This week I’ve been surprised at how many times I caught myself not really being in the moment, which actually created a self- fulfilling prophecy of sorts. I wanted so desperately for a situation to be a certain way that I was unable to actually be there. I was so worried that it would be the way it was in the past that I was unable to be in the present. My head was literally in the past. This happened twice in business situations this week. Luckily, during the second instance I was able to recognize what was going on and move through it. It felt like a first.
We constantly learn this lesson in Florida. As this weekend approaches, so does a storm. There’s always a possibility that a tropical storm will turn into a hurricane. It’s almost mental training to not let our mind go into overdrive and get lost in panic and fear. We have to stay very tuned to what is actually happening and respond according to that. Being tuned to reality is the hardest lessons have. Are we in the past, present or future? I often find deep peace in the present moment.
Hola! This reading speaks powerfully for me. I’m trying to stay present as I transition from one station in life to another. I have decided to turn the angst that I’m carrying into taking action steps that are reasonable and gentle. I want to get through this period like yesterday. This keeps me from being present for myself and for others. It’s not easy but I’m working it out…in the moment. I have to remind myself to be kind to myself and that things are slowly evolving. It’s ok…just breathe
This is really hard. I applaud your efforts. I’m working on it too. I’m trying to enjoy myself during a time that is challenging. But, I am focusing on finding enjoyment here and now…and it actually changes the situation. All we can do is try to focus our mind and keep bringing it back.
