Trying to avoid life

we often look for the complicated, we seek the problems, we build obstacles, we look for elaborate get outs, we find ways to not show up, we seek approval or permission to stop us from starting, we look for others to seek avoidance with, we, in fact, do anything to avoid our lives.

Then we say ‘life’s too short’ or ‘if only I had more time’ or ‘you only live once’ and so on.

Our life is right now, just enjoy this moment and do something without thinking or do nothing at all, either, and it doesn’t matter, but we could choose to avoid spending every moment trying to avoid life and instead live it.

What we allow

Often we look to others for approval, for permission. It is a way of ‘passing the buck’ and negating making a decision ourselves. It’s all part of the procrastination process coupled with the fear of offending others or not living up to expectations.

The fact is, it is entirely our freedom and what we allow is what we allow. We do not need permission or approval for anything we choose to do. Our choices will have a consequence and an outcome.

But life is all about what we allow to happen in our lives.
