Earlier, I chose the word wisdom as a topic for my blog, wisdom acquired through life experiences. Things you have done, things you experienced, a life lived and a life you keep on living brings so much wisdom. Knowledge, acquired through education, reading, listening, workshops, podcasts, lectures...the list goes on and hopefully so does the learning. You don't ever have to stop the learning, bringing things into your world that keep you up to date on topics that interest you, things you want to know more about, even news topics. Be careful to not fill yourself up so much with the knowledge that you don't leave space for the wisdom.
There is so much out there in the world that can cause you stress, make you feel angry and frustrated, remember you are in control of what you know and want to know. We can also suffer from knowledge overload, too much information, too many different sources and opinions. I think we can all relate to this, just from the last year we had, too much information and too many different opinions. This brings up the point of knowing who you are, what you stand for and what resonates with you, stay true to your own self. Don't let others influence you or convince you otherwise. Knowledge, know what you want to know, listen to what you want to hear, read what you want to better understand. If someone you know shares information, don't just take their word for it, do your own research, be your own source of knowledge.
The most important part of what I do with my clients is to make what I share, SIMPLE, information they can relate to and understand. We can still fill ourselves with knowledge and keep life simple in the process, information that will make your life better or improve it. Information that keeps things positive in your life, motivates you!! You don't have to read, listen to or watch anything that you don't want to, or that will bring you down or put you in a space of negativity. Knowledge, your knowledge is enough, don't try to compare what you, how well educated you are or well versed you are. Life is too important to waste it on things that don't matter or mean anything to you, there is a big world out there with a lot of information, keep it simple!!!
