I wrestled with this idea for a long time because I thought that I was changing. But in fact, I was just shifting mediums to convey my truth.
What cripples us the most is imagined fear
Your life is your masterpiece. You can always paint hues of happiness IN and AROUND it.
We were once kids, once happy with just a piece of candy or a handful of chocolate. How did our happiness become so expensive? I wonder.
What ruins the present is our resistance to it.
With every decision comes uncertainties and unknowns we are risking to take. But as they say, it’s all part of the great adventure we call life.
Subtract anything that doesn’t add value to your life. It could be temporary or permanent. More is not always better.

The idea of uprooting called me out. Perhaps it’s what you’ve been doing your entire life too.
I don’t want to wander aimlessly through life, not knowing where I wanna go, not doing what I need to do. I don’t want to waste a lot of years trying to get by an ordinary existence.
This, is my ideal stance. Reality however was a bit different.
I enjoyed myself too much in the past. Most days were spent reacting to things instead of taking charge. This went on and on through my late twenties. I thought I would grow old just like that- a byproduct of luck. Then circumstances changed – –
loved ones lost,
career took place,
people moved on and chased their own big dreams,
while I got stuck in my own little world trying to hold it together.
I loved the idea of things being constant, unchanging and predictable. I resisted everything that atttempted to disturb my familiar state. I guess we all did at one point in time. We built our own walls and thought it will never crumble only to realize we’re actually disrupting our own growth.
When you stay too long in what’s comfortable, you start to feel just like that, comfortable-
too afraid to see the outside world,
too afraid to try anything new,
too afraid to start again,
to afraid to rebuild something from scratch.
Is this really all? Aren’t we made for something more?
Divine discontent is experienced by most of us. It’s that subtle sense of unrest that’s aching for something true and real to a person and his very existence. When it hits you, don’t ignore. Know what it wants to communicate and act on it. Ultimately, it will connect you to a divine purpose. And that purpose can only be served by no one else, but you!
