The one thing that stands out more than ever now in Phase 3, is that under no circumstances do I want to return to the manic lifestyle of before.
I have learnt that my health and well being are actually the most important thing that I should concentrate on. I’ve accepted that what I mostly focus on will dominate my day and that if I actually make a conscious choice for those thoughts to not be just positive, but joyous, not only am I getting a lot done, I’m having a lot of fun. I’ve realised that when I have hundreds of things on my daily “to-do” list that even when I’ve possibly managed to accomplish an outstanding 99% of them, I still go to bed feeling frustrated and disappointed that I didn’t do it all.
I’ve learnt that with a realistic list I can let myself off the hook and be thankful at the end of the day of achieving my goals; realistic ones. I’ve accepted that not everyone is going to like me and that it is OK– a landslide victory in politics can be anything over 51% as I understand it. With this in mind, I think we can all stop worrying about what everyone else thinks because fortunately it really doesn’t matter. Chatting with other weird friends like myself, I’ve decided that being weird; standing out of the crowd, not complying with rules and regulations that go against the grain is not only OK but exactly what the world needs now. There’s much talk of “the awakening” and perhaps this is just what’s happening.
Masha Malka mentions in her interview on Marbella Now (Thursday 11.06.2020 on RTV Marbella) that 85% of attempted teen suicides felt their lives had no purpose; 93% of those were high achieving students. Young adults are clever enough to realise there is more to life than passing exams and following in their parents’ footsteps to join a society that seems to have lost its north. The world has so much more to offer them and we’re stealing every moment with “important” learning. It’s time to let them actually live their young lives freely, joyously, with carefree abandon. Let them discover themselves and find their own purpose as opposed to making them chose to obey a working regime that truly serves them no purpose.
Christopher Clover, founder of Panoramareal estate, celebrating 50 years of business this year in Marbella, says that he has never tried to sell property; his intention was always to guide those seeking to set up home and with that clear vision, everything else just fell into place.

Finding our purpose in life may mean daring to live up to our true potential. More often than not this means we might just have to break away from the crowd, forget about other people’s opinions, however well-intentioned and let ourselves evolve into the uniquely weird and wonderful human beings we were always destined to be.
Our future depends on it.
