Move On

I can’t go back to who I was because I am a different person now. Lewis Carroll. 

new-door-open-drew-simmie

There comes a point for many of us when events or circumstances give us pause. Intuitively, we sense that it is time to rethink what we’re doing; more importantly why.

We find ourselves at a pivotable point when we can feel a hand on our shoulder and we hear ourselves asking, “Have I got my life right? Could there be more?”

Have you ever been in that situation? I have. I know how challenging that can be.

You are not who you were when you first started out. None of us are.

Subject to the shifting currents, as we make our way through life, we all pass through a number of phases. It is part of the continual growing and learning process. Sometimes it can be a terrifying because it portends change, and change is always scary. But there it is. Staring you in the face.

Not changing, staying longer than necessary is not a good thing. If you  insist on staying past what is the right time you can become dispirited, uninteresting and lose the happiness and meaning of the other stages you have to go through.

Sometimes it is hard, but you can’t write a new chapter in your life until the old one is ended.

Shutting the door behind you, closing cycles, ending chapters – whatever name you give it – is to leave in the past those moments of life that have finished, whatever they are and make the choice to move on.

What Would Bring You Joy?

The minute you begin to do what you really want to do, it’s really a different kind of life. Buckmaster Fuller.

If you could do anything you wanted to do everyday, what would it be? If money, time, health or relationships and anything else were not an issue, how would you spend your time, and with whom?

These are big questions that will take some time to answer, because we all have become accustomed to doing what we have to, instead of what we want to, and have constructed our lives accordingly; but we are in different times now. The pandemic has forced all of us to step back and examine our lives.

So here’s the thing: We all only get one life. Is your current plan the right one? What would it take to create the kind of life you really want to create for yourself?

Hmmm..

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  

I hope to see you here again soon.

Playing The Game

The here and now is all we have and if we play it right, it’s all we need. Ann Richards.

In the game of life, the most important moment is the present moment.

Many of us live out our lives with one eye on the past, a past that’s already gone – and the other on the future, that’s not here yet. Choosing to live in the past or in the future steals your todays and robs you of living to the fullest.

Live forward. Never Look back.

Nobody knows how things will turn out. Give each day your best shot. When you have gone as far as you can go, you’ll know what to do next.

It’s not whether you win or lose, it is how you play the game.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  

I hope to see you here again soon.

The Sun Will Rise Tomorrow

Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain. Vivian Greene.

It’s practically impossible to escape the daily onslaught of fear, negativity and fake news these days. The media is pumping it out 24/7. The constant drum beat of the cable news channels and the internet could take over your whole day, if you let them. Don’t.

The naysayers and doubters would have us believe that we are doomed. We’re not.

Resolve not to give in. As ominous as the sky may look, it is not going to fall.

There are countless people, just like you, daily doing their best, moving ahead and making a difference in their lives and others. They know that better days lie ahead and the sun will rise tomorrow.

It always does.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  

I hope to see you here again soon.

A Fresh Pair Of Eyes

How often I found where I should be going by setting out for somewhere else. Buckmaster Fuller.

young-at-heart-drew-simmie

You are not who you were when you first started out. None of us are. Subject to the shifting currents and vicissitudes of life, as we  live out our own destinies, we all pass through a number of stages, growing into each successive one.

In the daily. constant grind, if you don’t stay focused, it can be all too easy to one day find yourself stuck, looking at the same old picture of life that you’ve diligently painted about yourself, struggling to find the next best step forward.

But here’s the thing. Life isn’t about what you see. It’s about how you see it.

You’ve got lots of time.

In a super-fast landscape, sometimes, to improve the picture, all that is required is a fresh pair of eyes.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.   

I hope to see you back here soon.
