I found this post in my “random” folder on my personal computer. I can’t believe I wrote this at some point and decided not to post it. When I reread this post months after I wrote it, I can feel the passion I had when I wrote it. Normally when I write posts, I edit about 50 times before publishing. For this post, I’m not going to edit to ensure I don’t lose the emotional drive behind it.
I hear it all of the time – wish the life you want. Think about what you want in this world, and live that life.
I say, forget that. Accept what is. Accept what you already have. Appreciate what you already have. Live life to learn and love. Stop wishing or thinking about the things you want. Just be open to receive whatever comes your way. That’s what you need to do.
If you want to attract a better life, ask yourself, what the hell does a better life look like? What image did you create in your mind of a better life? Are you looking at other people’s lives? Are you looking at what other people define as success?
Accept what is. Acceptance. It’s an important quality of a free spirit. Don’t live in a fantasy world where you think you conjure up the things you want in this life. Accept where you are in this moment of life.
Wherever you are in this world, just accept it. Don’t regret where you are, and don’t anticipate something better happening. Be happy where you are.
Once you realize you have all that you need, then you are truly free from the outside world. You will never find yourself wanting more. You will find yourself hording less. You don’t look at other people’s lives and say, “I wish I had what he has”. No, there’s no need for any of that.
