New beginnings

When I received the news, I couldn’t believe it was happening to me.  I had not time to get sick, I had no time to rest, I had no time to waste my time changing my life style.

There should be a quick way to get rid of that illness.

After all, we do everything fast nowadays, we do not have to cook anymore, we eat fast food, we take our clothes to the laundry and pick it up cleaned and ironed, so we don’t have to waste time doing it ourselves, we use a taxi service to take us everywhere so we don’t have to drive anymore, our smartphone will find the shortest and fastest way so we don’t waste a second in the traffic.

We live our life at high speed and we are used to get what we want fast and easy.

So most of them have lived a life full of difficulties and have learnt to overcome them and they are now in a privileged place because they passed their tests. Nevertheless they don’t like the idea of starting all over again.

They feel they have reached the goal and now they can just rest and live looking at the past for the rest of their lives. Continue reading

Endings

When we see the end of a year, a cycle, a relationship, a school term, etc., we tend to react with sadness or joy, depending on how we judged that period of time.

But what is new inside your heart and mind after the good and the bad within that old cycle?  All those “negative” things that appeared during that time has brought you what new lessons? How are you going to react next time to similar events? Do you feel stronger now? Can you see those times of frustration and anger as growing experiences? How will you use those experiences in the future? Continue reading
