More than ever there have been times I’ve had discussions with friends and associates in both personal and casual settings about how we are feeling about the progressive movement of our lives. I think we all have those times when we feel stagnant and that things are not moving fast enough towards our goals or that opportunities are not presenting themselves in the way we have envisioned. You want that career achievement, that financial success, to meet that someone special, and it seems just out of reach.
Well, that is where your strength supports you and you break through the obstacles that are in your way. You have the courage which has gotten you this far. You have stepped up and into a space of confidence and knowledge and just need a little encouragement and insight or wisdom to unstick you.
Being wise is a mental, emotional, and spiritual growth characteristic that is achieved by observing and living through life’s experiences. There are shortcuts to wisdom. Taking advice from those who have reached the highly respected Wise label is an easier route to understanding life’s puzzle. It can soften and sometimes avoid pain and disappointments of actually living through some experiences.
Claiming to have a degree in the hard knocks of life is no shield from repetitive experiences of failure or defeat, but a little advice can help you course correct in your journey for a smoother arrival.
“Resilience is evidence of courage, strength and wisdom.”
Dr. Kat Smith
You’ve Got This!
You’ve shown the:
Courage: the ability to stand up for what you want and choose change. The heart to step out from your safety zone and go after your dreams and goals.
Strength: the power to endure and stay on course with your focus or vision for the life or career you desire
Now I share some of the:
Wisdom: to help us be mindful enough and open up and learn from our mistakes and those of others and develop our resilience. Moving forward and gaining knowledge and skill to grow and prosper.
In closing, “The tragedy of life is often not in our failure, but rather in our complacency; not in our doing too much, but rather in our doing too little; not in our living above our ability, but rather in our living below our capacities.” – Benjamin E. Mays.
Thoughts, ideas and dreams can remain on hold without action and the application of emotion.
And though we may have heard the comment “Opinion are like buttholes. Everyone has one” – the previous advice is an opinion derived from experience and expertise. You can take it or leave it. Unstick yourself from the insanity. It’s your choice – You are free to do things over and over again or you can learn from others and reach a different outcome. Which is a wise decision.
Self Imposed Friendship Responsibility
Welcome to a New Series of posts I am branding as EVOLution. Evolving in love. I woke up this morning with a renewed sense of freedom. A weight had been lifted. I have shared before that we as humans have a tendency to talk ourselves into relationships and that includes friendships. Once there we self-impose responsibilities for those people. We take responsibility for maintaining the friend/relationship even if it is not a healthy one. We tell ourselves, “Oh that is just him/her.” We overlook behaviors like selfishness or neediness and allow them to treat us in ways that don’t quite settle right in our spirit. Well, I use the quote by Maya Angelou, “When people show you who they are believe them.” Someone I had known for around…
