When opinions count more than you think

Today you went to the grocery store and these ladies gave you the look of death. They started whispering and giggling, as you passed by you heard them talking about the guy who keeps coming to your apartment. It’s funny how they say that you should get married and stop being promiscuous. The funnier thing is that they have no clue that it’s your brother. In the end, it’s none of their business, yet they would do anything today to see you frown and have sad face.

If you think a bit about it, their attitude shows that they are jealous of you. They wish they had that chance with a man who cares about them and makes them feel good.  Since they can’t have it, they are mad and when they see someone else happy, it’s when they try to do anything to see that happiness being broken into pieces. By keeping that in mind, you save your sanity for the day.

It happens everywhere, at home, at work, even with the social transportation. Someone will whisper something or they will stare at you cos they don’t like the way you look. If you feel offended and uncomfortable, it means that you don’t accept yourself for who you are and what you do. Don’t be afraid to be unique, don’t be afraid to be different. It’s your right and no one can take it away from you.

As for all these opinions, you have power to mute them in your mind. Don’t let them poison you. You know better what is good for you. Love yourself, be yourself, be happy and smile always!

Travel in your mind or in your heart?

How many times have you wished that you could leave everything behind, grab the first plane and go to another country? It’s the lonely nights after a stressful day, after a confusing relationship or it’s just a challenge for you to see how you can change your life after all. You wish you had the strength to say some things but again you feel something making your throat closing. So you just avoid it for the time being. As you lay on the bed, you keep daydreaming, thinking of all these places you could visit or just your favorite destination. The culture, the new people, maybe a new flirt over there and away from all these people whom you don’t like. Leaving all the problems behind as you keep visualizing more vividly this ticket in your hand.

How about trying to use your heart instead of your mind while you see yourself leaving your city? What do you feel? How others will be effected by that? Do you care? Are you scared? Try to set up the scene again. You at the airport holding your ticket tight in your hand, some moments before you get in the plane. Your heart is racing but this time is different. You are not alone. The emotions lead you to a different mindset. Eventually you will have to face everyone now. Remember that you play safe though, it’s just in your mind. If you are 5% hurt for example, now think what it will happen if you do this for real. Maybe you are not sure what it’s gonna happen but at least you have an idea what might happen. There are people out there who really care about you, before you make such a decision. Keep that in mind, yes?

Boredom or something else?

Although you are busy lately, you must admit that when it comes to do things for yourself, you are bored. You don’t feel like going out, you prefer to be a coach potato sitting in front of your TV and watch random shows. The phone rings but you just ignore it. Too bored to talk to your friend even. People keep asking you what’s wrong but you just reply “bored” and then you turn your back. Sit back and rewind. When did this start happening? Have you thought that under boredom it could be an emotional issue, fear or even crashed ego? By avoiding it, you don’t solve the problem. On the other hand, you just make it worse. How many times you’ve been in a situation in where you didn’t want to fight cos you thought it was pointless again and again? Do you remember when you exploded after a long time? The exact same thing happens when you ignore your issues.

If you your next question is “what I do?” or just shrug saying “I can do nothing about that”, you get to the apathy stage aka boredom. So actually you do know what is going, you just don’t want to deal with the issue. If you don’t find the strength to fight for yourself, no one will fight for you. Even if you complain to your friends, you ask for their advice or even go to a professional, it will never work if you are not ready to do the big step. What is going to happen, is the people who care about you keep repeating themselves and when you go back home, you just ignore what they said. By playing the victim, it leads nowhere, in fact you will start pushing people way. Believe in yourself, love yourself and get out of this boredom. Life is beautiful cos you make it beautiful, never forget that!

Nature Consciousness – Do you remember?

This  morning while I was reading the news, I stumbled upon articles about recycling, nature but something didn’t sound right to me. So I decided to read one of the articles more carefully, the words that kept popping were “have to”, “must” “should” so right away I felt obliged. Really? If me, you and everyone cares about the nature, is it out of obligation or out of love? It’s not about being aware of the global problems, it’s not about the solutions either since eventually something has to be done so as this planet will be safe. It’s about how all this  is our consciousness already and we have to remember. It’s our duty to take care this planet but out of love. Then fear mongering starts as how earth is about to fall apart and how we all have to protect it. So till now, solar plexus and root chakra are involved. Where is the heart chakra?

Where is the compassion? Where is the love? Where is the caring nature of humans? Do you remember how it is to be one the animals, with the trees, with the oceans? If you close your eyes, can you feel earth’s frequencies? You were never in the position to decide if you had to be an earth guardian. It was the same as when you were eating and sleeping. When you start considering something natural an obligation, it’s when you know that you start breaking off its consciousness. I won’t get in the blame game, who’s fault is it. I will hold your hand and walk with you barefoot in the forest. I will sit next to you while listening to the ocean’s waves. I love you, do you?
