Sometimes, moving along takes awhile. Bags can get heavy and you can loose your direction. Once you realize it, then you get back on the horse and keep on moving along.
Being born into this world is a challenge. Each one of us must face a battle before we take our first breath. We are given nature and nurture. Each experience is different and unique to itself. We are full of the same stardust, however each genome is different. We go at life with our own built-in personality shaped by our environment. We are each given free will and a potentially high functioning brain. At first, life happens. We do as we believe is the best we can do. We do as we are expected in many instances. At some point in everyone’s life we come to a crossroads. We go about life the best we can until we know better which should lead us to make a course correction. We eventually have to ask, do we go on as we are or do we evolve?
Beginning again is hard work. Life is more than just breathing and getting along, it’s about building ourselves and building for the next generation. Life is not about working and having fun. Life is about Learning Innate Friction Expansion. It is in these moments that we live with our friends, family and our business partners. It is in those moments that we find solace, direction, and abundance of love, joy, and happiness along with pain, suffering and most importantly growth. Life does happen, however we are our own captain in how we chose to address our life happenings and our life direction. We may have been dealt a certain hand, but we have been equip with a high functioning brain that can and will expand when free will is exerted with an open, flexible mind pressed with friction.
L: Life should be spent LEARNING
I: Life should be infinitely INNATE in nature based on our contributions to it.
F: Life should be full of FRICTION.
E: Life should be free to continuous EXPANSION.
With this definition of life, one will eventually fulfill their true potential. Depending on where and/or who the friction comes from will shape our future. The question becomes what angle do we choose to view this friction and what approach do we decide to take.
Each life needs to be approached with goals and steps at some point. The element of living in the moment needs to occur, but without this general guidance and plan in life; life only happens. We end up just breathing, god-willing, and just trying to get by.
Everything in life is either a decision or a reaction. Decide to build your life and live it to your fullest potential. Instagram has visibly shown us a tangible way to view our snap shots in life through many different filters. Some filters are complimentary and others are muting. Is the angle you choose to view your life complimentary or muting?
Chances are, you are facing challenges in your life right now. Are you choosing to acknowledge your challenges and look to solve them or are you in denial and choosing to blame others for the circumstances in your life and our world? Most often, we choose to deny and blame.
Today, choose to live your life the way you want BE through a conscious decision and a positive reaction. This is easier said than done. Chances are, you will face these same challenges your entire life until your choose to acknowledge your shortcomings and focus on your goals in what you expect to get out of life. Don’t let life be left to pomp and circumstance. Choose to live it the way you envision it in your dreams. Choose to live life to your fullest potential; don’t just let circumstance choose you.
