We spend a lot of our time working hard to try to get away with stuff…
To stay out of the Headmaster’s Office of life.
Newton’s Third Law is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The definition of Karma: For every action, there will always be a reaction.
(also Wiccan law has something similar – but that’s probably for 3 am when we’re on to listening to Coldplay or something)Or for our purposes, it means that all actions have consequences.
I mean we KNOW this
But literally, refuse to KNOW it.Some examples of stuff we are dodging actually KNOWING;1 You are going to die.
2 Alcohol will make you put on weight, give you a hangover, make you look haggard
3 Smoking will make you ill and kill you (yes you know a smoker that lived to 100 – but that is the exception)
4 Eating unhealthy food will make you ill and have a weight problem.
5 You need to look after and spend time with the important people in your life.
6 Exercising regularly will make your body look and feel great.
7 You need enough sleep.
8 You need to keep learning.
9 You need to spend at least some time doing something you love that makes you feel valued.
10 Unfinished business should be finished.
11 You need to treat people well and sort out any situations that are on your mind.
12 Drugs are bad for you and cocaine turns you into a dickhead.
13 That you need to do the things you have to do before you do the things you WANT to do.
14 Doing a job you hate makes for a lot of your life being miserableYou get the idea.
And you agree right?Wait though…”if I don’t do the things that I WANT to do for short-term gratification and doing all the super-worthy things that address the above… my life will be really boring”.
You’ve got to live, right?
If you had a great body, clear eyes, plump well-rested skin, got all your work done in good time, woke up full of energy, had amazing relationships, loads of fun, didn’t have any stress on your mind – free to just enjoy the rest of your time
– would that actually be boring?
There is nothing like a deathbed or near miss to focus the mind – but most of us are still in denial about number 1.
We were talking earlier today, while we were out walking.
We are really, really good at that stuff for our 6 year-olds;
1. We make sure
2. They are safe,
3. Have enough sleep,
5. Don’t spend too long in front of a screen,
6. Drink enough water,
7. Don’t take drugs (other than the ones from the doctor)
8. Had time outside in the fresh air,
9. Have fun and interesting things to do,
10. Learn new things,
11. Eat healthy food,
12. Spend time with friends,
13. Get lots of cuddles and quiet time,
14. Wind down in the bath before an early night.
We are pretty bad at doing that stuff for ourselves.
We do bits of it – but actually to be happy we need to shoot for all of it every day – the way we try to do for 6 year-olds.
It doesn’t have to be complicated.
In fact, it’s better if it isn’t that complicated.
Paring it down to the basics – if you were a 6-year old, would you be throwing an epic strop because of the kind of month you’ve had?
(Translate that to ‘grown-up you’ – that would translate to anxiety/low mood/arguments/repeat illness/addiction/lack of energy).
What’re the main things you need to attend to, starting now?
… to stay out of the headmaster’s office.
Love from Tanya & Claire xx
Also… if you are ready to fire on all cylinders?
To feel shinier and have all more fun?
Want to feel healthy and happy in your skin and carve out the perfect life FOR YOU
(not anyone else).
(sod anyone else)
