Hope is an interesting thing. It’s a necessary thing. We hold onto it in times of crisis - and it used to be that hope would only appear in times of crisis.

As in the myth of Pandora’s box - ‘Hope’ is the last little twinkle of light left once all chaos is free to run riot over the earth.

In recent times it seems ‘hope’ is everywhere, despite the fact that real large scale crises in our western world are rare.
Instead of a comforting twinkle in times of hardship, Hope has become the drug we inject every time we face any minuscule challenge.

I agree with @jordanharbinger ‘s statement in his interview with @londonrealtv ... ‘hope is not a strategy.’ Most of our problems need strategies to help us overcome them. • The only time we should ‘hope’ is when all strategies fail •

I’ve had some interesting conversations about #feminism #toxicmasculinity #toxicfemeninity recently.
It seems like most people lay the blame of society’s problems at the feet of absent fathers. Whilst I do think there’s been a serious breakdown of the family unit in recent times, I struggle to see how it is only men who are to blame.
I watched the documentary #theredpillmovie recently, and I was saddened (but not shocked) to find that men are by default denied access to their children in cases of divorce - not necessarily because they’re bad parents, but because generally a mother is considered the primary caregiver and primary custody is often granted to her even if there’s sufficient evidence to suggest she’s not entirely capable.

Whilst I agree that women are primary caregivers in the first few years of life - that doesn’t and shouldn’t lessen the value or importance of fathers or men. I think it’s important for us women to recognise our responsibility to our husbands, brothers and fathers and be thankful for their selflessness.
I agree with what Don Corleone said - it takes ‘muscle’ to shoulder the responsibility of a family. It’s a real man’s game.

I think there needs to be more discussion around the nuances of identity. I think we use our group identities (faith, ethnicity, gender etc) as children as a means to help us understand our place in the world. As adults we should emerge from that unique individuals with our own opinions and a willingness to say what we think.

I’ve wrestled with my own identity - I’ve felt the pressure to abandon my ‘Punjabiness’ so I could enhance my ‘Sikhness.’ It always felt wrong - I could never quite separate the two because both were part of what made me who I am.
Whenever religious extremism of any kind occurs (no matter what religion) this pattern always emerges: the destruction of culture in favour of the dogmatised/ideologised version of the faith. In other words - tyranny.

To that I say - no, thank you.

I’ve been thinking a lot recently about society, ‘patriarchy’ and marriage.

To be blunt - I’ve had some judgement thrown my way for being a married 20 something woman. I’ve engaged in plentiful conversations with young women who feel (sadly) that marriage = a life of submission and servitude.

My response is this...Marriage is about choosing each other, wholly and absolutely. It is not by nature a ‘patriarchal institution’ designed to cripple women. It is instead the very foundation upon which the survival of our species has depended. It is the scaffold that holds society together; at the deepest level, it is the merging of two souls into one complete being.

There is no shame in loving someone so completely you would follow them to the ends of the earth. We are not made smaller or weaker by our commitments to one another.

I don’t know if anyone else on the #minimalism hype has ever come across this problem before, but I had this urge to buy something as a ‘treat’ for myself recently.
I did that thing where I kept a tab open with a few items in my ‘shopping basket’ and spent a fair bit of time mulling over whether or not to click that ‘checkout’ button.
Before risking falling back into old habits (#shopaholicsanonymous) I thought about ‘going shopping’ in my own wardrobe first.
Interestingly, I got just as much enjoyment out of looking at what I already had as I did when I was browsing the internet for new clothes.

Might have to make this a habit from now on... P.s. I closed the tab

Just a thought I thought I’d share with all you beautiful people on this Monday evening. I’ve found that I’ve tried really hard to make more time to practice ‘self love,’ but oddly it’s been stressing me out more.
If I don’t manage to take time out for the home spa day I had planned I start feeling guilty about not meeting my own expectations.
How do you practice self love?

Super excited about a few things...1. The fact that I won something at all (@chevronseclairs giveaway) and 2. getting stuck into this @bookoflift planner! I’m intrigued to see what thought provoking questions it’ll ask me to reflect on and I’m curious to see how it’ll impact my productivity.

I had every intention of reading a chapter of this last night, before bed. It didn’t happen.
I started reading it in December and still haven’t finished - a symptom of my life becoming plagued by less desirable activities.
I desperately want to be in a situation where I have more control of my time - so I can spend as much time as I like doing the things I love.

Freud recognised two opposing forces that drove all human decisions. The creative force (sex-drive) and the destructive force (death-drive). My understanding of Freudian theory is limited - but I’ve come to recognise the desire to self destruct within myself. Every time I reach for a chocolate bar instead of an apple, or wallow in self pity instead of dealing with the problems in front of me; I’m allowing my ‘death-drive’ to steer my decisions.

My counter to this is first to focus on the body. To avoid destructive decisions I’m going to remind myself about why I want to eat better - be better.

What’s your reason why?

I’ve always struggled with the problem of money vs time. After I graduated I felt like everyone around me was earning loads of money and buying nice things for themselves. I thought I wanted nice things too.
What I found was only a tiny number of things actually brought me genuine joy - but I kept buying because it was the only thing that seemed to justify me trading my time for work. I was trading the freedom to spend my time how I choose for the ability to buy things.

That time was necessary - work is necessary and I learned a lot about what was important to me. I learned what my ‘price’ was. As #DaveChapelle says ‘Name your price...if it ever gets bigger than the price that you name, get out of there.’ What’s your price?

So I’ve done some reflecting and some planning.
This year is going to be about building my lifestyle bit by bit. Which means I have to work on building good habits.
I’m starting small 🧡

What are your February goals?
