Embracing New Opportunities in Life

Opportunities

I am about to embark on a new personal adventure, hence my inspiration today to share how we can fully embrace fantastic opportunities life may throw at us.

Be Free & Face Fear

Fear comes naturally, especially in times where life and surroundings are changing. There are steps we can take to overcome these feelings and understand that change can really be for the better.

Standing up to your demons is a big task, I know. However, once you have done it you will feel lighter, uplifted and free.

  • Recognise how you feel and work with it, not against it
  • Fill yourself with positive messages, leaving you feeling great
  • Share your experience, talk to people you feel comfortable with about how you feel. Gaining an alternative perspective may be beneficial

Never Settle for an Easy Ride

Life is supposed to be challenging. We are meant to feel stretched and tested. It is in times like these that you are able to understand how strong you are and your own capabilities.

Not letting yourself settle for the easiest journey is a wise piece of advice I was once given. That is not for one minute saying you should struggle. It simply means we all need to give ourselves a push every once in a while. Try not to let things become to comfortable, that often leads to monotony and boredom!

Only Take the Opportunities that Feel Right

Opportunities come up all the time. Life is absolutely full of them. You don’t have to soak them all up like a sponge and wear yourself away.

Sometimes, opportunities will arise that may make you doubtful. Often, this is an indicator that it is not right for you. Turning an opportunity down shows just as much courage as taking one on.

However, don’t be a settler. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone will probably be one of the best things you ever do.

Take a chance, grow a pair and get shit done.

Thank you so much for reading.

Creativity as an Expression of Individuality

Creativity

“Life has no limits.”

If you want to do something, do it!

We can use creativity in any way we like. Understanding the powers of your creative mind may take a while to come to terms with.

Creativity for Self Expression

Self expression is a wonderful way of allowing yourself to understand yourself. Others are likely to begin to understand who you are along the way.

Using your creative powers to share yourself is a weird and wonderful thing. This, what you are reading right, now can be considered my form of creativity. I am expressing myself through words. Of course, this can be done in any way, through dance, song, art and beyond. Others can appreciate your own creative work.

There are NO LIMITS

I really believe life has no limits. You set your own limits. If you want to do something, do it. From a young age, this has always been a life lesson I have been given on repeat. Now, I really believe this is mentality installed in me. So, I know that I am capable of using my creativity, or, in fact anything I set my mind to.

Therefore, what I am trying to say is, never be afraid of “giving things a go”. Ask yourself what have you got to lose? You don’t know the outcome of something until you have tried it.

Do Creative Ideas Come and Go?

Recently, I came across an interesting concept that ideas come to us and leave us if we don’t do anything about them. A creative spark will come into your life in a metaphysical way, and you chose what to do with it.

This idea comes from Big Magic, an inspirational book by Elizabeth Gilbert. If you are looking for ways to express your creativity, I recommend the read. 

In this, she explains her belief that a creative idea will come to you at the most unusual moment. If you are the person who is supposed to bring this idea to life using your creativity, you will. If not, this idea will move on to someone else.

At first I thought this was a little odd, however, I have since opened up to the idea. If you think of something but don’t grab the opportunity, then it was not meant to be.

Thank you for reading!

Don’t Strive for Perfection

Perfection – defined as: “a state of perfect”. What is perfect? No one knows the answer to this because perfection doesn’t exist. Striving for the best is the very greatest thing you can do, however, perfection is something totally different.

Perfection

You are Capable of Beautiful Things

Understanding your own powers and capabilities is a grand task. You have an unlimited potential and if you live knowing you are trying your best and working your hardest, there is nothing more you can do.

I mean this not just in relation to say, work, but also in yourself. You are never going to have a perfect mind because there is no such thing. To really be truly happy, you must just let life be. If you are living each day and loving it, then you are living. Trying to make everyday perfect will drain you. No one on earth has ever been perfect.

Let’s Not Categorise Ourselves

Today, many of us seem to label ourselves. Ask yourself this – why? Why are you trying to categorise yourself into being something or someone? If perfection isn’t real, then is it not enough to just be who you are. I believe social media has a big impact on this, but understanding that you shouldn’t be living to please others is a great life lesson.

Aim High, Not for Perfection!

Aim for the best, aim for being the best version of you. Think big! Do not be afraid of failure. Failing is one of the best life lessons we can possibly experience. Throughout our lifetimes, we never stop learning. Life is meant for learning and mistakes often make our most valuable lessons.

There is a difference in trying your hardest and trying to be perfect. Yes, you will be faced with many obstacles along the way but find a way around them, under them, over them or through them.

Your idyllic life will come if you are happy. Happiness is always, in my opinion, the best place to begin with anything.
