LIFE’S COLORS

LIFE’S COLORS
Today’s mantra comes from Tony Robbins who said, “If you’re going to blame people for the bad, then you better blame them for the good too… cause life is not so simple and black and white.” It’s a thought that I consider in life because it’s important to see things from other people’s point of view. Most situations fall in grayscale. There are a lot of factors that affect different things.
While blaming someone is never the answer, I do think that people can be responsible for the good that comes in life. Bad things happen and good things come and go, but everything is better when there are people to share things with. If things are going badly, it helps to surround yourself with people who support and love you. If things are going well, it’s always happier to share these moments. Life isn’t black and white, and it’s more colorful when you have people to share it with.

ONE MOMENT PLEASE

ONE MOMENT PLEASE

We live in a time where it’s very important to never stop learning. Learn about people and places and things. There’s a story behind everything, and life is about discovering these stories and understanding how they can connect to you. It is when we stop learning that we stop progressing and improving.

Learning shouldn’t be restricted to school and books. Learning comes in different shapes and forms from everything to trying new activities, making friends with strangers, and going out to places you’ve never been before. Teaching, sharing, and discussing is what makes us human – to understand what others are going through and to share our feelings are great ways to learn what you might not get the chance to experience. In a time when many voices are heard yet not many are understood, we need to learn empathy, patience, and compassion. Always stay hungry. Never stop learning.

SOMETIMES MORE IS MORE

SOMETIMES MORE IS MORE

More is more and less is less. And at this moment in time, I think we could all use more. More laughter. More happiness. More positivity. More freedom. More adventure. More communication. The way we treat ourselves and the way we treat each other is more important than anything else. If we don’t do good to ourselves and other people, we can’t bring goodness into the world.

This is why I encourage everyone to go and do what you’ve been hesitating to start. Begin the hobby you’ve been meaning to try. Attend the class that you’ve been waiting to go to. Invite the friend to dinner. Have another chocolate. Start writing your book. It is when we fill our minds with positive thoughts and actions that we can spread positivity to others. When we’re productive, we feel fulfilled. When we’re fulfilled, we share with our friends and family. When you build connections with friends and strangers, the bonds between each other help shape new ideas and ways of thinking. More creativity. More action. More good vibes. More life.

YOU DON’T OWN ME

YOU DON’T OWN ME

Be present. If there’s one thing I strive for every time I do something, it is to stay focused. It’s easy to be distracted when you’re out with friends or doing something on your own, but when you really take the time to concentrate on an activity, you can get a lot more done than if you were to multitask. When someone speaks to you, listen. When you’re reading, absorb the information. When you’re outside, disconnect from the grid. When you’re fully present, you start to see and hear differently because you get the entire picture.
