They only add to you

This morning I was reading through an article I wrote earlier in the year.

I don’t remember exactly the hard work that went into it, I just remember that it was hard. But now when I think back to it, I am thankful for my previous self for doing the hard work.

Work seems hard when you do it, but if you think about a time when you’ll be reflecting on the hard work, it makes it easier. When you create things like this too, remember they (typically) aren’t things that can be taken away from you. They only add to you. Let that be a reminder the next time you need to push through something.

Merry Christmas, it’s been almost a year since I started blogging daily. Long may it continue!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
