Daily wise words to reflect upon [The DailyOM]

Make sure you aren’t running away from your problems, 
always moving towards something.

Have you checked out the new section here at Beautifulosophy to your right, called Today's DailyOM? Every day you get a new life wisdom here from the DailyOM team. As much as I love (and need!) fashion, beauty, glamour and light entertainment I know it´s best when it´s balanced with some reflection and mindfulness as well. It´s all about being fulfilled, which can only truly come from both sides. So those days when you feel the need for it, I know I have days when I definitely need it and days when I don´t, you can always find some wise words to reflect upon in your own life. 

From Todays DailyOM:
There are times when change - moving to a new city or a new home, or changing careers - is the right thing at the right time. But there are also times when the urge for change is really just a desire to run away from problems that need to be faced rather than avoided. These are the kinds of problems that recur in our lives. For example, issues with coworkers that seem to arise at every job we take, or repeatedly getting into unhealthy relationships. A move might temporarily distract us, and even cure the problem for a time, simply by taking us out of the situation in which the problem fully manifested itself. However, the problem will eventually appear again in our new situation. 

One way to make sure you aren’t running away from your problems is to notice whether you are moving towards something that is exciting in its own right, as opposed to something that is appealing only because it is not where you are now.
