It’s a new day for all of us, A pleasant Wednesday in May. We British now are looking ahead to the summer which historically has been July and August. But please note that in the last 5 years summer has been May and June, then the Kids break up and down comes the rain and it’s not typically tropical.
So Carpe Diem, especially the sunny Diem’s, because if we wait for better days they often do not appear. So parents get your camping stuff and BBQ’s at the ready and as soon as the sunny, slightly warmish day/weekend turns up – do your holidaying. Even if you put the tent up in the back garden !!! Just do it.
After this week’s terrible happening in Manchester, it is a possible wake up call to us all to live NOW, because this really is our time – our only time. Don’t want to be morbid but I know the feeling of having Life cut short and lucky me – I’m still here but I really want to wake up to what Living actually is.
What do we want to do?
What do we want to achieve?
Do we long to walk on sandy beaches?
Would we love to go to the countryside with a picnic?
Give some thought to what you actually do want. Step outside of the normality of your life and just think… How about me?
It’s not selfish to want to do stuff for yourself, often it can bring joy to others – they may not understand your wanting a Cabin in the Garden, or a narrow boat to play on? But then do you understand them wanting to play golf ?
I pushed to get a cabin and a boat.. Because it dawned on me that I wanted to be me and that other people not understanding fully who I was was nothing to do with me… I had to stick my neck out and get what I wanted. Now is that being selfish?
I sit here at my vintage writing bureau (which I didn’t even ask if I could buy) I just went and got it…. But it’s all fine. Because the more I realise that I can be me, the better my relationship with the world is. Not being you brings you unhappiness and frustration. So work it out for yourself. What do you want.
You may say, I can’t afford to do the things I want to do. Then down scale to what you can afford and expect to do the expensive things when the money comes to you.
Do expect the money to come to you. Expect great things. Expect Wonderful things. Know that your life is unfolding exactly as it should.
You have no need to worry, No need to stress.
Go to places in your mind. Sit on the bench in the nature reserve, your garden, or yard. Spend some time alone clearing your head of thoughts of what other people expect from you.
Give yourself the time
Time is a gift
Gift it to you today
As I sit here and look up I would not have been about to visualise such a lovely cabin in my garden but now I have achieved this what else can I see, what future will I have?
Whatever happens to me in the future, I know that I have come through other stuff with flying colours. And I will again.
But right now. I am a millionaire, in my mind I can have whatever I want. I can see it, I can feel it. I know my Now is good and my next Now’s are awesome.
Keep yourself up there my good friends.
