Were you ruined, or made? When the unexpected strikes.

When the unexpected strikes, does it ruin you, or make you?

We are a product of our environment, and that environment includes things that are completely out of our control.

When you have a masterpiece in the works and the unexpected strikes and changes things completely, do you just give up on the masterpiece?

No! You make do with what you have. You give your best shot in spite of the unexpected. And that’s what makes it better. That you did something in spite of the unexpected.

The unexpected goes into your masterpiece. The unexpected doesn’t ruin you, it makes you.

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.


Sign up to the weekly Mountains of Wisdom newsletter, follow me on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, TikTok, Clubhouse, all @kiwiyamabushi), or send me an email via the link below to stay in touch.


Tim.
