A lesson from a martial art.

“When you look for something, you struggle to find it, in fact you try to force it and in doing that you put yourself in harms way and almost always end up worse off.

Stop looking for things, once you do you’ll find the opportunities present themselves and when they do, it means you’re ready for them because you’re no longer looking or try to force them to happen.

It shows you’ve grown because you can now recognise the situation for what it is, a gift towards your victory.”

Quite prudent, especially when you apply this thought process to life.

So often people try to make things happen without success, seems like it’s time to stop looking so hard because once you do you’ll find what you seek, which is usually right in front of you, you just couldn’t see it before because you were looking too hard to find it.

A valuable lesson.

Which are you?

Day after day we post, some do it for fame, others for likes and shares, then some for nothing more than to appease the routine and get those cluttering thoughts out of our heads.

Then there’s who write to keep their sanity and displease the apathy.

Finally there is me, I write, nothing more.

Which are you?

Where to look.

Do you want to know something that is as sad as it is pathetic?

There is one one person that problems get divulged to in this so called life that was granted all those years ago.

They know everything.

All the pain, all the sadness, all the struggles, everything.

Every day they listen for hours upon hours and give all the reasons that life is still worth living, that there is a reason to keep going and hide behind the persona that everyone else perceives to be the identity.

Life is one gigantic slap in the face for the most part, yet this person still listens regardless and convinces you to carry on.

They have your back no matter what, you can trust them 100% and they will never betray you.

If you want to know who they are, they’re right in front of your eyes, you just need to know where to look so that you can see them.

Do you know or should I tell you?

….

The place to look.

….

It’s called a mirror.
