Flexing my muscles

My perseverance muscles…. Acknowledging that not giving up, enduring or perseverance, is a unique quality for success….

Everyone should care more, about society, our neighbors, our impact on the world we live in, the world we will leave our progeny (biological or otherwise), the earth, and societal injustices.

Ignoring all these don’t make these problems less, but more!!

Pushing

It’s been a while, but I am resolved to redoubling my energy in all aspects of my life. Our existence is but a performance, a to passing phase, after which we ALL exit left (or is it right?).

My dad, while he was alive, served as my homing signal, my grounding base, a reminder of the reason for my hustle. Looking back, I could have done different, acted different, been different, a bit wiser, and more patient

Now I look forward, no excuses, just grind and live!

Big Life Q’s

These days, I think more expansively about who I am, and if I like who I have become. The follow-up question is about who I want to be. This is not for sh*ts and giggles, or to go through the motions, but to be true to myself, brutally honest.

My questions today to myself are about choice. Do I choose to be a sum of all my fears, or something else? To be a convoluted and surprising combination of my hopes, dreams, goals, aspirations, and ambitions….as well as my fears.

I choose to be the latter, so help me God. To be so much more than I have been up till now, more than I dare hope for, and more of what this world needs.

Going all in

Setting a new target for myself after a while of coasting. Maybe I coasted for a bit too long, but now, there’s so much new excitement. I am glad.

Don’t know how it will go. I’ve set a 5-6 year time frame, and I’m going all in. I choose to trust that it will all turn out spectacularly.

Pushing forward

Take a leap forward, going all in on the game, is scary as anything. However, it is inevitable if we want to leave a print on the world in our wake.

The idea is to embrace the unknown, or half-known, and prepare to give everything.

Self-doubt

Why does this happen even to the best of us? As long as I can remember, every single milestone, achievement, or degree, has been followed with imposter syndrome and self-doubt.

This comes from fear, as well as not trusting in oneself. However, the most accomplished people in society also report having this anxiety.

Therefore, it appears that it is not this anxiety/doubt/fear that matters, but our actions despite it.

Taking a leap of faith

There’s nothing as anxiety-provoking as trusting anyone, including yourself, to be or do anything. It’s likely a lifelong lesson, that I will hopefully get better at with time.

I am choosing to trust that I can do and be whatever I set my mind to. I am also choosing to trust that I can love and be truly loved by other people, family, spouse, friends.

It boils down to the action of choice, and choosing.

Gratitude

Appreciate every lesson, every experience, every failure, and every opportunity to lend a hand or an ear. Life’s too short to do otherwise!

Somewhere in the dry west.

Once in a lifetime..

Being on the road, apart from being stressful and hard on your butt gives you some time for introspection.

I am grateful that I am a part of a world much bigger than my mind can conceive. I am also humbled that I share this world with a wide variety of people, all with their individual joys, pains, fears, aspirations and imperfections.

I resolve and recommit to working hard to move the needle in my orbit, make an impact, leave a print as I exit to the left off this stage called life.
