Or should I say, five mottos that I live my life by! There may be more but these are a few key ones. 🙂
- If it’s not a hell yeah, it’s a no
Are you thinking of changing jobs or chasing a dream? Want to go some place, ask someone out or try something new but you can’t decide whether or not to go for it?
If it’s not a hell yeah, it’s a no. That means if it’s a ‘hmmm maybe’ or ‘sure, why not’ or just a half arsed attempt at anything – then it’s a NO. Don’t do it. Leave it.
If you live by this at least regarding all your major life decisions, you will save yourself a lot of time, energy, pain and confusion.
And in return, by following the hell yeahs, by pursuing only your deepest excitement and ‘pull’ towards particular things, you align yourself with the incredible power at the source of all creation.
Disclaimer – of course sometimes we have to do things that we don’t want to do and where the safety, security and health of you or others is involved, just try and do the right thing!
- If this wasn’t meant to be happening, it wouldn’t be happening
I really believe that life is unfolding perfectly. It might not be unfolding happily at times, but it’s still unfolding perfectly.
When you see this, or choose to see it, you take a lot of strain off your shoulders. You simply accept everything that is before you as part of a grander plan that we could probably never really get our minds around.
We are part of a mass consciousness, everything is intertwined, life is happening full stop. Surrender to this. You may not like it at times, but that doesn’t mean you can’t trust it. And in that trust is a massive unburdening.
- I’m the only one who has to live with the pain of not being true to myself
People will make you believe that they will suffer if you don’t do what they want, if you don’t live by their rules. Maybe they will suffer, but firstly – this is nothing to do with you, you cannot control their feelings. And secondly, their suffering will be nowhere near as much as yours.
Waking up each day and living an inauthentic life is going to eat away at you because who you truly are never goes away. It’s not going to go away because the reason it’s here, is to be lived and expressed.
You can ignore it, bury it, disguise it or try to change it, but trust me, it’s stronger than you and your avoidance games! So you might as well let it shine and in return, it will grant you blessings and joy greater than you can imagine.
- This too shall pass
Nothing is permanent. Nothing. Pain? It passes. Joy? It passes. Life? It passes. When I say pass, I mean transform. Nothing can be removed from the soup of existence, it can only be transformed into something else. Pain transforms to hope, hope transforms to joy and so on.
Let that settle in next time you think you’re going through some never ending hell (we’ve all been there)! It will transform into joy again, just hang in there!
- I know what’s best for me
If you’re in a good mental state, in touch with your soul and intuition and have a handle on the guiding power of your emotions – then I believe you know what’s best for you.
No one else will ever be able to fully step in your shoes so although they can guide and may definitely assist you, ultimately only you really know what’s best for you. The challenge is learning to trust yourself – something we’ve all been conditioned out of to some degree.
So there you have it! A few key mottos that I live my life by. Maybe you could take one and give it a go, or better still, tell me yours? ☺
