infinite energy is all i really need....

have you ever thought about that.... what it would be like to have an infinite amount of something??

while a lot of people say money, health, time, friends, sex, drugs etc i don't think that's something that's all that important to me. i have spent many years caring for the critically ill and while i feel extremely blessed for my health i also realise that it's not important for my happiness. people who are ill, even dying often have the best outlooks on life and the best attitude when it comes to being grateful for all that they DO actually have.

money has never been important to me and once again i am full of gratitude that we can live in this magnificent country and live really well. but fancy cars, clothes, shoes etc is not something that i need to be happy. i take a lot from my travels to poorer countries and have learnt that family and community is more important.

when faced with the question of what i would want an infinite amount it stands out so clear to me and that's


with more energy i could

be more
do more
love more
give more
help more
teach more
be more patient
be more productive
care more
work more
feel more
play more
laugh more
live more
dance more
sing more
relax more
exercise more

and the list goes on

i want to give my family, my children, my friends, my work, my world more and energy is what i need to do it

what would you love more of??

You have a great outlook on life Shan, if more people shared your views we would live in a much nicer place.

Lovely Shan, you have such a wonderful outlook on life. I have often said I wish I had more time...but really if I had more energy I could use my time more effectively...what lovely wise words.

So true! More energy as there is so much good to be done in the world and so many people to share energy with... may we use our energy more wisely for maximum impact on those we love xox

Well said! I can relate to this, more energy would open up many more possibilities. Another thing I'd like to have more of is confidence. Sometimes I think of the things I haven't done in life because I didn't believe I could or would succeed / cared about what others thought. May everyone follow their dreams and live to their highest potential!

Beautiful post and a great thing to have 'more' of..... I would always say 'time' but like Anita said, if we had the energy we could fit more in!

Couldn't agree with you more Shan, with more energy I would definatly sing and dance more, but not in public. But would do the rest! Joxxoo

Hmmmm, I would definitely like more eneregy to achieve all that I want to achieve, but I would also like more mindfulness, to notice all the small things which happen each day, instead of continually chasing 'the future'. I keep waiting for 'the future', when actually it is right now!!
