Why are we here?
It’s a question I’ve often pondered.
Many wonder if life has meaning at all.
No one’s ever came back to tell us otherwise.
Often we never get anywhere.
Many times too late, we’re already there.
Perhaps we have everything right here, or not.
Will we ever even know?
Life is truly a journey.
Why then does it feel as though I’m caged?
That I’m running in cirlces, going no where fast.
I see in others, what I see in myself.
Why then, do I not see this flower?
Even though, it’s right under my nose.
Struggling to reach the top, just to get a bit of light.
Only to fade away when winters frost comes.
Then I realize, that the meaning of life has always been here.
Right under my nose, just waiting to be seen.
To live, to grow, to die, to be reborn again.
Is it that simple?
Why did this not click before?
Just like the flower, growth takes time.
Time that there isn’t much of.
That is why we’re reborn again.
Until we learn what we need.
I was having a chat with someone recently about doing things in life and changing it up. It was brought to my attention that they were making excuses for themselves. What excuse? They didn’t want to get fit or healthy because they didn’t think their husband deserved it.
I know what you’re thinking. Really? Yes, really. All too often we make excuses that we’re not even aware of. Sometimes we’re aware of them, but most of the time we’ve told ourselves that often enough, that we’re not aware of them.
Why is this an issue? Why wouldn’t it be? We’re on this planet for one thing and one thing only. Ok, maybe a few things. For example: we’re here to be healthy, learn and grow, and experience all that we can. So, why is it that we’re holding ourselves back?
I think that a large part if it is negativity. Negativity is what holds us back. Even if we have plans, (big plans) we’ll could still have some negative thought holding us back. As Randy Gage puts it, you have to get rid of the negative thoughts and replace them with good thoughts. Only when the Positive outweighs the negative, can we then move forward.
Randy Gage on Youtube. Highly recommended.
One thing we have to realize, is that we’re hear for ourselves. No one else. We don’t have to please anyone. If we want to be healthy, it should be for our own reasons. To live longer, live happier, regardless if someone deserves it or not. We deserve it for ourselves.
Before you go bashing yourself with negativity, remember this, “It’s for me, no one else.” What are some other excuses that you’ve caught yourself giving? What are some tips that people can use to become positive thinkers?
Woke up early this morning to head out to the acre we have to work and plant some Sugarcane. Working several hours during the day is more than enough outside activity for me.
I’ve gotten enough Sun today that it could last me all week. Ok, maybe not, but I worked hard today. Dug one entire 50ft strip without stopping. It was as deep as the shovel tip, so I had to really work at it.
Shoveling is a great back work out. If you’re out of shape, try shoveling for about 20-30 minutes. You’ll start to feel it.
My Uncle brought us lunch out there, Fried Chicken, yum. Popeyes has the best Chicken, in my opinion. KFC, just isn’t good anymore and they’re expensive.
Needless to say, we got three rows of Sugarcane planted. This batch is aChewing variety. The next batch we’ll be planting is a Syrup variety.
Something I found out is, Rum is made with Sugarcane, so I just might experiment with that for home use.
Seems like I’ve gotten enough exercise regardless today. Feeling pretty tired right now. Might be heading to bed early tonight.
Some people don’t get enough Sun, I’m actually one of them. That’ll be one thing I’ll be working on in the next few months.
