Run Your Life…Don’t…Let Your Life…Run You ✌️❤️

Had somebody get in touch with me about them going through a bad time at the moment.

A friend…in…need of a chat.

Afterwards…he messaged me saying that my stance had really hit home.

Thought I’d share some of it with you.

This…is…the way I view times of adversity…personally…in my own head.

Best day of my years so far…was…the day I finally grasped that…life…isn’t capable of producing…straightforward…calm…uncomplicated algorithms of “Success” and “Happiness.”

We’re sold this dream…from…many outlets…from…many angles…but…I’ve learnt there is never going to be any perfect opportunity…perfect…time…path…direction or journey.

Nothing in existence is going to be all fun…smiles…positivity…and laughter…ever.

Just pick up a history book to see the logic in what I’m saying.

The proof is right there in front of us.

The…above statements…are…fact.

Ive noticed…when…beauty is found within those facts…we…are then able to start moving forwards.

Emancipating our deepest fears along the way.

Positivity and belief are absolutely key…essential…in the arsenal of resiliency…but…you know…I…don’t think they are anywhere near enough.

Realism has to be just as important of a factor in my experience.

Realism…to me…is the actual stimulus for true positivity…for…true belief.

It allows us to wade through the waters of the unclear and the unknown…within both life…and…our individual recognition of it.

The less as individuals we understand…we…learn about the world…about…humans and ourselves…then…the less we are capable of dealing…or coping…with it or them.

When you take a look into main stream society…popular culture…the picture has become extremely unrealistic about who we are…and…what we are a part of.

I think it’s vital to identify and accept…that…amongst all of the magnificent beauty…there…is going to be so much…tragedy.

No matter our background…our…colour or creed…the…tragedy does not discriminate.

Everybody is going to taste it in their own unique way.

It’s so important to get that bit nailed down…to truly thrive…build…move forwards…and attain both personal and social benefit.

Find the poetic eloquence within I say…as…the eloquence provides the strength to overcome and deal with.

We couldn’t know the good without the bad…and it’s the bad…that…usually stops us in our tracks…or…leads to regression.

So much easier turning up when everything is all hunky dory…plain sailing.

The change in wind…in tide…is where we need to be most accustomed….most…versed.

The fact we even continue to exist…is…based on the principle of difficulty in the first place.

It’s…what…we are.

Evolution itself…on the whole…in a nut shell…scaled down…generally…is there to better functionality and purpose…to…make things easier…more…efficient…continuous…and better ordered.

Not only does it take a mass amount of time to see results…not only is it never guaranteed to go to plan…or be of benefit…it’s…also spawned from complete and utter failure…mistake…devastation…and neurological/physical turmoil.

I personally feel we filter out that reality in this glossed over world.

Can’t really offer advice…development…expertise…or knowledge…without having messed up…without…making mistakes…getting it wrong…having to learn…take it back to the drawing board…change.

If we look at the actual language…the words…then…they give us what we really need to concentrate on during times of hardship.

Jus take a few synonyms of evolution…transferable to each and every single one of any bad patches we may go through.

Transformation…Reconstruction…Development…Change…Adaptation…Advancement…Progression…Revision…Rise.

All things given birth to by a stimulus for growth…a shock to the system…a…disturbance to the paradigm.

The negative gives birth to positive…if…we are prepared to learn…prepared…to see the value in the bad as much as the good…because…it’s always going to be there.

Before man and woman…was…neurological cognitive function…adaptation.

The nervous system was a part of us…before…we were a part of ourselves.

It is…inevitably us…giving birth to the catalyst needed to create and sustain life.

At one point we were just random cells and passageways…that by chance…or…consummate natural design…had their dots connected together.

Most things are…kind of out of our hands on the grander scale…when you look from that perspective.

That’s where the whole tragedy part comes in.

We can only predetermine certain elements of our lives…so…to me…sometimes…no matter what’s going on…you just gotta embrace it…regardless of what’s happening.

Stand up and shoulder roll those punches like you were “Pretty boy” Floyd.

The picture is much bigger than us…so…no matter what…I always advise to keep playing like a champion…with a smile on your game face.

There will be hard times…testing times…tough times…guaranteed…through every step…of…any way.

Depending on the size of the challenge…or the task at hand…we may even find the bad outweighing the good…completely darkening the horizon for extended periods.

May feel like it’s never going to stop…may…last for hours…days…months…years.

If you are going through a testing time…a hard time…the…hardest time in your life…then…smile…or…cry.

In those situations…life or death to the new…evolved…version of yourself…is attained.

This realisation is simply no more than veracity.

No matter what you are going through right now…good or bad…we…only ever have two options when it’s broken down.

When…all the dust has settled and the smoke has cleared.

1. DO

2. DON’T

There is no in between….there…never has been…never will be.

In the beginning…the middle…and in the end…that’s…all it really ever came down to.

Don’t let anybody fool you into thinking any differently.

Simple maths…simple…probability.

Literally doesn’t matter what my issue is…what’s happened to me…what cards I’ve been dealt.

Fast forward…through any of the safety nets…the safety blankets…through…all of the pain…the fear…the resentment…bitterness…and…what do we have when we break it down…no matter if we’re justified to feel that way or not?

All we have is 2 options…still.

Do…or…don’t.

Sink…or…swim.

Choice is yours…his…hers…mine…theirs.

Everything else is literally irrelevant once it’s come full circle.

It was the mess ups…the distortion…the misfortunes…that allowed me to really live.

The battle for control of my neurological being…the escape of sympathetic arousal as a teen…made me a man.

Made me a winner.

It is impossible to wake up every single day of the rest of your life…unphased and unaffected…from some of the avenues that it can take you down.

Remembering this…can stop…or…assist you from going under…from…giving up…being beaten…feeling isolated…or…feeling abnormal for going through such a tough patch.

Can…allow us to see the true magic of being here.

I’d go as far as saying quite often…we all take those times of affliction for granted.

There is no one size fits all rule book…although…they tell us there is…daily!

Believing that you always have to be “perfect”…think…“perfectly”…is a one way trip to anguish.

So I write this for those…who in this present moment…are feeling bad…about feeling in a bad way about something.

Don’t.

Have the best day ever my friends.

Keep doing you!

  1. Thank you for this reminder I like how you broke it down to do or don’t. We can take the opportunity to choose, but it is also true that the choice gets made if we don’t choose it.

    I also love that you said “we got to embrace it regardless of what is happening.” I have been very up and down mood wise lately and it has been distracting. 2 days ago I was up two days in a row and it felt great then yesterday I was super down. Having mood swings really is distracting and takes a lot of energy. I think I am going to look into my caffeine consumption because it is probably affecting me. I am also going to start embracing it all just like you said. It is amazing what a huge difference mantras can make to get us through the little day-to-day moments that sometimes feel endless.

    Love your message as always and the timing was great. Hope you are doing well!

    1. Thank you Alana.

      I love how open and honest you are with me. I really appreciate it.

      We’ve developed a great connection through our posts and these comment boxes!

      It’s funny…because…I’ve had much deeper and more meaningful conversations with you over the last couple months…than I have had with some of the closest people in my life!

      I’m glad you could take something from the post.

      End of the day…like we’ve said before…we’re only human.

      Takes a lot to admit you’ve been up and down,

      Nothing wrong with that though…happens to us all at some point…for some reason…doesn’t it?

      I think the caffeine would be an amazing thing to look at. Most definitely has a negative affect on the nervous system.

      Around a 24 hour half life as well.

      I think you already do embrace it…and that is what I love about you.

      Love your messages…and the way your mind thinks.

      Always do you fam!

      ❤️ Lee
