Ponderings – Enough

Change occurs not when we are ready and waiting, but when we least expect it, when we are vulnerable, when we are at our lowest, in the darkest recesses of our very beings. It is when we finally face ourselves, when we take off the mask, step out from under the veil of superficiality and tell ourselves, “Enough is enough”.

That is when change occurs.

6 Simple Ways to Conquer Procrastination (~ 4 min read)

I HATE it when I procrastinate. Throughout my day, my mind is constantly racing, full of things that I can’t wait to get home and check off my to-do list: finishing another chapter in a book, getting a workout in, even writing a blog post. Continue reading “6 Simple Ways to Conquer Procrastination (~ 4 min read)”

Ever Tried. Ever Failed.

“Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.” – Samuel Beckett

Failure. Such power held in one notion. In one word. A word with the power to send men to their knees, to leave us exposed, feeling worthless and miserable. Continue reading “Ever Tried. Ever Failed.”

Ponderings – Competition

Everyone likes a little competition. But no one likes to lose. Of course, it’s purely circumstantial. Lose to a foul, delinquent group of cheaters that twisted the rules in their favor, then you’ll definitely feel the salt rubbed in your wound. But lose to an honest, admirable team of good sports that simply beat you fair and square? I wouldn’t call that a loss- I’d call that an honor.

Ponderings – Pleasing Everyone

There can be no more futile of an activity to engage oneself in than the fruitless attempt of pleasing everyone. By now it should be abundantly clear that such a goal is a dispiriting and empty one, one which will only ever leave you empty-handed and disappointed. Far better to stay true to yourself at the risk of upsetting a few than to fall in line and watch your tongue as merely another face in the crowd.

Ponderings – Life’s a Marathon

Do you ever think about how often we ever stop and think? I swear, sometimes it feels like my brain’s sprinting towards a finish line that it’ll never reach. When did everything become so stressful, when did our schedules suddenly fill up and leave us with no time for the things we actually enjoy? 

We’re busy, I get it. But remember, like any journey, life’s a marathon, not a sprint. You wouldn’t want to sprint ahead the first minute then burn yourself out, right? So just like in a marathon, it’s OK to slow down, take a break. 

I’ll drive my point home with this: the best time to make time for yourself is when you have none.
