Sometimes, we think our issue is because of the external factors.
But, for things to change in our external word, maybe you need to check what is going on with you internally?
Are you happy when you are with yourself? Sometimes, we are so focused on future possibilities that we fail to check in with ourselves in this present moment.
And we keep telling ourselves that we will be happy if….
✨i get the job
✨when he/she loves me back
✨if i get the car that i want
✨if i earn millions
But, what if you don’t get them?
So, you are not happy?
See, basing our happiness on external factors won’t fill you up.
While we enjoy the good and luxurious things, basing our happiness on them is not entirely the answer.
Even if you change partners, look for new jobs, transfer to new locations, move out, you will be bringing yourself with you. It’s like attempting to change the image of the mirror without changing the one being reflected on. 💕
When you see something in your external world, check internally.
Did you ever notice whenever there is a problem…. you are always involved?
Because, you are part of the problem. And part of the situation and unless we take full responsibility instead of blaming it on other people… there wont be change.
Shit does hit the fan. I make mistakes all the freakin time! But, I don’t beat myself up for weeks or years and torment myself whenever I make a mistake. I suck it up. Laugh about my stupidity. Own it. Change it.
That is your power. Don’t give it to the externals.
“The results of the intervention depends upon the inner condition of the intervenor.” – Bill O’Brien
Our outer world reflects our inner world 🌎.
For things to change in your life.. it does require effort. You do not get it overnight.
Sometimes you get it, sometimes you don’t. One day you totally get everything, the next day you get confused.
But, you do your best and be present anyway.
