This week there is just one quote I can’t get out of my head. ‘Bend the world to fit you, don’t bend to fit the world‘. These are the words of; Mr. Ben Brown; YouTuber/ creative content creator/ photographer/ film maker/ traveller/ absolute legend. This past year, after almost burning out, I’m trying to figure out how to make drastic changes in my life that benefit me and my mental health and how to be more in control without losing myself in the process. And I can tell you so far; it’s a bloody mess.
Changing your old and rusty habits does not go overnight. Obviously. It takes time. It’s all about learning how to know what your boundaries are and learning what is good for you, without turning into a narcissist. I’ve always
As we speak, I am fully in the process of changing things around, basically by taking better care of myself and making choices that benefit me and my personal growth.
As a kid, I never took
And so I did. I studied at the University of Bangkok,
It’s so easy to drown in daily life though and all the things that come with it. Now being 40 years old, I feel it is time to shift and change my mantra’s I’ve gotten so used to around. I find it a lot harder then I used to though. When you are in your twenties you still have a sense of innocent enthusiasm to jump into new things and not think about it. In my perception, being
I still have so many doubts and insecurities to overcome… Even writing this article took me about forever and I’m scared shitless to share my deepest thoughts with the rest of the world, let alone my close friends and acquaintances, just because of what they will think. I know though that this is something I have to do for me. Because it helps me grow, develop my skills and best of all; myself as a person, which could open new doors.
So by keeping that in mind, how can I bend the world to fit me without losing my compassion nor becoming a self centred bitch? I guess by following my intuition more than ever. Trusting that whatever my gut feeling is telling me is truth (which is not easy as I’ve ignored that inner voice more than once). Whatever feels good and makes me happy, is the right path to take. Easier said then done, but I’m going for it. Bending the world to fit me is about knowing what my boundaries are and telling others (and myself) what I need and don’t need. What’s good for my mental health and what drains my energy. Taking (baby) steps to get me closer to my goals. Stop conforming to what other people want without keeping me and my needs in mind. And choose. Choose happiness, choose kindness, choose progress, choose change, choose growth and take the risk of falling flat on my face. Bending the world to fit me is putting my dreams and desires into action and trying to live fearless. It’s about trusting the universe that you will be served with the things you need to move forward and grow. Tag along and follow my journey. <3
