Had a nice little introverty couple of hours this weekend – a bit of tidying (anyone else finds tidying things really therapeutic??) I’m probably one of the most neurotic, A-type personalities you’ll ever come across.😉 I love checking things off my to-do and goal lists. Everything has to be perfect, and planned and organised and neat. The truth is, it can be exhausting. (but it was mandatory and that’s all that matters)
Also popped into a music shop and saw the most beautiful Grand Piano (practically had to be pulled away from it😯) It reminded me how much I love the piano. I’m not particularly good at playing it as I only took up playing a few years in my late teens, but at that time I practiced religiously. While I’m painfully RUSTY, it does feels good to be at it again. I feel incredibly overwhelmed that I did NOT give in or give up! Sometimes it require a little extra effort on our side to get things up and running again.
Put all your soul into it🎵play the way you feel ~ Chopin~ This quote, however, reminded me to make time for the things I love. While we can’t start out perfect at anything we can get better – with time, with practice, with patience, we will get there and maybe, just maybe all the hard work will pay off, and our dreams will become a reality.
It’s hard to put the joy of playing the piano into words. Little moments, I think are just magical. They make you realise how meaningful life can be. I often ask myself, if the Piano is worth learning. Is it possible to achieve anything? Is it a suitable hobby? Being the perfectionist, that I am (always wanting to know everything to make sure it goes according to my standards) This quote = Truth “Have no Fear of Perfection. You‘ll never reach it.” – Salvador Dali – I am reminded that I am far from perfect. We are imperfect human beings and we all need to learn to love ourselves for what we are, and everything we hope to become.
Little in life is as important as finding your purpose. I’m convinced if we could get hold of God’s purpose for us, really sense what he has for us, that would completely reshape how we see our lives. It would transform what we do with our blessings. The ultimate purpose of your life is not about you. You exist for God’s glory. I exist for God’s glory. “The heavens declare the glory of God”.
I’ve learnt the most important lesson of all – Sometimes we live life too afraid to open our wings and shine. What if for one second we live our life, with hope, with belief that deep down we are truly deserving of happiness. We ourselves are responsible for our happiness. If you provide yourself a certain level of happiness, nobody will ever be able to take it away from you.
We do not need magic to transform the world. We carry all the POWER we need inside ourselves ALREADY ~ J K ROWLING
