Trust Your Path.

Your path to greatness will be filled with obstacles, challenges, opportunities, near-misses, failure, mistakes, self-doubt, naysayers, yay-sayers, doubters, supporters and a roller coaster of storms and battles. The key to making the journey less turbulent is to trust your path, embrace the challenges, bet on yourself always, show up daily, go all in and trust the process. It is going to get more challenging as you climb higher. Remember why you started the journey in the first place and keep it moving.

The road to success is not straight. There is a curve called Failure, a loop called Confusion, speed bumps called Friends, red lights called Enemies, caution lights called Family. You will have flat tires called Jobs, but if you have a spare called Determination, an engine called Perserverance, a driver called Will Power, you will make it to a place called Success. 


Daily Calm with Tamara Levitt – Restlessness

It is common to feel restless on occasion when we sit, when we are having a busy day, or when we are experiencing discomfort. It can be hard to settle our mind and body, sometimes these feelings of restlessness or agitation is so prolonged it feels inescapable. In this case, we can learn to walk with it. Our natural reaction to restlessness is to seek distraction, often by drifting into daydream to avoid boredom or discomfort but through meditation, we learn to confront our feelings of unrest.

By cultivating presence and awareness, we can transform our relationship to this unsettled inner state. We begin by befriending this feeling of restlessness and getting to know it more intimately. We might feel a physical sensation of agitation or tune into the anxious thoughts steering in our mind.  With awareness, we learn to sit with our experience without resisting it. Over time, the more deeply acquainted we become with restlessness, the less it bothers us and the less power it has to throw us off track. The idea is not to resist this unsettled feeling in meditation or daily life. But instead allow it to be, get curious about it, and explore it.

Daily Jay with Jay Shetty – Self-forgiveness

Chances are, there is something that you regret and wish you could do over. Even if the only person you ought was you, it can be incredibly tough to move on. Forgiveness can be challenging, especially when the person you need to forgive is you. For many of us, our missteps are like a one-song playlist looping over and over again. We maul, agonize, ruminate, repeatedly scolding ourselves, that is because deep down, we have this notion that the way to atone for our mistakes is to keep beating ourselves up.

We believe that if we stop feeling guilty, we no longer care. Guilt is a crucial emotion because it alerts us to the fact that we slipped off and that we need to make something right—make up for it or do something differently next time. Yet that is where the value of guilt stops. It doesn’t resolve anything, and if you hang out there too long, guilt becomes like glue. It keeps you stuck and prevents you from moving forward.

Instead of an endpoint, think of guilt as a bridge,, and you can only cross it by walking the path of self-forgiveness. What is on the other side is growth, which allows you to learn from your errors instead of dwelling on them. The best apology is changed behaviour. Lots of us have internalized the idea that we are supposed to be perfect. Our missteps can provide one of our most powerful opportunities to gain insight and evolve. The best way to make amends when you feel guilty is to release guilt and move into growth.

I choose to approach myself with compassion, understanding and love even when I don’t want to.
