Your Journey to Your Version of Happiness and Success⠀
“You’re the average of the five people spend the most time with,” a quote most often said by motivational speaker Jim Rohn. ⠀
This quote irritates me so, because it's untrue and to a certain degree it is. ⠀
While I could give a multitude of examples of both, here's just a thought...⠀
We all have our own take and goals of happiness and success. Some people are very much content living a minimalist lifestyle which gives them the freedom to explore the world as nomads. Others choose to live a life grounded by faith and family, or others consider the ultimate goal to happiness and success to be millionaires and buy whatever they want and travel the world on a whim. ⠀
None of these choices have anything to do with the people you surround yourself with. These are moments in time that speak to you when you most need it in your life. That said, you will always benefit if you surround yourself with good people to talk you down during the dark times and lift you up into a state where you're a productive machine.⠀
Life is whatever you make it to be whether you have a good support system or not. Don't be afraid to go after whatever life you want. If you fail, you pick yourself up and strategize. ⠀
Anyways, just some food for thought this Saturday evening. ⠀
What do you guys think? Leave your comments below. 👇👇👇👇⠀
Much love and gratitude to you all. 🙏⠀

हम सब की फितरत होती है कुछ खोजते रहने की...कभी कुछ ऐसा जो हमे मिला ही नहीं। कभी कुछ ऐसा जो हमसे खो गया है। तो कभी कुछ ऐसा जो हमे छु के बस छुप गया हो। खोजना प्रवृति है हमारी। पर एक खोज है जो हम सबमें चलती रहती है..अनवरत..लगातार। इश्क़ की खोज। कोई किसी की आंखो में इश्क़ खोजता है तो कोई किसी के उड़ते हुए जुल्फों में। कोई किसी के छुवन में इश्क़ खोजता है तो कोई किसी से मिलन में। पर क्या हो कि इश्क़ खोजते हुए आपको चुनने का अधिकार मिल जाए। जब आपको चुनने को मिले एक प्रेम कहानी, अलग अलग प्रेम कहानियों में। मुस्कुराहट..हा यही आई ना आपके चेहरे पर?? हम सब तो खुद को भाग्यशाली मानेंगे अगर हमे दिखाई जाए कई कहानियां जिसमे किसी एक कहानी को चुनना हो। पर चुनाव इतने आसान कहा होते है?? ये इश्क़ के चुनाव का सफर इतना भी आसान नहीं है। आखिर कहानियां मैंने गढ़ी है। तो कहानियां उलझाएंगी..परेशान करेंगी सवाल खड़े करेंगी। अब देखना है नायक कितना सुलझा पाता है इस पहेली को। आपके लिए भी कुछ काम है...जो किताब में 20 दिन बाद मिलेगा। so the countdown begins here..just 20 days left. clue for book name is given in above paragraph...so now I'm giving you all a chance to guess the name of book 😋 comment your guessings in comment 😄 I'm waiting for comments.. you wait for book 😄

This is from my forthcoming book of poems, A Strange Country. Since it’s a huge pain to try to find a literary agent who gets what I’ve been trying to do with poetry and doing unsolicited submissions during open reading periods with various publishers is super fucking tedious, I’ll be going full DIY and independently publishing it via Amazon’s KDP services. I know that a number of you have used Amazon and honestly it’s reasonably good. My goal is to sell 500 copies of this to help cover some financial gaps that developed as a result of taking 3 months off when our baby was born. Anyway, I really spent way too much time obsessing over ever word in this book. It’s still not perfect but there are moments that occur that feel like something unique and living occurred. That’s all I could ever hope for in writing poems. Stay tuned for release date info. I really appreciate every one of you who take the time to read, like and comment. Sometimes I wonder what the point of this is, and I think really it’s the community of friends here that I have been so surprised to find. When I first started posting poetry here 4 or 5 months ago I had no expectation of what to expect. So I’m here for the community and to contribute whatever I can from my little corner of the internet. As they say where I come from, thank y’all so much! 😊
☀️ Sunday Wisdom ☀️
🌱 So many of us do extreme things in the pursuit of “finding ourselves”. We experiment, isolate and change in the hopes of discovering who we really are and what hides beneath the surface of our appearances.
🌱 These tactics are only separating you further from discovering what you are really seeking. The more you look outward in search of filling in the gaps on the inside, the more you are shooting blanks.
🌱 Finding yourself is a spiritual journey of inner movement. It takes bringing to light uncomfortable truths about yourself that only you are able to unravel the mysteries of. It takes understanding your thought patterns, habits and behaviours. Unravelling the whats and whys of who you are and things you do.
🌱 The more in tune you become with yourself, the more grounded you become in being able to handle adversities and external complications that arise. Enjoy the process of self discovery, for the biggest journey you will embark on is not where your feet will take you, but where your mind will lead you to discover 🔮

What’s your favorite summer temperature?
It’s been perfect mid-70s here on the coast and that’s my favorite weather - breezy but warm as the air comes through the bedroom windows!
I’ve spent way too much of this month laid up IN said bedroom (can we be over this illness already?🙄😭🤪) so here’s said stuck-in-bed, beautifully-breezy spot today. I’ve got decaf iced coffee, Wolverine having a rare Saturday afternoon nap beside me, and - since yesterday’s #fantasyonfriday theme was “Sizzling Hot Fantasy” - @amy_a_bartol’s sizzling book!!
Also, Amy is just the most adorable person and you should all rush to follow her🧡
Truth is, we all have our own path. The one thing that social media reminds us is that we aren’t “where we need to be”. Everyone else seems to have it all figured out. We are all doing the best we can. Some people will look at your life and tell you YOU ARE WRONG for not doing what everyone else is doing. Don’t spend time with those people. We all have our own journey. Remember that 💕
I hate that I had to be the one to leave, I hate that I basically had to give up on you and the possibility of us because you refused to see how much I cared for you and couldn’t see how much love I had for you. You gave all this up and for what? I suppose the last five years we spent with each other only meant something to one of us, at the same time I’m not surprised. I never meant much to you even on a good day but you always meant everything to me; even on the bad. I miss you every day but one day that’ll stop, I still think about you every day but one day that’ll stop too. I don’t want you back and if you tried to come back, I know better now than to let you back. I want to hate you more than I love you but right now I can’t, thank you for the last five years that you gave me but now it’s time for me to take my life back and along the way find a way to live it. Without you, no matter how much it hurts. #sincerelymiri#quotes#bymepoetryaus#writers#writerslife#writersofinstagram#writerscommunity#writersworld#wordforthought#poetry#poetrycommunity#poems#poem#poetsofinstagram#poets#poetrygram#poetrylife
