Just like baking a cake, if we leave out an ingredient, the cake doesn’t taste (or look) that great.
When it comes to making real changes in our life, we can’t leave out an ingredient.
If you follow the recipe, you will not crash and burn.
Let’s face it, I don’t think the universe wants us to live unhappy lives, that is not what the higher powers want for us, I believe that we are all destined to live the life of our dreams but we need to follow the recipe.
It’s not hard, in fact it is very easy, we just forget to add the eggs sometimes and that is what makes it hard.
You see, we want to take the easy road, the path of least resistance and that my friends IS the easy way out, and anyone can do that.
You have to work hard for this (and I don’t mean working 24/7) I mean work hard at believing in yourself.
I know this seems an easy concept (on paper) but it can be done. I have spent the last 3 years of my life reading and studying many thoughts, themes and philosophies around self-care and clearing my brain of unhelpful thoughts and fears. It hasn’t been easy all of the time but it has been enlightening (and sometimes frightening) to accept that I was in charge of my thoughts and they were not serving me well.
If you demand the best version of yourself, you cannot lose. Think of it like a road map, you have to make the start and keep moving, the responsibility is yours.
You have only one thing to do, the only thing in your control, and that is your state of mind. You control it and you can change the direction.
Focus on what really counts, and forget the rest. I love the saying “will it matter in 6 months time”, the truth is that nothing is worthy of your worry and no past experience is worthy of us carrying it into our future lives.
Commit to yourself and your future, be the person you were always meant to be and live the life of your dreams.
It’s your mission in life, if you choose it.
I say to you ‘BRING IT ON’.
Now here’s a super easy recipe that I make all the time (thanks to my sister for giving it to me).
