Yesterday I took one puff out of a friend’s joint.
It fascinates me that Canada now legalizes marijuana. I used to be a major pot smoker in my late teens and early twenties. But I tapered off due to the anxiety that resulted. Even though anxiety resulted after smoking weed, I still took part in the action based on friend’s involvement and personal addiction with the substance.
I eventually stopped completely, but yesterday I took a puff.
I felt mildly off for the rest of the day. This eventually caught up to me later in the evening when my old anxious self took over. My mental strength collapsed and I was no longer clear. With all of that being said, I got back to my routine today and I once again feel good and strong.
So why does this happen? Is it just my own personal biochemical makeup that cannot handle the stuff? Or is there a deeper routed problem that the weed is telling me? I’m so fascinated by what this substance does to me and I’m sure their are thousands of similar yet different stories out there that can relate.
I feel really good today. Ive worked hard that last couple of days and I believe hard work pays off. My mind feels focused and sharp. My energy level is at a high. And, my overall happiness has increased throughout the last couple of days.
What I have done…
- Wake up
- Make bed
- Drink water
- 100 push ups
- shower (trying to decrease the temperature daily)
- Journal/view goals
These steps are currently working for me which I found off of Tim Ferris’ website. Maybe give these steps a try for a couple days and see how you feel. Post and share!
I feel good today. I look back on the 5 months since my transformation and I have accomplished quite a bit. I have moved out with my girlfriend, completed by BA, visited family in Holland, got a serving job, and learned more than I ever have in my entire life. I’m sure I am missing a few more but truth be told, I don’t even know how I got here lol.
What’s next… Changing my brain and changing my life has been a daily journey. Every single day I want my health and energy to improve. But this takes time. I am searching for my calling, my mission, my passion. I am ready for a new challenge in life that will bring my joy, abundance, and fulfillment. I feel excited for the new opportunities that will come and I will do my best to ensure the success in my life.
I will also be more active with these blog posts because even writing this right now, I feel incredibly mindful. I guess what I’ll say to the readers… write things down. I have benefited so much from just writing down my thoughts.
After a very interesting month, I am back to blogging. But I don’t just want to blog for the sake of blogging. I want to have a branded blog that people can use and apply to their own lives. I was thinking along the lines of “Learning” or continue with “Changing your Brain.” See, I don’t exactly know what this brand is going to be just yet so I believe just posting what I have learned that day could be a good start.
I will begin this post with what I have learned today. I will post something that I have learned and can apply to my own life, which can hopefully translate into other people’s lives and help make a difference. I am not entirely sure how much I will do this but the more I learn, the more I will be blogging.
So today I had an adventure. I had a connection flight yesterday that lasted around 7.5 hours. And today I had another connection flight in Toronto that lasted 16 hours. Almost there hahahaha! I am having a great time. My experiences have been laughable and I am learning along the way. Today I managed maybe 2 hours of sleep in a grassy park in Toronto.
I have noticed that my interest level in blogging has leveled out. I feel so good and happy in my life that maybe this isn’t my mission. I will still follow through with blogging on occasion because ya never know!
With regards to my life, I am constantly watching my thoughts and emotions. My loved ones question my moves and are extremely concerned about me. Deep down I know I am on an exciting path. I fly to the Netherlands on Sunday. I am looking forward to discovering more about myself and my true capabilities. Thank you so much to whomever is reading these blogs. I hope I can inspire you!
So I want to enforce that progress in your life will contribute to your happiness. I am noticing that it is the key to a healthy lifestyle. Progress will help you see success in your life which you can continue to build, creating an abundant life after years of practice.
But progress doesn’t have to be so hard. Your progress and passion can go hand in hand which means you don’t have to work another day in your life. We are all finding our passions/callings in life. I believe that no matter what anyone tells you, it is necessary for you to follow what you truly desire. What is more of a failure… to fail at something you dream about? Or to fail at ever pursing that dream?
I had a fantastic day. Tony Robbins once said that progress = happiness. I can definitely attest to that today. I followed my day planner and I achieved everything I set out to achieve. I studied myself and my education. I exercised. I tried something new. I feel fully accomplished today.
My point for today is this… if we can successfully make progress each and every day for 1 week, 1 month, and 1 year, what would our lives look like?
Well, this is the purpose of my blog. To show anyone who is curious what it is like to successfully Change Your Brain resulting in a changed life.
Please follow me @changing_brains on twitter to feel motivated and inspired. I know my follower base is small but I don’t care. This isn’t about making money. This is about help other people change there lives. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your evening.
Lots of Love! Cheers!!
I am scared and excited. I just booked a two week trip to Europe to see someone close to my heart who is not well. I can’t really afford it, but I know it’s what I have to do.
I am leaving in 10 days and I have a lot to do!
So I find myself completely all over the place. This isn’t a bad thing at all. It’s actually very exciting. I am trying to figure out who I am supposed to be, not what I am supposed to do. Last week I would have told you that social media was going to be my business… but I don’t know if that’s the truth anymore. Maybe a hobby, rather.
I am faced with many big decisions that I am excited to pursue and I am trying to make the best possible choice (to contribute to the fulfillment of my life).
- Visit a close friend in Holland who’s lung is collapsing
- Pursue a career with the organization that saved my life
- Find Tony Robbins
- Complete my final course of my degree
- Save my girlfriend
#5. I know this is intense, but it is the truth. She is the most beautiful girl and she deserves the best! I told myself that once I broke through, I would make it my #1 priority to share this amazing life with her. But she doesn’t see it. It makes me wonder how I can do this… How I can bring her into this beautiful world. Our paths are currently different but I truly believe this girl is my destiny. \
#4. I hate this final course. It is so dry and irrelvant to my current success. It hurts my sole. But I make it fun. I laugh at the irony and I laugh at how hard it is. But it makes it fun. Deep down I know this isn’t what I need. But, for me to progress my relationship… I must do this. Another reason is that maybe one day i’ll actually need my business degree. I don’t need it now, but could eventually. So, why not get it out of the way. Right?
#3. Having a face-to-face conversation with Tony Robbins is a dream of mine. I set it in one of my goals and I truly believe we are supposed to meet one day. This will be something that will happen if it is meant to be!
#2. Pursuing a career with the organization that saved my life would be truly remarkable. I know I can be an asset to the founder of this company. Maybe the idea of working in the same industry but not for this company could be an exciting possibility as well. My knowledge is just beginning so time will tell.
#1. I believe this is the first step into my journey. I know I can truly discover many things about myself if taken this leap of faith. I know I will find peace and gratitude along the way. I know I can share my love to others that might currently need it. I know this is what I have to do!
