Don’t Follow. . .
“Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it. Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many. Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books. Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders. Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations. But after observation and analysis, when you find that anything agrees with reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.” – The Buddha
Life isn’t about following others; you have to find what works for you. That means discovering your passions, and what you consider to be your life purpose. Without this, you may feel lost. Though friends and family mean well, taking time for yourself is extremely important so that you can understand what in your life you need to change or shift to be in alignment with what you need. Your life purpose or passion may seem like a mystery or unending challenge (it may also be amazing and awesome), but it’s part of who you are. Without that mindset, you can make it down the road of life and have a lot of regrets.
Personal success isn’t dependent on others or the world; it’s dependent on the happiness and fulfillment that flows from what you’re doing. So what are you doing with tour minutes and days? Flow with it in a educated and informed manner and you are closer to honoring your own truth in own unique ways.
