You’ve been sold a lie.

The lie that the purpose of life is to be happy

That you must always do things that make you happy

That the pursuit of happiness is not only your right, but also your obligation

And it’s up to you to spend your time (and money) seeking out different forms of self-gratification, moving towards pleasure and avoiding pain.

Looking for ways to make things easy whilst shying away from discomfort.

All the while assuming you’ve even been able to fully comprehend what happiness actually means.

As if it’s limited to satisfying all of your personal desires

In orientating your life towards those fleeting moments of pleasure

Going through life, just looking for your next fix,

This is how it has become understood, at least in the western modern sense.

Well what if I told you that happiness is not a feeling; 

It goes a little deeper than that.

And that perhaps the purpose of life is not to be happy at all, but rather to live a life that means something.

A life that is a reflection of your unique qualities and human potential.

Maybe the purpose of life is simply to have a purpose.

To stand for something – 

And commit yourself to something bigger than yourself.

In deciding to do, not what is easy, nor what makes you happy

But in doing what is right.

  • The Decision of No Decision
    Indecision is a decision in and of itself, even though you may not recognise it as such. Your decision to do nothing – to let things play out on their own. It’s taking a back seat and waiting to see how the chips may fall.
  • Taking Your Second Chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.
  • Symphony of Sadness
    There’s a great symphony in sadness A million things conspiring beautifully together to set a sombre tone. It’s a tragedy, no doubt.  Irrational at times, often transcending words or reason....
  • Communication Is Not a One Way Street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving It All Behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
