What's Wrong With Me?
You are a human and humans don't just feel great all the time - humans feel all kinds of emotions including the unpleasant ones. Humans make mistakes, they regret there actions, they lose their temper, they get drunk, they spend too much money on stupid things, they hurt themselves and the ones they love.
All of this is completely normal and I want you to know right now that you don't need to be a super-disciplined self-help guru to be happy! You don't need to try and be perfect - YOU ALREADY ARE PERFECT! Even your so-called flaws, even those things that you want to change about yourself - these things are all perfect. That doesn't mean you can't implement positive change in your life - but meanwhile stop giving yourself a hard time TODAY!
I have been a little quiet this week in terms of blogging - and as usual this was not because I was 'doing nothing' (as much as I recommend that!) but because I have been T-H-I-N-K-I-N-G! I am about to launch a whole new arm of my meditation and personal development monster and this is precisely the thrust - you don't have to be hardcore to be happy! You can learn simple easy ideas and techniques to be consistently happy for the majority of your life and to be 'okay with it' when you're feeling shit. Full stop.
Warning: plot spoiler ahead!
I have come a full circle. I have been like that dude in the Alchemist by Paulo Cohelo who goes looking for the treasure or whatever only to find out that it was right where he was all along. Most of us know that going full-tilt into a life of non-stop partying and self-gratification doesn't make you happy - and now I have come to the conclusion (epiphany more like it) that you don't need to be the world's most self-disciplined puritanical yoga health guru to be happy. Forget about it! You'll just do what I did for a little while (quite recently and on-and-off for years) and make yourself miserable every time you let yourself down - forget expectations of becoming perfect - and realise that you are perfect now!
And if you find that hard to do then stick with me over the next couple of months because I'm gonna show you just how easy it is to be the most totally chilled out dude on the block. And I am 100% for real about that.
Meanwhile here is the article that helped me to remember what I sat down to blog about two hours ago (I got distracted and wound up surfing on a wave of electric light through the infosphere!)
All power to Pamela Slim - she gets it. She knows what you need to know - that there is nothing wrong with you. Amen!
