Are you willing to let the OLD pass so the NEW can emerge? 💥Not ready BUT willing?💥 .
My friends we are not often “ready” for the impactful changes, we just need to be willing for them to work in our lives if we want more than what we are currently settling for.
Are you ready for your NEW life?
Gratitude. The more blessing we receive, the rarer it seems to become. But you only need to pause and reflect to make up for lost time. We are so blessed and provided for. Of course, we work , apply our talents and gifts but we have opportunities available to apply them to. We are alive and prospering. Those of us on the lower end of the economic scale have much to be grateful for as well. Even with a struggle involved, we are living indoors in a heated, comfortable space with some food in the fridge. While it’s great to be all inclusive, here at the moneyhouse.us, we thank Jesus Christ for blessings we can’t find a number for. The Thanksgiving holiday but may be over, but we can celebrate a whole season of thanksgiving. moneyhouse.us
If there's one thing I've learned to do: it's to ALWAYS give BACK.
It's hard for me to take credit for any of the minor or major wins I've seen; when I know that the influence of the people, places, and positivity surrounding me are the real gas that produces me as an individual.
Don't get me wrong, I'm sure ANY one of us could all go the distance on our own if we really wanted to. I know I could. But I also know it would take a lot longer. It would be a lot lonelier. And it wouldn't be as fun.
That's why I think it's so important to give back. My thankfulness for the amazing people around me is never going anywhere.
People often ask why I agree to help out with so many different projects and initiatives. To be honest it comes down to two things: my desire to give back, and the naive believe that I can bite off more than I can chew and be fine.
That's slowly changing - but until then... I'm just thankful. 📸 @garyvee

🎧 Let It All Work Out
Responsibility: Que eye roll. It’s a bit of a merciless and punishing word isn’t it? This new theme to my week. How responsible is little Yohan? Knowledge is hunky dory until it’s dark. What to do with a dark truth bomb? Not the most popular type of truth to shine a bright light on is it? And if it’s not a bomb of my making- just because I happen to know where it is, and how much damage it can do- it doesn’t mean I know how to deactivate it. Yet what to do when no one else knows either? And have I not just recently healed my own dark truth bomb? Bit of a bargain with the devil I’ve given this bomb; suffer and heal or suffer and don’t- but It’ll cost you your freedom. What do you do when everyone prefers to ignore it for this very reason, even decorate it to make us all more at ease with the ominous ticking. Now, this bomb is next to someone I truly care about. So do I carelessly try? What a merciless and punishing word. Personally, I like to poetically believe true love trumps all, so true to my Vipassana practice, I accepted a responsibility no one else would. With one clear intention; to protect. The collateral being pain and suffering. You see if I report this to authorities, they would simply lock that bomb far underground. So to be responsible I realised all I can do is flip a coin, by flicking it I’ve already hurt a lot of irresponsible people’s feelings. For me, the coin is true love protection. It’s guaranteed to protect my loved one. I just hope it lands on healing and understanding, but if it lands on punishing and merciless. I’ve already accepted responsibility for that too. Now that I’ve accepted responsibility, when I look in the mirror I see an honest face with a complicated expression. I look healing, understanding, punishing and merciless. I can only hope those irresponsible people I’ve asked for help, will help deactivate and heal at least two of those four. Ah, but which half will they choose? Have I helped them become more responsible? Or have they helped me become punishing and merciless? I think I’m beginning to understand why so many of us avoid responsibility when we can.
