For me, axioms are
sayings / quotes / euphemisms we hear and say in life when they’re seemingly apropos.
In this new chapter where I’ve been injured, this has taken on a whole new meaning and level. Many ask where my mental fortitude is coming from and if it’s real. I constantly check-in with myself around the whole range of emotions to come with this enormous challenge.
But I’ll tell you truthfully: when everybody goes home and the lights go down, I don’t cry myself to sleep.
I’m the same guy you’ve been hearing from on Facebook and talking to via text and phone. And the other negative parts of the spectrum will come. I welcome them. I’ll experience them fully. I’ll then let them go.
However, my point is that I’ve paid thousands of dollars on personal growth work and I have to say that once again it’s all worth it. I’ve been a student of how to be the best human I can be for a decade now.
Those skills aren’t something I have to remind myself to use. Like, ‘Rob you gotta be positive.’ That’s ingrained in me and it’s what automatically comes out as a natural response.
So as it pertains to axioms, what I’ve found is that applying, playing, and working with these axioms reveal a true wisdom that have a potential to make us more whole, more complete, more wise, more of a gift, more of a contribution in this life.
