In a world that doesn’t truly care about you, that doesn’t care about your well-being or the well-being of those you love the most, it is important that you not let all this mess with your peace of mind nor deprive you of your sense of equanimity.

How you cultivate this mental calmness is through meditation and to create a space where you can get away from it all and recollect your consciousness. Then, you remind yourself that each circumstance is arbitrary and doesn’t have feelings of its own or else it would consider yours before occuring.

Everything in this world happens with or without your consent and doesn’t care if or if you don’t have a problem with it. It is important to let go of things that are not important, complete the ones that are, and to disregard the things you can’t change.

The only difference you can make is a difference in your own life, and sometimes that difference can inspire someone else to make a difference in their lives. You don’t have to save the world or be this extraordinary individual, it is perfectly fine to live the life that you want to live that is tailored for you and no one else.

You were not put here to live out other people’s failed lives for them. You were put here to make sure your life and your happiness are achieved each and every day by doing things that are conducive to your goals and ambitions.

Equanimity and peace of mind allow you to think and to do what’s best for you without the added stress of considering individuals who likely don’t consider you.

It is time that you put yourself first and stop being so selfless all the time. Disclaimer: nothing wrong with being selfless, but you must be selfish enough to take care of yourself FIRST, before taking care of others.

Alright, that’s my spiel. Til next week!
