Leftover

Hey all,

Even though the thought of having leftovers seems to have a negative connotation, for most dishes leftovers seem to taste better in my opinion. Maybe it is because the flavor settled or maybe I didn't appreciate the flavor the first time. I'm starting to look at life that way. How many of us would risk it all to find our authentic selves? Meaning how many would give up our current way of life, the money, cars, and job for a chance to discover ourselves? How many would be satisfied with what is leftover after you get rid of glamour around stuff.

It can be difficult to grasp but, we are not our money, we are not the stuff we accumulated, we are not our jobs. We were probably much happier before we accumulated that stuff we thought would enhance our lives and our identity.

It took me a while to figure out that none of that stuff truly made me happy. Instead of being happy with myself I wanted what others had. Now, I am on a spiritual journey to help others through my purpose,  and as I continue to shed the money. my stuff, and ego. I am learning that what is leftover (my true self) is much better than the other versions of me.

Offense

Hello all,

I decided to look back at my life and how I have made decisions in my life. I realized that many of the decision I have made have been defensive or made out of fear. For example my former career, although I moved up swiftly through the ranks was chosen initially because I knew I could do it and I needed money fast. Often, my short term decisions were made out of fear and defensively, ultimately turning into decisions I was unhappy about long term.

Normally at this time I am solely focused on an external goal like career advancement, a raise, or diet etc, however this year my main focus is on an internal goal. I want to go on the offense this year and make decisions out of love. Love is the only reason I had the courage to chase my dreams. Love is the reason why I have the courage to put myself out their even if I may be ridiculed. And Love will be the reason why I will look back at my life and be satisfied. So I guess my goal is to Love the hell out of this year.
