Good afternoon readers, yes today’s piece comes at an hour later than usual, but it’s not because I overslept, nope, I still woke up at 7. I was just feeling a little dazed this morning, and was spending time with the family, dad’s back.
So today, I have beside me a cuppa green tea, chilling in Dome BSC, and I’m going to do a little reflection.
It’s been about 3 weeks since I come back from my week stay with dad in India. 3 weeks since I’ve started this personal awakening of mine. And just let me say, IT FEELS SO GOD DAMN GOOD TO BE ALIVE AGAIN. No longer feeling like I’m in a coma. I no longer feel like I’m coasting through life. I have my goals, I have my self-belief, I have my writing and so much more.
Most importantly, I’ve been dreaming again… And even more important, I believe that I can achieve those dreams. Thank you Dr. Schwartz for igniting my spirit, thank you Zoran & Cheryl for giving me the book, thank you my dear parents for supporting me, Sheka for giving me the opportunity to be published in The Edge Financial Daily, Robin Sharma for providing me daily motivation and great life lessons and finally, you, my readers, the people who have given me so much encouragement and support over the past 3 weeks.
I have done more in the last 3 weeks than the 3 months before that. I’ve socialised more, Skype with people, spent good time with family, practiced my singing, working my brain, waking up early every morning, swimming almost every morning, growing my blog and just all round development. It has been great, it wasn’t a completely smooth ride but life never is. What I’ve learnt is that the greatest, the best, the geniuses, are the ones who fail the most, the difference is that they don’t allow those defeats to cripple their spirit. Hopefully, I will extend this 3 week spell to another 3 weeks and beyond.
After a few weeks of waking up at 7, I think my body is finally adjusting to it, it’s getting a little easier to get up at that time, I’m going to try and wake up a little earlier this week. My goal, is that by the end of the year, I should be able to sleep at 10 and wake up at 5am feeling completely refreshed. That’s the dream. Wish me luck. I would like to join the 5 o’clock club.
How about you? How has your week been? Why don’t you take a minute and think about it, reflect on the week. What improvements have you made in your life? What did you do this week that you didn’t like and what can you learn from it? (the only valuable part of a mistake is the lesson you gain from it) how can you improve the coming week? Maybe you would like to cut down on tv time and get more reading done? Start sleeping at a regular hour so that you can get your body adjusted?
We should all actually start reflecting on our lives on a weekly basis. Look at the direction we are heading in, whether we are in line with our goals, planning the next week and just taking a good look at yourself. Go get yourself a journal to do little writing in, something to put your thoughts in, to plan your goals, to brainstorm, to reflect on the week, to dump your worries in. A companion that will help you develop into the person you aim to be.
I hope this has helped you,
Straight From The Heart,
