Someone asked me this morno for an example of what "having your shit together" looks like. I responded by saying;
"I think someone who has their shit together is simply someone who knows why they wake up each morning."
He probably expected me to reel off a whole bunch of jam to do with money, girls, house etc...
As I move through this life, I see more and more of the ideas around success start to fall through.
Particularly when it comes to status and wealth, I used to think that's what having your shit together meant.
But as I've travelled, experienced and met people with objectively a very well built temple in that department... they weren't always that happy. Now I'm not saying wealthy people aren't happy, just not as bullet-proof happy as I thought growing up.
What I have seen so far is this;
it's the people that have a clearly formed idea of why they wake up each morning, they seem to have their shit together. That deep understanding, it translates to the rest of their external life.
Of course this is just my personal account, but it makes sense.
Regardless of whether they have ten zeros or no zeros on their statement, they keep looking up. Their lives aren't determined by the external, but by their internal measure. The journey means more to them than the rewards so promised at the end.
So I keep checking in each morning to remember why I wake up. I think it's more important than most other measures in this world.
Hepi topu bir avuç insanız işte...
Dikkat bu fotoğraf avuç içinde bir adet cam teras içerir, cam terasta da insanlar var, valla bak, dikkatli bak ayol😁
(Bunu belirtmem gerekirdi, o kadar uğraştım farkedilmezse üzülürüm🤪)
Herkese mutlu haftalaaaar🌸🙏🏻💚
The greatest gift to a traveller is when you stumble upon a beautiful place whilst roaming the streets and meet some of the greatest souls you would never have otherwise. Thanks to the talented @joel___alvarez for taking this stunning picture for me. How gorgeous is this Chinese garden in the middle of Chinatown, Vancouver city centre.
590/60 - Just got back to Vancouver after spending 3 days on the island with no phone signal and internet. At first I thought it would be very difficult to live without internet connection, social media (my beloved Instagram) and talking to people on my phone. But 3 days gone by, it was surprisingly easy. I didn’t feel like grabbing my phone and check social media at all and just really enjoyed my time with friends beside me, animals (pet and wild) and nature. But I’m happy to be back in the real world and getting hungry for poutine.
