Embrace your fundamental principles. Find joy in the little things. Be content with what you have, be comfortable in solitude, in quiet contemplation and just be happy in the moment.
It all starts with us. We create our struggles by attaching too much importance to our disappointments without thinking about what we can learn from those. Our disappointments are simply lessons, it is important we learn them and move on.
We must remove what is no longer in alignment with our values. When we learn to stay centred, when we create a life for ourselves around our values and live with integrity, we will see what is no longer in alignment. When we go back to basics, we will remove parts of our life that no longer serve us.
It could be a job, a living space, a partnership, family, anything we feel isn’t right for us. We shouldn’t have to explain ourselves to others. If we’re already having to explain ourselves, those others don’t understand us.
Go back to basics and think about your day where you need to be and how much time you have. Start your day at the right pace and in the right frame of mind. Prioritise your work balance.
Just imagine how much better you’ll feel when you do go back to basics. How much more tolerance, patience and understanding you’ll have. Be content with what you have and with your achievements.
Stop striving to have and want more; free your energy up so that you have time to think about the things that you need to make your life better.
