I was for all intensive purposes addicted to the game I was playing. This addiction nearly ruined me mood wise, I was miserable to be around when I was even able to force myself to go to class or go out and socialize.
I wanted to stop, and one day I did, just like that. Told myself I would focus on building and improving myself. I began to take pride in hygiene, exercising, and building hobbies (mainly playing the piano) It's been almost exactly a month since that day and I'd just like to share where I've gotten since then.
I've been as active as I can, landing a job that promotes activity, hiking whenever possible, and going on runs around parks. I can honestly say it's the happiest I've been in a while, if not ever, and to think that it's only been a month makes me even happier. Who knows what the next few years will bring.
My confidence has skyrocketed from almost nothing to the most confident I've ever been as well.
I'm hoping that this post will convince someone who is in the same boat that I was in that moving out of unhealthy habits is easier than you think. The body and mind is extremely resilient and wants to be active, so get out there and live life!
Gratitude and plentitude. They're the two ends of the same bone. Combined, they're the marrow of miracles. The structure of success.
When I clear the mental clutter and focus on the present, I'm instantly reminded of how blessed I am.
Look into your own life. If you scrub away the make-up of illusion and impurities of jealousy — can you see the clarity of grace? Can you understand how treasuring what's right in front of you is worth your time?
Gratitude grounds plentitude in the now. When you honor who you are, what you do, and what you have, your energy will change. You will start to glow. People will be drawn to you because that gratitude glow is rare in our current culture. I'm hoping to bring it back.
It's my desire to kick off a gratitude cascade throughout the world so that we may inspire each other to live our best lives yet.
We're here, each and every one of us, because we have a unique gift to share. It's my wish that we're both bold and humble enough to embody our divine potential.
