“Acknowledging the good that you have in your life is the foundation of all abundance.” – Eckhart Tolle. What I have come to realise is that we can never truly evaluate or value the impact of something at the time. We may never know the effect it has on our life for years to come, but when we reflect on our life as a timeline, we see how it came together in the end.
So many of us keeps secret from the world because we’re afraid that if we reveal the truth of who we really are we won’t be liked, or loved, or accepted. But perhaps one of our most important callings as a species is to put our own self-worth aside and to tell our stories, our struggles and how we prevailed in order to relieve others from suffering.
The choices we make and the journey we take will determine our levels of joy and fulfilment. But in an ever-changing world, it is unlikely that we will follow one path of happiness. It’s challenging to keep up with how fast the human race evolves at this point in time. We are very different people to whom we were a decade ago, and it is likely in another decade we will be very different again. We may have a different passion, different lifestyles, different relationships, different careers, different hobbies, and it is almost certain there will be even more things that demand our time.
Jim Carrey said, “our need for acceptance can make us feel alone in this world.”
