Making Judgements

So after a bit of a tiring week (since I started a new job), which I am super proud of myself for getting… I didn’t really know what to write about. I’ve been absorbing so much new information that my brain has just been overloaded, but in a good way, I love learning new things and being challenged so for me this is really cool. After going on a run this evening something suddenly clicked for me, I wasn’t even particularly thinking about it but it makes sense to write about.

See when I was job searching I struggled because I know I’m an intelligent individual with tons of potential, yet a lack of degree and experience in the necessary fields… Therefore I struggled to accept that I might have to start from the bottom and work my way up career wise. Butttttttttt, there’s nothing at all wrong with that.

My point is, is that I was judging myself for not starting my dream job immediately. So that’s what this post is about, I think the trouble is, some of us (and I know it can’t just be me) are so hard on ourselves and hard on other people because we are too judgmental about a situation that we are currently in that we end up producing this negative energy (which by the way doesn’t look good on anyone who wears it).

By observing everything with optimism, and positivity we automatically start being easier on ourselves too. What I’m trying to say is to stop judging other people and you will in turn stop judging yourself. If you laugh at an overweight person with your friends as you walk past them in the street chances are you look at yourself in the mirror and claim how ‘fat’ you are. Your insecurities reflect in how you perceive other people, and it just creates such negativity.

The moment I stopped judging myself for starting up in a career that I knew I didn’t want to do for life, just; something to get me going, a foot in the door of an amazing company with endless opportunities the Universe granted me with that something.

Am I making any sense? I hope so, I tend to type at the speed of my mind, and that runs pretty fast sometimes!

“Stop judging other people and you will stop judging yourself.”

Making your mentality so much more healthy, and making you more of an attractive person to other people! Try it for a day, challenge yourself to be more open minded, not closed off with judgements on why people are the way they are or look the way the look. That’s not for you to judge. Be positive and sympathetic, and great things will follow.

All my love,

The Letter we should all write to ourselves…

Dear me,

I am beautiful, bold, brave, courageous and kind. I am doing amazing, working towards all my goals.

I am grateful for everything the Universe has gifted me so far, and I have even more gratitude for everything that is to come.

I am so strong. I have continued walking even in the hardest, darkest days; through rejection, anger and emotional states. I am still standing.

Everything I have been through has humbled me and made me into a stronger, better person.

There are no negatives in anything, just love and lessons to be learnt from.

I will constantly do the things I love, that keep me focused and inspire me to go after my biggest aspirations.

I am so proud of who I am. I love myself for staying true to who I am through it all.

Thank you Universe,

Hannah

… thought I’d share this. It’s a letter I wrote to myself one morning, sometimes I find writing down positive affirmations can really help if you’re not in the best mood. By doing this daily you’ll eventually start to believe them too, try it for yourself perhaps. Also I want to apologise for being MIA again. I have some important shifts happening in my life right now, things are beginning to re-align, and I’m excited.

All my love,

HG

Lets Get Deep

Hello beautiful world! Today I wanted to enlighten you all on a new book that I’m reading, since I’m all about soul searching and motivational writing. This one is called- The Seat of the Soul: An Inspiring vision of humanity’s spiritual destiny written by Gary Zukav.

To those of you who perhaps don’t believe in souls, or a higher being, whether you call it the Universe or God, this may seem a little daunting to you. But I beg don’t click off this post just yet! The concept of souls, and spirituality doesn’t have to be super serious, we don’t need to all run around naked in fields or make excessive humming sounds in a dark room to feel connected to our souls or have a sense of spirituality- although if that’s what it is for you, go get it!

I think so many people dismiss everything around this topic because it hasn’t been proved by science and blah blah blah. There’s no physical evidence and blah blah blah. Anddddd this is a book, and we all know how people in my generation (I’m a melenial baby by the way) dismiss books in general because they’re not fast paced enough for the culture we live in (which I totally disagree with- by the way).

One of the points Zukav introduces in the first chapter of this book is that many people only view the world as the physical place that it is, understandable right since there’s no proof of an invisable realm? The trouble is that by limiting ourselves to the belief of that of the physical realm the basis of life becomes fear, because it’s all about ‘Survival of the fittest’, we feel this need to control our environment and those within it. This power desired to control our environment, this physical dominance, is external therefore it can be lost, brought or stolen.

Money itself is the very symbol of external power. Those with more money have more ability to control their envirnment, because it gives a sense of security to us it becomes an external power. We all fear vulnerability, because of external power.

I don’t know if that made any sense to some of you, but that was me trying to summarise half of the first chapter. Authentic power is deeper, it’s loving without judgement, it’s aliging thoughts and emotions with our higher selves so we are filled with enthusiasm and a sense of purpose. No more fear, because we are no longer victims to external power. Effectively, if you’re living in a state of fear, the decisions you make are going to be unconscious ones meaning you’ll go on evolving unconsciously. By connecting to your soul, trusting in a higher being, you will be choosing more consciously and therefore evolving consciously finding greater meaning in everything you do and getting more fulfillment from life.

“Every circumstance and situation gives you the opportunity to choose this path, to allow your soul to shine through you.”

It may all sound pretty intense to some of you, but even if you don’t believe in spirituality there’s a whole lot to learn from this book (this is not an AD- by the way) just in terms of phycology! Pushing aside the Universe and God the concept of opening your eyes to something bigger than our eyes allow us to see is crazy. Give it a try, you might enjoy it.

All my love,

HG
