Never Stop Trying To Learn

“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose up sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.”
~Tony Schwartz

Taming The Wandering Mind — March 20, 2020

Taming The Wandering Mind


Dare to dream! If you did not have the capability to make your wildest wishes come true, your mind would not have the capacity to conjure such ideas in the first place. There is no limitation on what you can potentially achieve, except for the limitation you choose to impose on your own imagination. What you believe to be possible will always come to pass – to the extent that you deem it possible. It really is as simple as that.”
~Anthon St. Maarten

The mind is one of our greatest assets. It’s a wonderful thing and it’s also a wandering thing. Unchecked it can wander off into blissful oblivion for hours on end, it happens to the best of us. There’s nothing at all wrong with a wandering mind as long you learn to tame that wandering mind and able to make that U-turn back to reality. Just the other day I wandered off to my grandmother’s kitchen, the smell of fresh bread and caramelized sugar permeated the room so profusely I could taste those cinnamon buns.  Then I had to snap out of it.

Why Hope Should Be Your Constant Companion — January 17, 2020

Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.  ~Thich Nhat Hanh

A worthwhile goal is worthy of pursuing and when you do have a goal set,  it’s almost inevitable that at some point you’ll think that, this goal is too hard. It’s taking too long to be realised. I can’t do this! Why do I keep failing? Once you have done all the overthinking, relish in all the self-doubt comes the moment of reckoning. The moment to start dreaming again, that moment of hope resurfaces to breathe in you, new strength.
