Attraction: Choosing someone to complete you

Some believe that we are attracted to someone because they have genes that are complementary to ours.
For example: If you have genes for weak lungs, you may be attracted to someone who has genes for strong lungs.
What’s the reasoning behind this theory? In an evolutionary sense, finding someone to complete you genetically increases the chances of having stronger offspring with a greater chance of survival.

This theory states that we all have genetic matches and that we pick up how genetically compatible someone is to us through a type of energetic wave.

On the other hand, if you attract someone to fill your emotional (rather than genetic) gaps, when you learn to become more self-sufficient you may feel you no longer need them…

Behaviour is not necessarily a true projection of who you are

"We are what we repeatedly do." – Aristotle
Our character, basically, is a composite of our habits.
"Sow a thought, reap an action; sow an action, reap a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny,"

BUT…
Your behaviour is not necessarily you. It is a temporary demonstration of how you react to certain situations and conditioning and it’s all learned, and can therefore be unlearned if you so choose.

Since behaviour does not necessarily project your true inner being, changing your behaviour does not change who you are inside.

Love Hurts – but that’s no reason to close your heart

Not everyone can return your love, but that’s OK. Don’t close your heart because that ensures no-one will be able to enter it again! Opening your heart allows someone to open their heart to you…

Life is like a movie…

If your life is like a movie, what role do you take in that movie?

Are you the actor who in spite of seeming to be in control of your actions on the stage, is in fact controlled by the director and not being your true self?
Are you the backstage helper who simply ensures things are running smoothly, but letting all the excitement pass them by as other people call the shots around them?
or Are you the director who makes sure that the plot content of the movie is
fun, exciting and successful (otherwise the movie will be a flop!)

In the movie of your life, only you can decide what job you take.
You can even be the director AND the star of the show…

"One day, I decided I was tired of watching movies and seeing others go off on adventures, and decided to start living the adventure of my own life myself!" – James Blade

Things to consider:
Set: Where is your movie set? Which country? City/ countryside/ seaside etc?
Wardrobe
Scenes: What kind of scenes are important to include?
Co-actors: Who are your co-stars?
Action: What kind of interaction will your co-stars have?
Script: What kind of dialogue will make the movie interesting?
Ending: What is the end result of the movie?

It’s just a ride, it’s just a ride
no need to run, no need to hide
It’ll take you round and round
Sometimes you’re up
sometimes you’re down
It’s just a ride, it’s just a ride
don’t be scared
don’t hide your eyes
It may feel so real inside
but don’t forget it’s just a ride

Living the Life that is True to Yourself

In today’s society, we are sometimes brainwashed to think that there is a particular solution to living a "normal", "happy" and "fulfilling" life.
But the truth is, that we are all unique, all with different requirements, and we each need to find our own route to happiness and fulfillment. In order to do this, we must question some of the rules society dictates, and some of the rules we’ve been living by, and we need to assess whether these "rules" are really right for us. If yes, great keep at it; If no, then you can go about seeking out new ways of living your life that suit you. You can find your path, and even if in your search you mess up a little along the way, the important thing is that you are progressing towards being true to yourself and no matter what embarassments happen along the way, you’ll still be alive and kicking.

The Door

Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself.

Compete against yourself

I never compete against the competition. The only one I compete
against is myself, because one day I will beat the competition and then
who will I compete against? – Billie Akauola
