We are all living a ‘walter mitty’

We all live a version of a ‘Walter Mitty’ story in our heads, we create these fantasy versions of ourselves, that we act out in our heads, and in many way, in our actions and behaviours in the exterior world.

The challenge is though, that this ‘better’ or more exciting life/story that we create never really materialises and this leads to disappointment. We are dissatisfied, so we create a ‘better’ life, that never happens and then there is only further suffering, always seeking better rather than allowing the amazing human soul that we all are shine bright.

We expect that our ‘Walter Mitty’ life will become real, but it never does, and that leads to a feeling of lack and discontent. It becomes a spiral with no escape from these created personas.

If only we realised that if we let go of all the stories, the fantasies, the roles, the ‘Walter Mitty’ and actually let our true essence shine that we all have the most amazing life and journey to have.

When we are free from the burden of the stories, then we can be at peace within and then we can truly enjoy life now as our true self.

What we give

What we want from others can only be as much as we are prepared to give and we have to be prepared to be that person first without any condition or attaching anything to our actions.

If we want more love we have to be love

If we want more kindness we have to be kindness.

If we want more empathy we have to be empathetic.

We have these expectations of others which we could choose to have none and then there can not be disappointment.

What we give out will come back. We have to be the light and example not simply expect it from others.
