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. As a child my life was far from this.
It all starts with us. We create our own struggles by attaching too much importance to our disappointments without thinking about what we can learn from them instead. Our disappointments are simply lessons, it’s 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 can create a life for ourselves around our values and integrity, we will see what is no longer in alignment. When we go back to basics, we remove the 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 anymore. 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. Start well and you will have a good day. Prioritise your work balance.
But 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.
Stop striving to have and want more. Free your energy up so that you have time to think about the things you really want.
