Experience Your Life Blog

Every day we set ourselves a listSteps to Achieving Your Goals of good intentions and goals that we would like to accomplish.  And yet we often over esimate the amount that we can accomplish in any one twenty-four hour period.

How can you find a way to recommit to these intentions you set to manifest change and not feel that it is just one more things to do in the your busy day? 

This beautiful piece of wisdom was recently sent to me by a friend of mine.  As we enter into the new year this seems like a great perspective to carry with us during trying times.

An aging Hindu master grew tired of his apprentice complaining,
and so, one morning, sent him for some salt. When the apprentice
returned, the master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful
of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it.
“How does it taste?” the master asked.
“Bitter,” spit the apprentice.

As the New Year opens ahead we find ourselves bubbling up with great ideas of the things we want to do in our lives.  And yet as the year progresses we find that we lose focus and little ever seems to happen or change.  The things you dream of don’t seem to be appearing in your life.

It seems like the world is in such a rush these days with anxiety and worry being at the forefront of the emotional tsunami that is threatening to overwhelm much of our sanity. And yet this is just another moment.

A lot of people spend a lot of time trying ot figure out the best way to change their lives.  Often they think in large, grand sweeping scale, such as moving to France, opening an organic restaurant, and living a life of luxury.  These big deams can be inspiring but often it is hard to know where to start to make them come true.
