As always funerals can bring the good and the not so good out of people and as always yesterday was no different but from my perspective the angst was about people who thought others were intruding in something so painful and raw for those close to the person. The difference I suspect is the age and how passionate people were to let the family know just how much she touched others lives in such a short time. There were nearly 500 people there and as a parent knowing we raise children who do good with what they learn is reassurance that as a parent in some way we are doing good. Whilst everything is personal allowing others to do what feels right for them equally important and owning our decisions even more so.
As I did something for someone this morning I was reminded that we can only truly give from a full cup and we must learn to give without expectation because so many people are running on empty they do not see you or hear you and never will not because of you but because of how they feel about themselves and yet when you are truly in alignment with you, the ability to see accept and understand this will equally give you the strength to know that life gives us either what we can handle or what we can learn and grow from..which we choose is up to us and what we decide will determine what happens next.
We can never control what is but we can become the person that has a perception that allows what will be and is so dedicated to themselves they trust just that little bit more than they fear ..if you want to see change be the change and ensure that with self responsibility comes the ability to create the life you love not the one made up of someone else’s fears. Life will always have waves and storms but we get to choose where they take us so choose wisely because when our time is up having left footprints in others peoples hearts is a great way to live life to the full. #mindset#resilience#nervoussystem#neuroplasticity#gutbrain#youareenough#trust#functionalmedicine#fear#anxiety#beliefs#wellbeing#perception#allow#liveyourlifewell#cbt#human#keepitreal
This is a common human reflex when someone else’s “perception” unveils a truth we don’t want to see. I can guarantee what comes next is silence. It is at the 🍎 core of our newly acquired and curated cognitive dissonance. I’d rather be wrong. #digital#communication#human#hallucinations

There’s a grace when the heart is under fire
Another way when the walls are closing in
And when I look at the space between
Where I used to be and this reckoning
I know I will never be alone
There was another in the fire
Standing next to me
There was another in the waters
Holding back the seas
And should I ever need reminding
Of how I’ve been set free
There is a cross that bears the burden
Where another died for me
Another reason I (sometimes) love walks is that, like my showers, I get the opportunity to clear my head and get better perspective.
The words in the picture aren't just referring to a business context. Even in our lives and respective spheres of influence, we have to question our motive and our purpose?
And for those of us (basically ALL of us, myself included) who can sometimes get lost in the dark side of social media, we gotta remember and embrace what @jayshetty and @garyvee preach which is ultimately the message come before the metrics.
