learning to master and be okay with this restlessness is the real skill.

You are enough. We are one. You are loved and worthy and deserving of love.

Peace. Namaste.

Growth isn’t just possible. It’s what we are put here on earth to do.

I recently completed a 10k running race. I hadn’t competed in a race for a while and decided to sign up for this one (July 16) and a half marathon which takes place on August 20.

While I had continued to stay fit and run regularly I missed that feeling of following a training plan, going through specific phases of training, getting to an event feeling in top physical condition knowing that you were fully prepared to tackle the event to the best of your ability. It was with this in mind that I decided to enter these events.

I also entered them because there is no better high than that finish line feeling. No training session comes close and it is addictive.

As I have trained and prepared for these races I have also pondered the need for progression. What is it about humans that keeps us striving forward. Knowing that we are working towards a target is what keeps us moving everyday.

Then I watched an address from Rich Roll on Youtube (See it HERE) and it summed it up perfectly for me.

These next few paragraphs are taken from that address.

Growth isn’t just possible. It’s what we are put here on earth to do.

‘Life is not about the destination or the finish line. It is about the journey. If you commit your life entirely to something this will result in one of 2 outcomes either you will succeed or you will die trying. Which is its own form of success. ‘ Casey Niestat.

As much as I love toeing the line or crossing the finish line it is all about the journey. I aspire to my own sense of greatness to push the envelope on what I am capable of. Let go of perfection, detach from results,  be willing to fail and fail and fail again and when all is lost you pick yourself up and go the extra mile.

The limits that we place upon ourselves are mental projections, they are illusions. We must embrace the truth that we are so much more than we allow ourselves to be.

With this comes a sense of meaning and purpose that no other destination can rival. A deep satisfaction that your life has value that goes beyond the illusion of security and comfort over the priceslessness of adventure and experience. (end excerpt)

Thus, I have concluded that it is not about the medals or accolades for me any longer. If I finish a race I don’t keep the shirt or the medal. I’ve thrown out all my previous finishers medals. Now it is only about the pursuit of perfection for myself. Knowing that each day I am striving to be a better person in many facets of my life. Not just physically but emotionally, spiritually and mentally as well. I am by no means perfect (nobody is) but I am trying to be better day by day, and that is all that we can do.

So I urge you to start to evaluate your life. Start to live deliberately and intentionally instead of passively or apathetically. There are so many was that you can live an intentional life, you can start to listen to your intuition more and the internal guidance system that is steering you towards a purpose that is of greater value to yourself and to others.

I’m not talking about purpose in a new-agey, go out and change the world sort of way, I’m just talking about a way of life that best suits you, that is true to you, that you feel resonates with you and you are truly in tune with.

So many of us live lives that are so out of tune with our true rhythm that we douse ourselves in numbing activities (tv, bad food, alcohol, trashy gossip mags, negativity, etc.) to try and drown out that constant nudge from our intuition that ultimately has our best intentions at heart.

When you start to go in the direction that you are being pulled, rather than being pushed, this allows you to be of more value to yourself and to those around you. You can show up in a new light that was once dimmed and you can shine for all the world to see.

Peace. Namaste.

Give it away and it will come back to you

This blog is inspired by the recent Rich Roll Podcast that I listened to and was inspired to write and and act. Listen to it HERE

This was an amazing conversation between Scott Harrison and @richroll

I felt so moved and was inspired to act immeditely! It seems crazy to me that nearly a billion people go without clean water everyday. There are people that have to walk 8 hours a day just to get clean water and when they get back still have to cook, clean and raise a family. So the time you spent at work someone was walking just to get water.

I had a birthday recently and in the last few years I have been less and less inclined to celebrate it or to ask for gifts, for there was nothing I really needed that I couldn’t for myself. After listening to this podcast I have since donated my age in dollars to the charity. $34 is enough to provide clean water to 1 human. I have also committed to $10/month to this charity also.

When you think about it $10 a month is nothing. It’s your subscription to Netflix or Spotify or similar. It’s 2 coffees a week. Can you do without it?

I’ve always been reluctant to donate due to scepticism about how much actually gets to the intended cause. But with charity water 100% of donations go to the field to bring clean water to those in need. So I had no hesitation in donating.

I have also set up a campaign to raise 10x my age in aid of this great cause. If you would like to donate their is a link in my bio. After listening to this podcast I have no decided to pledge all future birthdays to this cause. Click HERE if you wish to donate.

Additionally I will be foregoing all Christmas presents and instead asking for donations because really there is nothing I feel the need to ask for. Knowing that I am making a difference in the lives of others would give me far greater satisfaction.

I urge you to listen to this podcast and to evaluate your life to look for areas that you can help this, or any great cause or those around you in general.

Let’s get out of this mentality of just looking out for ourselves, this ‘get mine’ mindset and instead ask how can we give more.

Peace. Namaste.
