Learning

There’s a cure for aging that no one talks about. It’s called learning. In my mind, as long as you learn something new each day, stretch your personal frontiers and improve the way you think, you cannot grow old. Aging only happens to people who lose their lust for getting better and disconnect from their natural base of curiosity. – Robin Sharma

Another goal to add to my new schedule. So not only do I have to read and write everyday I have to make sure I learn something new as well. All these tasks go together though so it will work out.

I love to learn, I really do. One thing that is a bit pressing that I need to work on is learning Russian. This without a doubt will take years but that actually is something I should work on daily too. There is a chapter in Robin Sharma’s Greatness Guide where it talks about making a list of things you want to do before you die. That definitely would be beneficial to me to write out as well.

I have only one job today and after that I will go to the library to return a book then I plan to visit Arsenal

I live in the big and beautiful city of Montreal that has endless places to visit and activities so I need to explore it more often. Exploring, being outdoors, and visiting new places make me really happy and I need to do them. Robin Sharma also talks about enjoy the simple pleasures in life and those pleasures are truly what makes me the happiest. Time to stop starving myself and staying indoors feeling like I do not belong have no purpose in life. It’s time to go out and start living.

Windows of Opportunity

Each day, life will send you little windows of opportunity. Your destiny will ultimately be defined by how you respond to these windows of opportunity. Shrink from them and your life will be small. Feel the fear and run to them anyway, and your life will be big. – Robin Sharma, The Greatness Guide

My life thus far has been quite limited. It has overall been rather boring, with the exception of time spent with my boyfriend. I don’t exit my comfort zone very often and I’ve been dealing with the bad habit of staying inside, not eating, thinking negative things over and over again and simply not being healthy and productive. My health and overall well-being has slowly been deteriorating over the years and I have reached the point where I’ve had enough.

We had a very cold winter this year and the weather is finally getting warmer. I wanted to go out for a walk and take pictures today but I was too sick to do so. I have to go out for more walks and spend more time with nature instead of allowing myself to be consumed indoors watching videos and being consumed by social media. Not only do I not pursue the the windows of opportunity that life presents to me, the amount of opportunities have been small since I don’t stray far from home.

I am a Sagittarius; I crave adventure. It is time for more adventures.

First Post

Okay so once again (for the hundredth time) I am starting a new blog.
Will I ever stick to this and be consistent?

I am currently reading a book I picked up in a free little library in Saint-Henri the other day. It was meant to be for me to find this book: The Greatness Guide by Robin Sharma. I’ve recently also decided (again) that I have to try harder to make changes to my lifestyle. This book is great and I do intend on writing about some of the ideas expressed in it.

It has only be a few days since the new beginning has started. Two new plans are to read for at least 1 hour everyday and to write in a journal daily.
