got to keep on moving
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m at the point in my life I can’t keep on just sitting still. I’m always moving or doing something, so you have to find a way to keep moving. This is the key to keeping in your life.
Its called movement. To be honest I think a lot of people don’t realize that they have to keep moving in order to keep their life in balance. The key to actually having your life balance is not to ever stop moving. If you want to do something you have to do it, but if you want to stop moving, then you have to stop.
The key to balance is movement. How you move does matter. When you sit and keep your weight on your feet, you are still. The same goes for walking or going up hills or down stairs. When you go up or down you actually change your position in the world so you are not just at the same spot as someone else. To be honest I think most people just get the idea that you have to move. They just don’t realize that it is a choice.
We tend to be bad at making choices. We have to constantly remind ourselves to be mindful of our choices which are usually small, which is why we struggle the most. We do this by always making choices that we know will help us move forward. One of my favorite quotes in the world is “you can either do what others tell you, or you can do what you know is right.
I always feel like I got to choose to do what I know is right. It’s not always easy, but when you’re not sure what’s right, it’s easy to just say, “I’ll move this way.” By doing this, you’re leaving yourself open to criticism, but I think it’s worth it to make the choice to make the choice that you know is right.
By being in the habit of making choices that we know will help us move forward, we are creating a self-fulfilling prophecy. We don’t want to be in a rut, we don’t want to be stuck in a rut, we want to keep on moving.
This is all good stuff but I think that a lot of people dont realize how often self-awareness can be a negative thing. For example, I believe that self-awareness is the key to our success as a society. I am aware that I have a disability which I have worked hard to overcome. I am aware that I am not a very good swimmer, but theres plenty of people who can swim.
I am aware that I have a serious case of the hiccups and that I am prone to fits of rage. I am aware that I need lots of sleep but it is not my issue. I am aware that I should not be in a car with three people, but it is not my concern. I am aware that this is a very high risk job, but I am not concerned.
I’m not sure if I’m supposed to be aware of all these things or not, but I am. So I’ve decided that, since I’m not always in one place, I’ll have to keep working and keep moving forward. This makes sense when you think about it. A society that is only capable of moving forward is a society that is not capable of being at all.
The idea of never having a fixed location is the antithesis of what being truly engaged means. I believe that to be true, and I see no reason to doubt it.
