List of Life

List of Future Plans 26/365, originally uploaded by Jearvi.

Sometimes you can go into a relationship wanting one thing, but getting something else.

I went into a new relationship wanting to be looked after – to have someone to “do it all for me” (yes, very naive I know!) and here, 6 months later, I feel inspired to further establish my own career.

In theory, I’d expect myself to feel disgruntled and short-changed in some way, but on the contrary. What I feel is a growing sense of accomplishment and achievement, that I’m building and creating something.

This person is a very creative individual and often we, as human beings, rub our qualities off on each other.

Interestingly enough, the thing that attracted me to him in the first place, was a tag signature line at the bottom of his initial correspondence, “… create a great day”

I had a list in my mind, at the time, of what I wanted in a partner. Creativity wasn’t there at all. Or so I thought! But unconsciously, that’s something I desired.

My whole level of creativity is something that’s expanded. I used to draw, write poetry years ago as an expression of this, as a way to channel my feelings. I stopped doing that a couple of years back.

Now, I write. I put pen to paper and just let it flow. And I find that I really enjoy it. I really enjoy creating!

So, I guess, as always, what I’m saying is that sometimes, (maybe even more than sometimes) we think we want one thing, yet really want another, or alternatively, we leave off the “list of life” the one quality, person or experience, that will make our life even more incredible.

One Persons’ Rubbish…

046/365 – Trash or Treasure?, originally uploaded by ( lindsey ).

I’ve been feeling really unworthy to write a post for my blog

“I don’t think anyone will read it and even if they do, I think that they’ll think it’s rubbish” have been the thoughts going around in my mind.

This has been my struggle. Thinking that I’ve got nothing worth saying.

It was only yesterday that I attended a course, in which I noticed that upon sharing our responses to certain questions, other people picked up on different aspects of what had been said. A couple of times, things that I’d mentioned on a passing note, had been commented on as having touched or triggered something in another, or some fleeting comment from someone else, had began a long lasting train of thought in my own mind.

That’s when I remembered the saying that , “One persons’ rubbish is another’s treasure”. That what could hold little value for one, might be of great value to another.

So after spending over a month thinking that I had nothing of value to say, here I am, writing about this realization, sharing it, as I’m sure I’m not be the only person in the world who has ever felt this.

Funnily enough, in all the years of “teaching” and facilitating different personal development groups, I’ve always found that what makes the most difference is people’s realization that they’re not the only one who feels or thinks “that way”, or who has difficulty in a particular area of life. The connections made within the group bring about the greatest transformations, and that’s often one of acceptance, more than change. For me, it’s always a joy and honour to behold.

Now, as I prepare to post this, I feel secure in the knowledge that I’ve fulfilled my commitment to myself to continue exploring the blogging journey I began in October and that just maybe, someone “out there” will find what I’ve written of use to them in their life.
