Silent Barking

Today’s thought has been brewing for awhile. But this morning, after my meditation, the first post I saw was one telling you what you need to “stop” doing. An expression of what you shouldn’t settle for. And in the comment one simple, and pointless question, “do you agree?”. It stokes the old fire of my dislike for social media, but it’s different now.

Now I want to tell you that the sentiments of these type of posts are true, and you know it is because you can feel the dissonance it creates in you. But I’m not going to tell you that these type of posts are true because you’re worth it. You already know you are. Nor that they’re true because you deserve better. You know that too.

These type of posts, while fishing for likes to beat an algorithm, are true because you are searching for something better. Something more out of life. But these type of posts keep you focussed on what you don’t want. So I’m going to give you my advice on how to get where you do.

First, know that “there” is your ideal life experience. And getting there doesn’t mean settling for less, or expecting more. It means focusing on what you enjoy doing. And then enjoy doing it over and over so you get really good at it. Because doing that is getting “there.”
