Everybody has heard of the old cliché of life not being about the destination but about the journey.
I have to say for my self that is not that easy. Why would we ignore the life learning adventures only to get somewhere and have no understanding or memories of how we got there?
What about self achievement?
And so stop trying to finish things off and enjoy the process. Instead If I catch my self trying to finish things off then I stop and walk away.
Doing something deserves the proper time it needs.

Let me ask you are you really happy with everything you do?
We need to know, use and control happiness to expect to have it.
Putting it simply we need command of what we do. This can be in a super small action but gives us so much more if we are successful.
We need to gain personal appreciation in what we do otherwise why do the things we do?
For two long painstaking months I had not wrote anything and I could not even if I wanted.
The time taught me that to make something I had to be immersed into it but I was not.
Practice What you Preach!
Sometimes we just don’t follow our own words.
Bring on the Passion
I had come to believe in a saying that for a while I did not practice and that was to live and breathe in what you love.
Now it all seems so clear that to achieve my goals of writing more ESL books I need to live in that world completely. But not just that, I would also need to not expect anything to be easy because I wrote 3 books so far.
Be the Newbie
My hard learned lesson to share with you all is to do something and see it for the first time otherwise prejudice will affect the outcome.
Look at each thing you do and live the moment. Look at something with fresh eyes and no with no expectations otherwise self inflicted thoughts may hurt you.
If you feel you have nothing in your life, then think of those who are cold, lonely and have nowhere to live.
If you feel your house is too small, then think of those in other countries that live in squalor with no water or electricity.
If you feel your car is too old and needs to be replaced because others have a better one than you, then think of those who walk to school or work that takes hours to get there.
We should always be grateful for all the things around us.
I am grateful for the things I have including two wonderful kids that are happy and healthy.
