Daring Greatly

“Don’t take anything personally, because by taking things personally you set yourself up to suffer for nothing.” — Don Miquel Ruiz

Recently on the Good Life Project, Jonathan Fields decided to re-air one of my favorite episodes in the GLP archives, most likely one of the most viewed.

This particular episode was with Brene Brown.

The Atmosphere of Growth

Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that, but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing. — William Butler

Reflecting on the past two years of this journey, it’s been up and down. Currently, I am in the trough a bit. I’m not as happy as I was earlier this year and I know that’s because my growth has slowed.

Happiness doesn’t come from goal attainment, but rather, growth; the process in which we strive towards goals. Tweet this

We try to come up with this definition of what happiness is or is not. We spend so much of our time trying to find it or obtain it when in fact it cannot be pursued. Happiness ensues.

But yet, we travel the journey in pursuit of it.

Calming Your Head Chatter

Does head chatter control your day? Does it gloss you over the present moment going through the motions of your daily to-do’s, tasks and projects? Does your head chatter strip you away from an intimate conversation blocking you of any kind of deeper connection?

It does for me. In fact, sometimes it can be so bad, so far off course, that the head chatter creates stress and anxiety within me.

In reality, all of this (head chatter) stems from an imaginative place. The head chatter is what we create, or imagine, around the source, to be true, that causes the pain.

We take ourselves down unnecessary rabbit hole after rabbit hole.

Release Your Inner Ramblings

Writing is a major component of my self growth journey. It’s the foundation of being intentional.

Though, as much as I’d like to, I don’t write every single day. I set out to do so, absolutely, but with the longer summer days and beautiful weather we find ourselves outside longer, playing. Therefore my writing isn’t as consistent.

Lately, however, as I’ve been neglecting it it’s also what I’ve been needing most.
