We are so lucky!

imageI feel so blessed as I honestly have everything I want. Sometimes it strikes an inner fear of losing what I have. I could have been located in war zones, unsafe, hostile places with hardly any human rights. Do we ever forget that we’re actually so blessed? Yet, I just want to be really humble and when I think that I’m so blessed and get these little butterflies from inside, I think “it’s too much for me” and I start to feel guilty as there is so much power in my hands.

Then, I get people who think I’m waaaay too lucky, a girl with a nice house, rich, beautiful, has cool, young looking parents and no siblings (always a plus). And I’m like wait… Half these things are not even true. They say “your life is so perfect, I wish I had a mum or dad like you” “I can’t believe you wear make-up, you make me feel so ugly because you’re already beautiful” “I want your life, I want your body”. All these comments make me feel so guilty and I’m constantly being labelled upon how I superficially look like. You should actually be me to really know what my life is like, but then I think, wait, maybe they’re right. My life really is perfect, and if anyone looks in it, they wouldn’t find a flaw. In fact, the only flaw in any life is the person, because the person is the one who chooses how to see their own life.

Everyone on earth gets something if they actually seek something. We all come to this life with a certain amount of gifts and blessings, whether it’s a piece of bread or a giant palace. Don’t look at what others have, not because you can’t properly judge their lives, but because you should be busy enough with yours. No matter how much you compare yourself to someone, nothing will change, but the time that passes away in which YOU could have changed something in your life. Time is not just money, time is energy, time is growing, and time is learning. It’s all about the actions you take, if you want money, Google ‘how to start my own business’ NOW, if you want to change the way your body looks, stop researching and start moving your body. If you want to become an inspiration, live genuinely and honestly and seek to improve yourself, not others. Because the truth is, everyone’s an inspiration, and I learn something from every single person I’ve met and always will.

I didn’t make this blog so I can be labelled as an ‘inspiration’, or to ‘change lives’, I made it to express my inner feelings as I grow. I am a normal person who isn’t perfect, who makes mistakes, and can be mean (sometimes). So in no way should me or my life be labelled as ‘perfect’. Yet, I am thankful for myself and everything I have.

DSC_0136I’m alright, but I feel empty, I feel like something’s missing. I had a tough time at school during exams, exam after exam, I’d go home, empty my mind and input new information in it. But after it’s all finished – I kind of miss it. I miss actually doing something or taking over a task, and going to school for the right reason. After it’s over, I actually feel cold as everyone who’s close to me is somehow far away. My bonding with people I love isn’t as strong as it usually is. I feel vulnerable but in the safest place on Earth. I watch the news and cry at innocent people suffering, who are so strong and experience the toughest of memories and I think “I could have been born there”. Why am I so lucky? I have everything yet I feel empty. A lot of things are kind of at the same time – ultimate decision making on what I’d like to study next year and I have no idea what I want to do in the future. Everyone’s telling me something different, “take English”, “maths is too hard”, and all I want to do is be like the good old days, where I just leave school, work, and rise up. But now, I have to have qualifications. But what? I have aims. I want to help people and make a positive impact on people’s lives, sounds so cliche, I know. But, I seriously, believe more than anything that I will do something highly successful. Not because I’m so self indulgent, but because I have a real, powerful drive to do so. My emotions drive me like a rocket, they enable me to succeed, be strong and ensures that nothing gets in my way. Persistence, but also stubbornness is the most powerful tool for success, the most successful people in history ‘failed’, yet their success came out of stubbornness and an inner passion to achieve. Since the World Cup is on, in my eyes, the difference between a great player and a normal player is one that can dribble the ball from one end of the pitch to the other and score a goal due to their aims being energetically aligned with their body and inner power that makes them unstoppable.

What, if anything, makes you so persistent, or stubborn that you’re so unstoppable?

 

Consistency

Consistency is one of the keys to reaching your goals – whether it’s a health/fitness goal, a studying goal or just a new habit to get into. How many times do you start something, just lose track of it and forget it? When you started eating healthily and just thought, “Agh…forget it”, or when you wrote that study timetable and never looked at it again.

Why does that happen?

  • Maybe you are not fully focused on your goal. You need to set a strong intention on why you want it and how you are going to get there.
  • Maybe that goal is not actually what you want. Have you fully researched and understood what you are really looking for?
  • Consistency! It can be a habit to get into, you are not just going to automatically eat healthily everyday or stick to that things to do list. You take it step by step. You listen to your body and move at your own pace.

So… if you are trying to adjust your eating, and find that piece of cake staring at you, it is okay to eat it. As long as you don’t make it a consistent habit. Doing those workouts once won’t get you results right that second, so don’t keep looking in the mirror every 5 minutes. It needs consistency, time, and patience. My goal is to develop my consistency!
