7 Things To Wake You Up And Realize Your Own Bullshit

Thursday, August 30, 2018 ... The end of August 2018 and I can feel autumn is coming. Today I woke up at 6 am, I had a coffee or two, and then did 29th yoga practice of this month. The practice was disappointing but it does not matter, it is yoga and I was on the mat, that what counts.

Guess what? Life is hard for everyone. It’s not supposed to be easy. If you want a different life, no one is going to change it for you. Stop for a moment and clearly see the truths about your life...

1. You’ll stop living some day

You want to think you are immortal, but you aren’t. You behave like you're immortal, you have no notion of your own death. You always want more and better and you're striving to reach goals, objectives and you're saving for a retirement in order to start living. Stop wishing away your days and start enjoying what is going on right now.

2. Everyone around you is going to die

Hug your mom and dad and tell your sister you love her. Hug your partner and freely express your love. Say it loud. Tell people that matter to you that they matter to you. Either you or they won’t be here someday. Look up from your smartphone, look them into eyes and tell them that you're grateful to them, grateful for having them in your life.

3. Money is not everything

You put a price on things and people. You evaluate people of how much money they have. You feel poor even you are never hungry, naked or cold. No matter how hard you try, money will not buy you happiness. Stop accumulating, life is about living. And stop spending your money on crap.

4. You cannot make everyone happy

Don’t worry about trying to make people happy. Be yourself until your time runs out. People will never be pleased with you. If you want to make a real difference in the world, leave people as they are. Don't avoid them, just be with them. Spending time with people impacts them in ways you cannot even imagine.

5. Don't be perfect

Unless you are living in the present, you are wasting your life. Stop accusing yourself, having a guilt of what you have done or regrets what you have not done. Stop chasing tomorrow, start enjoying today. Standing in front of the mirror pointing out your flaws will make you miserable. Don’t waste another second trying to be perfect, be what you are right now.

6. Trust yourself

Pay attention to how you feel instead of trying to figure out your thoughts. No one is going to live this life for you. Trust your inner feelings, the gut, your intuition. You're realizing that all the stuff you're worried about doesn’t really matter. Hopefully, you’ll realize that you still have time to do the things you actually wanted to do. Hurry, you might not wake up tomorrow so don’t put off what you can do today until tomorrow. You might not get the chance.

7. You will never have enough time

Do the best you can with what you have. But if you want to really enjoy life, you need to get to collect yourself fast and cut the crap out of your life and realize your own bullshit so you can spend time on the things that matter to you.
