You Have the Life You’re Willing to Put Up With

“You have the life you’re willing to put up with”.

Think about it, what are the problems of those heinous dark shadows currently spoiling the warmth and happiness of your otherwise blissful life?

🎯 Do you hate your job?
🎯 Are you in a bad relationship?
🎯 Is there something wrong with your health?

Fine! Get a new job, end the relationship, change your diet and exercise or locate the kind of help you need. Seems simple doesn’t it?

Even when it comes to the things you seemingly had no say in, like the death of a loved one, losing your business … you have a massive say and the ways you live your life in the aftermath of those events.

If you’re not willing to take the actions to change your situation, in other words if you’re willing to put up with your situation then whether you like it or not that is the life you have chosen. Before you say … “but” or start to get your knickers in a twist let me say one more thing. By defending your circumstances as they are right now, you are actually making a case for being where you are. Give it up. No buts. You can’t afford them they’re excess baggage on a trip that requires you to travel light.


“Circumstances don’t make the man, and they only reveal him to himself.”


That’s a quote by Epictetus as Epictetus points to – the true meaning of who you are won’t be found in your circumstances but rather the way in which you respond to them. To start this new process, you must first stop another one!”

What Do You Do to Enhance Your Life?

⚠️ I am a ridiculously PASSIONATE person, I don’t think that anyone who knows me would disagree. That works to my advantage the majority of the time and at times to my disadvantage … sometimes I need to be dialled down or be more mindful in the way that I communicate 💬 my passion, and, it’s all part of who I am and what I am working on – on transforming my life into one that I love and that I’m passionate about and MOST OF ALL … THAT I CREATED for myself.

The things that I’m working on aren’t to change who I am or the life that I have – I love MY life and I am truly blessed, I’m grateful for that every day

I do these things to ENHANCE myself and my life, not because there’s anything WRONG with me or my life. I want to be clear, some people have suggested to me that I’m constantly “on the go” because I’m “always reaching for something”. While I hear that point of view on the outside looking in, it’s simply untrue,  because there’s nothing wrong with me to change, I’m perfectly awesome just the way that I am (WE ALL ARE). I believe that we all have room to transform ourselves and our lives into anything we truly want. That’s who I am and what I stand for

One of the many things I have been dedicating my time to in the last few months is The David Suzuki Blue Dot Movement 🔵, in addition to passion projects I’m assisting with for Love Train ❤️🚂  and She Stands – End Bullying 🚫.

I love helping, I love seeing people succeed. I devote my time to people and projects that are important to me. I want a better world and love seeing that there are so many other passionate folks out there creating businesses, foundations, workshops, events, causes – people that I know and am personally aligned with MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN LIFE EVERY DAY. I’m so honoured to be part of their causes and dreams 💭 and for the stand they’re taking in making the world 🌎  a better place.

These are the things I’m working toward and that I’m working on — moving to SEAsia isn’t just about a year off to travel ✈️ for me – it’s to work on creating change – volunteering for programs there that help clean the environment, educate and getting to know them and their community – how I can help.

It’s to try to do my part in making a difference and taking a stand for things that truly matter to me.

What are you passionate about? What things to do stand for?
