The Million Star Hotel – free entry and you can stay for as long as you like
What’s the million star hotel? When you look up at night are you mesmerised by the stars? When you reflect on the vastness of the night sky do you ever feel awe? Sometimes it feels unfathomable to contemplate what’s up there/out there. If we did it more regularly we’d feel the benefits. We’re so small in comparison. There’s a whole new world of opportunity out there.
I liked the take on being in nature – the million star hotel – as a happiness practice from the article below.

Question 2 - How much do you want it?
Want what, I hear you say? Well before answering that question – what’s Question 1? Have a guess? Yep, what do you want?
Progress can be planned and made when we are clear about what we want – large or small, macro or micro. Question 2 delves into our desire which is the fuel that helps us overcome the essence of Question 3.
What’s Question 3? How much discomfort are you willing to take to get better? How much are you willing to struggle before it gets better? Are you willing to feel frustrated before any signs of progress and still come back for more?
Question 1 gives us direction. Question 2 gives us fuel. And Question 3 gives us agility.

Question of the week:
How could you make a difference without anyone knowing?

Could you do something without the need for a pat on the back because it’s the right thing to do?
Will you do something without the need for acknowledgment?
Quote of the week:
Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth - Pema Chodron
How often would you be willing to move closer to the truth?
Feel the fear and do it anyway?
Fear as it appears is a reaction to the story that I might lose something.
Maybe and maybe not. Take one step and see.
