So this post will be a little introspective and I’ll talk about myself a lot lol. My hope maybe is that it maybe pushes you to see some changes in yourself as well.
This past year has been pretty fucking intense and it’s very interesting how many things have shifted drastically in so little time. Most of the changes I experienced have been in terms of perspective. These new insights have pulled me into being in harmony with the universe and have allowed me to love unconditionally which really feels fucking good.
Before I started this thing, let’s call it a “spiritual journey,” I was really focusing on my career and wealth. Tony Robbins has this
These days everything on the wheel is perfectly filled except career and wealth. Oh, the irony haha. You can see the wheel I’m talking about below.
So here are some of the changes that I experienced through this year. It’s a retrospective look at everything in a “before and after” style.
SELFISH BEING ➡️ UNCONDITIONALLY LOVING
This might sound a little intense but a year ago, my main focus in life was to survive and most of my thoughts were selfish to the point of paranoia. I literally had a security camera in front of my house and carried a knife with me at all times. I still do now but it’s just to peel my oranges and apples thankfully.
These days, I trust everyone because I understand egos are just outer layers and when it’s peeled, you can see who a person’s purest form, a loving soul. I feel like my mind is now clear of dozens of situations that will never happen.
CARNIVORE ➡️ VEGETARIAN/VEGAN
Holy shit, this one was like the biggest shift for me. I literally ate seriously unhealthy shit before. My
What shifted my thinking? Well besides eating some delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes that my friends cooked, I read this book “Sapiens” and there was a chapter that spoke about the cruelty that happened in these slaughterhouses and it just touched me in my core. Why would I pay for animals to be slaughtered? It was too much to handle. I have slowly transitioned into a vegetarian/vegan diet and even learned to cook some of these dishes 🙂
What’s even fucking cooler, is that I enjoy cooking now when I genuinely hated cooking a year ago lol. Now, it’s so much fun figuring out how things pair together and how to create unique flavours. Plus my female friends love it when I cook with them haha. So yeah, cooking is a big part of my life now. Who would have fucking thought
CONSUMER ➡️ ECO-FRIENDLY?
I feel like this one is more of an extension of veganism since the veganism lifestyle means you consume as much organic stuff as possible which means not using stuff that are made from animal by-products and minimising plastic use.
What shifted my thinking here? Well, it’s a bunch of things and of course. My friends gave me more than enough information but there was this one night when I was walking and I saw a plastic bag move by itself. I had no idea what the fuck it was but it happened to be a frog stuck in plastic. I felt so fucking disgusted on how much we’ve fucked up their natural way of being. I let the frog free. I also remember something my friend from the UK told me that I’ll never forget. You can find the quote below.
There’s no such thing as throwing out the trash. Why? Because it still stays on our planet.
MATERIALISTIC ➡️ SPIRITUAL?
This change was such a strange one for me since I never really believed in energies or anything that I couldn’t prove or see. Being obsessed over capitalism and consumerism made me become a very practical person that sees things in relation to my ego and how it helps it move forward in the world.
Spirituality can mean a lot of things to every single individual. To me, it means living an unguided lifestyle where love and connection supersede the conventional laws of society.
Recently I decided to sell all my shit and I now feel very little attachment to anything which would be mind-fucking-blowing 🤯to my old way of thinking. This change in thinking happened right after a very beautiful soul called Rina told me how the universe seems to work.
SOCIALLY ANXIOUS ➡️ ADVENTUROUS AS FUCK?
When I was a little kid I had a couple of those traumatic events, if that’s how you call it, that kinda shaped my personality quite a bit. I feel like I haven’t fully let go but I think I took a step forward in accepting some stuff already. One of those events was when I left my hometown and was forced to move and leave my best friend. I became quite the shy kid after that and was everything but confident. I might talk about this later on because childhood traumas are fascinating in my opinion.
These days, I feel like I did a good job of letting go of all that baggage so I don’t think too much now lol. In summary, I basically don’t fear much anymore. This includes two of my biggest fears which were talking to people and doing risky things. Hell, these days I’m jumping off 20-foot waterfalls and hitchhiking which was impossible and stupid for me since I use to run dozens of scenarios in mind for why not to do these things.
So that’s it. That’s my one year transformation in a nutshell that was done without setting any goals. It was all unguided and organic which blows my mind a little bit lol. Life is pretty fucking beautiful when you just let go and let shit happen.
In the next blog post, we talk about traumas and some slightly dark stuff maybe.
