It really is all about you.
All of it. All of life is about you. How you see yourself, how others see you, how you interact, how others interact with you. What you give to life, and what life gives back to you.
Yet, we don't spend enough time exploring who we are in a positive, helpful, "let's make my life better" way.
Don't get me wrong, we definitely spend a whole whack of time thinking about ourselves:
How such-and-such or so-and-so affects me.
What can I do to correct a situation.
If that were me I would do it this way.
How much sleep did I get.
What am I going to have for dinner.
Why can't I just do blah blah blah....
Why can't I just be blah blah blah...
Most of our 'self' thoughts are lathered in judgement (of ourselves and others), are reactive and speedy, and are produced in a state of "auto-pilot".
We are thinking all the time (we don't shut up in there!), but we aren't diving in too deeply, right?
We are running on this "auto-pilot" state, hardly aware of why we are doing what we are doing, and not knowing what we would really like to be doing instead.
We are afraid to switch off the "auto-pilot".
We feel that if we stopped for a second we would turn into lazy blobs.....because as we run around in our minds all we think we would really like to be doing instead is sleep or at the very least switch off from 'life'.
NOPE. You will pleasantly surprise yourself!
Quite the opposite will happen. You will feel even more alive!
If you view diving in deeper as the way towards a more 'alive' life, that is what your life will become: ALIVE.
Recognize that learning more about YOU is a way to get more out of life.
