Being different

Being authentically ourselves is like climbing a sheer cliff without ropes.

Fitting in is like shooting fish in a barrel.

Being different often means being alone.

Having a voice that is ours will never be easy, but if we want to set an example and be different we have to be prepared to be brave.

I don’t mean brave like when we have an injection or a cut, the bravery required to stand out is the deepest there is.

The deepest way to stand out is to stand up to the thoughts of our own minds, that is where the abyss of bravery is, to face our own thoughts.

That’s how we get to be different.

The big city lights

Often throughout history, we humans have been attracted to the allure of the big city lights and all the promised adventure. To be part of something big, to be where the action is. To live life and be cool.

The problem isn’t where we live, because unless we change our life view, mindset and habits when we get to the big city, we’ll still have the same life as before only it will cost us treble the money.

Life isn’t about other factors it is always directly related to us…surprisingly, the only thing that we can control.
