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.

Ponderings – Concern

It is natural to be concerned about others’ opinions, to wonder of our image in others’ eyes. But once this concern begins to govern our thoughts, our actions, our lives, we need remind ourselves to turn the concern inward. Let others’ thoughts be their own, let them think and say what they want. At the end of each day, the only person’s thoughts that we have control over is our own.
