How do you want to live your life?

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken – Oscar Wilde

Taking our own advice

Yes, it has been a very long time since I last posted something; well, life does get busy and overwhelming. I will endeavour to write more often….

Now, back to the topic on hand, I have been talking to people lately about some issues that I have been facing and there is a common response that I have been getting: Heed your own advice. Wow, if it had not been repeated to me so many times in a matter of days, I would still be oblivious.

I realised why¬† keep facing these issues…. I have not been walking the talk! My close friends would know my favourite sayings like: ‘Happiness is a choice’, ‘ Just get on with it’, ‘Look for the positive in everything.’ Yet somehow when one is in the hot seat, it is not as easy to practise what you preach!

I have been humbled today, I hope that I will be able to put into practise these favourite sayings. Then I know I will be able to retain my inner peace when the world around me threatens to take it away. I learn that it is easy to dish out advice but never easy to put it into use. But I will strive to make it happen.

Start by listening to what advice you have been giving people and try to find your own solution from there. You might be surprised that not only do you have the answer to someone else’s problems, you also have your own. What have you got to lose by trying? A little self-awareness goes a long way!

Til the next time, be happy…or rather choose to be happy!

‘Life is not about finding yourself, it is about creating yourself!’
