Life is a journey, not a destination. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Wow it’s my 100th Blog post on Journeys in Writing, I just can’t believe it, I’d really like to thank you all for being such great readers and supporters. I started this blog purely as a method to share and express insights through writing poetry and hopefully inspire you in some ways.
Life is a Journey and can change and adapt so much in such a short space of time but its up to us to steer to the way we want to go. You have all helped me do this in finding my way on my journey through supporting and in sharing all your wonderful inspiration too. Thank you.
Much has changed from the beginning to now and im sure it will throughout the next 100 posts. One thing I have really discovered is everything we experience is much better and richer when it is shared, we can all inspire each other in this way and I thank you all again for doing so too. I plan to release an e-book of inspirational poems as well as more insights in to my own journey very soon and will keep you posted on this.
I’d like to invite you all to join a webinar with the brilliant Vishen Lakhiani , who is one person who really inspires me because of his depth of being and the difference he is making throughout the world. Vishen will be leading the webinar and the first one is at 6pm this evening, there is also a chance to catch it at 7pm or at the same times tomorrow, so please sign up as soon as you can if you wish to experience it, it comes highly recommended 🙂 .
The webinar is called Consciousness Engineering and Vishen will talk you through his own very inspiring experience , the Consciousness engineering programme and a brilliant meditation experience, Please do sign up to experience it and enjoy.

Thank you all again
Every journey has value, gifts and lessons,
The journey is where true happiness lives
It cannot be sought or held, only lived,
Lifes for living, live for the journey.
~ M.L. Adams
What is within can never be lost
What is within the heart will always exist,
Heart & purpose exist as one
For this reason your purpose always continues on
In knowing your purpose and knowing your path
Wherever it leads; just be there to serve
~ M. L. Adams
Why do we often have resistance come up when we set ourselves goals?
Is there any purpose to this and if so why does it sometimes have to be so difficult?
I often ask myself this question and at times it can seem unfair that the road to achieving goals can be really tough. Then I have to remind myself that the bigger the goal and purpose, the bigger the obstacles will be.
Why? Well the one way I understand this is to liken it to exercise training. If we lift measly little weights that don’t push us at all then we are highly unlikely to achieve our goal. We have to lift a weight that is slightly tough and out of our comfort zone and the same goes for any other goal. To grow in to the person we want to be, we need some resistance.
If we remember that resistance is there to help us grow it makes any challenges easier and if anything as with exercise we can begin to find these challenges fun. Really it is always about our journey and our growth is a main part. When we become too fixated on any end goal, this is when we forget this and it becomes harder. With this we can also then unintentionally forget feeling good and having fun in the process, so I figured that resistance is good as long as we don’t resist the resistance 🙂
Life is always training
We can not wish or hope for someone else to take our journey,
It is up to us to take action and win,
We can not hope for it to be easy, for then it will not push us on
To stretch ourselves is to learn and grow,
To be and become something far more than we are now
We need to keep on growing, to do this we need to push on
To push to be this person, this person we know we can become
So resistance is not to be scared of, but a challenge that we must take on
It will then be our greatest ally, once we realise it is there to help us win
I’m re- posting this as it was around this time last year and it serves as powerful a reminder right now of the importance of personal power, one of intentionally creating in each moment, every single day.
We all have far more power over our lives than we sometimes realise, it’s just a matter of choosing where our focus goes. A daily practice however always.
