How to shape our lives

"The trick is in what one emphasises. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same."

Author Carlos Castaneda


I like to think that I am a reasonably capable handyman, always looking to create something rather than pop out and buy the shop version. Like building a shelf or an outdoor table or repairing something instead of throwing it out. I convince myself I’m doing the world a favour by fixing something rather than adding to the rubbish mountain.


However, when I calculate the effectiveness of a project, post a masterpiece being accomplished, I often question how long it took me, how many times I had to go and buy extra materials and how aesthetically pleasing the outcome really is!


But then the feeling of contentment and accomplishment I get from expending my own personal sweat and tears makes the whole thing a worthwhile project to me - and beneficial to my overall wellbeing.


What we choose to 𝘢𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘺 in life will go a long way to 𝘴𝘩𝘢𝘱𝘦 our life.
