Achievement doesn’t always equal happiness

I used to be super achievement driven, until one day I realized: “Hey, I have ticked all the items on my bucket list, and I am not happy! What’s wrong with me?”

That’s when I realized I had spent most of my life living outside of my body, pushing, striving, dreaming and scheming, always chasing a new goal.

Yes, it was exciting, and rewarding, until suddenly it wasn’t!

I had to turn the steering wheel around and learn to manage the ‘internal slave driver’ and connect with the softer, wiser, older part of me that had been hiding in the depth of my subconscious mind/body system.

To connect with my soul, I had to learn to get very comfortable inside my skin, and return home into my body.

I had to learn to accept myself and commit to the journey of self love, instead of ‘self-mutilation’ which goes along with being an over achiever.

I had to learn to let go of opportunities, the smell of outer success and stop chasing some of my dreams and slow down to find true happiness.

Each of us are on our own unique journey.

But one thing is the same for everyone: when we live in resistance, our joy disappears.

Joy increases when we stop resisting our circumstances, issues in our relationship, the world situation etc, and start thinking: why is this happening FOR me?

Instead of why is this happening TO me?

ALL HEALING begins with the decision to stop seeing yourself as a victim of circumstances and start believing that you am a co-creator of your life, and the Universe is your best friend. (not your enemy that you have to struggle against)

When you understand this, and practice it, you start to become wiser.

Wise people are often happy and contented.

That’s because they stopped giving their power away to someone or somebody else.
