Trying to put a price on giving of yourself,your time,your energy,your experience can,and is,a difficult thing to do.When all is said and done,whatever we can do for others is always better done with a pure motive.Yes,it’s true that non of us can honestly say that what we do is always totally altruistic,but when we strive to give of ourselves in a positive way ,it can,and does,make a difference to others.
Today,people have made a profound difference to my life by just being there.Yes,while it’s true hat many possess qualities that I marvel at,they the,selves wouldn’t picture themselves in that arena of excellence,however,I do.As I meditate on what others do for me,I am in awe of others and what they can do.
This level of giving means that I can energise myself for life again tomorrow,and it means that I’m better equipped to carry on with a more positive outlook on life.While it’s true that we all should strive to manifest this positive attitude,it’s so much better when others have that knack in f just listening ,or saying the thing that makes us really get the point.Im a very emotional man,of that I’m well aware,and I often think in an emotional way,which,of itself,isn’t necessarily wrong.However,if that were my exclusive decision toolbox,then I know that I might flounder from one crisis to another.So,through the spoken word,the written words of sages and those around me with a far more wise head,I find myself being drawn to the sensible magnetic North direction,avoiding those hidden granite rocks under that Atlantic coastal shore as I sail into my safe emotional port,and free from those emotional storms that we all face.
Of course,many might feel that they don’t need guidance from anyone,that they are somehow impervious from hiccups in life.That said,I feel that when we have a stock take of some of the things that we do,without the wisdom of others,the guidance that they bring,we surely would be in quite a mess at times.So,tonight,on this rather stormy August night,I’ve taken a stock take of the emotional escapes that have allowed me to achieve a more buoyant life,a more rounded life.
If I write in a way that appears too emotional,then maybe this blog isn’t for you,but I am interested in the interdependence that I feel we all need,that resistance of “emotional Island status” sent a default that I would prescribe too.Asking for advice is,to me,not a sign of weakness,but is a strength.Manifesting ethical fortitude is a salient characteristic that should be a benchmark of all teachers.
Today,I’ve sought help,I’ve learnt ,I’ve grown by admitting that I need help.
Maybe you might have found this blog of some help.Thank you for your patience in despifoning my terrible spelling .
